Broke Beats is a new sample pack in ModeAudio's product range and it brings you a collection of drum loops, fills and hits in a style of hip hop, r&b and other urban genres.
Inside the package, there's 120 drum loops in total (93 drum loops and 27 drum fill loops), 80 single drum hits and 120 MIDI loops (drum patterns and fills in MIDI format)
So how does the content sound like?
Focusing on the loops first, I would describe the overall sound modern, punchy and groovy with some grit. The loops has been programmed using a set of a good quality, drum machine style, clean and snappy drum samples. Drum sequencing itself follows that groovy style common to hip hop music and the included 27 drum fills supports the main drum loops nicely.
The 80 single drum hit samples are the same drum sounds that has been used to build the main loops. They sound really nice and I liked especially the kicks: plenty of snap and punch on there.
Then there's the MIDI loops. These are the drum patterns of the main drum loops and fills as a MIDI note data. You can import these to your DAW and use the included drum samples (or your favourite ones) to play back the sequences and re-arrange them however you wish.
Verdict: Broke Beats is a very solid package of hip hop style drum loops and samples. The grooves are vintage hip hop and you'll also get an access to the core' of the loops (MIDI sequences). The samples used to create the loops are included as a single hits so everything can be modified easily to fit your needs.
