Ueberschall has announced the release of its new Pedal Steel Elastik Soundbank, a collection of authentic and distinctive pedal steel guitar phrases played by Karsten Brudy.
There are few sounds that are as instantly recognizable as the Pedal Steel guitar. This library, which forms part of our Elastik Instrument Series, offers a versatile collection of beautiful musical phrases. The complexities of the instrument mean that it is very difficult to recreate as a virtual instrument. However, with this extensive collection of performance-based loops, it is incredibly easy to add realistic Pedal Steel performances to your own music productions.
The library contains 2.8 GB of sample data and 568 loops and phrases. These are split into two groups with 284 unique loops presented both dry (without effects) and processed (mainly with reverb added). This gives the user either instant ‘ready to use’ versions or full control by adding their own processing choices.
The phrases are organized by tempo, with original recording tempos ranging from 70 to 120 bpm. They are also recorded in different keys. As with all the Elastik Instrument Series libraries, the playing and recording quality are of the highest standards. However, the recorded sound is consistent across all categories of loops. With Elastik’s powerful tempo-matching and pitch manipulation tools, it is therefore very simple to mix and match phrases between the different categories to build your unique performance.
The Pedal Steel soundbank is available for 49 EUR.
