Cr2 Records has released Deep Analogue House, a new sample pack that contains over 630MB of audio content and 25 minutes of informative video tutorials and a booklet outlining techniques, tips and tricks from the producer.
Inspired by the sound of artists such as Tale of Us, Guy Gerber and Âme, the emphasis in this pack is on dark, brooding melodies, complex modulating arps and deep analogue synth flavours. In order to achieve this Cr2 called upon some classic synthesisers and drum machines including - TB 303, Minimoog Voyager XL, Moog Sub Phatty, Moog Minitaur, Access Virus, Nord Lead 3, Juno 60, TR 808, TR 909, TR 707. The pack was also created using an old school aesthetic; tape hiss was left in, if the quantisation wasn't perfect but the groove was right then that's how it was left. Cr2 made a conscious effort not to over-engineer things to allow these analogue sounds to shine through.
Created by London based Deep House producer Stevie R, this pack includes rolling basslines, punchy key-labelled kicks, deep and melodic synth and music loops, vintage flavoured drum loops and inspiring FX sounds and fills. There are also 6 key-labelled song-starters comprising a mixed idea and all the component stems. Every melodic part (with the exception of arpeggiated parts) is available as a MIDI equivalent to make changing sounds or editing melodies a breeze.
Included in the pack:
- Over 630MB of audio and MIDI content.
- 71 deep bass one shots and loops.
- 42 punchy key labelled kick drums.
- 24 vintage drum loops (split into stems).
- 94 groovy percussion and drum hits.
- 41 music loops.
- 33 dark and moody fx sounds.
- 6 construction kits.
- 98 flexible MIDI files.
- Approx 25 minutes of video tutorials.
