Description: Authenticity and originality.
Part of our Elastik instrument series, this library offers a diverse collection of beautiful musical phrases. The complexity of the instrument means that it is very difficult to recreate it as a virtual instrument. However, with this vast collection of performance-based loops, it’s incredibly easy to add realistic Pedal Steel performances to your own music.
The library contains 2.8 GB of data and 568 loops and phrases. They are divided into two groups with 284 unique loops, both dry (no effects) and processed (mostly with reverb added). This gives the user either instant “ready-to-use” versions, or full control by adding their own processing options.
The phrases are organized by tempo, with the original recording tempo ranging from 70 to 120 bpm. They are also recorded in different keys. As with all Elastik Instrument Series libraries, playback and recording quality is of the highest standard. However, the recorded sound is the same for all loop categories. Elastik’s powerful tempo matching and pitch shifting tools make it easy to mix and match phrases from different categories to create a unique performance.
Pedal Steel is the perfect choice for country music producers and is the perfect addition to our Country Loops library, while soundtrack composers will find a library perfect for creating compelling country phrases. Pedal Steel isn’t just about traditional country music. The instrument regularly finds its way into blues (try it with our Blues Colors library), bluegrass and American folk. However, don’t let this get in the way of your experimentation. For example, added to chill-pop or RnB, the soft Pedal Steel sound can create just the right mood. So, whether it’s traditional country music or a more experimental crossover style, Pedal Steel’s sound raises the bar and gets inside right away.
