Precisionsound has released Analog Performer 2: Downtempo in ACID wav, Apple Loops, Stylus RMX, and REX formats. Featuring 140 multitrack performance loops, this sound library showcases the unique analog sounds of the Korg MS-20 and Moog Source synthesisers.
Analog Performer is the creation of synth expert and ambient musician Phil Thornton (credits include Sinéad O'Connor, Arthur Brown, Hossam Ramzy, Expandis).
Precisionsound founder Lars Westin, says: "High-quality downtempo loops can be hard to find, so Analog Performer 2: Downtempo is an invaluable collection of laidback and ambient grooves for electronic music production. Using Phil's personal collection of vintage gear, Analog Performer 2: Downtempo is a sonic exploration of the MS-20's dual filter, through intricate rhythms and live performances. Driven by a Korg SQ-10 analog sequencer and MS-50 modular expander, the sound of the MS-20 is complemented by powerful Moog tones, Korg Electribe drum machines, and a Korg Wavestation synthesiser."
As an added bonus, 40 fully-produced demonstration mixes can be used as royalty-free music beds.
