Heavyocity released Free Production Loops 2020, a freely downloadable collection of royalty-free drum loops in WAV, REX, and Native Instruments Kontakt formats.
Free Production Loops 2020 comes with 96 drum loops, including 48 straight loops and 48 triplet loops. The content is provided in WAV, REX, and NKI formats.
The included NKI patches require the full version of NI Kontakt. Read our article about the freeware Kontakt Player plugin by Native Instruments to learn more about its limitations compared to the full version.
Free Production Loops 2020 focuses on epic drum sequences for cinematic soundtracks, trailers, and AAA video game titles. This is no surprise, considering that Heaviocity’s popular Damage virtual instrument acted as the library’s sole sound source.
These heavy-hitting drums will fit any music project that lacks cinematic grandeur in the drums department. Whether you’re producing EDM music, trap, or cinema scores, the Free Production Loops 2020 collection will make your production sound more epic.
I like having this type of drum library available as a backup, just in case I’m working on a project that needs to be finished quickly. Rarely used as the main drum element in a project, I like to layer these cinematic drums on top of the main drum groove for added flavor.
You can use the included WAV and REX loops in almost any digital audio workstation or sampler plugin. The Kontakt version of Free Production Loops 2020 comes with a simple control panel that lets you adjust the transients, reverb, volume, stereo pan, and the active drum loop’s tuning.
