The Blues Sessions is a collection of great, authentic loops, performances and multi's, performed by some of the worlds greatest blues performers. The musicians featured on this collection have worked with such blues legends as "Rory Gallagher", "Davey Graham", "Eric Bibb", "Bert Jansch", "Louisiana Red", "Big Moose Walker", "Woody Mann" and "Roy Rogers and his Delta Rhythm Kings". What's more, the collection has been recorded authentically, using the best vintage equipment and microphones, including RCA ribbon mics from the 40's, Sony Valve mics (C37A) from the 50's, Neve and RCA pre amps, and mixed on a classic, 70's Raindirk series III console, formerly owned by Olympic Studios in London, where it mixed hundreds of classic albums.
In addition to this material, a selection of genuine, vintage blues recordings - some more than 80 years old - have been carefully edited and included, complete with their original vinyl sounds.
All of the material on this collection has been crafted with feel and vibe being the absolute priority. No quantized or overly cleaned, sterile loops here, just heaps of vibe and mojo, the way blues should be.
This vast and comprehensive sample pack includes over 2.8Gb of loops and hits, including:
567 Drum Loops
504 Electric Guitar Loops
488 Harmonica Loops

Everything has been recorded to include room mics for added vibe, in many cases, such as with the guitars, the direct signal is panned all the way to one channel, while the room mic is panned opposite, so you can balance the wet/dry signal yourself - or just use them as is.
This highly versatile sample collection is ideal for anyone looking to inject a bluesy vibe into their tracks - with great sound and feel.
