Title: 24/16bit Downloadable Loop Packs
Post by: James Johnson on March 21, 2008, 05:41:20 AM
I know many of you are musicians as well as listeners and wanted to let ya'll know that I've begun to add ACIDized loops to the STORE area of my site.

Not sure if any of you know, but I've been creating,editing and finalizing ACID loops for "Sonic Foundry" now Sony Creative Software for the past 9 years and counting. The loops I'll be offering will span a wide range of genres, but always be centralized in the roots of ambient / cinematic music. The loops will be offered in sets of 10 containing BOTH 16 & 24bit versions within each set.

This is straight along the lines of the work I do for Saul Stokes and his http://www.blipdrums.com (http://www.blipdrums.com) portal. Only difference being that these loops will be much less "percussion" based and more focused on the melodic side. I have 3 sets available now and will be adding more over the weekend.

thanks Loren..

Actually ACID loops work just fine in Apple's product. The main programmer and developer for Apple's product is the guy that originally helped design ACID....ACID is still the original..:)

I had great hope for BeOS back in the 1990s, what are you using that for these days James? I didn't know it was still around.

I liked many things about BeOS but it was one of those operating systems that never caught on to enough of a degree that any decent apps were available for it.

And I'm not as completely anti-Windows as I might seem sometimes -- don't get me wrong, Windows DOES suck, but it's also so ubiquitous as to have its uses in some areas -- but it's fun to stir the pot once in a while.  Also I agree that Win 2k pro is the best version of Windows there has ever been.

A bit off-topic, but I have to say I really enjoy your music James, especially your piano playing.  I'd only heard "Forgotten Places" and I was wondering if you'd recorded any more albums....
then I visited your site. hahaha.  You have a lot of albums!  I'm previewing a lot of them right now, enjoying your sounds.

Cheers,

Mirko
