The entire pack was made using original foley sounds, processed and layered with sound design techniques to create, real, electronic-style drums for Lo-Fi production. And, if you want to learn about how to make similar sounds from scratch, we have an entire tutorial that goes over the same processes used to create the pack.

Using this pack has generated so much inspiration + new ideas, and has even been given testimonials from huge lofi producers in the scene too.

We’ve personally used the pack in a lot of our productions, with some being released on small SoundCloud labels, gaining 20k plays on SoundCloud and 10k plays on Spotify.

The beauty of the sounds is that they are very versatile to similar genres of Hip Hop and electronic music. And we’ve personally used them to make interesting productions that aren’t considered lofi hip hop.

Here are some examples of the Lofi use of this pack:

It’s not much, but without the packs, the ideas wouldn’t have been as easy to generate and it wouldn’t have been as easy to get into the full-creative flow state.

It’s one of the best value-for-money packs out there, coming in at only $12 for a tonne of cool stuff, and a 14-day money-back guarantee.

Also, in case you’re not sure you want to get the full, flagship sample pack, we released an awesome Purple Slush Lofi Freebie for you to download and check out, with 100+ sounds included (all royalty free).

purple slush lofi serum preset pack

If you don’t want to go the full way and purchase the entire lofi hip hop sample pack, there’s also an option to grab the Serum presets.

Inspired by chill, & lo-fi music producers like, 53 Thieves, Purrple Cat, and the popular study/sleep/chill to 24/7 lofi girl playlists – Purple Slush lofi Serum presets will help make your music production sessions easier and provide you with inspiration.

It includes 25 Serum presets & an awesome noise oscillator pack for sound design:

🎹 6 keys
☘️ 5 pads
🔥 4 plucks
🎤 4 leads
🎸 4 basses
🎛 4 synths
📁 WCS – Organic Serum Instruments (noise oscillator & wavetable pack)

The Purple Slush Lofi Serum preset pack pushes Serum to its sound design limits, creating beautiful, analog, warm & vintage presets, that sound good without any extra processing.

You can load up a preset and start writing melodies without extra mixing and mastering, and it will sound good. However, as you continue to add tracks, you will need to eventually create space for them using EQ etc.

Here is a melody we personally created using the pack without additional processing. It’s extremely warm, and sounds very analog and dissonant which is fantastic for weird and wonky lofi beats.

You will hear some automation used – this makes use of the macro automation controls that are built into each patch to alter the tonality, character, and vibe from section to section.

Another example of the presets can be found in the main chord line, melody and bass in this track we made using all elements of Purple Slush:

Alongside the presets, you get an additional bonus pack that includes organic sampled instruments that you can use for layering in your own sound design, which is especially useful in Serum when designing keyboards, guitars etc. which require a more organic sound.

This is a bonus when learning sound design because you additionally follow along with our how to make sample packs from scratch tutorial, which covers exactly how some of the patches in this pack were made.

Also Whipped Cream Sounds are one of the only companies to offer a 14-day money-back guarantee on all their products (even if they’re digital downloads).

That’s because we’re so certain that music producers will love our lofi sounds, that you won’t want to return them. If you don’t love the presets, or our lofi sounds, then there’s always the option to send them back no questions asked.

What Are The Best Free Lofi Sample Packs?

The top-rated free Lo-Fi sample packs are:

  1. Purple Slush Zero
  2. Purple Slush Serum Presets
  3. Cymatics LoFi Toolkit
  4. Sample Radar Free Lo-Fi Samples
  5. Bvker Lunar

How Do You Install A Lofi Pack?

To install a Lo-Fi sample pack, you simply download it on your computer and drag and drop it into your DAW’s sample browser window. If you’re on Ableton, this is a simple drag and drop. Other DAWs may have specific folders you have to install your sounds in.

In most cases, you will be able to drag and drop your folder to the browser while your DAW is open.

It’s recommended to do this because constantly opening your files and swapping tabs is a workflow nightmare. When you can drag samples directly from your DAW it makes music creation seamless.

Is Splice Good For Lofi Sounds?

Splice has a great selection of Lo-Fi sounds and presets. If you have a Splice subscription, we highly recommend checking out their collection of Lo-Fi sample packs.

We have personally downloaded many Serum presets for LoFi that are fantastic. It takes a bit of searching, but you will get good quality stuff.

Where Can I Find Good Free Samples?

There are many places online that offer free samples, here are the best sites:

  1. WhippedCreamSounds
  2. 99 Sounds
  3. Music Radar
  4. Cymatics
  5. SampleFocus
  7. Bvker
  8. SamplePhonics

SamplePhonics are really good if you want to get paid sample packs for free, because you can use their referral system to get a free $15 for each person that you sign up. I personally used this offer to get a load of sample packs back in University when I was a broke student and I still use those sample packs to this day.

Paid or Free Samples – Which Are Better?

You can get both free and paid sample packs that are fantastic. Free sample packs are always high quality, but you need to check the licensing information before using them. Some are not royalty-free, and you can’t use them for commercial releases. This is the same with paid packs, but it’s much less common to find.

Paid packs are generally better and will give you more access to quality sounds, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find extremely professional free packs.

I personally use packs that I got for free during my first years of production to this day.
