Prime Loops Samples

Prime Loops – Another great source for rap beat samples

Prime Loops LogoRecently, I have been looking for more websites with quality samples and loops to download. I have already made several posts about Loopmasters in the past, but now I have found a few other sites that are worth mentioning. So today I will talk about Prime Loops. PrimeLoops.com is another UK based website specializing in electronic music. They provide royalty-free music loops and samples for musicians, DJs, producers, beat-makers and music lovers in general, in a variety of music styles. The sample collections are ready for download in various file formats.

PrimeLoops pros and cons

The Prime loops website is very well designed, easy to navigate. They offer over 200 sound libraries  of various types (Bass samples, Drum Loops, Vocal Samples, Guitar Loops, Synth samples, Midi files, Artist Series, etc…) in various music genres (Drum’n’Bass, Dubstep, Electro, Glitch, Hip Hop, House, Pop, Rr&B, Trance, Classical, Ambient, etc…). They have also tutorials and tips, and they run competitions.

All products are exclusively available through downloads. So you cannot buy a physical copy (DVD) of a sample pack, which may or may not be a problem for you. Unfortunately, they don’t offer free loops and samples like Loopmasters do. Each product has a good demo song, but a few free samples to download would have been nice. Their price range is a little more affordable though compared to Loopmasters, I find.

According to their user testimonials, big names in the music industry use their sample libraries. If you’re interested in hip hop instrumental production, you should also check out: HipHopProduction.com

 

Prime Loops Download

So, like I said, unfortunately no free download of samples. But if electronic loop-based music is your thing, then Prime Loops is definitely a great source of top quality samples at affordable prices. So check it out.
