Ueberschall has released a new loop library in construction kit format for their Elastik player: 60s Acid Rock Vol. 1.
Here's what they say:
Combining elements of Blues and Rock n Roll, some legendary musicians, a wild and hedonistic lifestyle, and the occasional mind-enhancing chemistry experiment, the late 1960s generated some ground-breaking music. That musical style is fully captured in 60s Acid Rock, delivering all the musical impact and attitude but without the illegal substances.
Guitar-Lead Psychedelic Blues Rock
With a blend of high-octane drums, powerful bass riffs and psychedelic guitars playing turbo-charged blues licks, this Elastik library contains 5 extended construction kits. With 3GB of sample data, and over 450 loops and phrases in total, each of these kits provides 3 main musical sections plus dedicated intro and outro elements. Many sections feature extended chord progressions or riffs, as well as multiple lead guitar parts. This makes the construction kits flexible and full song arrangements can be built with ease. Tempos across the five kits span 72 to 128 BPM. The loops have a length of up to 16 bars.
For the electric guitar, each phrase is provided as two versions. An amped version provides a full-on rock tone that's ready to mix, while a line (DI) version allows you to add your own choice of guitar amp modelling and effects. For the bass, the DI and amp loops are also provided and can be easily blended to create the perfect bass tone for your project. Drum parts are provided as both pre-mixed loops for immediate use and as individual loops for kick, snare, hihat, toms, cymbals, overheads and room so you can fully customize your drum mix. Additional elements include some period-accurate synths and guitar FX sounds for added colour.
These constructions kits would be ideal for media composers needing to recreate the genuine musical character of the lead acid rock period. The library also provides producers with full instrumental beds to underpin their own song projects. For all the attitude and sound of late-60s rock, but without the need for the actual drugs, 60s Acid Rock is the perfect choice.
