MPC-Samples The 60's Funk Kit

MPC-Samples has announced the release of The 60s Funk Kit, a multisampled drum kit recorded to analogue tape that perfectly captures the unique sound and vibe of the great funk records from the 60′s and early 70′s.

Inspired by the kits used by legendary drummers such as Clyde Stubblefield, Jabo Starks and Zigaboo Modeliste and built around a 1960s Gretsch Round Badge kick drum and a Ludwig Black Beauty snare, it’s full of the warmth and character you’d expect to hear from classic vintage drum recordings.

Every instrument in the kit has been recorded by UK drummer Richard Preston (Tombongo) over three unique velocities and features four ‘takes’ per velocity. There’s a total of 180 unique sounds and 15 unique articulations including kick (damped), snare (damped), rim shot, snare drag, hi hat (closed, open and edge), ride (including bell), crash, hi and low toms, claps, tambourine and shaker.

Samples are provided in 24 and 16 bit WAV format as well as legacy MPC SND and are completely unprocessed for a traditional and natural sound, giving you complete freedom to add your own EQ and processing during mixdown.

We’ve also included ready-made MPC programs carefully tweaked and configured for all MPC models (including JJOS) that load up intuitively laid out finger-drumming kits utilising features such as velocity switching and ‘round robins’ to help you create very realistic sounding drum performances in your MPC sequencer.

The 60s Funk Kit features

  • 180 multisampled drums (each in three audio format) plus MPC ‘kit’ programs.
  • 24 bit WAV, 16 bit WAV, MPC SND formats.
  • Compatible with all MPCs, including all versions of JJOS. Sounds also compatible with any sampler or software that reads WAV files.

ELBYSoniQ releases 70s Jazz & Funk City Grooves

ELBYSoniQ 70s Jazz & Funk City Grooves

ELBYSoniQ has announced the release of 70s Jazz & Funk City Grooves, a 3.89 GB collection of stunning bass lines, tight drums, smooth and funky guitars, horns, strings and keys, all played with raw attitude.

The inspiration for this project comes from names such as the Mizell Brothers who produced some superb records for Donald Byrd, MFSB, Deodato and the jazz funk fusion artist who were the predecessors for the smooth jazz artist in the end of the 80s till nowadays. So no raw funk but smooth and produced sounding funk grooves from the mid-seventies.

Producer, composer and instrumentalist Eric Burger took the challenge to produce a song-based Construction Kit library, with usable and functional loops divided in different sections and keys for a lot of variation.

All the loops are raw cuts from live performances; there is some compression on the drums and some basic FX on the guitars and keys.

ELBYSoniQ delivers a song-based construction kit library which is intended for those who are looking for inspiration in genres like Hip Hop, Pop, Soul, Dub, Funk and RnB.

The sample library is available from Producer Loops, priced at £34.90 GBP.
