Seamless Integration With All Digital Audio Workstations


Y'all. I lived in New Orleans for 8.5 years and I can tell you - THIS IS THE STUFF. No other collection out there compares. Need to add a little Mardi Gras to your game? It's here. Or maybe you need the drama of a slow dirge? Got it. Second-line your heart out with loops far easier to use than it is to pronounce Tchoupitoulas. 

Put your audience right in front of the stage at Tipitina's - you can do it with this pack. All of it recorded so well and infinitely mix-up-able. Stop looking for authentic New Orleans. You've found it. Funky Gumbo is THE STUFF.

    I really bought this for the horn parts, and I was not let down. So funky and NOLA sounding. Used the horns in a session already. Well recorded and fit great! I transposed it to fit the key and still sounded fantastic.

    New Orleans Flair

    Grab a beignet. Take a deep breath of the French Quarter air. It's time for a little funky gumbo. This is the perfect name for this collection of laidback-yet-driving loops. Everything you need to make a little creole swing, down to the washboard. Another exceptional collection.

    Authentic sounding drums.

    I was trying to get away from cookie cutter drums and this library helped me achieve that goal. Very nice product with excellent customer support.

    Mississippi, here we come!

    Jazzy, groovy, funky, rootsy - from stomps to funerals, Dixieland to Zydeco: the 12 Kits have you on a rollercoaster ride around & right into the heart of New Orleans.

    Utterly authentic: obviously, as always! While all the tracks perfectly capture the vibes, to me especially the brass and drums are crême - and honestly: how many washboard or Zydeco/Dixieland performances do you have yet to sculpt to your taste? Need anything near these genres - don't look further!

    As usual with We Sound Human's GUI of late you have great control over the loops in the Kontakt version to chop, mangle and remix, plus a useful set of effects directly accessible.

    Mom's Godd meal

    Funky Gumbo is like coming home on vacation and eating your mum's good meals: real Soul food!

    En bref c'est les vacances et tu rentre à la maison, dans le sud et là ta maman te fait tous les bon plats créole de cette soul food que tu aimes tant !

    Funku Gumbo ce sont les musiques de la Nouvelle Orleans avec des pistes et des parties qui fonctionnent bien ensemble, brefs des kits de contruction bien foutus. A condition cependant de respecter les tonalités et tempo. Dans logic pro des artefacts apparaissent rapidement si on s'éloigne trop du tempo et de la tonalité d'origine…

    Sinon c'est vraiment typique et authentique dans chaque style.

    Bravo !

Yes! The Test Drive versions of our products are covered by the protection and royalty-free coverage the above license agreement provides.

What formats are included?

Our libraries include both the Multi-Format and Kontakt editions.

Both editions come included and contain identical song kits, performances, instruments, and content. You can use the Multi-Format edition and work directly in your DAW of choice. You don't have to use Kontakt to use the Multi-Format edition of the library.


The Multi-Format edition comes with WAV, Apple Loops, and Rex file types. The Multi-Format edition works with all DAWs and is compatible with your DAW of choice. 

  • Wav/Acid — WAV files are the industry standard and compatible with all of today's major sampling and looping software on the market including FL Studio, Ableton, Logic Pro X, Steinberg Cubase, Presonus Studio One, Cockos REAPER, Digidesign Pro Tools and many more. The Acidised Wave files contain additional metadata similar to the Apple Loops and Rex2 formats that allow for additional time-stretching, looping, and tempo functionality. Whilst they are likely to work in all software programs that support the .wav format, they may not display the looping and tempo information in some programs.

  • Apple Loops — Apple Loops are compatible with Logic Pro X, Garageband, Apple Logic Express, Soundtrack Pro, and more, and enable you to adjust and adapt to different tempos and keys automatically due to the encoded hit-points and other metadata contained alongside the audio.

  • Rex — Rex2 Loops compatible with Propellerhead Reason, PreSonus Studio One, Steinberg Cubase, Steinberg Nuendo, Cockos REAPER, Apple Logic, Digidesign Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Cakewalk Project5, Cakewalk Sonar, Image-Line FL Studio, MOTU Digital Performer, MOTU Mach 5 (software sampler), and Synapse Audio Orion Platinum, among others and are similar to contain metadata along with the audio that allow for additional functionality like time-stretching.

  • Multitrack Drums — Multitrack Drums are provided in the 24-bit WAV file format and contain each of the drum kit pieces like Kick, Snare, Hat, and more as there own separate file, allowing you to have complete control over each of the drum kit elements in your mix. The multitrack recordings of performances contain the complete studio session with nothing held back.
Kontakt Edition

The Kontakt edition requires the full version of Kontakt 5.6.5 or higher. The Kontakt edition will not work with the free Kontakt Player or as a stand-alone VST instrument. 

The Kontakt edition is not a multi-sampled virtual instrument but rather a phrase-based engine built from performances, loops, and samples that allow you to create an authentic performance from the recorded content.
