Big Fish Friday: Funk/Soul Productions Vintage Rhythm Section Review

19

Hey what’s good fam!

Back with another Big Fish Friday for you.

It just so happens there’s another release from Funk/Soul Productions that I wanted to show you.

This one is from their “Vintage” series, which you know I like.

Let’s check it out!

What is Vintage Rhythm Section?

vnrs01The whole idea behind this library is to provide the classic rhythm section sounds from the 60’s and 70’s.

So you get drums, keys, bass, and guitar, in the styles of R&B/Soul, Jazz, and Rock…all with that vintage style.

You know I had to get my hands on this one, as it sounded like it would be right up my alley!

It runs in the Kontakt 5 Player so you don’t need the full version to use it, it also has a nice and intuitive interface for quick tweaking.

Quick Specs

How does it sound?

Reel to Reel Tape RecorderThat’s really all that matters right? The sound!

This thing has a very vintage, soulful, organic vibe to it, which is what I like!

Nothing too crazy, well, besides some of the psychedelic lead guitar instruments, but no synths or anything like that.

This is a very straight forward collection of instruments useful for anyone that’s into soulful, vintage, jazzy, and even rock style production.

These are the types of sounds I reach for most often when I’m creating, it’s great to have them all in one library.

The drum kits are great, the percussion is real and the keyboards are very useful. I also found plenty of guitar and bass to use instantly.

Oh…the mod-wah feature is dope! Turns you’re modwheel into a wah pedal, and it sounds really good.

So what’s the bottom line?

When I first heard the name, I thought it would just be vintage style drum kits…I was still interested but not as much as I was when I found out it included keys, bass, and guitars as well.

If you’re someone into Neo Soul, Jazz, Rock, R&B, or you just want some vintage organic instruments then you should definitely consider checking this out.

5subsI give Vintage Rhythm Section 5 out of 5 subs, it presents a very focused and instantly usable collection of soulful instruments along with a simple and intuitive interface.

Seriously, I’ve been a fan of the whole vintage series from these guys, and this is no exception, it really is a complete collection of vintage instruments.

I was actually surprised at how well some of them stood on their own, usually in larger collections like this you don’t get all the detail or character you would from a dedicated library.

This can be the case specifically with things like the ep, organs, and bass, but also the drums and guitars. I found some really great instruments in each category.

You want something vintage and soulful with plenty of character? Check this collection out for sure.

Leave a comment below and let me know what you think!

    • I didn’t actually compare it, similar idea but seems the instruments are a bit more improved. I loved Vintage VI also though lol. The drums in here were really well done too, I’d have to go back and compare the two directly to see how they stack up against each other.

  3. Excellent review! LOL You do a better job selling this than the Big Fish Audio site. I already spent thousands on hardware and software, including Vintage Horns and Vintage Strings (Your reviews helped me decide on those as well). I wasn’t going to pick up Vintage Rhythm Section just yet, but your review changed my mind. I especially liked how you used it to create a demo track at the end. I’m still new to composing, but I love vintage funk / soul / R&B music like Isaac Hayes, Curtis Mayfield, Willie Hutch. That’s the kind of music I want to produce, and these instrument samples were made for that. Anyway thanks
