Ueberschall releases Rare Grooves Vol. 3 (Elastik soundbank)


Ueberschall has announced the release of their newest loop library: Rare Grooves Vol. 3.

The third issue of the Rare Grooves Series is a sonic trip back to the classic sound of 1970s soul and funk. The more down-tempo grooves add a hint of blues to the feel. However, the timeless soul drumbeats, smooth bass lines and funk-inspired electric guitars – alongside the tape-infused analog signal chain used in the recording process - will guarantee the music you create is dialed in with an authentic vintage soul sound.

The library contains 645 loops spread across five construction kits and a total of 3.5 GB. The instrument section features electric guitars and basses accompanied by organs, strings and electric pianos. Drums are provided as two premixed loops (one with reverb, one without) as well as single tracks for bass drum (in and out), snare drum (top, bottom and trigger), hihat, cymbals, toms, overheads and room. Tempos across the five construction kits span the 60-94 BPM range, giving a laid-back feel. Each of the kits provides between 3 to 5 main sections as well as intros and outros. Each section also provides plenty of performance variation with some loops up to 16 bars (32 seconds) in length, making it easy to build full song-format arrangements.

If you want to add your own choice of processing, DI'ed options for guitars and electric bass are included. However, the mic'ed and amped recordings deliver the warm, saturated, sound that only a great tube amp can provide.

The free Elastik loop player provides high-quality pitch-shifting, time-stretching and scale-syncing but also extensive creative tools for sound design like resample, formant, reverse and a multimode filter. The tag-based browser manages all libraries together, enabling easy combinations between different libraries.
