The wild, wild seventies – experiments in all areas and of course in music! This decade has stretched the borders of technology and expanded the sounds and styles in a wide range. It is not without a cause, this decade has been sampled most by producers and DJs. Rare Grooves exactly offers this feeling but on a legal base. Rare Grooves brings the time and the feel of magnetic tape recordings into your DAW. Due to financial and technical limits of smaller studios of that era, sound experiments were a crucial part when finding one‘s personal sound. Among the favored stylistic devices were tape saturation up to the VU-meter‘s limits, lurching tape-delays, unusual reverbs, amplifier feedback an of course a good portion of overdrive – real garage sound. Rare Grooves focuses on the early era of Funk where groovy soul-beats and energy-charged rock-elements still had an impact on this genre. This makes this library the perfect choice for hip-hop, breakbeat, crossover- and dance-tracks; be it for music production, mix tapes, soundtracks or advertisements.
Rare Grooves consists of 10 construction kits with a total of 734 loops. The kits cover a tempo range from 78 to 122 BPM. Kits 1 to 9 include intro, parts A and B, break and outro. Construction kit 10 contains 9 tracks of different classic breaks designed to be used in all other kits.
