PowerFX has announced the release of World Loop Spice Rack, a sample title which includes 1,220 melodic and rhythmic loops and riffs of authentic ethnic instruments from China, India, Middle East, Australia, and Africa.
"Much of contemporary urban and electronica productions contain elements of world music, and producers are constantly on the lookout for new sounds from around the globe" states PowerFX CEO Bil Bryant, "here we have recorded rarer instruments that have not been sampled much like the Afghani Rebab or Sarod from India, which both have a stunning natural reverb sound due to the construction of the metal finger board and sympathetic strings or the Pipa which just reeks of soothing Chinese court music. These loops are faithful recordings of indigenous music styles played by masters to obtain and retain the unique sound characteristics of these cultural treasures".
The World Loop Spice Rack is a comprehensive royalty free sample collection of ACIDized wav files that are labeled with BPM and key information for easy usability. Over 50 different instruments have been recorded for World Loop Spice Rack with a balance between rhythmic and melodic instruments to use as global groove foundations or exotic melodic lashings.
World Loop Spice Rack is 890MB of material and the download is 498MB compressed. You can hear a demo, get a complete listing of instruments, or download the collection at www.powerfx.com for $79.
