Ueberschall has released Reggae Fundamentals 2, a new Elastik Player Soundbank for Windows and Mac OS X.
Reggae Fundamentals 2 is the continuation of Ueberschall's library that melts different handmade reggae styles. Whether classic or current roots reggae, synth-based dancehall or its forerunner rub-a-dub, fresh sounding modern reggae, Caribbean groove or effect-loaded dub - this library mirrors the broad versatility of the reggae genre.
The grooves and riddims of Reggae Fundamentals 2 have been performed live by experienced musicians with that special relaxed Caribbean feeling. The library is characterized by beats on the spot, rolling bass lines, minimalistic guitar backings and embedded synth lines - combined in a clean, authentic production by Ueberschall.
Reggae Fundamentals 2 offers a huge package of song ideas, consisting of 25 construction kits. Each kit offers up to six subfolders with a main theme and additional variations. It only takes a few actions to construct a first song layout. All instruments and drums of each part are available as optimized and premixed single tracks. This allows combining single elements with other construction kits of this and other libraries and to create your personal, preferred mix down.
The drumkits' components are also available as single tracks: Bass drum, snare, hi-hats, claps, cymbals as well as congas, bongos and other percussions.
The instruments used are electric and synthesized basses, electric guitars, organs, synthesizers, piano, electric piano, strings, brass, pad sounds as well as dub-specific effects.
Ueberschall's Elastik player allows for a fast, creative and targeted workflow. Music productions benefit from high quality time stretching and pitch shifting algorithms provided by zplane as well as from Elastik's clearly arranged library browser. Search across all loops of all installed libraries by attributes such as category, root note or original tempo. Using the Elastik player allows to transpose all instrument loops of a construction kit effortlessly, change their tempo and use them in any other kit. Likewise, all drum tracks can be swapped and combined across all construction kits. With functions such as formant, resample, reverse and a multimode filter, the Elastik player also offers creative functions that can be controlled from your sequencer and change the sound of any loop completely.
