Roland and online music education tool Melodics have announced a new partnership in the form of the Beat Maker Sample Pack x Melodics Series.
The series features professionally crafted sample content from global artists, along with companion lessons to help further the development of finger drumming skills on the SP-404MKII Creative Sampler and Effector. The first release within the series, Messy Samples by Lionclad, is live today.
Messy Samples by Lionclad features Seoul-based producer Lionclad, who brings her finger drumming expertise to this one-of-a-kind sample selection. Users can access a library of pre-recorded lo-fi backbeats, chill hip-hop groovers, and off-kilter rhythms, or use the sample material to create new remixes and compositions. This sample pack is available as a project, ready to load in the SP-404MKII with samples and patterns arranged in eight banks of ready-to-play loops and one-shot samples.
The 128 DAW-ready WAV files can also be imported into users’ favourite music production software and hardware samplers, and files are clearly labeled with tempo and key information to help streamline workflow.
