Partners Deliver High-End Beats To Finger Drummers

by Mat Dirjish

Electronic musical instrument manufacturer Roland and online music education company Melodics are partnering on the creation of the Beat Maker Sample Pack x Melodics Series. The series features professionally sampled content from global artists and companion lessons to further the development of finger drumming skills on the Roland SP-404MKII creative sampler and effector.

The first release in the series, the Messy Samples by Lionclad, features Seoul-based producer Lionclad, who brings her finger drumming expertise to the sample selection. Users have access to a library of pre-recorded lo-fi backbeats, hip-hop grooves, and off-kilter rhythms, or create wholly original compositions. This sample pack is available as a project, ready to load into the SP-404MKII with samples and patterns arranged in eight banks of ready-to-play loops and one-shot samples.

Other features include 128 DAW-ready WAV files for sample-based music creation, which users can import into their music production software and hardware samplers. The files carry tempo and key information to help streamline workflow. In addition to the Messy Samples by Lionclad, there will be five future beat maker sample packs through this partnership. Each of which will include Melodics lessons that work exclusively with the SP-404MKII.

The Messy Samples by Lionclad are available now and come free with a Roland account through Roland Cloud Manager. For deeper data and gleanings, visit the SP-404MKII x Melodics page.
