Latin Stacks: Live & Resampled pays homage to the classic sounds of South American rhythms, melodies and live instrumentation. Reminiscent of upbeat songs that hide themes of heartbreak, conflict and celebration. Created in collaboration with Arthouse Acoustics, we recorded live upright pianos, dusty trumpet stacks, melancholy guitars and moody double bass. Blending the time-honored motifs of crackling vintage Latin vinyl with the sounds of grindhouse cinema.
The Arthouse Acoustics team created full compositions and song sections and recorded with professional session musicians. These ‘stacks’ are included as full loops and also soloed layers. We curated the best selection of loops and one shots from the performances and chopped and sprinkled fx for instant inspiration.
We resampled the compositions creating loop layers that combine the sonics of rare vinyl with modern left-field sound design. Using classic hip-hop chopping, pitch and time, reversing, saturation and secret sauce, the samples could inspire trap and rap as easily as house, pop and EDM.
We also recorded traditional latin percussion rhythms, essential live percussion one shots and designed a full set of all new, complimentary modern trap drum loops. Thick and heavy kicks and snares, punchy reprocessed metal percs, stacked claps and hand drums. Every loop has been meticulously key-tagged and tempo-synced.
Latin Stacks: Live & Resampled by Capsun ProAudio is a journey from influence to inspiration, via talented pro musicians, thoughtful recording techniques and tasteful experimentation.
