Ueberschall has announced the release of Funky Acoustic Guitar - "Super-Cool Rhythmic Strumming".
Here's what they say:
If you think funk is just about strummed Fender Strats and slapped bass, then Funky Acoustic Guitar may make you think again. From the Elastik Instruments Series, this loop collection offers super-cool acoustic guitar performances that deliver funk from start to finish.
Great Performances Suitable For Funk, Pop and House
The library is built around nearly 1.3GB of samples and divided into 13 tempo and key-based sections. Original tempos range from 106 to 126 BPM but, with Elastik's high-quality tempo matching algorithms, you can find the perfect tempo match for your project. All the contained phases are recorded in guitar-friendly keys of E and A but Elastik 3's new ReTune feature set makes it easy to get these loops working with other musical content within your project regardless of the key.
Super-Cool Syncopated Rhythms
Within each of the 13 folders, multiple phrases (mostly 4 or 8 bars in length) are provided, making it simple to build a complete guitar performance for an entire song-style project. In addition, for each phrase, two alternative parts are provided intended to be panned left and right. You also get both dry and processed (with suitable effects) stereo versions of each phrase enabling you to work fast when required. As you would expect from Ueberschall, the audio and performance quality is of the highest standard.
Funk With An Organic Feel
In terms of styles, the library caters for conventional funk but the sound of the acoustic brings something truly organic to the genre. Equally, for those looking to add a funky flavour to pop, electro or house productions, Funky Acoustic Guitar will have you covered. Inspiring, groovy, syncopated and with attitude by the bucket load, Funky Acoustic Guitar might be just what you need to get the funk out.
The Elastik player allows you to fit all loops to your current song project in speed, scale and pitch. Use Retune to change the scale from minor to major or create your own scale. The intuitive browser manages all Elastik libraries for immediate access to all samples. This way, not only loops of Funky Acoustic Guitar but of all installed Elastik libraries can be combined freely. With functions such as resample, formant and reverse as well as an effective multi mode filter, samples can be easily modified and alienated.
