While all the heavies were busy raving about Sony Creative Software’s best-selling What It Is!: 70’s Analog Funk collection, the producers at DNA Music Labs were busy tracking the follow-up. Now, here it is—Backpacker Beats, a hip-hop construction kit that’s ready to take you places. Start with the beats and basses—a perfect blend of real and machine sounds bearing the fat and spectral DNA stamp of approval. Once you find your groove, pile on the extras—guitars, horns, keys, percussion, strings, synths, and even some vocals that’ll get behind your message. Work from scratch in your favorite DAW, or launch ACID software and choose from among a dozen starter projects included on the disc. Sony Sound Series titles are a legendary match for creative hip-hop producers, and our sounds work royalty-free in every app that plays .wav files. With your laptop, headphones, and Backpacker Beats, you’ll be on the road to making great hip-hop tracks wherever you are.
