'Basement Freaks Presents Archipelago' by Black Octopus Sound is an adventurous collection for any producer looking to add the excitement and flavor of the Mediterranean to their sound, and it comes loaded with 300+ Files in Total, including 212 WAV Loops and 94 One-Shots.
Capturing the essence of balmy island days and placing it at your fingertips with a stunning collection of hand-played instruments, including a Lute, Acoustic & Electric Guitar, Foley recordings, Melodica, and a variety of Mediterranean percussive instruments. Including sounds from a soulful Lute, found exclusively in Basement Freaks' homeland, Crete, Greece.
With 1GB of 212 Loops & 94 One-Shots, these sounds are perfect for adding rhythm to composition and even some heavier, organic bass (check out the second half of the demo track for some inspiration!) Each melodic and percussive loop has been composed to suit a variety of modern genres and recorded with advanced & analog gear while still maintaining the cultural essence that makes them so distinct and easy to dance to.
The acoustic instruments found in this pack were recorded with an AKG 314 & OCTAVA MK 012. The Fender Jazzmaster was recorded through an AC15 Vox amp and tracked with an E 906 Sennheizer & an SM 57. The Percussion was recorded with an R102 Active Ribbon and some AKG 314's on an X/Y configuration. The final output was combined with SPL 9844 preamps, 4 AXR hybrid microphone preamps with Rupert Neve Designs SILK emulation, and Warm Audio WA-76 limiters for Compression & Klark Teknik EQPs - KT for equalizing while tracking.
The samples range from 70 to 166 BPM, and you'll be sure to find a vast source of inspiration suitable for all levels of skill. Whether you want to match the loops to easily arrange an already professional-sounding piece of music, use them as song starters, or process them as you please to play a part in complex modern production. Each sample is Key &Tempo-labeled; you can easily drop them straight into a project, ready to arrange as you please, showing just how versatile these samples can be.
