Southern Fried series. Building on the foundation of the inaugural offering, the production crew delivers a robust sound kit that speaks to beatsmiths banging on the pads of their trusty MPC, producers looking for live elements to build tracks around, or composers searching for that something “extra” to set off their arrangement. Worlds of classic hardware like the SP1200, various Akai series samplers, ASR-10s, etc., the wide array of software programs, and the rigors of arranging live music for television shows. Southern Fried 2 offers various instruments played in different keys and/or chords, allowing the producer the opportunity to have more control over their new composition with a wider array of options at their disposal.
As one can see by the carefully constructed artwork, the Southern Fried series represents more than simply sampling sounds from the classic Roland 808. It’s an aesthetic that harkens back to classic Southern music: Soul, Rock, and Hip Hop. It’s hard-hitting kicks and snares, guitars oozing feeling, and keys that strike that special chord within all of us.
