New Premium Drum, Bass, and Guitar Loops from Sony

Sony Creative Software, a leading global provider of professional editing and authoring applications, announced the availability of a new trio of Sony Sound Series Premium Collection, Artist Integrated loop library titles for making rock, pop, jazz, R&B, and reggae music.

A Sony Sound Series exclusive, the Artist Integrated (AI) line comprises sets of sample libraries that are designed to work seamlessly with each other. Starting with Steve Ferrone's "Drums from the Big Room," each loop library title builds on top of the other, resulting in tightly focused sets that work together flawlessly to generate original, royalty free music...

Hey DS,

No problem. Glad I could help!

That's what I'm here for... well, that's one of the reasons.

Sony does have some nice loop collections. I have a bunch of them. The only thing I don't like is that most (or maybe all... not sure) of them are just stereo and not multitrack. So when you mix with them, you have to go for a "live" sound to your project because you can't tweak the individual instruments. For example, you can't leave the kick drum dry and just add some reverb to the snare, etc.

Although, I just remembered... if you have the latest version of Melodyne with its DNA technology, it does allow you to break apart stereo files into their individual components. Not sure how well it would work with this though. I believe its main purpose is to break apart individual notes of the same instrument rather than breaking apart whole mixes. I haven't tried it for that.

Scott, you are so much Tha Man!

That's exactly the info I was looking for so I can relate it to drum/perc. loop sets I already have and how they're broken down and arranged.

Your info is super helpful and I'm grateful to you.

Hey DS,

The disc is separated into 4 main folders (actually 5, but the fifth one is just vocal bites with a handful of files of Mick talking about how he plays).

The 4 main folders are Dry Groove and Fills, Groove and Fills (which have some room sound to them), Oneshots, and Percussion. The Dry Grooves and Fills and the Grooves and Fills folders each have subfolders of Blues, Funk, and Rock. So those are the three main styles that you get. Each of those folders has a number of loops separated into different grooves within the associated style and also includes fills so you can piece different performances together. Keep in mind that these are all stereo loops though and not multitrack loops so all the drum instruments are already mixed.

The Oneshots folder gives you a number of oneshot performances of Cowbell, Cymbals, Kick, Snare, and Toms.

And the Percussion folder gives you some more loops, but these contain performances of single percussion instruments: Big Talking Drum, Gong, Hi Talking Drum, Maracas, Taos Drums, Wind Chimes, and some Percussion Mix loops.

Also, yes, they can be used outside of ACID. They come in the WAV format, but also contain the extra meta data information for any program that supports ACID files. So if you load them into SONAR, they should automatically load as Groove clips, which means they will automatically follow the project tempo so you can easily create slow or fast grooves depending on the project.

Here's a review I found online:

Thanks for your response Scott.

I'd like to know if there are a wide variety of beats/styles to choose from.

I'd also like to know if you have to use them in Acid, or are they just plain vanilla .wav files you can use in Sonar?

The samples I listened to are fantastic and it's definitely Mick in all his glory. Deep and rich drums.

Hey DS,

Yep, I've got the Mick Fleetwood loops. What would you like to know?

Here's a link for anyone that doesn't know what we're talking about... http://digifreq.com/?MickFleetwoodDrums

This looks pretty cool.

Is there anyone here who's got (or used) Sony's Mick Fleetwood: Total Drumming?
