Midnight is a collection of synth and electronic drum loops inspired by the sounds of M83. Created in collaboration with Look Mum No Drums, this brand new collection contains 603 samples, covering epic synth pads, basslines, modular sequences, arpeggios, leads, drum and percussion loops, one-shot drums, vocal plucks, and bass guitar lines. Tempos range from 65bpm for languid ambient compositions through to 125BPM for upbeat indie tracks. Loops can be layered and new ideas can be found by arranging different loops together in creative ways.
As well as synth, bass and drum loops, Midnight comes with 50 one-shot drum samples for crafting your own kits. All drum samples, as well as vocal plucks, were created by Look Mum No Drums, the work of Italian sound designer and beatmaker, Francesco Pellegrin, who primarily uses found sounds to create drum and percussion samples.
The pack includes MIDI tracks and dry samples to allow freedom to develop ideas with new processing and layering. All samples are provided in pristine 24 Bit WAV quality, all 100% royalty free, and all ready to be used to inspire new original tracks.
A wide range of sounds are covered in Midnight, with inspiration mostly coming from M83’s 2011 album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. A DSI OB-6 was used to create the band’s signature epic synth-string pads, a Moog Sub 37 was used for deep bass lines, modular-style sequences, and various arpeggiated patterns, and the Roland JX-3P was used for 80s style retro chords, wide basses, and lead melodies.
The samples are fully processed and ready to be layered and used in tracks with minimal adjustment needed in the mix. In addition to this, most of the dry tracks have been provided with no processing or effects, allowing for you to reshape the sounds to fit any mix.
The sounds in the Midnight pack are WAV samples that will work in any DAW or sampler.
The Midnight download requires at least 2GB disk space.
