Hey what’s good fam, lets get right into it!
You know I’m an EP fanatic, and Neo Soul Keys has been one of my favorites since it was released
Well….there’s a new version of Neo Soul Keys out…
Since I loved the original so much, Jamal sent over the updated version for me to check it out…and I’m still in love
What is Neo Soul Keys 3x?
It’s the updated version of a dedicated Kontakt library for Neo Soul EP sounds
This version comes with the Wurli, Stage, and Suitcase EP
It’s a Kontakt Player instrument so you don’t need the full version to use it
And it’s designed to really capture the Neo Soul/RnB EP sound
- content: 3.36GB (Lossless compression)
- format: Kontakt 5 and Kontakt 5 player
- price: $149.99 ($50 update for Neo Soul Keys owners)
- site: http://neosoulep.com
How does it sound?
It sounds smooth, warm, gritty, and dope!
I love the sound of this EP library all around, it really captures the smooth soulful sound many of us love from an EP
You still get all the controls needed to go in and quickly tweak your sounds right from the interface, and the controls make sense based on whichever instrument you’re using.
You can get a more bellish sound by adding more tine, more of a mechanical sound by adjusting the key up/down samples, and add more bark or dirt as desired.
The recordings of the samples sound great and being able to choose between clean or dirty, mono or “butter” and clean or tube saturated really gives you a lot of options
What’s the bottom line?
If you like warm, smooth sounding EPs, get it, period.
If you have the previous version of Neo Soul Keys, it’s worth the update to get the other two libraries as well as the updated samples/amps and impulses compared to the original.
I give Neo Soul Keys 3X an easy 5 out of 5 subs, it is still my favorite sounding EP library to date
I love the sound that it captures and they way that you can go in and tweak it yourself.
Definitely check it out, or just go on and pick it up, seriously: http://neosoulep.com
