Producer/composer Rick DiFonzo of Discrete Drums has created a new, download-only, audio loop Website at loopworkshop.com. Rather than selling large drum collections, the focus is on small, individual session packs featuring 50 to 150 loops per package.
Files are 16-bit Apple Loop AIF, with 24-bit Acidized WAV files coming soon. With multiple song segments (intros, verses, choruses, fills, etc.), users can build the arrangement they need and change tempo within most software apps. Apple Loop encoding allows out-of-the-box tempo shift in Logic and Garage Band.
Drum sessions are available in rock, alt rock, pop, country, reggae and R&B styles. EXS-24 Sampler instruments are also available, which can be imported by many other soft samplers. Guitar, bass, orch and synth packs are also available.
