(Smart Loops | Posted 2007-02-23)
Smart Loops, a leading provider of pro audio loops, samples and web-based recording services, has released SL MultiTracks, a new series of 24-bit multitrack drum loop libraries in ACID WAV format. With SL MultiTracks, computer-based musicians and producers can take complete control of the drum mix by discretely controlling volumes, EQ and FX on individual drum and cymbal loops (kick, snare, hats, overheads, and toms). Each MultiTrack groove and one-shot is provided in two ways: as a set of multitrack drum and cymbal loops, and as a complete stereo mix loop.
With SL MultiTracks Loop Libraries, musicians and producers can:
Adjust volume of individual drums and cymbals
Add separate EQ and FX to different drums
Solo individual drum tracks for precise mixing
Quickly build tracks with stereo mix loops, and then modify later with separate drum and cymbal loops
SL MultiTracks are now available in ACID WAV format, for use in ACID, Audition, Cubase, Digital Performer, GarageBand, Live, Logic, Pro Tools, Reason, SONAR, and other ACID-compatible Mac and PC audio software.
Smart Loops has released the first three SL MultiTracks loop libraries:
Medium Straight Rock 1-- 28 stereo mix loops and one-shots perfect for rock, pop, and country songs; 121 individual track loops for discrete mixing of kick, snare, hats, overheads, and toms; recommended tempo range 74-152 BPM.
Medium-Fast Straight Rock 1-- 36 stereo mix loops and one-shots for faster rock, pop, and country songs; 155 individual track loops for discrete mixing of kick, snare, hats, overheads, and toms; recommended tempo range 113-192 BPM.
Slow Rock/Ballad 1-- 32 stereo mix loops and one-shots for pop, rock, and R&B ballads; 135 individual track loops for discrete mixing of kick, snare, hats, overheads, and toms; recommended tempo range 45-100 BPM. Additional SL MultiTracks titles will be released on an ongoing basis.
