HOLLYWOOD — Users can get back to their dance roots with Zero-G Classic Disco, which features more than 700 samples of disco and funk sounds from the 70s and 80s. EASTWEST, exclusive U.S. distributor of Zero-G products, is taking down the velvet rope, giving users access to the period which paved the way for modern-day trance and R&B tracks.
Zero-G Classic Disco goes beyond song samples, allowing users to create new grooves using the collection‘s 35 construction kits in disco underground, funk’n’soul, proto house, Hi-NRG and funky disco styles from 107 to 125 bpm. To give a track its own special style, the collection offers additional piano, electric piano, guitar, bass, drum and percussion loops — all in pristine 24-bit audio.
The enormous construction kits were developed from the often-sampled sounds of The Salsoul Orchestra, SOS Band, Evelyn Champagne King, D-Train, Chaka Khan, Quincy Jones, George Duke and Rockers Revenge. Each construction kit is also divided into individual instrument loops — down to every drum loop part. In addition to instrument sounds, the collection offers funky, disco vocal “whispering shouts” frequently used in Chic, Odyssey and Instant Funk chartbusters. Song samples are up to 16 bars long.
“Zero-G‘s Classic Disco successfully encompasses the fun and funk of the disco era,” says Doug Rogers, president and CEO of EASTWEST. “The huge variety of samples and loops provides producers all the tools necessary to add that retro feel to their dance tracks.”
Zero-G Classic Disco is available in the following formats: Acidized Wav files, AIFF Apple Loops, Stylus Compatible, Rex2 Files, EXS24 Instruments, Kontakt2 Instruments and Reason NN-XT. For more information, visit the EASTWEST Web site, www.soundsonline.com.
