Ueberschall tells us that Chillout Zone combines atmospheric dense instruments with laid-back beats, deep basses, elements of Easy Listening and Jazz as well as cool Dub-FX into relaxed grooves. Here's a description of it in their own words...
This new Ueberschall-library continues the series of successful chillout-titles such as Chillout Breeze, Chillers Joint, Comfort Zone, Easy Listening and Lounge-O-Rama. Chillout Zone offers relaxed tracks that can perfectly be combined with other chillout-libraries.
Chillout Zone consists of ten pre-produced construction kits with a total of 609 loops. Each kit offers a complete mix of the particular groove for demonstrative purposes. In addition, we provide mixes of the complete backings and the drumsets which are particularly useful for song-sketches, digital DJ-sets and productions under time pressure.
It goes without saying that each construction kit also contains loops of all single instruments and drums. These loops have been recorded and prepared using professional equipment and offer total freedom while arranging and mixing. The options are widespread, ranging from adding single loops to an existing track up to the construction of complete new tracks using one or several construction kits.Among the separate drums are kicks, snares, hi-hats, claps, cymbals and percussions. Instruments used for the backings are synthetic and electronic basses, organic electronic pianos, warm synth-pads, funky guitar licks and atmospheric sound FX.
Each construction kit contains two to six subfolders with different variations of a groove. This makes the creation of a conclusive track with intro, verse and breaks easy and effortless.
Chillout Zone is targeted towards music production of Chillout, Lounge and Easy Listening. However, the library is also well-suited to create soundtracks for games, television programs, movies and for event-location-sounds.
Ueberschall's Elastik player allows combining all loops of Chillout Zone with other Elastik libraries with ease. Tempo and pitch can be perfectly adapted using the included high quality time-stretch- und pitch-change algorithms provided by zplane. Use the browser to search for specific beats, basslines, synth-loops, guitar-riffs and other elements across all installed libraries. In addition, all loops are sorted by category, base pitch and original tempo. This makes transposing and tempo adaption of instrumental phrases and drum loops between construction kits a no-brainer.
The loops and sounds of the library can effectively be edited and manipulated by a multimode filter and functions such as formant, resample, and reverse, including modulation by an internal step sequencer.
Responsible for Chillout Zone are Marc Steinmeier and Ron Paul. Both have already worked for companies such as Universal Music, EMI Electrola and Sony/BMG. They have also worked and remixed for well-known artists such as LL Cool J, Alicia Keys, George Clinton and Eminem. Many productions thank their final polishing in composition and sound design to them.
