Starlight: French & Disco House Collection

US F9 Audio return with a stunning homage to classic genres      05/10/23

James Wiltshire (Freemasons and F9) is back with a stunning collection of French House and Disco House, all professionally processed through some of the finest studio gear money can buy. The pack comes with over 5GB of meticulously made content, including 345 Drums and FX Loops, 410 Musical Loops, and 1850+ Individual One Shots. Here's some info about the production process:

The best decision we made for this pack was to take it up to an SSL studio in London - Westpoint Studios 

Not only is the room acoustic excellent thanks to the recording architecture design, but the raw power of the magnificent console installed - the SL 4000 G series works extraordinarily well on house music. 

SSLs of this golden era have weight and clarity that is perfect for this style of mixing. Frank Zdar, famous for his work at Motorbass Studios and Cassius in Paris famously used an SL 4000 E series in nearly all of his work, mixing as if the desk were an instrument itself.

 Not only did Westpoint provide ample desk real estate, but the outboard collection is exceptional. We employed everything from a Briscati M7, Black Box HG2, Prism Maslec EQ, AMS reverbs, and a fantastic Fairchild recreation setup for the drums in a parallel configuration.  

 Here's a more thorough walkthrough, just out today:
