Access Music GmbH
has released a free collection of loop files that can be used by Apple’s GarageBand and Soundtrack applications.
The 46MB archive is being offered royalty-free, and features sounds produced using Access Music’s own Virus C hardware synthesizer. Loops included with the archive include arpeggiator patterns, filter flows and pad sounds — 20 in all, which you add by simply dragging and dropping them into your loop library.
Access Music manufactures software and hardware-based synthesizers; their product line includes the Virus Powercore and Indigo TDM, as well as the Virus C Desktop, Virus KC Keyboard and Virus Indigo 2 Keyboard.
The virus loops for GarageBand and Soundtrack are free, though registering your name and e-mail address is required — the link to download the files will be e-mailed to you once you do.
