Get ready to add some serious guitar goodness to your hip-hop production, 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 when combined with your favorite drum beat, adding vibe and crunch 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.
