Prime Loops has released the 8-Bitstep Sample Pack - we'll let them explain it in their own words...
Some genres clash whilst others gravitate towards one another. 8-Bitstep sees Glitch Hop & Dubstep bonding together with a unique formula of premium shockwaves!
Dubstep and the 8-Bit sound of Glitch Hop have crossed paths momentarily in the past with artists such as Oblivion, Terror Danjah and Caspa steering their productions through murky worlds of both genres to staggering effect. Prime Loops have taken inspiration from this bold blurring of borders and 8-Bitstep provides the perfect solution for those looking to drop some glitch filth on their productions.
This 340MB pack takes the half-tempo beats and wobbling bass adventures of Dubstep and mashes them together with the gunk soaked arpeggios and leads associated with Glitch Hop. All yours via direct download from PrimeLoops.com, 8-Bitstep delivers 6 folders of Arps, Bass, Drums, FX, Lead and Synth loops, dropping them straight into your download folder.
To add any of these files to your DAW, all you have to do is click and drag the sample from your download folder, hover over your software sampler and drop it right in. If you've already got a mix on the go, the sample will sync automatically to the key and tempo but if you want to change that tempo, you can just click the end of the sample when it's in the mix and drag it out for a slower tempo or squeeze it down to make things tighter.
So if you're ready to dive into 8-Bit melodies whilst maintaining your dedication to Dubstep, 8-Bitstep from Prime Loops will supply your sample archive with all the huge half-time beats, deranged arpeggios, rabid bass and turbulent leads you require and it's all completely royalty free!
