ELASTIK – 2,54 GB
Authentic and Distinctive
There are few sounds that are as instantly recognizable as the Pedal Steel guitar. This library, which forms part of our Elastik Instrument Series, offers a versatile collection of beautiful musical phrases. The complexities of the instrument mean that it is very difficult to recreate as a virtual instrument. However, with this extensive collection of performance-based loops, it is incredibly easy to add realistic Pedal Steel performances to your own music productions.
Beautiful Performance Phrases Full Of Character
The library contains 2.8 GB of sample data and 568 loops and phrases. These are split into two groups with 284 unique loops presented both dry (without effects) and processed (mainly with reverb added). This gives the user either instant ‘ready to use’ versions or full control by adding their own processing choices.
The phrases are organized by tempo, with original recording tempos ranging from 70 to 120 bpm. They are also recorded in different keys. As with all the Elastik Instrument Series libraries, the playing and recording quality are of the highest standards. However, the recorded sound is consistent across all categories of loops. With Elastik’s powerful tempo-matching and pitch manipulation tools, it is therefore very simple to mix and match phrases between the different categories to build your unique performance.
Great For Country But Equally Great For Other Music Genres
Pedal Steel is the perfect choice for country music producers and makes an ideal complement to our Country Loops library and soundtrack composers will find the library perfect for creating convincing country style cues. Pedal Steel is not just about traditional country music though. The instrument regularly finds its way into blues (try it with our Blues Colors library), Bluegrass and American Folk. However, don’t let that stop you experimenting. For example, added to some chilled Pop or RnB, the mellow sound of Pedal Steel can strike just the right mood. So, whether for more conventional country, or more experimental cross-over styles, the sound of Pedal Steel raises the bar and will slide right in.
