Ueberschall just announced the release of their newest Elastik loop library: Slow Beats. Here is what they have to say about it:
If you are searching for smooth, laid-back, inspiration for your next HipHop, LoFi, Downbeat, Lounge or Chill project, Slow Beats is packed with perfect musical starting points. Featuring 45 of the coolest, most chilled, construction kits you could hope to find, this Elastik loop library is an absolute treasure trove of chord progressions just waiting to be discovered. Add your choice of top-line, your own bit of mixing magic, and then say hello to the sound of mellow.
With 4.4 GB of sample data and over 800 individual loops, each of the 45 construction kits offers a unique musical idea ready to be arranged. Individual loops are 8 bars in length (up to 30 seconds) with original recoding tempos falling in that perfect downtempo 60 to 90 BPM range. Each of the 45 construction kits provides a pre-mixed drum loop as well as individual loops for kick, snare, hihat, cymbals and percussion. Single hits for kick, snare and hihat are also included.
The harmonic and melodic content comes from two different electric guitar loops (each with both amp and DI versions), an acoustic bass loop plus various combinations of electric and acoustic pianos, synths, pads, strings and flute.
With every construction kit containing a super-chilled, downtempo, vibe, Slow Beats is an idea factory waiting for you to go to work. For producers or media composers working in HipHop, LoFi, Downbeat, Lounge, Chill or related musical styles, Slow Beats is a perfect way to kick start your next musical project. And, as a bonus, a PDF containing full details of all the chord progressions is provided. This makes it super-easy to play along, improvise a lead line, or add accompanying instruments.
