The distinctive sound of the Mississippi Blues is both instantly recognizable and full of atmospheric character. This has been meticulously captured in Delta Blues, an Elastik-based library built around 10 extended construction kits. It delivers an authentic collection of acoustic Blues progressions, riffs, lead lines, slide, and rhythms. If your next Blues inspired project requires the retro vibe and feel of the deep south, Delta Blues has you covered.
Construction Kits For Easy Song Construction
With nearly 6GB of sample data, and over 900 loops and phrases in total, each of these kits provides 3 main musical sections plus dedicated intro and outro elements. Parts are up to one minute long. The construction kits were recorded at authentically slow tempos within the range of 46 to 64 BPM but are tagged here in double time for ease of use. Elastik’s powerful tempo and pitch manipulation tools allow you to easily fit the sample content into your specific project.
Authentic Old-school Mississippi Blues
Instrumentation includes various acoustic and resonator guitars, electric bass and full multi-track drum parts. Both guitars and bass include mic’ed and DI (line) versions, providing the option of both mix-ready realism or the ability to apply your own effects and ambience processing. Our usual high standard of the recording signal chain ensures pristine sound quality but, if you want to blend in some retro character, atmospheric noise loops are also included within each kit section and can be added to taste. Drum parts are provided as both pre-mixed loops for immediate use and as individual loops for bass drum, snare, snare trigger, hihat, toms, ride, room and overheads so, if required, you can fully customize your own drum mix.
Downtempo From The Delta
Delta Blues brings an authentic flavour of the old-school Mississippi Blues tradition. It’s the perfect choice to inspire songwriters, producers or media composers looking to add the genuine, down-tempo, atmosphere of the Blues pioneers to their latest musical project.
