Volume 1: Ambient Bass loops and FX ranging from 60-140 bpm
in a range of keys. There are lots of “synth pad” sounding
tones but played on the bass by journeyman bass player Dean

The G-Force, M2000, Fireworx, and Finalizer were utilized in

the material is very suitable for evocative film music, and
somewhat similar to some of Pink Floyd’s moods. These
are rockish, funky, and jazzy flavored ambient bass lines,
slides, harmonics, and a section of wailin’ plucked hi
notes, all played with the effects on during the sessions rather
than added after, to allow Dean to use the feel of the FX while
Volume 2: Electric Bass loops ranging from 70-135 bpm in a
range of keys. There are a wide variety of playing styles and
techniques on this disc including lots of funky, jazzy, and
rock bass lines, bass chords and harmonies, harmonics, bass
slides, ambient chords and ambient volume FX. All played by
journeyman bass player Dean Cortez.
Volume 3: Slap bass loops and ambient slap bass loops played by
journeyman bass player Dean Cortez. Tempos range from 60-144
bpm and include a wide range of keys. These are super funky
with a bit of rock and jazzy flavors. One folder is ambient
(with FX) and one folder is without FX. The files that have
FX were played with the FX on while playing and not added after
to allow Dean to use the feel of the FX while playing. Each
lick is unique. There is no duplication of one file with and
one without FX.
All these acid loops are completely “acidized” with
the keys set. The tempos and keys are noted in the files and
folders, so you can easily and quickly find the appropriate
tempo style and key to use in your song. Each folder generally
explores one theme with lots of useful variations.
