Who is this product for?

This  product is not just an immensely useful and inspirational tool for  soundtrack and film composers, it goes far beyond this and  is useful for producers of all styles.  For example, anyone who wants to add some Arabian flavours to their  music will find great ideas here. Hip hop producers and house producers  can

import the OMF files into their favorite DAW or sequencer, find the hottest spot, set the locators and start  working on a beat. Ambient artists may want to loop a woodwind section,  pitch it down at least 2 octaves and start mixing this with  time-stretched double bass notes. The possibilities are limited only by  your own imagination.

Using the MIDI files:

Want to  use the exact notes of a phrase while adding some patches from your  favourite synth? No problem. Thanks to our clear file-naming system you  won't need more than a couple of seconds to locate and import the MIDI  file representing the notes of your favourite phrase. Output  the MIDI loop through your own synth, and come up with some incredible new ideas.

About using the OMF files:

OMF  format (Open Media Format) allows you to import a complete arrangement  of audio loops into virtually any sequencer. Once loaded,   you will see all parts on screen exactly as originally seen when  exported, with chunks of audio data on separate tracks, all named by  instrument. This format will allow you complete flexibility when  re-mixing the arrangements.

Dry loops were used when building the  OMF files so feel free to add your own reverb and/or favourite FX to a  phrase, a loop or a fully orchestrated fragment. All clips (phrases,  loops) carry the same name as the dry and wet loops  as well as the MIDI loops which you will find in the folder structure.

By  muting or soloing tracks while looping a specific section you will soon  find the exact combination of instruments you want to use  for your project. Keep in mind that it might be best to use the same  file-naming system when exporting your favourite  sections as you may want to add or change things at a later point in  your creative proces. Please note, the OMF files sum up all volumes of  the individual tracks while all faders are set  to 0 db. Therefore, please set the master fader to around -7 db to avoid clipping and take it from there.

List of Sequencers with OMF Import:

Here  is a list of all sequencers that will import the full arrangements of  these kits in audio format. When you import these arrangements  you will be able to see them in your sequencer as if you had recorded them yourself:

• Ableton Live!

• AudioDesk

• Cubase

• Digital Performer

• Logic Pro

• Logic Studio

• Nuendo

• Pro Tools

• Pyramix

• Sadie

• Samplitude

• Sonar

• Soundtrack Pro

Using these OMF arrangements you will be able to (i) Re-arrange them as desired  (ii) Learn how this music was put together.

Arabian tonality:

Since  our Symphonic Series is in the first place a Western orchestral project  mainly containing Western instruments we decided not  to use micro tuning to enhance  the Arabian feel. Nevertheless you will hear our strings sections using  some mouth-watering portamentos and glissandi to get there anyway. Not  using exotic tunings will  help you staying "in tune" with your own musical idiom (and other loops  in your project) while getting inspired with the content we're offering you.

Keys Used:

All  five kits are based on authentic keys. As Arabian music is mainly  focused on melody compared to harmony it's quite easy to add  your own melodical ideas translated into notes  as long as you use the notes belonging to the specified key. It will  hardly ever clash if you would follow this golden rule. Please note that  Google will  bring you to detailed information on the keys we have been using.

Here's a comprehensive list of the Keys  used:

• Kit 1: Kashba Dream = C Phrygian: C, D-flat, E-flat, F, G, A-flat, B-flat

• Kit 2: The Djinn = C Octatonic: C, D, E-flat, F, G-flat, A-flat, A, B

• Kit 3: Arabian Groove = E Double Harmonic: E, F, G, A, B, C, D-sharp

• Kit 4: Beaulereau Arabesque = G Gypsy: G, A, B-flat, C-sharp, D, E, F

• Kit 5: Arabian Nights = C Arabian: C, D-flat, E, F, G, A-flat, B

About the Symphonic Series:

The "Symphonic Series" paves the way for producers and composers of all standards to incorporate highly innovative   and natural-sounding orchestral loops into their work. This series will  eventually cover a multitude of different orchestral styles, and is  focused on "authenticity". Watch this space as we have many more  exciting titles coming soon...


• 5 kits containing audio loops and MIDI loops representing musical phrases in the classical cartoons genre.

•  All audio loops are dry (no FX) and the same loops are also available  with reverb (tail loops). All in 24-bit, 44.1 kHz sample rate.

• 5 OMF files  containing the exact arrangements of the tracks are provided,  so you can import the full arrangements into all sequencers which  support this format. These files are great to be used as reference files  and to export small sections you pick out yourself while having  the opportunity to make your own mix before you start exporting. This  format is also great for DJ's and sound designers.

• All loops are royalty-free to those who have purchased the product. "Commercial use" of the 5 original compositions "exactly   as they are in the demos" is forbidden though. One has to make "new  music" using our loops to act in accordance with our license agreement.

Wet/Dry Loops:

Wet and dry versions of each loop are included so you can choose whether you want to work with the   processed or unprocessed loops. If you want to add your own FX, no  problem, simply load up the "dry" loop and get processing! Key and tempo  have been tagged into filenames for ease-of-use.

Symphonic Series Vol 2: Arabian Adventures  1 is available for instant download exclusively at ProducerLoops.com for £49.95 / 59,75 EUR / $66.40 USD. More information is available at: http://www.producerloops.com
