Iconic moving bass lines, funky horns, slinky guitars, retro keys and more. Fired by nostalgia, moving bass lines, funky horns, slinky guitars, retro keys and the gestures of soul, together encapsulating the good things about an iconic era in music, welcome to ´Lost Tapes 2´ from Freshtone Samples the eagerly awaited follow-up to Lost Tapes 1! In Acid WAV, and Rex 2 format, Lost Tapes 2 has been specifically made to enable you to create a genuine period funk and soul sound picture, using the instruments and playing style of the day. Much of Lost Tapes 2 was recorded at Gizzard studios in London´s East End, using their rare Alice Stancoil early 1970´s AM series quadrophonic mixer, which once resided at the famous Manor Studios, and put to tape on a Studer A80 2″ 16 track and a Studer A80 ¼” machine.
Lost Tapes 2 features the Hammond B3, Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer, a rare early Hofner Violin Bass, a Burns Sonic Bass, vintage Gibson 335 and Fender Telecaster through an old 1968 Marshall 50 watt combination and WEM Dominator amps amongst other period instrumentation. Also, for the first time, the Freshtone brass section makes it debut adding sparkle and bite to each of the 40 compositions.
Just like before this is real live music played by the Freshtone band and finely honed by our production team using many years of recording experience for you to use, we hope it enhances your creativity and inspiration. Go back in time now and immerse yourself musically somewhere between 1967 and 1973, and create!
