Umlaut Audio has released a new drum loop library, uBEAT, for Native Instrument's Kontakt software.
Combining a traditional MIDI file library with an eight-pad drum machine-style instrument, Umlaut developers say uBEAT offers “an intuitive workflow and three distinctive styles” to choose from – modern hip-hop, “pulsating” electro and “genre-bending” hybrid.
