Cosmic Funk

Cosmic Funk is an exploration into the psychedelic, the astral and most importantly the cosmic. Paying homage to the funk and disco greats of the past yet brought right up to date, this genre defining sample pack is teeming with soul, style, and class. Referencing artists from Daft Punk to Dam Funk, Childish Gambino to Funkadelic, Thundercat and more, the quality of recording, mixing and musicianship is clear for all to see. We reached for the original tools used in crafting those classic records to create a collection of absolute authenticity. Think analogue phasers, tape machines, spring reverbs, hardware compressors and lashings of slap back to ensure each loop provides the most inspiration available. Inside this beauty you’ll find phased and Wah’d Rhodes licks, both live and analogue bass lines, era-defining digital pianos, tape driven drum machines, live breaks, spaced out guitars and enough style to keep even the most demanding of producers happy. As always we’ve included a huge batch of over 150 one shots from the sessions that also include some otherworldly FX for extra fun. Whether you’re looking to chop, remix or arrange, this incredibly unique collection will become an instant go-to for Hip-Hop, Soul, Disco or beyond. Folders: Size - 598.4mbLoops - 240Ones - 155

Drumtraxs #1

Prior to the development of the drum set, the standard way that drums were used was to have the different drums and cymbals played separately by different percussionists. A standard modern kit, used in techno music contains a snare drum, A hi-hat and one or more sound percussions like Toms, Cymbals & Clap. The central rhythmic component is most often in common time (4/4), where time is marked with a bass drum on each quarter-note pulse, a backbeat played by snare or clap on the second and fourth pulses of the bar, and an open hi-hat sounding every second eighth note. The tempo depends on the style of sound you create. Our new series “Drumtrax" offers an exclusive drum collection including an interesting percussions folder that will fill as best your new music. influenced by the sound of New Jersey, the producer gave to this sound an analog touch that brings back the feeling of the 80's when in the America, Punk rock and hardcore have played an important role in the music scene.Some of the hardware used to make the sounds of this pack, have been processed by following a concrete concept of what the modern sounds need to be innovative and unique.
