Review: Inspiration Sounds Funked Up Complete (Sample Pack)

Inspiration Sounds Funked Up Complete

Inspiration Sounds has recently finished the Funked Up Series of downloadable sample packs with the release of Funked Up Complete.

The Funked Up Series aims to provide a timeless collection that producers could use in a wide variety of different production genres.

Funked Up Complete includes all five packs from the Funked Up Series, plus an additional 35MB of Funky House drumloops (only available in Funked Up Complete).

Funked Up Complete features

  1. Guitars, 564 guitar loops and riffs suitable for a wide variety of different production styles (clean and distorted versions of each loop).
  2. Horns, 120 of the cheekiest funky horn riffs ever recorded.
  3. Percussion, over 400 live acoustic Percussion Loops and Samples performed exclusively by one of the UK’s leading percussionists.
  4. Bass Guitars, 640 of the funkiest bass loops and riffs ever assembled (featuring a 5-string Bass and P63 Bass).
  5. Vocals, 92 vocals suitable for any style of dance music production.
  6. Funky House Drums, 52 funky drumloops, only available in Funked Up Complete.

All content was produced in a state-of-the-art recording studio using Pro Tools HD (TDM) mixed through a Control 24 mixing desk with Focusrite Class A Preamps.

When first auditioning the samples, you might think they lack a bit of that “phat” funky sound.

This is intentional, as leaving the samples dry (without effects) allows you to mix them exactly the way you want to. There’s nothing worse than samples that have been over-processed making it hard to fit them in a mix.

Check this lovely demo featuring Bass Guitars and Percussion to hear what these dry samples sound like.

Key and tempo information can be found in most filenames. The Percussion and Bass Guitars loops are BPM synced so they can be stretched to various tempos while maintaining a high quality. It’s a breeze putting a funky track together with Funked Up Complete.

You don’t necessarily need to stick to Funk music either, as these samples can easily be used in a variety of other styles.

So what do I think?

Funked Up Complete has funk, no doubt about it. I believe Inspiration Sounds has accomplished their goal of presenting a collection of usable loops and samples. You basically have everything you need to create funky tracks.

The versatile Bass Guitars and Percussion samples are my favorites. Obviously these samples are great for funk music, but they can easily be used in many other genres.

Funked Up Complete sells for £59.95 GBP, more than £20 GBP off the total price of the individual products, so if you’re looking for a complete package of funky loops and samples you should definitely check it out.
