Arturia recently announced the availability of Hip Hop Essentials Expansion Pack. The Hip Hop Essentials expansion was developed by LA based producer Rick Stone ( Ice Cube, Snoop, Dr Dre, Lil Wayne, Whitney Houston, and Lil Kim). According to Arturia “these deliver everything urban artists and producers need to take their tracks to the next level of genre-defining creativity — from classic rap anthems through to the most recent dance styles and beyond into rough and edgy alternative hip hop territory.”
The Hip Hop Essentials Expansion Pack comes jam packed with “raw and effected kicks, snares, claps, hats, FX, percussion, and chords — all served up on a sizzling sequenced platter of 960 construction patterns.” There over 30 kits included. Hip Hop Essentials requires SPARK Creative Drum Machine Version 1.5 (or higher), and can be purchased and downloaded from the Arturia online store.
