Art Vista releases GrooveMaster virtual bass instruments for Kontakt

Art Vista GrooveMaster Old School Bass

Art Vista has released three GrooveMaster virtual bass instruments for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Art Vista’s new electric bass libraries consist of three individual Kontakt 5 Player instruments featuring the recordings of Antonio “Tony” Newton, the Detroit bass man whose career spanned from the early days of the electric bass – with John Lee Hooker and Little Walter, and as staff bass player at Motown alongside James Jamerson, through his later fusion work with Tony Williams.

The GrooveMaster series includes three playable sampled electric bass plug-ins: Old School Bass, Double Neck Bass, and Bright Funky Bass. These libraries feature intelligent automatic idiomatic playback. A line played from a midi keyboard will instantly transcend into a credible live bass performance without the use of keys switches. The intelligent playback enables two-hand playing, but configurable key-switching is also available if so desired. These basses bring you the “real thing”, a slice of history and the distinctive sound of one of the bass players that defined the role of the electric bass in modern music.

The GrooveMaster instruments are available to purchase for MSRP $99 USD each. A bundle of all three libraries costs $199 USD.

Analogue Drums releases Monotown and Gorilla sample libraries + Tape Series Two Bundle

Analogue Drums has announced the release of Monotown and Gorilla, two new drum sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Analogue Drums Monotown

Inspired by the drums of Motown, Stax and sweet R’n’B from yesteryear comes Monotown. It will drive home the beat to old school funk, soul, rhythm and blues. It’ll also fit the bill for current indy and pop where organic production qualities are desired.

Monotown features

  • Multi-sampling: each key contains up to 8 velocity layers for expressive detail and dynamics. Hihats are extensively sampled for convincing realism with 9 articulations (tip, tight, closed, loose, looser, semi-open, open, pedaled, footsplash).
  • Mic layers: 5x individually controllable microphone perspectives: Coles 4038 front-of-kit; Coles 4038 over kit; RCA 44 over kit, RE20 underside, and Neumann U67 room.
  • Round-robin: natural performance is possible thanks to 6 round-robin hits for each dynamic layer on every instrument.
  • Layouts: Keyboard and eKit/V-Drum mapping layouts provided. The keyboard layout is General MIDI (GM) compatible.
  • Output routing: mono and multi-channel output versions provided.
  • Kontakt instrument interface: with volume and mic controls.
  • Instrument swap: instantly change the snare drum and tambourine sounds at the press of a button.
  • Sensitivity control: increase the sensitivity of the kit for more intricate and subtle performances or leave it set to full dynamic range for heavier tracks.
  • Presets: for quickly changing sounds.
  • Trigger maps: for sound replacement.
Analogue Drums Gorilla

Inspired by the likes of Phil Collins and other pioneers of the gated room sound, we present Gorilla – a classic Gretsch rock kit, with an authentic gated room feature that creates a vibe like no other. Complete with concert toms and Sabian cymbals, this kit will lay down a solid and distinctive foundation for any track.

Gorilla features

  • Multi-sampling: each key contains up to 8 velocity layers for expressive detail. Hihats are extensively sampled for convincing realism with 7 articulations (tip, tight, closed, loose, semi-open, open, pedaled).
  • Round-robin: each and every hit has 6 unique round-robin samples to avoid the mechanical machine-gun effect.
  • Mic layers: 4x separately controllable microphone perspectives: close mics, snare bottom, overheads and room mics.
  • Layouts: Keyboard and eKit/V-Drum mapping layouts provided. The keyboard layout is General MIDI (GM) compatible.
  • Output routing: stereo and multi-channel output versions provided.
  • Kontakt instrument interface: with volume, pan, and mic mix controls, instant snare-swapping button.
  • Gated room control: switch room gate to various degrees or leave ungated.
  • Sensitivity control: increase the sensitivity of the kit for more subtle performances or leave it set to full dynamic range for rock and heavier tracks.
  • Presets: for quickly changing sounds.
  • Trigger maps: for sound replacement.
Analogue Drums Tape Series Two Bundle

Both Kontakt libraries are available to purchase for $39 USD each.

Analogue Drums has also announced the Tape Series Two Bundle, a collection of all four kits from the Tape Series Two:

The Loop Loft Multitrack Drums Session #10 “Moves Like Motown”

The Loop Loft Multitrack Drums Moves Like Motown

The Loop Loft has released Moves Like Motown, a new sample library in the Multitrack Drums Session series.

Motown. Not only is it a record label responsible for producing a staggering amount of hit songs, but for also crafting its own signature sound. As one of the most recorded rhythm sections in the history of modern music, The Funk Brothers created a unique blend of funk, jazz and soul that provided the ultimate foundation for hits by Marvin Gaye, The Tempations, Martha and the Vandellas, The Supremes and a host of other classic Motown artists.

In this latest Multitrack Drum release, The Loop Loft pays homage to the sound and feel of the Motown grooves that have inspired us all for decades. From the classic “snare rolling into tom” fills, to the funky layers of percussion (thank you, Eddie “Bongo” Brown), to the infamous “soul beat”, Moves Like Motown channels the spirit and pocket that helped put a little label from Detroit on the map of music history.

Whether you’re a producer looking for a vintage, soul-infused vibe, or a modern songwriter in the vein of Beck, Adele, Jamie Lidell or Amy Winehouse, this collection of Multitrack Drums is guaranteed to bring some of the Motown sound to your next recording.

The Moves Like Motown sample pack is available to purchase for $15 USD.

Silicon Beats Classic Soul V2, drum loops sample pack

Silicon Beats Classic Soul V2

Silicon Beats has released Classic Soul V2, the third in a series of 3 loop packs that emulate the classic drum sounds and grooves of the Motown era.

V2 offers you slower, more relaxed grooves and includes a waltz beat in 3/4 time at 86 bpm. With huge room ambience and vintage Ludwig drum kits these soul drum loops offer a truly authentic soul vibe that cannot be found in any other drum loop library. We also included some tambourine loops to compliment some of these timeless rhythms. The rare vintage Ludwig drum kits were carefully tuned to capture the essence of the drum tones used in the 60′s and 70′s. We used our large live room to recreate that huge, live sound that was so distinctive in many classic soul songs.

Classic Soul V2 features

  • 8 collections of soul drum loops that were influenced by some very famous soul classics and includes a wealth of fills and variations.
  • 150 drum loops in 3 file formats (WAV, AIF and REX2).
  • Tempos range from 79 to 100 bpm.

Classic Soul V2 is available to purchase as a download for $59.95 USD.
