Montreal, Quebec—March 10, 2020—Applied Acoustics Systems releases the Tropical Jam sound pack for the Strum GS-2 and AAS Player plug-ins in collaboration with resident sound designer Niall McCallum.
Resident sound designer Niall McCallum welcomes you to your own slice of strummed Caribbean paradise with Tropical Jam—a Strum GS-2 sound set with an abundance of laidback grooves and an awesome vintage vibe. From sub-heavy muted riffs and offbeat chords to delay-drenched stabs and relaxed picked melodies, this preset collection will have you falling in love with the spiraling sound of the spring reverb all over again.
Paying respect to the legends of reggae and dub—from the heavily rhythmic finger-work of Sly & Robbie and Bob Marley & The Wailers to the booming sound system aesthetics of King Tubby and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry—Tropical Jam features 12 styles, 84 guitar presets, and 84 strumming patterns playable with your own chord progressions. Slow down the tempo and reach for your shades!
The Tropical Jam sound pack is available now as an instant download delivery package. Tropical Jam works with both the Strum GS-2 plug-in (sold separately) and the included AAS Player plug-in.
