INSIDE THE PACK
What makes this collection stand apart from other packs, there are loops within recorded in the ‘70s originating from 40-year-old 2" tapes crafted by Bill King (Pianist, composer, and arranger who studied with Oscar Peterson, worked with Janis Joplin, Pointer Sisters, Martha Reeves, Chaka Khan).
These vintage sounds include drums, electric keyboard, clavinet, ‘70s analog synths, horns and percussion, and are from recording sessions conducted in Atlanta, Georgia, at Axis Sounds in the late ‘70s. We chose several old reels of 2" tape and baked at 130 degrees - digitized after a single pass and transferred to ProTools. From there, we cut up and picked the finest, most relevant sounds from the sessions.
We constructed the additional loops using vintage gear emulations, such as EMT Plate, Capital Records Chambers, Eventide Harmonizer, Phase Shifters, Echos, and more. We aim the bulk of the drum loops towards a funk-hip-hop groove that blends into different musical styles, including Funk, Hip-hop, Reggae, Dub, House, Trip-hop, and many more. Retro Funk is a practical and flexible loop pack.
