Ueberschall says that Indie Pop delivers a collection of guitar-led pop tunes that work for the mainstream but emphasize an indie feel. Here's the details in their own words...
While guitars lead the way, this is definitely pop rather than rock. The moods move from uplifting through to melancholy and with just a touch of quirkiness. With nearly 3GB of sample data spread across 10 construction kits, there is plenty of material in each kit to build a full and varied arrangement. Each kit features five or more musical sections including intros and outros. Separate loops for individual drum elements are provided as well as pre-mixed drum loops so you can build you own drum mix as required. Guitar loops are provided both with effects and as a DI recording so you can apply your own amp and effects modeling to create that perfect guitar tone. Other instruments include electric bass, acoustic and electric pianos, strings, synths, pads and percussion. Indie Pop; just add vocals to create your next indie pop hit.
Comprehensive Construction Kits for building Complete Backing Tracks
Indie Pop contains 2.9 GB and 894 loops & samples. The sounds are organized in ten construction kits ranging from 78 to 122 BPM. Instruments include: electric guitars, distorted guitars, electric bass, strings, pads, synths, electric and acoustic piano, noises and FX. The drum single tracks consist of two bassdrum microphones, snare top and bottom, hihat, ride, tom, overheads and room. Additionally, several shaker and tambourin loops are included.
Indie Pop was produced with professional musicians and high-end equipment. High emphasis was put into the drum recordings. To achieve the desired sound, a 1978 Tama Superstar drumset with low tuned drum heads and old vintage cymbals was used. All recordings were done with Neumann microphones and preamps from RME (Micstasy) and Manley (Slam).
