Smart Loops has released three new libraries as part of its SL MultiTracks drum loop series: Slow Rock 1, Slow-Medium Triplet Rock 1, and Military Snare Grooves 1. In addition, SL MultiTracks are now available in both Apple Loops and ACID formats, for use with all compatible Mac and PC software.
With SL MultiTracks, computer-based musicians and producers can take complete control of the drum mix by discretely mixing 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.
SL MultiTracks work perfectly with all ACID and Apple Loops-compatible audio software, including ACID, Pro Tools, GarageBand, Cubase, Nuendo, Logic, Reason, Digital Performer, Session, Sequel, Cakewalk SONAR, Live, FL Studio, and other compatible products.
Pricing and Availability:
SL MultiTracks libraries are available for download from www.smartloops.com/products/multitracks/ for an introductory price of $14.99 per library. SL MultiTracks can also be purchased as Volumes for $29 each (three libraries per Volume). All nine SL MultiTracks libraries can also be purchased as a single download bundle for $79.
