Loops De La Creme, the online music sample library store, has announced it is releasing a Surprise Sample Pack Version 2. SSP2 is a free to download sample pack featuring audio loops, instrumental samples, and patches for the NI Kontakt Player. It is classified as donationware – free to download with no minimum donation).
This sample pack is unique in that users don’t know the contents of the sample pack before downloading it. But fear not, because BPB is here to spill the beans and give you the lowdown on exactly what is inside Surprise Sample Pack 2! Spoiler Alert – If you would prefer the contents to be a surprise then skip reading and go straight to Loops Da Creme Bandcamp and download this amazing sample pack now.
For those of you who have decided to read on, here are the juicy details. The contents of this Surprise Sample Pack 2 are sorted into three separate categories – one-shot samples, loops and KI (Kontakt Instrument) patches. The one-shot files are standard WAV format (24-bit, 48 KHZ), and they feature a diverse collection of sounds ranging from cool electronic perc hits to complex sound effects. There is a total of 49 one-shot samples included in Surprise Pack 2.
The loop section of the sample pack is organized into three distinct groups – progressive tribal sounds, vintage drums and organic sound textures. There are 14 loops in total, each with its own unique and high-quality sound. The tribal loops are particularly outstanding, and I highly recommend them – I will most certainly be using them myself in the future!
Finally, we have the Kontakt Instrument section of the Surprise Sample Pack 2. This is a powerful sub bass patch that is perfect for lovers of hip-hop or other similar music with a strong emphasis on deep bass. The sub bass in based on a sine wave and gives users the options to layer with other sounds using just one click of the mouse. You can saturate the bass notes as well in the Kontakt player with the simple custom user interface.
In summary, the Surprise Sample Pack 2 is a wonderful collection of sounds. The fact that it can be downloaded completely for free is a bonus (although donations are recommended because it is an extremely high-quality group of sounds). You can download it from the Bandcamp page linked below, and I highly recommend to do so if you are a music enthusiast. There are numerous other worthwhile freebies on the Loops De La Creme website including the previous iteration of this sample pack that was released a while ago.
