Prime Loops has announced the release of Granular Raindrops: Tape Melodies, a brand new sample pack by Komorebi Audio.
Granular Raindrops contains over 170 MB of melodic ambient samples recorded to tape, then driven through granular effects units. It has been inspired by the sounds of artists such as Bones, Grayera, Hainbach, Amulets, and William Basinski.
Dark and haunting keys sit alongside granular style arps while droning and distant ambient pads provide an ethereal and heavily textured backdrop.
The synth sounds in this pack are a mixture of real-world analogue sounds resampled from the Moog Mother 32 semi-modular synth and popular synth plugins such as Sylenth and Serum.
Microcassettes were used, warped and resampled to create the unstable and warm tone heard throughout this pack. Skit, Komorebi Audio head sound designer, opted to use these instead of full-size cassettes as the lofi and unpredictable nature of microcassettes and vintage dictaphones added a uniquely retro and nostalgic feel to the loops run through them.
Granular Raindrops costs $12.95 at Prime Loops. All samples are 100% royalty-free. They’re suitable for genres such as Ambient & Chill, Hip Hop, Trap, Downtempo, etc.
