Hospital Records team up with Loopmasters for new sample series

Loopmasters are proud to present a brand new collection of producer-led sample packs from the legendary Drum and Bass label, Hospital Records. The first instalment (to be released digitally, with DVD formats for the rest of the series) is brought to you by the godfather of liquid funk Nu:Tone.

Nu:Tone who has created an awesome collection of royalty free drum and bass samples to give future breakbeat pioneers an unprecedented palette of sonic colours from which to produce many future masterpieces with.

Since signing to Hospital in 2003 Nu:Tone has come through the ranks to become one of the most highly respected producers in the scene, with everyone from LTJ Bukem to Dillinja busting his tunes. Nu:Tone takes pride in everything he does and its been no different with his approach to making this sample pack for Hospital / Loopmasters.

Nu:Tone's musical skills have made a big difference to the types of sounds and samples found in this collection, with a consummate selection of lush Rhodes patterns, musically interesting and perfectly recorded Piano loops, alongside a complementary collection of String loops, which have been crafted intelligently with the dance floor always in mind.

"Dan is among the elite few producers in D'n'B who scores a 100% hit rate in terms of sonic perfection within his production, and that is all down to his choice of sounds, his break manipulation and his understanding of what does and doesn't work when combining elements", says Tony Coleman from Hospital Records.

The collection includes over 172 samples, including 20 Growling and Subsonic bass lines, 26 full Drum loops with variations, 20+ Rhodes, Piano and String loops and 12 Synth patterns full of flavour and dripping with inspiration for breakbeat producers worldwide. If that wasn't enough there are 21 patches ready to play in most soft samplers that include 16 Bass Patches, 40+ Single Drum Samples, 13 Beat Fill samples, and 9 FX hits.

In the future, Loopmasters will be bringing you Hospital DVD collections from the rest of the resident nurses including Danny Byrd, Cyantific, Logistics, Syncopix and this space!

Tech Specs: 172 Wav and Rex2 Samples, 21 Patches for Kontakt, Reason, Halion, EXS, SFZ compatible soft samplers, 80 Loops at 174 Bpm, and 92 Single Sounds.
