Ueberschall says that, as a follow up to Brasil Nova Primeiro, Brasil Nova Segundo brings you 10 further construction kits of Bossa Nova and Samba inspired tunes. A spokesperson told us, "This time the focus is on higher tempos; if you are ready to dance, this will get the Samba party started."
Here's the details direct from Ueberschall...
This Elastik-based library provides over 2.5 GB of samples and each of the 10 construction kits features between three and eight song sections making it easy to build a complete musical arrangement. The emphasis is on genuine rhythms and real performances using instruments typical of the genre. From hand played percussion to full drum kits (with separate loops for each drum piece), through rhythmic pianos and tasteful nylon guitars, the mood is always warm and soulful. Many of the kits also feature vocals full of Brasilian character. For mid- and up-tempo Brasilian grooves that are right on the money, Brasil Nova Segundo é magnífico.
Dance-friendly Brasilian rhythms
A closer look into the 1049 Bossa Nova loops shows several live recorded instruments like upright bass, bass guitar, mellow nylon string guitars, piano and organ. For the authentic bossa flavour the library provides several batucada percussion sets plus shaker, bongo, guiro, triangle, tambourin and guica loops. Additionally each drum loop is divided into seperate tracks for bassdrum, snare top, snare bottom, hihat, ride, tom, overheads, room, snare trigger as well as a professionally completed mix for fast use.
Authentic performances capture the true Bossa flavour
All material provides a live-emphasized essence to aid in production realism, artistry and identity. Sessions were played by professional musicians and recorded with high-end equipment. The content is of great use in any music genre and can be easily integrated into any production where Brasil flavor is desired.
The complete library is available for the Ueberschall loop player Elastik. Due to its straight-forward structure, Elastik is the ideal tool for fast, modern music production. All loop names include information about the base key and tempo, making fast searches and immediate song-integration possible. „élastique pro", the corresponding algorithm by zplane, allows time stretching and changes in pitch with ease and at highest quality. The construction kits of all libraries are organized in a way that the individual elements can be changed quickly at any time.
All instrument loops of a Brasil Nova Primeiro kit can be transposed effortlessly to be used in other song kits. Also, all drums of this library can be changed and combined across the whole library
The attribute based browser enables fast and selected search across all installed Elastik libraries for loops and elements to be instantly integrated into the current song. By using intuitively accessible functions such as formant, resample, reverse and a multimode filter, Elastik offers lots of potential for creative use of any loop.
