8Gb of Playable Patches, Technique and Inspiration  

Ever since we started the F9 TRAX range of releases, we’ve been bowled over by the response from our friends and customers at F9. Coming from a disco background, I wanted to personally take this release to a level not seen anywhere else in the sample industry.

Welcome to F9 TRAX - Electric Disco II

With over 160 patches across an extraordinary 8Gb sound library and created over 5 months, we feel this release is untouched in its detail, power and price-point. Releasing during 2022, we are painfully aware of the issues all creative people face with cost-of-living rising across the entire planet so we’ve done our absolute best to keep this as reasonable as we can.

Production Tutorial Part 1 - Intro and Drums / FX

If you’re new to F9 TRAX, please buckle up - This release contains 5 entire DAW projects for Logic Pro X and Ableton Live with additional full-length WAV stem editions, plus the patches converted to Kontakt 5.8.1 onwards.

Our DAW TRAX projects are completely powered by multi-sampled instruments played via midi, giving you access to absolutely every nuance and note, making these the most flexible and downright useful template releases in existence.

Absolutely no 3rd-party plugins are required to run these projects - we use only built-in DAW tools from Logic and Ableton. Let us show you exactly how good your DAW can sound when it's fed the correct material. No need to worry about updates either!

Production Tutorial Part 2 - Basses & Guitars

Each DAW project comes with a detailed description called a session note that covers its production, sounds, music and mixing so we can not only give you the immense library but show you exactly how to use them in the comfort of your own creative space.

You can pick apart any aspect of these projects in your own time and see how professional and musically rich productions are composed, produced and finished.

For a long time I’ve been threatening to put together videos about disco production techniques Then - we had a brainwave - add all the tricks to these track projects and show you everything in the walkthrough videos.

I truly hope you love this release - it was built with love and passion for the modern collision between electronica and disco - a genre that always has and always will be the people’s music!

The Projects ...F9 EDII San Fran Screenshots

F9 TRAX San Fransisco 123Bpm C Minor 

  • This project is all about a groove - the main bass vamp that is this project’s defining theme. We pull away from it in numerous ways throughout the production, whether that be to chordal modulations or more simplistic one-note vamps, or the classic late-70s-styled disco breakdown that’s filled to the rafters with Disco Synth Fx from this pack’s sound menus. The very best vamps and riffs are nearly always quite simple and play to the minor pentatonic scale so coming out for a moment or two ( check the chords just before the middle disco breakdown ) can really help to drive the power of your main riff home once you return to it.
  • Lead sounds sampled from the world’s most famous 3 Oscillator synth provide soaring melodies from bar 65 onwards whilst staccato brass from the exclusive F9 Playable instruments add drama and energy. Everything always returns to the main groove until we end on a final coda section whose 4th chord ‘borrows’ a C major root chord before heading back to the minor scale.

  • During the early 80s as the post-disco movement collided with the brand new Electronica and Synthesiser scene, dance music changed forever. From the moment Donna Summer’s seminal classic ‘I Feel Love’ graced the world's dance floors, a genie was let out of a bottle never to return. In Europe ( Germany and Italy in particular ) the clash of synthesisers, drum machines and disco took off like a rocket.
  • With this project we wanted to pay tribute to the Italo-disco and northern European Hi-Nrg movements, but with a contemporary twist. This project perfectly illustrates the classic analogue and digital synth sources used for the detailed sampling process of this pack’s patch library.

  • Disco and house music have always been a perfect match. The main house rhythm was pretty much a direct copy of the sloshy open-hat end of late 70s disco and we wanted to cover it here but with a modern production edge and flourishes. I’ve been asked many times to supply a TRAX project nodding to the freemasons material and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
  • The main musical section uses a ton of harmonic tricks that I will talk about on this page in the video covering the music. We’ve thrown as many as we possibly could in here. It’s all about knowing where and when to break the rigidity of your chosen musical scale and plunder the richer notes.
  • This is production is a perfect example of the depth of the amazing patch library contained in this release working together.

F9 TRAX Ritual 123Bpm G Minor

  • There’s been a powerful collision between Nu Disco and Pop just recently and with this production, we wanted to show how these two genres can gel together perfectly. This project moves between contemporary pop sections with drone basses and atmosphere to funk-driven chorus and bridge sections seamlessly.
  • An immensely tight rhythm section carries a background played on the “Soul Pluck’ instrument from the collection and we add carefully considered layers of instrumentation as we progress.
  • Sonically this is deliberately modern and illustrates just how contemporary disco sounds this decade. In times of strife, all roads lead to disco.

F9 TRAX Republic 110Bpm C Minor

  • Contemporary Pop and R&B have been colliding with Nu-disco for some time and here we drop the tempo and come off the dance floor for a moment at 110Bpm. We also wanted to show you how important layering of Electric pianos and warm synth sounds can be, but most importantly we wanted to show you an important musical trick employed on the 1st chord of the principal musical section.
  • Warm, musical Keys are layered together and the use of Cmajor 7th as the 1st chord of the main harmonic sequence instantly gives out a bright feeling of summer. We add many other musical sections to show you just how versatile these Major-led sequences can be and the alternative sections delve into the more digitally sourced patches of this collection, instantly providing some contrast from the main analogue and electric piano patches in use throughout.
  • We’ve used two of the multi-sampled electric bass patches in this collection - see if you can hear where the second takes over.
