Description: Club classic.
In the 80s, R&B had a peculiar sound. It is still based on the funk, soul and disco styles of the 1970s, but as synthesizers and drum machines played an increasingly important role, the genre took on a new musical character. Our library of 80s R&B samples for Elastik perfectly captures this sound before hip-hop was added to the R&B melting pot.
Featuring super-smooth grooves, punchy synthetic bass lines, and memorable lead synth hooks, the library delivers authentic 80s R&B and pop in an easy-to-use format.
80s R&B consists of 10 complete kits. It contains over 800 loops and samples with over 3 GB of data. Each set includes three music sections for easy arrangement and song construction. In addition, in each music section, separate instrumental loops include synth basses, pads, synth solos, electric pianos, clavinets, strings, vocoders, and a range of sound effects and other musical chocolates. 80s analog drum sounds include separate snare, kick, hi-hat, cymbal, tom, and clap loops. A number of percussion loops are also provided. A pre-mixed drum loop is also provided for each piece of music, as well as individual drum samples. You have everything you need to create the perfect mix for your project. The original recording tempos range from 98 bpm to 124 bpm, but Elastik’s high quality tempo matching tools provide a lot of control when higher or slower tempos are required.
The Performances and Instruments have been carefully thought out to firmly anchor this collection of samples in the 1980s. Whether you want to create a retro song project for your own vocals, or need to convey the sound and style of an era for a music-in-picture transition, 80s R&B has all the sounds and flowing melodies you need.
Elastik is the perfect tool for creating loop-based music. The ReTune algorithm gives you complete control over the key of any tonal loop in 80s R&B, polyphonic or monophonic. Elastik offers complete control over qualitative timing and pitch changes. Additional parameters can be adjusted on a slice basis, including pitch offset, volume and pan, reverse, formant, filter and resampling. The innovative Inspire feature lets you create new song ideas on the fly.
