Commercial Pop from Ueberschall focuses on band based pop productions. They say that live recorded guitar, bass, keyboard and drum loops lay the foundation for catchy pop songs and Ad Music. A spokesperson told us, "The comprehensive material is suitable for any application, whether for music production, corporate films, jingles or the scoring of commercials and TV scenes. Commercial Pop always delivers authentic results."
Here's the details directly from Ueberschall:
Commercial Pop contains eight extensive construction kits with a total of 876 loops and 3.4 GB of sound material. The loops usually have a length of eight bars, some loops are even up to sixteen bars long. The instruments include guitar licks, basses, electric pianos, organs and drum loops as well as pads, strings and synth sounds. All instruments were played and recorded by professionals with high end equipment.
The library allows a professional and fast workflow, perfect for productions with time pressure.
Each of the eight construction kits has a conventional structure consisting of three to eight parts such as intro and outro, verse, chorus and c-part. In each part next to mix and backing all instruments are available as individual tracks.
The drums in this production were meticulously recorded with 16 microphones and are also available as individual tracks: bassdrum inside/outside, snare top/bottom, overheads, room1, room2, toms, hihat. Additionally, a complete drum mix is available, which can be used immediately in any production.
Thanks to its clear structure the Elastik player is the ideal tool for fast and modern music production. Each loop in Commercial Pop contains information on tempo and key, so you can quickly find the right sample for your production. The „élastique pro"-algorithm by zplane offers time stretching and pitch shifting in high quality, which makes it possible to adjust each loop even more to your own projects.
The keyword-based browser allows you to search through all installed Elastik libraries and freely combine them with each other. Creative and intuitive features such as formant, resample, reverse and multi-mode filter allow you to edit every loop from Comercial Pop even further.
Responsible for the production of Commercial Pop is Marc Steinmeier, who has worked for companies like Universal Music, EMI Electrola and Sony / BMG. Many tracks and remixes from well known artists such as LL Cool J, Alicia Keys, George Clinton and Eminem owe him the finishing touch in terms of composition and sound design.
