CD-ROM ( hits & grooves)
Akai and Roland.
Includes Audio CD
Grooves that have existed only
in your imagination. Fluid rhythms forged by a synthesis of propelling
live drum grooves and unusual, organic percussion loops. The live elements,
performed by some of L.A.'s most creative session players, have been transformed
into a unique sonic texture via ground-breaking signal processing techniques
and state of the art instruments such as the Korg Wavedrum™.
These highly-original grooves have lots of space and are presented in
a Construction Kit format similar to the Supreme Beats collection. Many
of the grooves are presented in both "Natural Acoustic" and
"Hybrid Remix" versions for a new level of versatility.
If you've been frustrated at the lack of slow tempos on most loop discs,
this is the library you've been searching for. Tempos start at a laid-back
52 BPM and go to a cruising 126 BPM.
The full-blown CD-ROM version is organized to make mixing and matching
the individual elements effortless. It also includes more groove variations
and remixes, as well as a library of over 450 single hits of Brush Drums,
Percussion and Wavedrum sounds. The inclusion of the Audio CD with the
CD-ROM makes the process of finding the groove you need faster than ever.
The liquid concept is two-fold : Sparse "hand-played" grooves
that feel great, combined with a focus on uncharted sonic territory. An
inspiring, one-of-a-kind library from producer Eric Persing.
5 stars Sound on Sound review
"Liquid Grooves really is a masterpiece of layering, effecting and
processing...a hugely atmospheric feel...the rhythms are musically useful,
and virtually all of them spark compositional ideas...By buying the CD-ROM
version -which includes the Audio CD for quick referencing, all the elements
of every full mix and remix are available individually to give the user
maximum flexibility...Eric Persing at his creative best.."
Keyboard Magazine (rated Outstanding)
"..Truly inspiring...expertly performed and recorded, and the sound
quality is uniformly excellent...The basic grooves are very interesting...The
heavily effected versions are striking in their attitude and atmosphere...producer
Eric Persing has outdone himself with creative processing...Although all
of the loops start out as acoustic performances, by the time he has finished
with the remix variations they're perfect for trip-hop, lo-fi, or acid
jazz tracks...good use of the Korg Wavedrum; perfect for the other-worldly
vibe of this disc...excellent velocity crossfading between the soft and
louder hits on the CD-ROM version...Musical, grooving, clever ... Aw,
these loops just plain sound great...played right in the pocket..the recording
quality and performances are first-class...If these loops don't inspire
you, hang it up."
