The wait is over! The hottest smooth jazz loop library of all time now continues with Suite Grooves 2. Jeff Carruthers has produced some of the biggest smooth jazz hits and now he takes it to the next level with an all live ensemble featuring some of the best players in the genre. This latest blend of instrumental R&B, funk, & soul is as good as it gets.
The bar has certainly been raised with fuller arrangements, more variations, and drum hits from each kit to help round out this collection. In addition the multi-track drums have been included for each kit allowing for maximum flexibility in your mixes. In total, there is 3.4 GB of original content and 28 smoking hot construction kits. From guitars and basses to saxes and rhodes, each part has been recorded with the highest professional standards. Don't accept any substitutes because this stuff is the real deal and is sure to boost any smooth jazz production.
This product is part of Big Fish Audio's KLI series which includes a custom Kontakt interface. The Kontakt format includes patches of each construction kit, allowing for quick and easy arrangements of the parts. In addition there are "sliced loops" patches which lay out each individual slice of a loop on the keys to create new and original custom parts. Create, arrange, tweak, and mix all within the Kontakt format.
The KLI version of this product comes with the KLI 2.0 update and comes in both Kontakt 4 and Kontakt 5 versions. For those with the full version of Kontakt 5, take advantage of the new high quality and extremely flexible new time stretching algorithm as well as a bunch of new included FX.
