Some of the most iconic dance music of the last 20 years has come from the shores of France. The French filtered electro sound bases the tracks around a straight four to the floor groove with a heavy disco funk and soul influence, and brings a contemporary electronic sound into the mix with electronic production techniques and sounds.
Many of these popular releases have relied on sampling the main groove or elements from rare records to capture the live feel and vibes from the original 70s and 80s grooves’. This is a risky business and can lead to long legal battles if the sample is not cleared. With Daft Funk 2 you can avoid these hassles and get straight to the funk.
Following on from Part 1, we have kept loosely to the formula and have thrown down a whole new set of huge grooves – from beats to basslines to keys and funky guitar licks. The concept behind mixing the full grooves together for you is to then give you the chance to filter and mash them up as if you were sampling from a record. This is the key to capturing the vibey sound of sampling vinyl, as the way your filters react to the full loops is much more interesting and authentic if all the instruments including the drums are playing together. To give you full flexibility we have given many of the grooves split down in to different parts to allow you to work in more detail if needed.
In Detail expect to find 82 Live Bass Funk Loops, 45 Synth Bass Loops, 92 Full Drum Loops, 41 Kick Loops, 64 Top Loops, 68 Filter Loops, 34 Groove Loops, 26 Guitar Loops, 154 Pad and Riff Music Loops, 48 FX, 11 Bass Multis (110 total), 15 Synth Multis (146 total), 93 Music Stabs, 10 Clap Hits, 20 Kick Hits, 26 Hat Hits, 20 Snare Hits, 11 Perc Hits, 609 Rex2 Loops, 135 Soft Sampler Patches for NNXT, Halion, SFZ, Kontakt and EXS24 totaling 1.39GB in pristine 24 Bit Quality.
Fresh for part 2 we went a little “off piste” and dug in the Monster Sounds loft for our rare “Siel Orchestra ” Analogue synth. For those who don’t know, Siel was bought out by ARP and later it became the ARP Quartet. We ran a whole heap of super warm and Analogue parts off and also some awesome multi samples of this rare and difficult to handle beast, giving you the fun of the analogue without the expense and the tuning problems.
Monster Sounds are really proud to bring you a pack which we feel captures the essence of this exciting sound. We believe gives you the building blocks to create top quality tunes of your own.
