Synth loops - Rhythm & Grooves Volume 2 contains rhythmic
synth loops. There are some are individual instrument loops
and also some multi instrument arrangements. These acid loops
contain mostly instrument sounds that only synthesizers can
produce like pads or hybrid instruments, but there are also
some traditional drums, bass, and guitar included within some
of the multi instrument mixes. The tempos range from 90-132
bpm. The styles range from film to fusion, to funk, to alt
rock, to smooth jazz, and a bit of country, but always a bit
out of the ordinary.
All of these synth loops are completely 'acidized' acid
loops. The tempos and keys are noted in the files and folders,
so you can easily and quickly find the appropriate tempo, key
and style to use in your song. Each folder generally explores
one theme with lots of useful variations.
There are 560 acid loops in 18 folders. There are 626 MB on
the 24 bit version, and 421 MB on the 16 bit version.
I've tried to describe the disc honestly and accurately, without the usual hype, to give you the basic idea of what's on the disc, but I encourage you to listen to some of the loop samples and demo songs to see if you like the feel of the musicianship.
This is an excerpt from a song with a lot of laughter. The laughter has been
removed so that the synth parts (including what sounds like a guitar) can be
heard more clearly. The synth rhythms are from this disc and Rhythm & Grooves
Vol 1. The bass comes from Dean Cortez Vol 3 Slap Bass. The drums are from Drum Language Vol 1. If you'd like to hear the whole song it's on the demo songs page.
