About this pack:
DrumDrops are proud and delighted to announce Pocket Funk Bass from bassist extraordinaire Eric OKafo. With tempos ranging from 78-123 bpm Eric takes inspiration from many of the basslines that have influenced him and countless others, from the classic P -bass Motown sound of James Jamerson to the filtered funk of Bootsy, the twang and slap of Marcus Miller right up to the pocket funk kings Vulepck.
The 100% royalty free pack consists of 481 Meg of data giving a total of 200 stunning Wav loops , these meticulously recorded in pristine 44.1k /24 bit at Lake Malvik Studios.
Eric’s selection of Fender, Lakland and Status basses were recorded through various DI boxes into a Neve 1073 Preamp, these were then re-amped when required through a vintage Amgeg B15 amp and various vintage synth/ effect processors from Moog, Roland, Musictronics, Eletrco Harmonix and many more.
This pack has been designed to be a perfect accompaniment to CJ Evans Pocket Funk Vol 1 as a standalone product (all drums in the demo tracks are from CJ Pack and not included in this Bass ONLY pack). We truly enjoyed producing this collection in the knowledge of it being far from just another run of the mill loop pack, we truly believe these Bass Loops will add that extra special edge to your productions.
