Rankin Audio – Sample Packs

Rankin Audio

Written by guest reviewer Juxtapose, one half of The Beatslappaz.

Sometimes it’s worth looking for sample packs that aren’t labelled “Breaks” to get your fix. Rankin Audio, the brainchild of High Rankin has been delivering top notch sample packs covering all the other key electronic music genres. They have also just recently launched a monthly subscription service to deliver unique samples every month for a fee. Though not labeled as breaks, there’s definitely something here for the intrepid producer …

Dubstep, Trap and DNB Subscription – £9.95 per month

It’s no secret that as both the Beatslappaz and Juxtapose I’ve always leaned heavily on Rankin Audio to provide clean, heavy drum samples that cut through a complicated mix. The drum samples that come with the dubstep and trap packs always deliver and the ones here are likewise unmissable.

The loops range between 140bpm and 174bpm, so your milage will vary with the included music loops when applying them to a breakbeat tempo. With that said, every loop can be used for inspiration, including grabbing chord progressions (the key is labelled on each sample) or using the provided bass and synth Hits to recreate them at the needed speed. The 10 included Massive presets are also excellent.

I think any breaks producer will find a lot of use with the single hits and Massive presets in this pack, which is worth the price of admission alone. Recommended.

House and Garage Subscription – £9.95 per month

Fans of the Stanton Warriors latest sounds rejoice – this is the pack for you. Filled with melodic, beautiful stabs and loops combined with bouncy bass patterns, any one of the sounds included could catapult you into writing your next bass music hit.

Once again the samples are provided as a mix of loops and hits but with the tempo set at 124bpm, just about every loop could be put straight into a breaks project as is or cut up with minimal fuss. Unfortunately there are no Massive presets included in this pack, but the bass and synth can of course be put into any sampler.

The drums are geared more towards the house sound, so you’ll find the hits here to be a bit more subtle than the previous pack – however the strength is in the percussive grooves which will add some great rhythm to your tunes.

I’m a big fan of this sound growing in breaks so this pack is highly recommended.

Complete Subscription (Both packs) – £15.95 per month

As a producer, I found things from both packs that will help with my work – uncompromising drums in the Trap pack and brilliant forward-thinking bass patterns and synth samples in the House pack. For just £15.95 you won’t be disappointed, and who knows? Maybe they’ll inspire you to explore some of the other genres that are on offer…

These particular packs may not be available at the time of reading, but trust us when we say you will definitely find something suitable for your audio needs by signing up to the Rankin Audio subscription service.

Under This – Breaks Assault Vol.2 [SAMPLE PACK]

Breaksassaultvol

Latvian breakers Under This have unleashed the second part of their sample pack series, Breaks Assault. This is a must for any producer, bedroom or proffesional alike and includes 150 high quality samples broken down into basslines, drumloops, FX & vocals, leads, tops & percussion. A lot of the breaks sample packs floating around contain half baked breakbeats with no real conviction and sometimes very little breakbeat. This one however is made by artists with a real passion for the scene and it stands out in their sounds. Hard hitting, authentic breaks, real quality basslines (no cheesy melodies) and very usuable vocals.

This is better than most of the paid for packs around at the moment and you can get this one for free, so what are you waiting for. Just make sure you check them out at www.facebook.com/underthis
