So what is Suite Grooves 2?

It's basically a large collection of smooth jazy, funk, and rnb style instrumentals and riffs. Lots of live horns, keys, bass, drums, and help you capture that real smooth jazz sound. You even get the multi track drum parts for chopping or mixing however you wish...more flexibility is good. Don't forget the guitars as well...anything you can think of when you hear the words Smooth most likely in here.

Quick Specs:
content: 3.4GB

price: $99.95

How does it sound?

This library really captures the smooth raw jazzy sound in my opinion. I really dig the bass grooves, the keys, and the horns....especially the horns, very nice playing and recording. I also like that you get individual drum hits with this library, so you already have some drums that fit well with the rest of the content.
It really would have been cool if there were a few multisamples from the bass, keys, and some of the horns, that could really round it out and make it a smooth jazz workstation As usual the recordings are done well and have a nice quality to them

So what's the bottom line?

If this was a "regular" sample library, it would be able to hold it's own in the smooth jazz genre because the sounds and grooves are definitely silky Being able to pull this stuff up in Kontakt for slicing, time stretching, adding fx, and everything else really gives it an instant usability.
You don't have to use the loops, maybe you just want some jazzy kits, or a chord or two from one of the rhodes loops, it's really fast to do that here.

I give Suite Grooves 2 a 4 out of 5 subs, it's really a quality library with great sound and many creative possibilities.
