F9's Epic Journey into French and Disco House.
We are immensely proud to present F9 Starlight, an extraordinary journey through everybody's favorite form of funk-based house, music - French, and Disco house.
This pack ended up being twice the size we expected as we just could not stop adding more elements. The production process was joyous as was the mixing and formatting.
Our mission is not just to inspire with this release, but to educate too. As always at F9, we went back to the original hardware and techniques used throughout the time when Parisian funk and sampled disco strings ruled, not only radio airwaves but the subsonic reverberations of the world's club systems.
If you've ever wondered what elements make up the house that Funk built then look no further.
In the comfort of your own DAW and studio space you can investigate and tear down then rebuild this incredible collection of lovingly prepared, stems, music, and funk.
Carefully formatted to give every producer maximum flexibility and inspiration. This pack excels. The core stem sets have been precisely cut into loops (and not just one or two bar loops but truly useful audio ) as well as over 1800 one-shot samples covering everything from the rhythm section, right up to the electric piano chords and bass parts.
All of these one-shots were then made available as sound menus for our principal sampler formats, including the free MPC Beats format, and Steinberg's FREE Halion Sonic SE.
Midi files are a vital part of modern production. And yes, in this release, every musical part, we could has been made available as midi. We have also organized the midi files twice - Once per instrument and once per stem project.

A new height in sample pack mixing…
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. Phillipe 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.
