PRO TIP

 

For this tip, we’ll show you how to take these loops and customize them just for you…

 

STEP 1 一 Create some drums, or open an existing session that’s ready for some guitar chops.

 

You’ll want to already have some sort of foundation laid down (for your instrumental) for this technique.

 

STEP 2 一 Take your favorite loop from this free sample pack and throw it into a Sampler.

 

STEP 3 一 Make sure your sample doesn’t chop it up note-by-note, but rather every 3 or 4.

 

Sure, you can slice it based on transients on a note-by-note basis.

 

However, that’s only for situations where you’d like to change the composition completely.

 

Your best bet is to take something like a 4-bar loop and make it 8-16 equal slices.

 

This way, Timing won’t be an issue.

 

In fact, the chops may even guide you at times, so just go with the flow, so to speak.

 

STEP 4 一 Play around a little with your MIDI controller in order to find a good arrangement for your chops.

 

The notes won’t change, as you’re simply replaying the sample.

 

This guarantees they stay in key.

 

STEP 5 一 Once you’ve laid it down, drag the original sample in and play them side-by-side.

 

Simply determine what sounds best to you, and go with it.

 

Odds are, you’ll keep a mix of both in the track, for the most fascinating and alluring outcome.

 

NOTE: Next time you need a breakdown or switch-up for your guitar-based track, try chopping it up during any section.

 

Regardless of genre, it will incorporate that familiar hip-hop vibe.

PRO TIP

 

Sampling a drum section from a famous song requires the proper clearance, as you very well know.

 

However, that’s not the case when it comes to the fundamental sound design elements that make up that song.

 

So, by using recreated drums from that particular song it does a few things:

 

  1. Instantly captures your listener’s attention.
  2. Makes them feel a deep-rooted connection.
  3. Gives them a sense of familiarity.
  4. Ensures they will be entranced on an emotionally subconscious level.

 

That’s why it’s always smart to keep altered drums from familiar or popular songs.

 

This is a pretty hard task, especially if you don’t dabble in sound design.

 

But don’t worry, we got you covered!

 

Creating sound set templates with the overall elements of a particular track is the way to go.

 

It will provide you with a sonic template you can easily run with, that’s already proven to work.

 

This way you can simply make your own kits to easily load up later.

 

It’s a very beneficial way to conquer Beatblock as well.

 

STEP 1 一 Open up your favorite Sampler.

 

STEP 2 一 Load up the contents of one of the kits, mapped to their own key/note.

 

STEP 3 一 Manipulate the Sampler’s parameters however you’d like.

 

However, be sure to keep in mind that these recreations are spot-on.

 

Any major adjustments will change their overall DNA.

 

STEP 4 一 Save the kit in your Sampler as a preset.

 

You’ll be able to revisit and use it any time you’d like in the future.

 

STEP 5 一 Find, or design the rest of the elements of said track, using the same concept.

 

STEP 6 一  Save it all as a DAW session template, and you’re good to go.

 

This way, endlessly digging through the same hip hop samples for each session will be a thing of the past!

 

Can you say time-saver?

PRO TIP

 

By using the following method, you’ll be able to take any set of (seemingly) random loops in this free sample pack and create a masterpiece.

 

Regardless of key and tempo, within reason.

 

Most of the included loops in this free sample pack are in the Minor key.

 

This is why we’re taking a look at ‘relative notation’ for this pro tip.

 

It enables you to take any major/minor key, and their respective notes, and transpose them.

 

You can transpose them either up or down, to any other note or key.

 

This is so you can integrate any other major/minor scale that fits the vibe of your song.

 

Not every sample will sound great when paired with another.

 

However, they will all be in the correct key, so you’ll have endless combinations at your fingertips.

 

STEP 1 一 Choose a drum loop from this free sample pack to use as your foundation.

 

Remember, when choosing, you’re going to be using its encompassing scale.

 

This is where you’re going to transpose your loops.

 

STEP 2 一 Take a melody loop that you find intriguing, and change its BPM and Key to the determined pitch.

 

STEP 3 一 Lay that altered melody loop over the drum section.

 

STEP 4 一 Change the BPM and Key for your chosen bass loop.

 

Then, drag it into your Sampler and slice it, based on transients, and map it to your keyboard.

 

Now you’ll be able to use the bass loop in order to create your very own groove and bassline.

 

All while staying in the respective key.

 

Plus, you’ll be freed of the sample restraints, whilst using some awesome sound design techniques.

 

STEP 5 (optional) 一 Apply this to a guitar loop if desired.

 

This concept will skyrocket your production workflow.

 

And the best part is, you don’t need to know Music Theory at all.

 

Plus, you won’t have any of the loop constraints to worry about either.

PRO TIP

 

Everybody is always concerned with discovering the next hottest, sample-based plugin

 

However, nobody ever talks about the masterpieces generated from creating sampled instruments from trap one-shots.

