2Step Ahead - MacUser UK, Nov 2003 - 4 Stars
Pros - Interesting collection of electronic loops
Cons - Slightly expensive + You may be put off by the title
"Not really knowing what to expect from 2Step Ahead, we were pleasantly surprised to discover a selection of imaginative electronic loops. Comprising 13 Groove Kits split into numerous Beats, Hi-Hat and Kick Snare Loops, plus Synth Bass options, there's plenty of robotic rhythmic content here.
Set against a clutch of groovy clavinet, electric piano and organ riffs, as well as dozens of weird processed loops with a very twitchy edge, and you've got all the makings of a thoroughly modern club classic.
All three CDs are solid collections of professional-sounding loops collected by genre, although mixing and matching loops across genres is a rewarding exercise. The quality of the samples is excellent, and which one you go for depends on your tastes."
A collection of over 800 samples including:
13 Groove Kits
Keys & Synth Riffs
FX & One Shots
Apple Loops are designed for use with Apple's 'GarageBand', 'Soundtrack', 'Logic Pro' and 'Logic Express'. The key and tempo of files can be quickly set to your requirements and files can easily be found thanks to programmed tags. Music has never been faster to create, edit and enjoy. These loops will ensure it also sounds amazing whether you're a novice or pro! Apple Loops can be used simply as Aiff files in many other applications although you won't be able to enjoy all the advanced features available when using one of the programs designed to read Apple Loops.
