Fire up this funk!” Divided Souls Entertainment holds no punches with this latest pack entitled Funk-O-Rama. Bringing you 40 kits rooted in that classic late-70s/early 80s Funk, this time out they invited some of their funky friends to give you exclusive sounds found NOWHERE else!
First up, multi-instrumentalist and master percussionist, Carl “Butch” Smalls, who played with Parliament, Bootsy’s Rubber Band, The Dramatics, and more, brings his percussion talents that were so prevalent and integral on classic Death Row Records’ releases from Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, 2Pac, and Tha Dogg Pound to name but a few. The shakers, vibraslaps, and congas come alive for the end user, allowing them the opportunity to use vintage instruments played by a musician with one of kind resume.
How can you have an expansion pack covering this Funk era without some talk box? Next up, SlimWav (Diddy, Mary J. Blige, Justin Bieber, Summer Walker, Bryson Tiller, and more) delivers some expert vocals via this instrument, allowing the end user to season up their productions with some hard-to-find funked out vocals. He REALLY opens up, gets busy, and rounds out the kit with excellent vocal fills and phrasings.
Lastly, be sure to check the 24 Keygroups that we carefully processed using outboard analog gear: SSL Fusion and Eventide H7600. These synths, leads, and basses provide a unique vibe as this marks the first time we’ve processed outboard synths like this.
