This library's special feel comes from a unique fusion of crisp Reggaeton rhythms and the best offers of Latin music: sleek melodies, delicate acoustics guitar licks and relaxed harmonies. The construction kits in Reggaeton are suited for dance tracks as well as for chill out areas.
This library contains 601 loops and samples with a total of 1.9 GB content. Each of the 10 construction kits includes 3 or 4 Reggaeton parts with a main theme in different variations. All instruments are available as single tracks to create your personal mix. Numerous authentic licks and solos played with acoustic guitars provide real Latin feeling. The additional instruments deliver a balanced mixture of traditional and modern sounds: Electric and synth-basses, brass, organ, synthesizers, pad sounds, FX, acoustic and electric pianos as well as strings. The impulsive beats are available as a ready-to-go mix plus as single tracks for all drums: Bass drums, hi-hats, snares, claps, bongos, congas, cymbals and percussions.
Using the included Elastik Player plug-in (Win & Mac; VST, AU & RTAS) allows you to change pitch and tempo of loops and phrases at lightning speed, extract passages and modify a loop's start and end points. In addition, there is a plethora of functions to manipulate the sound such as resample, formant, reverse and Elastik's powerful multimode filter.
Thanks to a clearly laid out browser, elements of all installed libraries can be quickly replaced and joined in endless new combinations. This way you can combine Reggaeton's construction kits freely with elements of Hip-Hop, Pop, House, Reggae, Dubstep and many more.
