The library is divided into 10 massive sets with over 1300 loops and phrases. Each set offers a collection of advanced drum, bass and sampler instruments (backgrounds), as well as several solo instruments. The range of rates of installation is from 130 to 250 beats per minute. The performances use 16- or 32-bar extended phrases for an authentic live experience.
Elastik’s powerful sample handling toolkit makes it easy to create shorter or longer loops, and change the tempo, pitch, key or scale to suit your musical project. The material was recorded with top class microphones and an A / D converter and was no longer edited. 100% dynamics – no compression.
In addition to the pre-mixed drum loops, each set also includes some combination of individual loops. These include kick drum (internal and external mics), snare drum (upper and lower mics), hi-hat, and toms, which give you full control over the drum mix in your project. There are at least three different phrase / performance options for the double bass, in each case pre-mixed, microphone recordings are available.
The compositional performances are the main chord progression on an acoustic and electric piano and electric guitar. Each kit includes a minimum of three variations of each instrument, which allows the user to flexibly build arrangements along the length of the song. Included is a PDF file with full chord notes for all kits. All kits also have a combination of several solo instruments. Each set includes up to 44 different solo parts. The sound is clear, authentic and uncompressed throughout. This direct, dynamic sound gives you complete control over your mixing decisions.
