It’s that time of year; schools out, vacations are set, and the pool is perfect. In other words…it’s time to get your party on! What better way to kick off a great summer than with a couple of Big Fish Audio scorchers in Electro Pop Hits and Risque´: Pop Kits. If you’re looking for a couple of uptempo Pop products to get down to and make a few hits with then this is what you are looking for.
Electro Pop Hits leans a little more to the Electro sound that is so popular these days. There are tons of great sounding synth leads, arpeggios, pads, as well as sfx, four on the floor drums, and a ton more to drive your tracks to a whole new level. The price is right as well at $29.95
Risque´: Pop Kits resides a few bpm slower than Electro Pop Hits but still brings the heat and some amazingly catchy pop construction kits. Risque has a bit more of an urban feel to many of the tracks and would be ideal for making tracks in the style of Rihanna, Ke$ha, and many others. Just like Electro Pop Hits, Risque´is also $29.95
Well it’s that time again for the pick of the month. Not only is it a new month but a new year. Everybody is ready to work off the holiday weight and begin the uphill climb of keeping our New Year’s resolutions. Here is a resolution for you that should be easy to keep: try something new. Don’t fall into the musical rut of always doing the same things. It’s a new year and a time to branch out and continue to expand our musical sound pallets. So this month, in that spirit, I present two products to help you think outside of the musical box.
Gypsy Cafe is a new project recently released by Big Fish Audio in cooperation with Dieguis Productions as part of the Xtended Series. This library is a little Gypsy, a little Parisian, a little Italian, and a lot amazing. It’s a perfect blend of old meets new as expert production quality as well as authentic instruments and players were used in the making of this project. Like all Extended Series products this library features construction kits that are packed full to the brim with intros, verses, choruses, endings, as well as multiple variations with each instrument included.
Next up for your consideration is the appropriately titled Mariachi. This library is also a Big Fish Audio library in cooperation with Dieguis Productions, and part of the Textured Series. As you might expect this library contains all the essential elements of Mariachi, Guitarron, Nylon Guitar, Vihuela, Violins, Trumpets, Gritos, and Choros. What you might not expect is how good these kits sound. Just check out the demo and you’ll see what I mean. So you are fairly warned, listening to the Mariachi demos will most certainly create an instant craving to drive down to your nearest mexican food restaurant for chips and guacamole with your favorite margarita. You’ve been warned!
