Modern Pop R&B and Hip-Hop Drum Loops

I spend to much time making beats manually (not using loops),
but noticed that I spent way too much time on that,
so I want to try using loops at least as starting point,
so I can focus on the melody, lyrics and chords more.

I have a few old loop libraries from AKAI disks and have Stylus RMX vst,
But these are very outdated sounding today.

I'm looking for some modern R&B and Hip-Hop drum loops (or beats loops).

I heard bad stories about splice’s copyrights, that if you use their loops you have to credit them and so on..

That's incorrect. Everything on Splice is royalty free and needs no credits to any of their samples.

https://support.splice.com/hc/en-us/...-Licensing-FAQ

Q: Do I need to give Splice credit when registering with a PRO (publishing rights organization) like ASCAP or BMI?
A: Splice is not a co-owner of your track, so no need to credit Splice when registering with a PRO.

Q: Do I need to give the creator of the sample credit?
A: No.

Making drum loops doesn't take forever though - why not stick to making your own and have unique drums?

Being unique is an outdated concept in Hip Hop, unfortunately.

@ BezowinZ agreed but I think that fits all genres - everyone would rather sound alike even between genres now Hip Hop stars want to be more pop or rnb while pop stars want to be more Hip Hop, etc... I'm all for diversity but not to the point of ending up with one common sounding lump of everything.

Oh, I hate it @ mrfantastic !

Most other genres were already like this to some degree. Hip Hop was the last hold out where crossing over & biting to do so was looked down upon. It's now cool to do both.

@ BezowinZ agree - didn't really expect it of Hip Hop to the extent that it has got

@ jpeg agreed but just because people do program the same it doesn't mean that anyone 'has' to. No different to live drummers using a kick snare kick kick kick snare pattern with 1/4 note hi hats in thousands of songs when they have the ability to do something else.

But the sound. Program yourself or not, if we're all working with the same samples, the music will be homogeneous, like it is today.

Yeah, I rarely do drums now. Splice makes the drums easy so I can work on the melodies and chords. Don’t let the price fool you. Splice packs got some heat!

I do my own drums, but use some samples to chop up. I use the drum samples to play my own drums on the force. I make drum kits out them.