 

Don’t worry, this instrument-building technique doesn’t take long at all.

 

Within a few minutes, you’ll be able to successfully dominate the one-shot game.

 

Plus create a completely playable instrument from absolutely any music element.

 

STEP 1 一 Choose your favorite trap one-shot sample from this free sample pack.

 

Then, load up your favorite Sampler and drag the sample in.

 

If it’s a melodic sample, make sure you input the correct note information into the Sampler.

 

This goes for whichever sample from this free sample pack you decide to incorporate.

 

Otherwise, the incorrect notes will be played once you hit your keyboard.

 

Which has disaster and frustration written all over it.

 

STEP 2 一 At this point you’ll be able to control the one-shot as if it were any regular instrument.

 

However, here is where it gets interesting…

 

STEP 3 一 Use your Sampler’s internal features, such as Legato, filtering, and modulation capabilities.

 

This way, if desired, you can transform this sampled instrument into a brand-new one.

 

Then, that brand-new one can spawn a series of new ones.

 

So, you’ll always have an endless selection of creative music options.

 

Be sure to save it as a Patch, for instant recall throughout your session.

 

#6: Unison Free Black Friday Pack

DOWNLOAD UNISON FREE BLACK FRIDAY PACK

 

It contains every element needed to complete an entire hip hop or trap track, all at no cost to you. 

 

PRO TIP

 

Not that they need any tweaking but, here at Unison, we always provide you with fascinating music production options and sounds for your music projects.

 

So, let’s jump in.

 

STEP 1 一 Choose one of the drum loops found in this free sample pack to use as your foundation.

 

STEP 2 一 Bring in one of the MIDI chord progressions, in order to have a melodic base.

 

STEP 3 一 Drag in the melody loops from this free sample pack.

 

Use the previous hip hop tip (above) to change the key so it matches the associated music chord progression.

 

This is where the fun happens, so pay attention.

 

Mix and match these hip hop samples in order to see what gives you the most inspiration.

 

The magic is: the chord progression is no longer bound to any one tempo or Key.

 

Meaning, you have ultimate creative flexibility.

 

STEP 4 一 Take some one-shots and strategically place them in key areas; every 8 bars or so should do.

 

Try not to make it too redundant, yet not too random either.

 

STEP 5 一 Take a vocal one-shot and load it into a Sampler.

 

STEP 6 一 Map it to the keyboard and properly input its Key.

 

This way you’ll be able to play it like an instrument as mentioned in the previous trap bass tip.

 

Then, simply arrange your sounds, and voila!

 

NOTE: You can start a bassline by taking the bottom notes of a chord progression and playing them in a rhythmic fashion.

 

Also, transposing the Root Note of a chord so you’re playing ‘fourths’ may work as well.

 

This simply means working with the 4th note in any given scale.

 

A ‘perfect fourth’ is 5 semitones up from the root note, so trying this music method is as simple as transposition.

 

Jumping between the root note & the fourth is a great technique when working with free samples.

 

It may be your best option when looking for movement and variation, so don’t overlook it.

 

This is a super popular technique amongst trap and hip hop producers.

 

#7: Unison Essential Bass Loops

DOWNLOAD UNISON ESSENTIAL BASS LOOPS

 

PRO TIP

 

For most producers, basslines are not exactly the easiest task to carry out…

 

Not only because they are the hardest to hear, but because there’s not always much room for variation.

 

In regards to the current melodic structure, that is.

 

Oftentimes the conscious part of your hip hop brain will want to focus on the chords and melodies, as opposed to the basslines.

 

However, the subconscious mind of a music producer is always tuned in, so it’s important to nail this section as well.

 

When you start a track with the inspiration of a trap bassline, the rest of the track can easily fall into place.

 

That’s why grabbing some free samples from this free sample pack can help inspire you tenfold and make your music/sounds stand out.

 

Not to mention, the reaction from your audience will be absolutely priceless.

 

STEP 1 一 Choose your favorite sample from this free sample pack, and analyze its note/rhythm structure.

 

STEP 2 一 Open up a blank MIDI clip, and simply input the notes that encompass the loop’s scale(s).

 

Each sample indicates its associated scale, so simply input those as well.

 

We’ll use this information later, so don’t skip over this part.

 

STEP 3 一 Lay down your drums.

 

This should be second nature to you, especially if you’re a hip hop or trap producer.

 

If not, just make sure that your kick and snare are aligned properly with the groove of the bass.

 

STEP 4 一 Open up the clip you previously set up, and try to determine which notes sound best where.

 

This particular step can be carried out in any order, but, if you’re working within the trap or hip hop genre, I recommend you begin with the melody.

 

Since you know the specific music notes in that scale, nothing you select from here on out will be considered ‘incorrect.’

 

It’s all about creating a melody that sounds superior and matches the vibe of your unique track.

