Having truly redefined what is possible within the hip hop genre, Symphonic Hip Hop by Bunker 8 Digital Labs was truly a watershed product for the industry. Having myriads of fans/producers/artists asking repeatedly about a sequel meant that the sequel had to better/surpass the original in new/inventive ways. Enter Symphonic Hip Hop 2. Oboe ostinanti passages, sus-trill trombones, lyrical woodwind passages, powerful cinematic slams, resonant symphonic horn passages, spectralized choirs, the engaging immediacy of this collection is only surpassed by its scope of use. These tracks can easily sit comfortably within a righteous urban smash, as well as providing the compositional focus of a major Hollywood blockbuster. Having 6.22GB of files, easily surpassing the size of the original is just the beginning of the story.
There are 701 pieces of audio content supplied in both apple loops and acid loops formats. 16 construction kits of astonishing clarity and depth are at your disposal. Many of construction kits contain 20+ tracks within them, allowing for detailed breakdowns of each construction kit. Bunker 8 Digital Labs has taken the time to create a custom set of convolution symphonic halls/spaces in which these instruments are placed, offering a level of realism and depth one would expect in a collection costing four times as much. Bunker 8 have also elicited the services of a several leading theoretical transcription conductors who have been intimately involved in both the composition and arrangement of this collection.
Each and every orchestral instrument has been broken out and edited in painstakingly sample accurate clarity, with the correct articulation, playing style and stage positioning fully preserved. The correct symphonic convolution has been applied to each instrument to preserve as much of the natural qualities of of those symphonic elements. These construction kits are simply bursting at the seams with the essential ingredients to propel your creativity out of the sameness of the everyday.
Each kit contains a full sample mix, plus all of the elements separated and set out for you to mix and match until the groove sits tight. Bunker 8 uses proprietary sample looping technology so that each cycle of either format seams perfectly throughout your jams. That means you can stretch these loops really far with limited or no digital artifacts.
All beats have been processed using Neve, Soundcraft and SSL consoles at the mixing stage, so you know these are ready to go. These are made by the same world famous producers who brought you “Hitzone 1, 2, 3”, “Hybridizer 1, 2, 3,” “101 Below, “102 Below” etc. Its like having Sigmund Droid/Ruptured Surround Sound right with you at the controls.
