Vintage Rhythm Section is a virtual instrument for Kontakt 5 designed to emulate the classic rhythm section sounds of R&B, Soul, Funk, Jazz, and Rock records from the 1960’s and 1970’s.
Vintage Rhythm Section (VRS) is easy to use, with a simple interface that lets you work quickly and intuitively. If you’re producing retro or indie-style music on a budget, or if you’re a TV or film composer working on a tight deadline, VRS can be used to create live-sounding drums, bass, guitar, keyboard, and percussion tracks.
CAPTURING THAT VINTAGE RHYTHM SECTION SOUND
Like its sister-products, Vintage Horns and Vintage Strings, Vintage Rhythm Section was not designed to be a shiny, perfect-sounding virtual instrument. Instead, we tried to capture the way rhythm sections sounded back in the 60’s and 70’s, including some of the minor imperfections that added character to those instruments and made them sound so good.
For VRS, we sampled a large collection of vintage instruments – some amazingly still in mint condition, and others looking every bit as “vintage” as you’d expect a piece of 40-50 year-old gear to look.
Wherever possible, we used the same types of amps and mics that were used in the 60’s and 70’s. Some of this old gear was pretty funky-sounding, which probably would have disqualified it from being used on most other types of sample libraries. But for VRS, it was just what we were looking for.
