What are Acid Loops ?

Music Loops are little sniplets of music that line up perfectly to be looped at any length. You select, for instance, a drum loop on one track of your music editing program, a bass track on the next, a couple more guitar and keyboard tracks and voila...you created a song. Very often, loops are used in combination with MIDI tracks or recorded (vocal) tracks to make a song rather than creating the entire song from loops. These loops are generally refered to as 'Acid Loops' since Acid is the most commonly used program that uses loops but there are many other programs that you can use our loops with like Cubase, Logic, Ableton, Garageband and many others.
All of our Music Loops are recorded in digital quality with experienced studio musicians and using loops instead of hiring a session player can be very cost effective when producing music.

What program can I use these loops with ?

Obviously, our loops work perfectly with the Acid Program. Acid automatically adjusts loops of different speeds to work perfectly together and you can even change the key of the loop to match the rest of your music with very pleasing results. However, there are many other programs for the PC or Mac that you can use our loops with like Cubase, Sonar, Cakewalk Audio, Reason, Emagic's Logic Audio, Fruityloops, Ableton Live, Garageband and many others.

Can I use these loops on a Mac (Garageband, Logic, Cubase) ?

All of our Loops CDs contain PC Loops as well as Apple Loops for Mac Users. Our Apple loops are 100% compatible with Apple's Garageband as well as many other Apple programs such as Cubase, Ableton Live, Protools, Logic Audio and many, many more. In short, our loops make a great and affordable addition to your Garageband Loops Library. You will find tips on importing the loops into Garageband HERE!

What is Acid and where can I download a free copy ?

Acid is the #1 loops based music creation program and its current version has many built in effects, filters and more. Unfortunately, the program is not cheap. But here's the good news: You can download a FREE VERSION of Acid from their web site. This version is not a demo, it will not expire nor does it offer only limited features. It's a full version. The only restriction is that it only has 10 tracks (actually quite sufficient for many compositions) You can download Acid Xpress HERE!
We compiled a whole list of FREE audio programs that you can download. You may find some more useful audio and music stuff HERE!

Can I use these loops in my songs without paying royalties or credit ?

Our Music Loops are licensed to you for royalty free use when you purchase them from us. Of course, you are not allowed to re-sell our loops as they are, they have to be used in your original work. You don't have to list us in your credits either but of course we'd appreciate it if you do mention us and give us credit on your album's liner notes if you use our loops.

How do I use Music Loops on a Web Site ?

Loops are a great way to add music to a web site without creating huge files. A program like Flash allows you to import WAV files and then loop them dozens of times when loaded. Of course, a single drum or bass loop won't sound all that impressive so you will want to create a short looping Mini Composition for Web Design Use. Check out www.flashmusictracks.com for samples of pre-made, ready to use Flash Music loops.
