If moving at a snail-like pace is something you have to score within your music, Sonokinetic’s new library could help speed things up, as Dave Gale explains…



As if to ensure exactly what it stands for, Largo draws immediate inspiration from the Italian musical term, where Largo means slow or broad; the clue, as they say, is in the name. Where the instruction Largo sits as a BPM count might typically be from around 40-50BPM, although as is the case with many forms of classical music, this is not an exact science, and while Sonokinetic’s offering might have been recorded slowly, it will lock to all manner of DAW-based tempos.


With a pretty substantial amount of content, Largo is firmly a phrase and/or loop-based library, which is designed to offer phrases that are especially suited to slower tempi. Thanks to some smart automatic sync’ing technology, phrases will intelligently switch tempo to something that doesn’t sound immediately outlandish, so if you choose to run at 110BPM, Largo will offer something which is in truth a more sedate 55BPM.
