'Afro House Session 1' kicks off this brand new series from the Transmission label bringing you a massive collection of One-Shots, Sylenth Presets, Drum Loops and Construction Kits complete with melodic and percussive content. This pack boasts a unique Afro House sound, with pounding Soca and World flavoured beats, energetic synths and deep basslines spread across 3.6 GB of content. Effectively this is three products in one, giving you the drag-and-drop functionality of a Construction Kit, mixed with the versatility of a One-Shot sample library and the flexibility of a soft-synth preset pack.
Future Music Magazine Review:”Part one of a brand new series from the always fresh Transmission camp. Here we get the sound of some mighty Afro House, fused with scintillating Soca and sun-kissed global beats. These one-shots, 18 Sylenth presets, drum loops and construction kits shine brightly across the 3.6 GB of content. The scope of sounds is wide and wonderful and, thanks to the SSL hardware in the chain, the quality of the samples is top-notch. The side-chained FX in the pack really lift the raft of pumping melodies on offer and are sure to fit snuggly into your next 4/4 arrangement. A classy pack pack full of upfront electronic beats and Afrocentric rhythms. Just in time for summer, too." Roy Spencer, Future Music, July 2014.
You'll find lush side-chained FX, dazzling plucked synths and huge high-energy builds in this epic library. What's more, all files have been processed through legendary SSL hardware giving you a studio-grade level of quality. 18 presets for the renowned Sylenth synth are also included, allowing you to craft your own melodic phrases to compliment the pre-rendered material. With wet and dry samples, MIDI files, One-Shots, OMF and more this is an essential part of any House producer's arsenal.
MIDI Files Included: 'Afro House Session 1' includes MIDI files for the majority of musical phrases heard in each Kit, allowing you to seamlessly mix your favourite synths and samplers with the sounds contained in the pack.
Advantages of MIDI: While the supplied ACID/Apple Loops/REX content is extremely flexible and powerful, MIDI has the added benefit of allowing you to go to extremes of pitch and tempo beyond which the loops were originally recorded, with no time stretching or pitch shifting artifacts. Furthermore, you can make tweaks to the riffs so they fit perfectly into your existing mixes.
One-Shot Samples: Each Construction Kit features one-shot melodic and drum samples, allowing you to create new beats, fills and loops to compliment the existing material. Simply load them up into your sampler of choice and create an infinite number of new beats and phrases. This product also includes a large number of additional One-Shot samples not heard in the Construction Kits themselves.
Dry/Wet Loops: For users looking to simply drag and drop, the 'wet' files contain all of the effects processing heard in the audio demos. But for producers looking to create their own effects mix, 'dry' loops are also included. Don't like the wet loops? No problem, add your own effects.
Unlooped Riffs/Tails: This sample library also comes with unlooped/tail versions allowing you to end a phrase with the decay of the reverb/delay applied to the loop. This is particularly useful for beginner and intermediate producers.
Sylenth Presets: Lennar Digital's Sylenth is one of the most powerful Virtual Analog synth plugins on the market, and 'Afro House Session 1' provides you with 18 stunning presets for it. Use them to create new complimentary content, or as a starting point for your own patches.
About using the OMF files (Arrangements): OMF format (Open Media Format) allows you to import complete arrangements of audio loops into virtually any sequencer (see below for list). Once the OMF has been loaded, you will see all of the regions of the track on screen, with chunks of audio data on separate tracks, all named by instrument (as if you'd produced the track yourself). Dry loops were used when building the OMF files so feel free to add your own reverb and/or favourite FX to a phrase. PLEASE NOTE: The OMF files sum up all volumes of the individual tracks while all faders are set to 0 db. Therefore, please set your master fader to around -7 db (or less) to avoid clipping and take it from there.
