LoopCache release sample collection where old school meets the new      09/07/08

8 Bit Beats

LoopCache tells us that their newly released 8 Bit Beats is a mix of old and new school sounds. They say that 8 Bit Beats takes the machines and sounds of yesteryear and blends them into something altogether new.
8 Bit beats contains samples and loops created using sounds from the Gameboy, Elektron SID Station and a host of Retro 8 Bit emulators. All recorded at 24bit quality, normalised and edited for minimum hiss. LoopCachecom believe that this collection is ideal for everything from Nu-Rave and Electro House to Chiptune and Left field electronica.
8 Bit Beats Includes over 700 single hits (Kicks, Bass, Cyms, Claps, FX, etc) and over 500 Drum, Percussion & Synth loops in both Wav and Rex2 formats. Over 1700 samples in total.
