They are also successful Film, TV and Production music writers with their tracks having been featured on many hundreds of productions around the world.
Time+Space has been appointed as the official worldwide distributor of Freshtone’s sample libraries and are pleased to announce the first release – Lost Tapes Vol 1 – which is available now as a DVD or download.
43 Funk and Soul construction kits, all recorded to tape using only mics, instruments and equipment from the sixties and seventies
Lost Tapes Volume 1 resonates with the textural sensations of an age, with that human touch – spontaneous and exciting. 43 choice cuts featuring the instruments, and the playing style of the era, with the gestures of soul, pure and funky, and sounds of the ghosts of pop’s past.
In WAV, Aiff, Acid WAV and Rex 2 format, Lost Tapes was recorded in a unique environment. The tracks were played on a wide range of sixties instruments from legendary manufacturers such as Burns, Baldwin and Dan Electro into vintage Selmer and Vox amplification.
Premier and Ludwig kits also from that decade were recorded using a selection of rare ribbon mics and old tone wheel Hammond B3 and A100 organs further evoke the past. All tracks were recorded onto an old Studer 1” tape machine via an EMI Redd desk which once resided in the famous Decca Studios.
The result is a refreshing, genuinely authentic collection of old skool tracks that evoke a bygone era and genuinely capture the spirit of the age. These wonderful loops will enable writers and producers to sculpt some classic tunes, so enjoy!
RRP: £39.95 / €47.95 / $63.95
