PowerFX has announced the release of Gabi Masso Oriental String Sessions Vol. 1-3 as a downloadable sample CD.
These Middle Eastern string arrangements were performed by top Turkish session players and recorded in one of Istanbul's finest studios. The ensemble consists of 11 Violins, 3 Violas and a Cello recorded together in 24-bit stereo, and meticulously edited into full phrases, loops and one shots.
The collection features over 420 loops, phrases and riffs of various length, key and BPM with a distinct oriental flavor that is offered in both Apple Loops and Acid formats for enhanced use with compatible software.
“The players performed to hip hop and house backing tracks as well as Middle Eastern rhythms like baladi, saidy, and wehda so the feel of the samples works well with contemporary music while keeping their passion, color and drama”, states Bil Bryant of PowerFX. “We believe music producers will find these beautifully played and dazzling arranged ensemble strings very inspiring”.
Gabi Masso Oriental String Sessions Vol. 1-3 is available for immediate download for $119. Individual volumes are available at $49 each.
