(Press Release | Posted 2007-07-27)

Smart Loops has released the SL MultiTracks Volume 2, 3 and 4 Drum Loop libraries in REX2 format for compatibility with even more Mac and PC software samplers and DAW software. Previously the loop collections were only available in ACID WAV and Apple Loops formats. 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).

With SL MultiTracks Loop Libraries, musicians and producers can:

Adjust volume of individual drums and cymbals
