The Spectrasonics RetroFunk - S.A.G.E. Xpander Live Vintage Drum Grooves are a fresh take on the killer vintage sound. Bring massive vibe to any modern track with these ultraflexible loops. Producer Eric Persing's mixes create a unique, dry sonic attitude in this sample library, making it ideal for layering with other groove elements. Vintage mics, warm analog tape compression, and antique drums all contribute to the funkiness. And with Stylus RMX, the grooves are at your command, effortlessly blending their timing and human feel to match your music. Turn a GoGo groove into deep house, a JB boogaloo into drum & bass, a fatback p-funk groove into alternative reggae, or an R&B stomp into a pop ballad! It's scary how quickly you can sound like a remix genius!
Producers Eric Persing and Bob Wilson (Liquid Grooves), went to great lengths to insure that every groove in this drum and percussion sound collection was performed with maximum inspiration and is truly "the real deal."
Normally, a drum loop library features the same drummer playing one kit, in one studio, all recorded in one day--resulting in the same basic sound throughout the collection. It may be good, but the lack of variety gets old quickly. In one of the biggest departures from other drum loop discs, Retro Funk was created from months of recording sessions with multiple world-class drummers--each recorded by different engineers in numerous legendary Hollywood studios like Capital Records, The Enterprise, and O'Henry's. The focus is on live drumming with serious feel, vintage drums, and a huge variety of original grooves and fills from 4 incredible drummers.
The featured players on Retro Funk include:
Gregg Bissonette (Santana, Joe Satriani, Don Henley)
Bob Wilson (Liquid Grooves, George Benson, The Crusaders)
John Ferraro (Larry Carlton, David Benoit, Albert Lee, Aaron Neville)
Eric Boseman (Liquid Grooves, James Newton-Howard)
Create your own complete drum track with song construction elements including variations, fills, fill bars, intros, breakdowns, ride and sidestick patterns, loops, add-on cymbals, claps, vinyl noise, and funky live percussion loops too!
