    Product Information

    Disco House Sessions takes you back to how we used to do it, recreating the sounds and flavours from seminal party places such as the Paradise Garage and Studio 54, where classic DJ`s like Larry Levan would play forgotten classics that now top the charts in remixed form and which fill our cities finest dancefloors!

     

    From the 1970's, Loopmasters bring you all the way back to the present day with slamming house grooves that will shake the dance-floor back to its disco roots. They took an exhaustive and affectionate look back at the forgotten sounds of labels like Salsoul, and artists like Alfredo, Dan Hartman, First Choice, Loletta Holloway, and all the wonderful disco producers that existed during that golden era, and recreated the sound to put these awesome disco samples at your fingertips.

     

    Disco House Sessions comes jammed with over 1,300 original and copyright free disco samples including over 350 awesome drum and percussion loops, rhythm guitars, rhodes key loops, live bass parts, filter loops, disco hits, sax riffs, and classic retro synths which have all been professionally processed with love and affection to give you the coolest, funkiest, retro edge and authentic disco sound to mix into your tracks.

     

    When recording this download, Loopmasters re-created the classic 1970's sound with vintage drum kits, classic mics, and processors similar to those found in studios back in the day. They felt it was important to be as true as possible to the classic sound and essence of disco, keeping it as it was, before the avalanche of commercial and manufactured disco-pop that followed. Sample Disco House Sessions today!

     

    The download includes ACIDized WAV and Stylus RMX compatible REX2 samples, and patches for Reasons NN-XT, Halion, Kontakt, EXS-24, and SFZ compatible samplers. Only the best musicians, studios and recording equipment have been used in the making of this CD, and every sample is guaranteed copyright free for use in your music.

    Disco House Sessions is a further addition to...

    by Sound on Sound Magazine (February 2007)

    Disco House Sessions is a further addition to the Loopmasters Origin series. As with other libraries in the series, the loops are provided in Acidised WAV (900 files) and Stylus RMX compatible REX2 (440 loops) formats. Also included are 18 instrument patches for the NNXT, Halion, Kontakt, EXS24 and SFZ software samplers. In total, the CD-ROM contains 630MB of sample data, and a separate audio CD is also included for auditioning purposes.

    In common with the other Origin libraries, the WAV files are organised into folders based on instrument type, rather than as song construction kits. The 300+ drum loops are divided into sub-folders based on original recording tempo, which ranges from 110 to 128 bpm. Most of the loops are full-kit-based and the titles of the individual files specify whether the material is of the disco or house variety. The disco loops dominate and, while they could easily work within a contemporary dance track, there is a very 1970s flavour. The house loops also have a distinctly disco feel and the key difference is often the sounds used — many of the house loops feature much bigger kick-drum sounds, for example. Usefully, there is a smaller number of percussion loops and a separate folder of drum fills is also provided, so a complete drum track could easily be constructed. Nearly 300 single-hit drum samples are also included, so you can roll your own loops if required.

    The rest of the collection is dominated by loops and one-shot files, covering bass, guitar, keys, brass, sax, vocal and some effected/filtered samples. These are a bit of a mixed bag. For example, there are some excellent guitar loops, very funky and classic disco in style, that would suit anything from a Starsky And Hutch soundtrack to a Jamiroquai-style number. Equally, many of the bass, keys (mostly piano and Rhodes) and brass loops are very useable, while the pre-processed loops in the Filter folder are instantly gratifying (even if it would be easy enough to apply your own processing to the unfiltered samples). Some of the Disco Hitz samples are also great, but others seem rather truncated and would be more useful if they had been allowed to fade more naturally. The Sax Riffs folder is also a bit of a disappointment: unlike the rest of the loop material, these loops did not appear to have been fully Acidised.

    I'm not sure there is anything remarkably new in Disco House Sessions but the samples are well recorded and played. They are also good fun to use, and I'd have no problem placing them in commercial projects. If you need to add a disco vibe to your dance tracks (think of Madonna's Confessions On A Dance Floor), Loopmasters Disco House Sessions provides a very cost-effective starting point.

    by Computer Music Magazine (January 2007)

    The sample CD market is littered with disco- and house- inspired titles, so does this one bring anything new to the party? Not really, but it certainly delivers what it promises.

    As you’d expect, the beats are of the four-to-the-floor variety, while the basses, guitars and keyboards have both jazzy and funky tinges to them. There are filtered loops for those who can’t be bothered to create their own, and even some brass samples. Basically, Jay Kay would approve.

    It may not be essential, but Disco House Sessions is certainly a release that you can have a lot of fun with.
