Montreal, Quebec—March 7, 2023—Applied Acoustics Systems releases the Hop Riffs sound pack for the Strum GS-2 and AAS Player plug-ins in collaboration with resident sound designer Niall McCallum.
Get ready to add some serious guitar goodness to your hip hop production with ease, no guitar playing skills required. Resident sound designer Niall McCallum returns with Hop Riffs—a Strum GS sound set tailored to discriminating hip hop beatmakers and producers in dire need of guitar flavor. Feel the groove take over your arrangements with this laid-back collection inspired by the modern wave of LoFi hip hop flooding the internet, as well as pioneers of the genre's classic 90s boom bap period. Hop Riffs features 12 hip hop sub-genres, 84 guitar presets, and 84 strumming patterns playable with your own chord progressions.
Watch Hop Riffs’ deceptively simple strumming patterns come to life once combined with your favorite groovy drum beat making it dance and spark all over your song. From gentle chord figures and glistening arpeggios, to punchy dark riffs and atmospheric background textures, kick back and ignite your next beat with Hop Riffs' generous sprinkling of rich effects and smooth, versatile tones.
The Hop Riffs sound pack is available now as an instant download delivery package. Hop Riffs works with both the Strum GS-2 plug-in (sold separately) and the included AAS Player plug-in.
