The library is organized into 10 construction kits, with over 1300 loops and phrases making nearly 7GB of sample content. Each of the construction kits offers collections of extended drum, bass and comping instruments (backings) plus multiple solo instruments. Kit tempos range between 130 and 250 BPM. Performances feature extended 16 or 32 bar phrases for a genuine live feel. Elastik's powerful sample manipulation toolset allows you to easily create shorter or longer loops, change tempo, pitch, key or scale, as your musical project requires. The material has been recorded with top-class microphones and AD/DA converters and was not edited any further. 100% dynamics - no compression.

These include kick (inside and out mic), snare (top and bottom mic), hi-hat, cymbals toms, overheads and room, allowing for full control over the drum mix for your project. For the upright bass, a minimum of three different phrase/performance options are provided, with premixed, microphone and piezo recordings available in each case. The comping performances provide the core chord sequence on acoustic piano, electric piano and electric guitar. Each kit includes a minimum of three variations of each instrument allowing the user flexibility in building a song-length arrangement. A PDF is included with full chord lead sheets for all the construction kits. All of the kits also provide a combination of multiple solo instruments.
