Groove Monkee Apple Loops

Posted on November 22, 2013 by Russ Cannizzo

We’ve converted some of our midi drum loop packs into “Green” Apple Loop format.

What are “Green” Apple loops? Unlike “blue” loops, they allow you to edit the underlying midi data so they’re much more flexible. You also have much more control because you choose the drums sounds and effects. At this time, the Logic and Garage Band loop browsers don’t show midi loops so we’ve converted some popular packs into apple loop format.

Here’s an overview our green Apple loops.

Rock Essentials 1 - Apple Loops featuring 7 essential feels: Ballad, 8ths, 16ths, Quarter Driving, Half-Time, Floor Tom and “4 on the floor”. This pack was recorded for those needing simple, commonly used rock and pop rock grooves and fills. Includes extra drum fills arranged by tempo and type (build, flam, toms, snare rolls)! All loops played by a professional studio drummer.

Rock 2 - 700 Apple loops for ballads and softer rock/pop music played by a professional studio drummer. The loops arranged into song format with intro, verse, chorus, bridge and outro sections. This is for the lighter side of rock featuring a lighter touch and more spacious fills. Includes extra drum fills. Time signatures: 3/4, 6/8 and 4/4.

Rock 3 - Apple Loops for contemporary rock music played by a professional studio drummer. These loops are arranged as song format with intro, verse, chorus, bridge, fills and outro sections. Includes extra drum fills.

Power Rock - Apple Loops for modern hard rock or alternative rock played by a professional studio drummer. The loops are arranged into song format with intro, verse, chorus, bridge and outro sections. Includes extra drum fills. These loops are suitable for heavier styles of modern rock music: alternative, grunge, post-grunge, alternative metal, nu metal, etc. Whatever you call it, it’s LOUD and HEAVY!!

Free Green Apple Loops: There are several free sets of free green Apple loops available on our Facebook page.

Enjoy and ROCK ON!!!
