Audio Loops for Sonic Foundry Acid Audio Type Music Content Creation

Painting Music By Numbers... Catch The WAV!

New to Looped Music Creation? Do you have a Project requiring an Audio track? Ever notice the impact of Video when balanced with a great audio track? Need something more than a canned track of ho-hum music? What if you could take parts or loops of a little ditty you created but need a little help in making it tight or just want that layered sound? Audio Loops and Royalty Free BuyOut Music can help you to achieve your goals.

An easy topic if you know the drill - All audio parts music loops, license-free! How that's accomplished is another matter. Can almost anyone create an audio loop or song for publishing to CD, the Web or Video - Yes! Even those of us who consider ourselves musicians will find new ways of writing music with these new tools.

Although I do not care for the name Sonic Foundry chose for their Audio Looping program, after using this program, and others, anyone can quickly see why it's appropriate - Acid Audio pH1- WOW! Once you're into it, you're hooked! And having a blast! You'll see music in a whole new way. And hear rhythms as never before visualized.

In time, we're going to be covering this topic in greater detail. Consider Looped Music just another tool in your arsenal of DAW Audio Tools alongside Tascam's GigaStudio, Propellerhead's Reason and Cakewalk's Sonar.

For the time being, we'll compose a List here of Audio Loop Libraries and further discuss their capabilities. If you have yet to try Music creation from this standpoint, give it time to sink in - You might like what you're able to accomplish the otherwise impossible!

To get started, go to and listen. Buy Acid Pro. Watch for Specials from Guitar Center or Mars Music. They will have Loop Libraries On sale with Acid. And sometimes have their own House Brand Loop Libraries deeply discounted. A great deal right now to get started is the Special Offer - $19.95 buys a CD with 500 Samples + Acid Music & Sound Forge XP - Deal! Keep an eye on for Loop Audio Library Updates and Announcements - Enjoy!
