Real Instruments - Real Performances!
The Performance Loops series of loop & sample CDs feature real performances from professional musicians and session players, playing real instruments!
Loops and samples on the Performance Loops series are arranged by performances. We take actual recordings from real song performances and chop them up into as many different loops, variations, fills, and hits as possible. The result is that you get more than enough loops, variations, fills, and hits to recreate a realistic performance that nobody would ever know came from a loop CD.
Simply chain together the loops, variations, fills, and hits in the desired order to fit your song. Or, if you are looking for that "looped" sound, you'll have plenty of variations to choose from to find the perfect loop for your song.
All loops and samples on the Wave file format CD-ROMs have the ACID properties pre-defined for perfecting looping with ACID, Sonar, Cool Edit Pro / Adobe Audition, Ableton Live, and any other program that can read ACID loop properties (such as the upcoming release of Cubase 3). The Greg Adams' Big Band Brass disc was released on DVD-ROM with both ACIDized Wave format and Apple Loop Format (AIFF) files for each of the over 4600 loops and samples on the same disc!
Performance Loops products have received many great reviews. The newest product, Greg Adams' Big Band Brass, has blown away all of the other Performance Loops products in sales in its first year, and received several great reviews in trade magazines and lots of publicity on the net. It has also been a top 40 hot seller for Big Fish Audio for well over a year now.
The Performance Loops Acoustic Guitars CD-ROM has received three great reviews from top industry magazines, and was a top 40 hot seller for Big Fish Audio for over a year. Performance Loops Drums Volume 2 also received a great review from Electronic Musician when it was released, and was also a top 40 hot seller for Big Fish Audio for over a year. The Scott Rockenfield Queensryche Drums loop and sample set got off to a great start with a great review from Sound On Sound magazine. Scott's loops are much more versatile than you might imagine and actually work well in a wide variety of musical styles... just check out some of the comments we have received from users!
