Loopmasters has released Blues Sessions Volume 2, a new sample library by Harvey Summers.
Blues Sessions 2 is an incredible sample collection capturing authentic Blues performances on Drums, Guitars, Blues Harp, Resonator Mandolin and Bass by some of the country’s best session musicians at Harvey’s Broadoak studio recorded through some incredible equipment including RCA ribbon mics from the 40’s, Sony Valve mics (C37A) from the 50’s, Neve and RCA pre amps, and mixed on a classic, 70’s Raindirk series III console, formerly owned by Olympic Studios.
All of the musicians featured on The Blues Sessions II are well-known professionals in their genres and of the highest calibre. They include drummer Liam Genockey, guitarist Roger Hubbard, Vocalists Doctor Savage, Mama Josie, Otis Albini, Blues-harpist Jem Turpin, John Pearson and Harvey Summers.
The collection is dripping with the atmosphere and mojo associated with blues recordings from the last 100 years, not over-clean, over-produced or sanitized, so you’ll find lots of these sounds are raw, edgy, and in some cases, quite noisy due to the authentic ‘period’ equipment used in their production. This is all intentional and will add bags of character to your productions. Also included are some loops of ‘room tone’ and ‘mic & valve amp’ noise, hum and buzz. These can be used to help blend sound together, or you may like to run them underneath your whole mix for added atmosphere!
