Broken Chords

Broken ChordsString instruments can do all sorts of quirky things, like rolling broken chords. I’ve turned this technique into a loops pack.

These are 3 and 4 notes chords bowed across the strings, up and down, creating a distinctive rolling texture.  There are 94 chord patterns, recorded across 4 bars, at 100 and 120 bpm.  The loops cover major, minor and open 5th chords, and unusual patterns like augmented, diminished and sus chords.


The pack also includes sustained notes with rising and falling dynamics and a Kontakt instrument.

Here’s a look inside.

And a demo featuring the loops.
