Ableton Live Pack - Funk Essentials Vol 4

by The Loop Loft

$ 49.00

 Live Pack

Crisp, dry snares. Fat, punchy kicks. Incredibly funky grooves. The Funk Essentials Vol 4 Live Pack brings back the vintage sound and feel of live funk drums from the late 60's and 70's. Six unique sessions serve up a wide range of authentic funk drum grooves, ranging from James Brown-inspired syncopation, laid-back Stax backbeats and Motown-infused pocket, all customized for Ableton Live and Push.

Each session was recorded utilizing different drum kits, cymbals and mics, resulting in six distinct "vibes" of both loops and samples. Whether you're triggering one of the hundreds of drum loops in Live, or programing your own beats with the six custom drum racks, you'll have the vintage and authentic funk drum sound that has been sought after for decades.

Live Pack Includes:

Audio Clips - .alc files made from the audio loops ready to be used in Ableton projects with correct warp points and tempo information.

MIDI Loop Clips - These are the MIDI loop files you provided pre-mapped to the drum kit made from the individual drum sample machine

Mono-Slice Clips - These are drum rack instruments made of individual slices of all drum loops in mono mode. This means each drum slice will cut off another drum slice and there are master macro controls for adjusting specific parameters.

Poly-Slice Clips - These are drum rack instruments made of individual slices of all drum loops in poly mode. This means multiple drum slices can be layered on top of one another to create new patterns and grooves.


Drum Samples - This folder contains a drum kit made of the individual drum samples from the sample pack. It also contains individual drum modules which can be used in other drum racks.

Mono-Slice Kits - These are the kits generated from the Mono-Slice Clips. They can be used for creating and remixing new loops.

Poly-Slice Kits - These are the kits generated from the Poly-Slice Clips. They can be used for creating and remixing new loops.
