Prime Loops have released the Drumstep Revolt Sample Pack. A spokesperson had this to say:
"What do you get when you cross the steady half-time rumble of Dubstep with the frantic atmospheres of Drum n Bass? The answer is Drumstep Revolt, and this latest release from sample pack producers Prime Loops perfectly encapsulates every element of this conflicted hybrid genre!
Spawning from the sounds of artists such as Dub Foundation, Heist, Hazard, Original Sin and Taxman, Drumstep takes the half-time beat structures of Dubstep and fuses them with the faster elements of Drum n Bass. Elements of this subgenre are often present in Dubstep and DnB remixes, instantly recognisable by the standard 140BPM tempo, creating a satisfying contrast with the frenzied fundamental elements of Drum n Bass.
Combining 5 folders of Bassline Loops, Drum Loops, Drum One-Shots, SFX Loops and Synth Loops, DRUMSTEP REVOLT delivers over 190MB of brand new audio to your sample library. Take your pick from over 170 individual samples that have all been engineered to sync with any major software! Simply select a sample from the download folder, drag towards your DAW and drop it straight into the mix. Each of these samples is delivered in pristine 24-bit high definition clarity and is yours to use completely royalty free! Whether you're constructing your own half-time patterns from the expansive One-Shots folder or laying the foundations with one of the 35 pre-constructed Drum Loops included, there's a huge variety of Bass, Synth and SFX to add in to the mix; expect to find sounds ranging from sonorous sci-fi, heavy chopped-up fuzz to wildly sporadic with a smattering beeps and bleeps! If you're ready to get involved, this pack is available via direct download from PrimeLoops.com now."
