Following the success of the first Funk/Soul Horns sample library, Funk/Soul Productions brings you Funk/Soul Horns 2: a massive collection of over 2000 rock-solid horn section licks and over 950 solo-instrument licks created for use in all sorts of Funk, Soul, R&B, Hip Hop, and Pop productions.
FSH2 takes over where FSH1 left off by adding more musical styles, including Philly Soul, Memphis Soul, Detroit Soul, and Soul Jazz, choosing the size and make-up of each section to match each style.
We also added some new instruments to the sections, including soprano and alto flute and muted trumpet, and with Big Fish Audio's KLI format you can easily change the key and tempo of any horn section or solo lick to match the tempo and key of your song.
Like its predecessor, Funk/Soul Horns 2 presents each horn section lick as a pre-mixed full-section loop and with each individual instrument part broken out as a separate loop. The pre-mixed section loops are fast and easy to use. Just add a little reverb to taste, and you're ready to go.
For those who like to get into more detail, the individual instrument loops allow you to arrange and remix the instruments any way you like. You can choose which horns you want to use in a given section, allowing you to use the same lick multiple times in an arrangement, yet add musical variety by changing which horns play the lick in different sections of your song.
You can also control volume-level, EQ , panning, and additional processing for each individual instrument. Want to hear more trumpets, and maybe less bari? Want to pan the trumpet parts to one side and the flutes to another? It's easy to do in FSH2. And with Big Fish Audio's KLI format you can easily change the pitch of any note, allowing you to change horn section parts that are in major keys to minor keys, change section-voicings, and alter or add chord-tensions. Thanks to KLI's flexibility, you can create any number of different horn parts from the same horn section lick.

Funk Soul Horns 2 has been formatted in all the industry standard file types: Apple Loops, Acidized WAV and REX. Every piece of commonly used hardware and software will be compatible with at least one of these fully developed and usable formats.
Each audio file has been expertly cut and edited to loop perfectly and has been recoded in the highest quality 24-bit rate to ensure absolutely top quality end results.
If you work primarily with Apple Products be sure to utilize the extra loop tagging functionality in Garageband and Apple Logic as well as Apple's proprietary time stretching and pitch bending algorithms.
If you're working inside Protools, Cubase, Fruity Loops, Ableton Live, Sony ACID or any other DAW on the market, the Acidized WAV files are the perfect fit for time stretching and pitch bending capabilities. The Acidized WAV files can also be used as standard wav files in almost any music tool in production today.
Beat-makers and artists who love sampled melodic slices work well with our REX/RMX format that takes advantage of all the powerful programming found in Stylus RMX and the Dr. Octo REX player in Propellerheads Reason DAW.
The KLI 2.0 Series allows you to quickly arrange and mix tracks in our Kit Combo Patches and make completely original drum tracks using our custom drum patches that include both multi-track drum loops and one-shot samples.
Libraries in the KLI Series (Kontakt Loop Interface) include a custom interface for tweaking loops and sounds beyond what was previously possible. Each loop is given its own patch and can be extensively edited by manipulating the various slices of the loop. In addition, groups of loops that play together have been given their own patch as well making it easy to quickly arrange and mix loops on the fly. Each patch in the Kontakt player will automatically sync with your DAW's host tempo making integration with your production seamless. This library comes with three different patch types:
Kit Combos - 83 patches are included in the “Kit Combos” section (59 of which are included in the Solos, licks & phrases patches). Each kit folder containts a “Premixed” patch, “Stem” patch and several single instrument patches for the solos, licks & phrases. “Premixed” patches contain the full mixes of all sections within each kit. “Stem” patches contain the seperate instruments, within their own group, and laid out on the keyboard from “Section 1” to “Section 18 (-23)” so that you can easily mix each individual instrument into your track. Modulation Keys are located in the C0-C1 octave range, loops start at C2 on the keyboard.
FX Suite - Each patch includes a suite of pre-selected FX to shape the sound and processing of the samples
Solos, Licks and Phrases - These patches are located inside the Kit Combo folders. All patches are organized by instrument. For example, all trumpet solos, licks and phrases for the first kit will be found in the patch titled “01 Trumpet Licks” within “01 Solo Licks & Phrases”.
Sliced Loops - Each loop from the product has been given its own patch and can be edited extensively using the “loop fx” interface. The full loop can be triggered at C0. The loop can be played backward at D0. Individual slices start at C1 on the keyboard.
