Ueberschall releases Chillout Zone (Elastik soundbank)
21st December 2012
Ueberschall has released Chillout Zone, a new Elastik Player Soundbank for Windows and Mac OS X.
Chillout Zone combines atmospheric dense instruments with laid-back beats, deep basses, elements of Easy Listening and Jazz as well as cool Dub-FX into relaxed grooves.
Chillout Zone consists of ten pre-produced construction kits with a total of 609 loops. Each kit offers a complete mix of the particular groove for demonstrative purposes. In addition, they provide mixes of the complete backings and the drumsets which are particularly useful for song-sketches, digital DJ-sets and productions under time pressure.
Each construction kit also contains loops of all single instruments and drums. These loops have been recorded and prepared using professional equipment and offer total freedom while arranging and mixing.
Among the separate drums are kicks, snares, hi-hats, claps, cymbals and percussions. Instruments used for the backings are synthetic and electronic basses, organic electronic pianos, warm synth-pads, funky guitar licks and atmospheric sound FX.
Each construction kit contains two to six subfolders with different variations of a groove. This makes the creation of a conclusive track with intro, verse and breaks easy and effortless.
Chillout Zone is targeted towards music production of Chillout, Lounge and Easy Listening. However, the library is also well-suited to create soundtracks for games, television programs, movies and for event-location-sounds.
Ueberschall's Elastik player allows combining all loops of Chillout Zone with other Elastik libraries with ease. Tempo and pitch can be adapted using the included high quality time-stretch- and pitch-change algorithms provided by zplane. Use the browser to search for specific beats, basslines, synth-loops, guitar-riffs and other elements across all installed libraries. In addition, all loops are sorted by category, base pitch and original tempo. The loops and sounds of the library can effectively be edited and manipulated by a multimode filter and functions such as formant, resample, and reverse, including modulation by an internal step sequencer.
