Your email will be kept confidentially in our system, and used only to keep you updated regarding new loops and sales.

 

Why does the same drum song appear twice, with parentheses in which (time pitch) appears?

 

This means that the drum song underwent time pitch using s.s.l. system algorithms, which allow for speed compression with minimal loss of sound quality.

After working with a number of sound arrangement programs I have found that s.s.l. Soundscape system works best.

Because of the time pitch this type of drum song will be sold for 50% less than the original drum song.

 

Are the loops mastered?

 

No.  At the time of mixing each drum channel was treated with an equalizer, compressor, gate and reverb effect.

The complete drum channel summary was recorded clean to a stereo channel, and was normalized at the last stage of the recording, before being cut into loops, so that you are still able to stylize the sound loop as you wish, and control its dynamic.

At the conclusion of the project, at the arrangement mastering step, the drums will stick to the other instruments and will feel like an integral part of the arrangement.

 

Who should I credit when using the loops?

The loops are meant for anyone dealing with music, and particularly those who use computers to create music.  They are suitable for amateurs as well as professionals; some will be inspired to create a certain arrangement, others will use the loops to compose jingles or television ads, while others might just want to practice an instrument and use them for rhythm.

The most important thing is that you create music, and have fun doing it!
