African music is built around infectious grooves and rhythms designed specifically to dance to. With African Dance – part of our growing African Series of Elastik titles – we have captured a collection of those grooves and expertly blended them with elements of contemporary dance music production. Across 10 fully-featured construction kits, African Dance provides all you need for that perfect cross-over dance track that offers something wild, primal and distinctive.
The library contains 2.7GB of sample data and contains more than 470 individual loops and phrases spanning the 10 construction kits. With dance-friendly original tempos ranging from 124 to 130 BPM, each construction kit features three different musical sections for easy song construction. There is also plenty of options within each musical section to build variety into your arrangements. The majority of the loops are 16 bars and up to 36 seconds in length delivering performance variation. Elastik’s legendary pitch and tempo manipulation tools make it simple to find a musical match for your current project or to mix and match loops from across the different construction kits. The powerful ReTune feature provides further sound design possibilities for cutting-edge sound creation.
Sound sources include synths, synth bass, brass hits, mallets, arpeggio patterns, sound FX and vocal FX. Electronic drums include deep kicks, snare, claps, hihats and cymbals. As well as a pre-mixed drum loop, separate loops are provided for kick drum, snare, hihat, claps and various percussion. The latter includes claves, congas, cowbells, and shakers while each construction kit also has loops recorded from a full African percussion ensemble for that genuine tribal sound. In addition, single-shot drum samples are also included within each construction kit for further flexibility. You can therefore create your own perfect drum mix or build drops and build-ups with ease.
With an emphasis on dance-friendly rhythms throughout, spiced with exotic African grooves, African Dance has all you need to build your instrumental bed. Just add your own killer top-line or vocal parts and get ready to wow the dance floor.
The Elastik player is the perfect tool for modern music production. Creative features such as random replacement open a world of endless combinations and possibilities. The advanced ReTune algorithm allows key and scale changes at highest quality. Mix and match the samples of African Dance with other Ueberschall libraries in key, scale and tempo while maintaining highest audio quality.
