With Live Sessions, Loop Loft founder and session ace (and drummer on a majority of the Loop Loft releases), Ryan Gruss, is now available to record multitrack drums for whatever your project needs.

The Art of Brushes Vol 2, sample pack by The Loop Loft

The Loop Loft The Art of Brushes Vol 2

The Loop Loft has announced the release of The Art of Brushes Vol 2, a new collection of drum loops.

A collection of loops and samples focused entirely on brushes, this second volume contains over twice as many files as the original, giving you the sounds and grooves you need to produce authentic drum tracks in a wide range of styles.

From folk, to Americana, to bebop, to electronica, the depth and airiness of the brushes combined with the warmth and timbre of vintage drums and hand-hammered cymbals provide the perfect foundation for even the most discerning producer and songwriter who needs truly professional sounding (and feeling) drum tracks.

The Art of Brushes Vol 2 features

  • Includes 135 loops and 82 samples.
  • Tempo Range: 80-212 BPM.
  • 100% Royalty Free.
  • High quality 24-bit/48 kHz audio.
  • Available formats: WAV, REX2 and AIFF (Apple Loops).
  • Sets included: 80_FatAndLoose, 86_DarkAndFunky, 90_WarmAndWide, 120_TightAndRingy, 180_InThreeOrSix, 212_BeAndBop.

The Art of Brushes Vol 2 is available to purchase as a download for $24.95 USD.

Short links for March 2nd, 2010

Some interesting things I found recently:

# cl516: ProLoop iPhone App by Trapcode

Calvin Cardioid on ProLoop for iPhone:

I've been searching a long time for something like this. It's not on OSX, and it's not an audiounit plugin. It's called ProLoop and I got it for $5 on the iTunes store. It's a very hands-on loop player capable of handling 6 loops at a time. My usual audio clips didn't feel like it was fully explaining what's going on, so be sure to check out the video above for a slightly more in-depth look.

# Fractions of a Second: An Olympic Musical – Interactive Graphic

NYTimes has a cool auralization of crossing the Olympic finish line:

At the Olympics, the blink of an eye can be all that separates the gold medalist from the 10th-place finisher. In some events, this is obvious. But in others, with athletes racing one by one, the closeness of the race is harder to perceive.

TheBlackBox

# TheBlackBox: Release v2.0 – Propeller HSS FX/Sequencer with Digital Audio SPDIF output

The Propeller BlackBox Audio Sequencer is a device for audio waveform creation and a 32 step sequencer.

BlackBox Audio Sequencer features

  • Live fx mode to allow direct output of the current waveform set by 12 different potentiometers.
  • The sequencer allows the fx to be loaded into any one of 32 steps in the sequencer.
  • SPDIF audio output or analog output via a switch (not both at the same time).
  • analog output to a monitor(at the same time as spdif/analog output above (headphones or studio speakers) to allow auditioning before outputting live.
  • 3 encoders that allow – BPM, main volume, and BPM jumps(1/3, 1/2, 1/4, 3/4, 2/3) and a switch for jump direction. (main volume and bpm jump programming not complete yet).
  • BlackBox to BlackBox CLOCK sync, input rca, output rca.(serial @ 150Kbps, works over 1 foot rca cable) (this is so many of these devices can be connected to one main BEAT CLOCK MASTER.).
  • 32 LEDS are used as sequencer step indication, ALONG with using the 32 LEDS as buttons to load waveform.
  • 2 leds that start/stop the sequencer and live fx waveform.
  • fully open source that uses the HSS code to generate the audio.

# Gruss Loops Vol X is Here!

Ryan releases another batch of cool drum loops.

Another 1st of the month brings us another set of Gruss Loops. Volume X features four different loop sets with over 25 different groove and fill variations in each style and tempo. A mix of world, funk, latin and r&b loops, Volume X is a must-have for any well-rounded loop collection.

Osmos

# Exclusive Free Soundtrack: Osmos, Featuring Gas, Julien Neto, Loscil, High Skies

Peter Kirn at Create Digital Music writes:

The independent game Osmos won our hearts in 2009, with transcendent, meditative gameplay built on simulated particle physics, starting as a floating wonderland and ending with some deliciously punishing difficulty. But it’s the soundtrack that sealed the deal: ambient-tinged work by artists like Gas 0095, Julien Neto, Loscil, and High Skies helped us imagine an unseen, microscopic (or perhaps macroscopic) world. Their sonic craft is a great example of what digital music can be. Now, I’m pleased to offer a lot of that music for your listening pleasure, for free. It’s one of the rare game soundtracks you’d want to hear even after having heard it on repeat while solving some of the title’s trickier puzzles. A huge thanks to the artists, whose generosity made this compilation possible – check out their work if you haven’t already.
