Askew Hip Hop Loops

Publisher Mode Audio

Price £18

Contact info@modeaudio


Welcome to the world of Askew, where lopsided hip-hop beats sit alongside rasping percussion and delicate, dusty keys. This new pack from Mode Audio contains 530MB of atmospheric loops, tail samples for the loops, and drum samples in WAV, Apple Loops or REX2 formats, plus 117 music and drum MIDI files. Additionally, the Ableton version adds 12 projects, and the ReFill version adds 22 Dr. Octo Rex patches. This is a pack that doesn’t play by the rules, with some unusual but interesting production choices, quirky grooves and evocative melodies. There’s plenty of side-chain pump adding wonky movement to the loops, and recorded sound giving added texture and organic warmth.

About MusicTech

The new issue of MusicTech is on sale from Thursday 21st September where this month we go all out and show you how to record EVERYTHING! Across 12-pages we cover the best ways to position your microphones and accurately capture the vast majority of instruments you’ll ever need to record. To help you along the way, our Beginner’s Guide this month takes an extensive look into the world of dynamic, condenser and ribbon mics. Elsewhere we sate our inner geek with our in-depth interview with the pioneering Radiophonic Workshop, whose rich history begins way back in the early 60s, where they painstakingly created innovative soundtracks for the BBC, most notably the theme for Doctor Who. As if that wasn’t enough we’ve also assembled a special 24-page supplement full of our favourite reader and pro studio interviews, free with this issue.
