Ueberschall releases Latin Brasil Beats (Elastik soundbank)

Ueberschall

Ueberschall has released the third installment of their Drum Loop Series: Latin Brasil Beats.

Latin Brasil Beats is part of the Multitrack Drum Loop Series and provides the authentic vibrancy and groove of Latin rhythms. Styles span Samba, Batucada, Calypso, Latin, Maracatu, Bossa Nova, Baile Funk and more. Layered with a suitable 4-on-the-floor kick, they would also easily crossover into pop and dance styles. The drum recordings are pristine and the performances full of character, detail and variation.

The library is built from 10 GB of sample data and contains more than 3800 individual loops divided into sixteen performance-based folders. Each folder features multiple parts and plenty of performance variations. You can, therefore, build a complete drum performance with ease. The performances were recorded at tempos ranging between 60 and 140BPM. With Elastik's high-quality tempo-manipulation algorithms, you have plenty of additional flexibility to find the perfect tempo for your project.

The loops are provided into six separate Elastik soundbanks. The first contains loops of full drum mixes, while the other five contain all the multitrack loops from the same performances. The drum mix soundbank features two different mixes – wet and dry - of each drum performance. The wet mix provides a fully processed stereo mix with effects and ambience and delivers instant results. The dry mix also provides a rapid workflow but allows the user to add their own choice of reverb, etc.

The multitrack soundbanks contain all the multitrack loops for the same performances. Within each folder, an unprocessed drum mix is provided alongside the separate loops for each mic used during the recording process. These include both inside and outside kick drum mics, snare top and bottom, a hihat mic, multiple tom and cymbal mics, while overhead and room mics can be used to add natural ambience. The mutitrack versions therefore give you the ultimate control over your drum mix.

Ueberschall says:

Latin Brasil Beats delivers a substantial collection of irresistible Latin rhythms. It makes a perfect companion for our Batucada and Brasil Nova libraries. With the ease of audio loops, and the control of full multitrack drum recordings, Latin Brasil will get everyone moving to that infectious Latin groove.

Multitrack Drum Loop Series

Designed to inspire, the Multitrack Drum Loop Series combines the workflow advantages of loops with the mix control offered by full, multitracked, drum recordings. Each genre-based title in the series delivers a collection of multitracked drum performances with all recordings made in Ueberschall's own dedicated recording studios. Drum and cymbal combinations were selected to match each music style, while top-end preamps and microphones – including matched pairs where required – were used alongside analog compressors and limiters throughout the recording process. Special attention was paid to drum tuning, while some recordings feature distinctive and characterful high or low tuned shells/drum heads. Rare high-quality cymbals and an arsenal of different sticks and mallets were also used.

All the drum performances within this series were played by the drummer Matthias 'Maze' Meusel. Maze's credit list spans recording and live duties with chart-topping artists, TV and theatre work, and tours in over 30 countries world-wide. From smooth to uptempo jazz, drum&bass, Latin, house, pop, ballads, lounge, downbeat, easy listening, soul, neo soul, R&B, funk, hiphop or big-band, Maze is said to be a master of every genre. Whether it's vintage grooves or complex modern beats, he likes to experiment with timings, accents, tunings and unusual sticks and mallets.

The titles within the Multitrack Drum Loop Series offer loops that cannot be found anywhere else. Thanks to the advanced time-stretch algorithms built directly into Elastik, users can mix and match across all the loops. The drums can also be detuned using Elastik's powerful pitch-shifting functions with ReTune allowing you to tune your drum performances to your song key and scale if required. With the sophisticated sound design options provide by Elastik, these acoustic drums can also be transformed to suit electronic styles, but always retaining the detailed expression provided by a world-class drummer.
