Retro Stabs & Analogue Chords’ is an all new Royalty-Free collection of stabs and chords created using a wide range of classic synths, modern hardware, high end software and experimental processing. Inspired by the sounds and sampling techniques of early Hip-Hop and dance music pioneers, this sound set can instantly add a touch of nostalgia and analog style warmth to your production. The sonic range is huge and every sound has been created and processed to stay true to the sampling techniques of the time whilst making sure every cut is punchy and up to date for modern production. Also with custom samplers for Kontakt 4+, NN-XT, EXS24 and SFZ allow you to easily get started inside your favourite DAW.
Processing has been done using a selection of high-end and super low-end hardware and software. The high-end includes Digitech Valve Compressor, Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor, Pultec Pro, Fairchild 670, Ampex Tape, Teletronix, LA-2A, Roland Dimension D and an Opto Tube Compressor.
The low-end takes in MPC60 and SP1200 style down-sampling, bit crushing, cassette and tape machines, re-sampling through cheap keyboards, toy synths, guitar pedals, distortion and analogue saturation. The end result is a consistent set of sounds that are high in quality but hugely varied in tone, timbre and character.
‘Retro Stabs & Analogue Chords’ is the real sound of classic Electronic music and an essential Kit for producers looking to add some analogue style warmth and shine to their production. An inspiring set of one-shots that encourage creativity in a simple way. This pack is perfect for House producers but just as at home in Classic Hip-Hop, Future Beats, Drum & Bass, Grime, Experimental Electronica, Techno and Garage.
