SOOO coool ! massive pack , full of top quality analogue recorded fatness. you can tell these guys know how to play. the stuff in here can really give you the funk/ soul vibe to a tune, from authentic soundin breaks to full horn sections. but usefull for other genres too like drum and bass , hip hop and house ..awesome x
Funky is an understatement. The bass grooves, guitar, rhodes, horns... man, everything just jells. The easiest way for me evaluate to get to know the content for future reference is to just open a session and start playing around. Long after my evaluation was done I found myself still creating with this inspiration pack. The vintage sound quality, stellar groove oriented elements, and tasteful licks have pulled me in. Everything else I have to do today is on hold cause I jumped in the Baker Brothers time machine and wont be back for a while.
Funk Sesssions vol1
This pack contains a great selections of modern sounding funky drums loops and super clean percussions bits. This pack would also be great for Nu Soul producers as well. The Kontakt kits are wicked, really handy to have the drums at my finger tips to start creating my own beats. I loved the funky bass lines, super clean yet each bass sound is full and still retains sum of the grit i love so much in funk bass. I am sure some bits in this pack will find its way on to one of my remixes in the future.
An essential pack for anyone wanting to add a bit of "natural" to their music. without it been too much hard work.
Samples here easily dropped in my mixes very nicely and added much needed elements of funk and originality.
Some amazing live drum hits in this pack, perfect to get that jazzy, groovy, breaksy live feel to your productions. Also some very handy drum loops for those cheeky fills and breaks. There are some great live musical elements too with horns, flutes and everything you could need to give your music that organic feel and take it away from the synthesised sounds of the now.
Found all the loops and sounds very useful in this pack. Look out especially for the horns man...EXCELLENT horns. Oh and the breaks are crystal clear too :))
Baker brothers are buy on sight material. Every pack is another layer of quality analog funk. The drums are crisp and tight and if you think outside the box perfect for creating interesting human feel to your tracks. The horns are awesome and check out guitars and bass folders loading into 4 tempos and perfect for drum and bass.
I was looking forward to downloading this and wasn't disappointed. Fantastic selection of drum and instrument loops to use in all styles of production. Well recorded and thought out with the drums being my particular favourite. Definitely brings the funk to my studio!
