Momentum Logo
Momentum is a free plugin from Big Fish Audio that unlocks the potential of your loops and samples with the next generation of sound sculpting tools. Learn more.

Within this Sound Library you will find a collection of drum loops, all played with brushes. The 21 drumset construction kits span a large variety of genres and tempos. Within each folder, you will find plenty of loops, fills and variations that can be chained together to create a realistic drum track for your musical work. Each genre and tempo folder also contains a unique "Snare Only" track, which is just the snare drum being played with brushes. You can add your own drumset samples around the snare-only loop to create an endless quantity of unique sounding drum tracks.


Momentum is the next generation of KLI. This plugin is a powerful loop transformation platform that allows you to slice, stretch, change the key, rearrange, and compose from multiple samples and sources, as well as find that perfect one-shot inside your loop. You also have access to Big Fish Audio’s world-famous loop libraries right inside the plugin. And unlike other loop platforms, Momentum is completely free and doesn’t have any subscription fees.
