Evocative of the lauded ‘90s Memphis scene that has proven incredibly influential to contemporary hip-hop, Memphis Grit brings all the bombast, confidence, grit, and grind of Bluff City directly to your hard drive.
You get a ton of classic synthesized bass and lead loops, peppered with backup shouts ’n’ chants — all built upon the tried-and-true bedrock of 808-style bass drums, handclaps, and skittery, stuttering, proto-trap hi-hat patterns. Most of the content is in an appropriately imposing minor-key tonality, but you get one synth-and-horn style uplifting banger in the mix for when the mood strikes. Tempo-wise, Memphis Grit takes things slow and low, ranging from 62-85 BPM.
You get five key- and BPM-labeled multitrack construction kits of up to 13 tracks each. You also get five kits for Impact XT with all of the individual loops and samples broken out onto individual pads for creating your own beats from the ground up.
All of these elements can be mixed, matched, processed, and rearranged however you like; these are just the right tools for creating new tracks that are entirely your own. Try grabbing the synth lead from one kit and repitching it with the Studio One® Inspector to fit with loops and beats from a completely different kit. Or use the Chord Track to completely reinvent an entire construction kit into something completely new.
