Smart Loops, a developer of ACID-format, loop-based music content and creation tools, announced the availability of its first collection of free loops to the public.

A wide variety of drum, percussion, electric guitar and bass guitar loops may be downloaded by visiting The loops have been selected from Smart Loops' retail titles Dry Studio Kit, Percussion Kit, Bass Guitars and Electric Guitars. The free loops contain ACID-compatible loops optimized for use in programs that allow users to change the tempo and pitch of their audio, including Cakewalk’s Sonar, Home Studio 2002, Project5, Plasma, Music Creator and Guitar Tracks Pro products, as well as all Sonic Foundry ACID programs. Because the files are provided in .WAV format, virtually any PC or Mac music recording or playback software—such as Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic Audio, Phrazer, Unity, Digital Performer, Live and n-Track—can also use the loops.

Free loops are offered in rock, pop, Latin, country, funk, blues and hard rock styles with grooves in both straight and swing feels. Most of the loops are offered in dry, unprocessed form so that users can add effects and customize the grooves to their individual sound. Smart Loops will add more free loops in the future, including selections from upcoming, unreleased titles.

Smart Loops president and founder, Frank Basile, said, “While there are a number of free loops available on the Internet, few are of professional quality.  We’re proud to offer a selection of free, high-quality Acidized loops on our site. We invite musicians of all levels to use our loops to inspire new songs or breathe life into their existing material.”
