Ueberschall has announced Commercial Pop, a new Elastik Soundbank library
Commercial Pop from Ueberschall focuses on band based pop productions. Live recorded guitar, bass, keyboard and drum loops lay the foundation for catchy pop songs and Ad Music. The comprehensive material is suitable for any application, whether for music production, corporate films, jingles or the scoring of commercials and TV scenes. Commercial Pop always delivers authentic results.
Commercial Pop contains eight extensive construction kits with a total of 876 loops and 3.4 GB of sound material. The loops usually have a length of eight bars, some loops are even up to sixteen bars long.

The library allows a professional and fast workflow, perfect for productions with time pressure.
Each of the eight construction kits has a conventional structure consisting of three to eight parts such as intro and outro, verse, chorus and c-part. In each part next to mix and backing all instruments are available as individual tracks. The drums in this production were meticulously recorded with 16 microphones and are also available as individual tracks: bassdrum inside/outside, snare top/bottom, overheads, room1, room2, toms, hihat. Additionally, a complete drum mix is available, which can be used immediately in any production.

Ueberschall has announced it is currently working on the version 2.5 update for Elastik, the free sample & loop player for Windows and Mac.
New features include AAX support for OS X and Windows in 32 & 64 bit native mode, a new vintage pitch mode, multiple outs and the Random-Replacement-Filter.
Changes in Elastik v2.5
- AAX Native — The AAX format allows Elastik 2.5 to be used in the new Pro Tools 11. Elastik supports AAX in OS X and Windows in both 32 and 64 bit mode.
- Vintage Pitch Mode — The Vintage Pitch mode allows editing of loops as in the pioneering days of sampling. In this mode the pitch of the material changes parallel to the tempo. This spares the transients and keeps the groove, perfect for percussion and drum loops.
- Multiple Outs — It will be possible in version 2.5 to route each loop to its own output. This allows individual loops to be treated with external effects or to be mixed differently.
- Random-Replacement Filter — Elastik 2.5 improves the Random-Replacement feature. The soundbanks from which new random samples are loaded can be determined using a filter. This can be used to only pick samples from libraries of the same genre or series. A feature that is particulary useful for users of the Inspire Series.
- Bug Fixes — In addition to the features mentioned above there are also a number of minor bug fixes in version 2.5.
Elastik version 2.5 is expected to be available as a free download from Ueberschall in November, 2013.

Ueberschall has launched Acoustic Guitar, a new Elastik Soundbank library featuring a loop collection for songwriters and music producers.
This Elastik sound bank is part of Ueberschalls Instrument Series and dedicated to the acoustic guitar. The library contains 464 painstakingly produced acoustic guitar loops.
Each phrase has been performed three times using different acoustic guitars with instruments made by Martin, Yamaha and Ibanez. Each of the 464 loops has been recorded carefully using selected, high quality equipment. To add flexibility, all loops are available in unaltered versions without equalization and compression.
For immediate use, the sound bank not only contains dry versions of any loop but also mastered versions. In this mixdown, guitar 1 has been panned left, guitar 2 fully to the right and guitar 3 to the middle. The individual loops were not repeated identically. Therefore, they can be used to complement each other rhythmically and dynamically, resulting in an extreme wide but 100% mono-compatible sound.
Each loop was produced, to be possibly integrated into different song structures. Thereby the loops mainly focus on unobtrusive and accompanying phrases as opposed to virtuous licks. The individual phrases can easily be matched to your productions using Elastik Player, regardless of working on music productions, web applications, video- or game sound.
The soundbank costs 49 EUR.