 

STEP 5 一 Do the same thing for the chords.

 

Look up the chords that are found within your scale.

 

You’re going to visualize this as a sounds puzzle.

 

You just have to find where they fit best to create the full picture.

 

Now you have a sure-fire way to create a song from any bassline.

 

The best part is, you don’t have to know anything about Music Theory for this technique to work!

DOWNLOAD UNISON ESSENTIAL DRUM LOOPS

 

PRO TIP

 

When you see a hip hop sample pack that consists of drum loops, you probably don’t think much more of it.

 

However, you can transcend to much greater heights than just drum loops.

 

In fact, you can take the drum loops found within this free sample pack and transform them into your very own trap 1-shots.

 

From there, you can easily include them in your sample library for later use/reference.

 

Or even play the drums in any music pattern you’d like as well.

 

STEP 1 一  Load up a Sampler that splits, and can break down the sample by transients.

 

STEP 2 Drag your favorite drum loop into the Sampler.

 

STEP 3  Have the Sampler slice it up.

 

Make sure to adjust the settings (Sensitivity & Threshold) so each ‘hit’ can be played individually.

 

At this point, depending on the loop, you may almost be done…

 

However, if it sounds super old-school hip hop, you may need to do some manipulation if warranted.

 

STEP 4一 Bounce or export each sample individually.

 

This music step is crucial, so don’t skip over it.

 

STEP 5 Separate the drums, based on type, and assign them their very own track.

 

Be sure to incorporate ‘fades’ to any sample that cuts off too abruptly.

 

STEP 6  (optional) 一 Add some processing, in order to further make them personalized to you.

 

A sure-fire way to transform any drum sample into another entity is Mangler.

 

Mangler is the world’s first (and only) hybrid distortion plugin.

 

It’s easy to use and sounds great on absolutely everything.

 

Don’t underestimate the transformative properties you can obtain when the right music distortion plugin is pushed to its limits.

 

If you don’t want to or think it’s unnecessary, simply export the samples.

 

At this point, you’ve successfully turned our drum loop pack into a drum pack.

 

This way you can use them seamlessly and interchangeably whenever you want!

Building something unique with melody loops is super common.

 

However, it’s oftentimes overlooked that you’re able to transform a single melody loop before the processing stage.

 

Whether it be to match a certain vibe, or even create a lo-fi feel, this technique can be very beneficial.

 

For this particular trap tip, we’re using one of the most popular music examples: resampling.

 

This is the preferred technique for some of the hottest producers and sound designers in the game, like Malaa

 

STEP 1 一 Take your favorite melody loop and reverse it.

 

STEP 2 一 Transpose the pitch down 2-3 octaves.

 

Yes, it’s supposed to be much longer and sound a tad off at this point, but don’t worry, that will change.

 

STEP 3 一 Bring the tempo and the pitch back to their original states.

 

This process can also be completed by first changing the tempo, stretching it out, and then changing the pitch.

 

Sometimes you’ll procure the best results by focusing on heavily processed free sounds.

 

Just like the ones found within this free sample pack.

 

It may also be ideal to zone in on specific sections of the hip hop samples, like the reverb tail or delay, and re-sampling them.

 

STEP 4 一 You can reverse it again if you’d like, so the notes play in their original order.

 

However, it typically sounds better when you don’t.

 

At this point, you should hear a granular quality and texture.

 

This should give you a whole new vibe while staying within the same music note range.

 

STEP 5 一 Now you can add Pitch Envelopes, chop things up, or incorporate any other valuable manipulation tactic.

 

The possibilities are truly endless, not to mention completely mindblowing.

PRO TIP

 

STEP 1 一 Create 3 unique tracks, and open up a Sampler on each variation.

 

STEP 2 一 Group the tracks, so that when you trigger a note, they all get triggered.

 

STEP 3 一 Load up your favorite 3 samples from this free sample pack into each Sampler.

 

You’re aiming for the one-shot effect, so no need to adjust for pitch.

 

Unless you prefer to do so, of course.

 

At this point, you’ll have an incredible, super intriguing effect that is sure to help your track stand out.

 

The key for this technique is to only allow the selection of your free samples to be semi-random.

 

For instance, a VOX sample may clash with a lead shot.

 

Conversely, a VOX paired with an atmospheric sample, topped off with an 808 will leave your listeners in shock and awe.

 

Free Sample Packs: Final Thoughts

 

It’s a myth that using free sample packs will leave you with the same, generic-sounding beats as everyone else.

 

As a modern-day hip hop or trap producer, you never have to be constricted by the bounds of hip hop samples.

 

You have the ability to go leaps and bounds above simply flipping it.

 

But the key is to download super unique, professional quality samples in the first place.

Plus, they were all created by the world’s top producers, sound designers, and instrumentalists.

For any situation and all genres, these free sample packs did not disappoint.

 

Until next time…
