Ueberschall has announced the release of Easy Sixties - "Lounging With The Jet Set", a new Elastik soundbank for their free Elastik player plug-in.
Here's what they say:
If you need to capture the style and mood of the 60s, Easy Sixties offers an authentic flavor of the laid back, easy listening sound from that era. Using recording techniques that deliver the tape-based sonics of the time - including that wonderful wow and flutter - Easy Sixties brings a happy, smiling, slice of 1960s easy listening lounge music. The gentle tempos and combinations of instruments used will place your listeners very firmly in a time when air travel was still a novelty and the 'jet set' really were the height of glamour.
Classic Vibe Of 60s Lounge
This Elastik-based library is built around 11 comprehensive construction kits and contains nearly 1400 loops and samples totaling over 3 GB of sample data. Each kit is comprised of 5 or 6 music sections making it easy to build a full musical arrangement. Instruments include guitars, synth and acoustic basses, synths, flute, vibraphone, glockenspiel, organs, strings and acoustic and electric pianos. In addition, both electronic and acoustic drum sounds are present and include snares, kicks, sub-kicks, cymbals and various electronic percussion. Individual drum samples are also provided. Original tempos range from 60 to 96 BPM but Elastik's high-quality tempo-matching tools provide for plenty of flexibility if faster or slower tempos are required. Additionally, Retune allows scale and key syncing of any loop in the library.
Elastik is the ideal tool for loop-based music production. The ReTune algorithm gives you complete control over the scale and key of any tonal loop in Easy Sixties, polyphonic or monophonic. This way, you can easily combine loops from different libraries. Elastik offers complete control over high quality time and pitch shifting. Further parameters can be adjusted on a slice-basis, including pitch-shifting, volume and pan, reverse, formant, filter and resample. The innovative Inspire function can create new song ideas on-the-fly.
