Loopmasters Progressive House & Mainroom Review
Loopmasters is well-known for their wide range of edm-style sample and sound libraries. One of their last products is „Progressive House and Mainroom“, created by David Lubner, who was already involved in the creation of other products like Big Room Anthems, Funky Deep Grooves, Tech House Pleasers and Progressive House Bombs.
Progressive House and Mainroom comes with a weight of over 2 GB content, including the main content in wav format, next to Apple Loops & Rex2 as alternative formats for the loop content, which are all key and tempo labeled, finalized by sampler patches for Kontakt, Halion, EXS24, SFZ and Reason NNXT. The library is also available in different split-packages like „Bass Loop Pack“, „Drum Loop Pack“ and others for a lower price. In detail Progressive House and Mainroom contains:
- 64 Bass Loops
- 160 Drum Loops
- 218 Percussion Loops
- 107 Music Loops
- 126 Drum Hits
- 50 SFX Hits
- 25 Vocoded Stabs
- 83 Soft Sampler Patches (EXS24, Kontakt, Halion, SFZ, NNXT)
- Loops in 24Bit wav, Apple Loops & Rex2
Bass Loops – 64 loops in total, they go from distorted and experimental to classic and simple. Most of them using very basic melodies, several bass loops using the same melodie, which makes it easy to use them in the production, by exchanging them quick or layering them.
Drum Loops – 160 loops in total, in our eyes the best part of the package. All loops are punchy, clean mixed and rich of details. Every main loop comes with different variations, which allows an easy build of complex drum arragements.
Percussion Loops – 218 loops in total, wide spreaded facettes, same clean and dynamic as the drum loops – a great ressource of addon and fill material.
Synth Loops – 107 loops in total, same as on the bass loops, some of them using the same melodies or coming in several versions. The difference between the several versions is sometimes a little bit to small. All in all you can find here basic sounding synthlines but also some really nice earcatches.
Drums and FX – this folder contains 126 drum hits, where we would have liked some more samples in there, compared to the big amount of drum and percussion loops. Next to this you can find 50 SFX samples, again very clean and good sound quality. As last part of the package there are 25 vocoded stabs, which sounds good, but for our taste, not enough „vocoded“.
All in all, Loopmasters has delivered once again a solid sample library for edm musicians, filled with many essentials and creative loops, all them in a clean and good sounding quality.
