Explore Some Of The Neptunes' Trademark Sounds With Chad Hugo's New Sample Pack
The sample pack features sounds from N.E.R.D., Justin Timberlake, Kelis, and others.
Producer Chad Hugo has released a new sample pack that includes sounds used on a number of Neptunes-produced tracks. At 150 sounds in total, the collection is made up of snare sounds, synth loops, and much more. The pack is currently available on Splice.
“Hugo’s production know-how and penchant for a funky sound palette has been the secret ingredient of countless radio hits by the likes of Nelly, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Clipse, Snoop Dogg, Justin Timberlake, Gwen Stefani, Madonna, and many, many more (too many to list),” the website writes.
Accompanying the pack’s release is a video featuring Hugo messing with the sounds, and crafting a beat on the spot. Check out the sample pack here.
Hugo and his Neptunes collaborator Pharrell recently made their return in N.E.R.D. Last year, the group released their fifth studio album No_One Ever Really Dies. The 11-track release featured appearances from Andre 3000, Future, Wale, Rihanna, Ed Sheeran, M.I.A., and Kendrick Lamar.
