Looking for lo-fi drum loops but don’t know where to start? Give Arcade by Output a try. Lo-fi (i.e. low-fidelity) music has boomed in recent years and quickly become a popular music genre. Lo-fi, as its name suggests, has imperfections or technical flaws that are usually edited out or re-recorded. But, in this genre, acoustic “flaws” are embraced.
Lo-fi ushered in an era of boundary-pushing bedroom producers, independent artists, and the super popular ChilledCow YouTube live stream for late-night procrastinators and early morning studiers alike.
Output has four new Lines and Kits for Arcade with hundreds of one-shots, loops, and live samples that can be adjusted and tweaked into lo-fi beats for your next track. Check the most recent additions out.
New Line: Drum Machinery
Hankering for a drum machine? Bam! How about all of them? Dig into a collection of electronic percussion, layered and prepped to perfection. Delight your senses with subby booms, fat snares, precise rhythms, grim thumps, and uncommon sounds that could only be created by a dash of electricity. Lo-fi drum loops in seconds.
New Kits for Nightmare: Sounds of Terror
This might not sound like the Kit to go to for lo-fi, but there are unexpected gems within. Use bouncy, dark, and pulsing synths, throbbing subs, or atmospheric FX that can be molded into lo-fi elements that stick around in the back of your brain.
New Kits for Chopped: Impressionist Pianos
New Kits for Chopped include keys that lift and fall, shift gently, and then resolve. Dreamy jazz piano is a hallmark for so many lo-fi tracks, and now those sounds are at your fingertips. Use these vibey pianos for anything that needs a dose of subdued beauty.
New Kits for Hooked: Hooked Refresh
These new sublime vocals will freshen up your tracks. Need some gentle harmonization to carry the melody along? Or what about some watery, reverb-laden “ah” and “yeah” ear candy to scatter throughout a tune? They’re all here, waiting to be used in Hooked.
New Kits for Passport: Global Guitars
These soft guitars are the sweetest backdrop for transporting your listener. Whether it’s the plucks from a Spanish vihuela or a soulful sitar loop perfect for when the sun goes down, there’s a wealth of sounds to choose from. Passport showcases the different personalities of the guitar in its various forms across the globe.
