The second instalment in Looptone’s Hip Hop Keyboard Chops series sees top UK session keyboardist George Cooper (U2, Joss Stone, MF Doom, Hans Zimmer, et al) flexing his fingers once again in the production of another essential library of acoustic and electric piano progressions and lines.
In the Rhodes folder, you’ll find 69 EP loops in the keys of B and D, at tempos of 81 and 87 BPM, taking in warm chord sequences, sparkling melodics and funky riffs. George has deliberately kept many of the loops quite sparse, making them easy to slot into any mix; and the instrument in question has been recorded and engineered to bring out the best of its inherent warmth, character and tonality. The 96 acoustic piano loops, meanwhile, come in the keys of B, D and G, at 81, 87 and 93 BPM, and serve up everything from spiky grooves and cheeky top-line motifs to evocative sustains, loungey chords, and more.
On top of that lot, Hip Hop Keyboard Chops 2 also features 90 basses, leads, FX, Moog synth loops, and over 100 righteous live drum grooves, all perfectly primed for use with the keyboard samples, but wholly viable for separate deployment in their own right too.
Steeped in groovy vibes and positively glowing with that captivating live feel that only a great player can bring, Hip Hop Keyboard Chops 2 is a grab bag of authentic piano, Rhodes and synth lines for all your hip-hop, soul, funk, house, R&B, and jazz-influenced projects.
In detail, the pack contains 735 MB of content, comprising 359 audio files in pristine 24-bit stereo WAV format, at 81-93 BPM.
