Groove Shadow Elastik
Sound On Sound, January 2008
This new library from Ueberschall pumps some new life into one of their legacy product concepts: Groove Shadows. The original Groove Shadows CD sample library contained a selection of abstract rhythmic textures designed to be used as layers to support your main drum programming, rather than standing on their own. Two groups of Groove Shadows were targeted at more foreground and background use, and a selection of different common tempos was provided to suit different projects. I found the background layers, in particular, really useful in my own music
You get more than 430 different presets in Groove Shadow Elastik, each providing a mixed loop, as well as (typically) four isolated layers - electively a construction kit - and a handful of the most characteristic one-shot samples for adding quick programming touches. This is an enormous amount of material, going far beyond the scope of the original Groove Shadows CD, and the carefully reconstructed elements
work in tandem with Elastik Player´s beat-slicing routine to offer phenomenal flexibility when it comes to fitting the samples around pre-existing arrangements - which is the raison d´etre here, after all. The only thing I pined for were some quick ´loop menu´ presets, placing only the mixed loops on adjacent keys for auditioning purposes.
To cut a long story short, I´m glad to report the Groove Shadow Elastik is bigger,
better, and lots more usable than its Audio CD forebear, and I don´t hesitate to give it five stars - I´ll certainly be using it to death!
Groove Shadow Elastik
Remix Magazine, June 2007
Devoted entirely to polyrhythmic backdrops to layer behind your main beat, Groove
Shadow Elastik is filled with abstract effects loops, stretched circuit-bends and
Shadows are categorized by light, medium and hard intensities, which sounds cool in
theory because it allows you to approach your groove-building dynamically. But in
practice, those guidelines aren´t very well executed and had lots of false alarms and
The Elastik player´s "loop eye" interface proved to be the ideal host for such a library.
Layers and elements can be individually filtered, panned, reversed, ptich-shifted,
time-stretched or sent to separate outputs. By adjusting the start and end loop-
points, I was able to mesh whole elements or partial sections together in perfectly
locked time. You can even auto-splice elements down to a granular level with the
results mapped across the keyboard when you´re feeling all Aphex Twin-like. Groove
Shadow Elastik feels as much at home for film and game composers as it should be
for triggering live during performances or DJ sets.
