Funky, swinging, smooth, low-strung – soul isn’t so much a genre as a feeling!
SOUL SESSIONS combines 50 years of signature soul sounds into a hybrid instrument that can do everything from 60s-style dusky horns, to 70s-era bass plucks and buttery organ keys, to the versatile synths stylings of the 80s, and the smoother-than-smooth production aesthetic of 90s neo-soul. Soften up harder beats with a little R&B mood-making, give contemporary jazz and soul a hybrid sound-design edge, or bring loose, laid-back organic tones to left-field electronic productions.
