Product Description for the Spitfire THePETEBOX
THEPETEBOX HUMAN BEATBOX
A definitive collection of human beatbox samples produced by a master of his art. THePETEBOX showcases how the human voice can be an entire band through his years of award winning artistry and innovation.
THePETEBOX is a solo performer, musician, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose pioneering live show has ignited audiences across the world. Breaking out as an award-winning beatboxer he soon redefined the genre through the use of his loop pedal, guitar and an otherworldly, multi-phonic voicebox. Witnessing a THePETEBOX live show is like experiencing a magic trick, reveal on reveal, loop on loop, one man building tracks that are as sonically massive as any full band setup or DJ set. He possesses a primal talent and has transformed it into music that captures the imagination of people from all walks of life and from every corner of the world.
Human Beat Boxing has existed since the dawn of man. Our voice is our primary musical instrument and beatboxing is the art of imitating and creating non-lyrical sounds with this instrument. The term BeatBoxing and art-form became synonymous with Hip Hop culture in the 1980s with famous early exponents like Doug E Fresh. Modern beatboxing was largely inspired by the seminal talents of Reeps One and Alem. Alongside the UK dominance in the global EDM phenomenon a growing beat boxing sub culture has bubbled under the surface. Spitfire is proud to introduce the sampling community to one of Great Britain's most decorated, innovative and influential representatives of this art form...
The library contains 60 individual deep and multi sampled articulations/ patches, we've divided these into 8 categories and multi patches so you can load in audition and switch between articulations, with a number of mic positions and signals.
Part of the Producer Portfolio which answers requests for drier sounding more manipulable samples, for more non-orchestral material, and for libraries that are affordable to all. Recorded by the Spitfire team in a number of smaller but excellent London studios, including the new Spitfire HQ in King’s Cross and their old favourite, the classic vintage studio Air-Edel in Marylebone. With a useful selection of classic/ vintage, modern, broad and room microphones, the Producer Portfolio features the talents of legendary musicians, producers, composers and programmers. With Spitfire’s existing orchestral and definitive ranges, we’re very proud of the “impression” that the hall at Air studios gives, but it’s not right for every application. With this new range, we have recorded in smaller spaces, close, mid range and room perspectives with carefully positioned ‘A class’ mics and pre-amps to give you the raw materials you need to make these sounds your own.
