What is George Duke Soul Treasures?
It’s like having access to a bunch of George Duke studio sessions, royalty free…to use however you wish! No seriously, it’s like they took George Duke…along with his personal engineer Erik Zobler, locked them in the studio, and told them to play some goodness if they ever wanted to smell the fresh air again.
Okay…maybe they weren’t that ruthless, but you know…getting someone of George’s skill to sit down and record a bunch of random loops for other folks to use is quite a feat in itself. It’s over 500 loops, in a customized kontakt player instrument, tempo-synced and ready to slice.
It’s a sampler’s dream!
I wasn’t even worried about how it would sound…it’s freaking George Duke, teamed up with his personal engineer, put into an instrument from NI. That said, it was a lot more diverse than I first expected.
