The long-awaited sequel from Neil Conti to his legendary 'Funky drums from Hell'. Brian Eno contributes special mixes to ensure you won't be disappointed!
IN A NUTSHELL:
Great drumming, edgy production and an obsessive pursuit of the ultimate groove ensure this is another classic, truly a work of art.
"Man this sounds fat! Noise free, but warm and fat...Brilliant recorded stuff period!...the sound quality is 100% fat! It's mixed so nicely and it really grooves...very hip sounding...I find these loops very, very useful... it's definitely an 'alone on a island' pick!" - Raapie.nl
ABOUT THE PRODUCER:
Neil Conti is one of the UK's leading drummers and, as well as being an integral member of Prefab Sprout over the years, has also worked with David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Annie Lennox, Deep Forest, Youssou N'Dour, Thomas Dolby, Primal Scream, Level 42, Cher, Steve Winwood and many more. Brian Eno is widely acknowledged as one of the finest producers alive today.
Long live mixes and jams (with key loops sliced out in appropriate formats) as well as shorter loops categorized as Extreme, Resonant and Dry. Hundreds of loops in total. Stylistically very human, creative and warm. This collection was recorded over many years and carefully processed through the finest available analogue processing by Brian Eno and Daniel Lazerus - as you would expect you can almost hear these drums sing!
GENERAL: REX files are amazing! They are files created by Propellerhead's ReCycle that scan lice up any suitable rhythmic sample and produce a file that includes the sample data and sequence information. These files can be loaded by many of today's most popular software (Reason, Logic, EXS24, Cubase, Digital Performer, and many more!) and will automatically play at any tempo you choose. The software will also give you loads of additional options that allow you to control much more too - use the groove with other sounds, knock out a specific element or take out hits to use in your own loops, and much more! REX2 files are stereo and REX(1) files mono. MOST software supports both formats. You can even import REX files into ReCycle and export them to the huge number of samplers that supports. REXing files is a very skilled job. Some files are easy but a well-REXed library can take a huge amount of work to create. AMG released the World's first REX and REX2 CDs and have been pioneers of the format. If you've never used REX files check them out, once you've used them you'll never go back!
SPECIFIC: This CD features REX versions of every sample from the collection!
