RE: Loops for SF Acid


I guess this is an ad :)

The company I work for (Cakewalk) is now putting out ACID-format loop
collections.  We have not really advertised them, so they are not well
known, but they are very high quality.


Here's my take on each collection:

The Loops of Hazzard collection is pretty cool & unique.  It's a collection
of country string loops (lap steel, steel guitar, bass and electric guitar
loops) performed by sidemen for Brooks and Dunn, Shania Twain and Dolly

We have two collections from X-MiX, Vol 1 is hip hop and dance loops, Vol 2
is Progressive House and Trance.  X-MiX produces a good percentage of major
label remixes, and Vol 2 features loops by Armand Van Helden.  All very
useable if you're looking for these styles of music.

In Your Face FX has a decent selection of sound effects that are well

Rockit Fuel is a collection of Bass, Guitar and Drum loops in popular
styles.  The drum loops are great for straight ahead music.

ProSamples is a sampling from the ProSamples series by East West, Zero-G 
Best Service. You get a lot of different loops from all different styles.
These companies put their best foot forward with this disc.

Let me know if you have any questions.

> There are several drum loop libraries for Acid. I own most of them.
> Classic Drum Machines: Syntonic Generator - good synth drum loops, just

> Downtempo Beats - I dont own, so I don't know
> Drum Components: RADS - great samples for building custom drum tracks.

> Drum Tools - don't own, so don't know
> Junkyard Rhythms - don't own (but on it's way). Looks very promising,

> Latin Percussion - pretty good and mostly standard stuff
> Processed Drumkits: Zero-Gravity Beats - My favorite drum library. It
> is not your average cup of tea, but is very good, esp for rock and dance
> R&B Drums: Groove Spectrum - don't own, don't know
> Siggi Baldursson's Drumsugar - don't own, but Siggi's other library, Zero
> Gravity, is so awesome that I would think this one would be as well!
> Street Beats - its ok, but way too little. Not worth it.
> Funky Xtreams I & II - pretty good, but should be 1 CD, not 2!
> World Percussion - Marc Anderson's Dragon Dance - good world music loops
> here.
> Don't forget, most other libraries come with drums (except instrument
