Soundware Roundup: Soulful House Sounds By 5Pin Media
This fourth title from 5 Pin Media’s MIDI Focus is built from a selection of house sounds. Like the title says, this is geared for the production of soulful, deep, disco, funky or tech house. It has been designed to provide the user with inspiration and to get an organic vibe into any house production.
Soulful House Sounds has 25 construction MIDI kits, 1 Ableton Live 8 pack, 341 mutli-samples, 129 MIDI files, 17 patches for popular software samplers, 10 presets for Sylenth synthesizer, 12 Live 8 instruments and 20 WAV loops that will help you start your productions.
The key to this pack is the 129 MIDI files divided into 25 construction kits. They are labeled properly, with key and tempo information. With that being said, these customized MIDI files are highly usable. However, in the WAVS department only 20 loops are offered. I wish there had been more as the sax licks are very natural and musical. Overall, this 565 MB, 24-bit quality sample back is spot on for the soulful house sound.
