In addition, Sonic and Joytown Productions announced that a Special Edition version of the Studio ProFiles series is now available for a limited time at esoundz.com. Studio ProFiles are multitrack and stereo loop libraries of drums, percussion, and other instruments recorded in professional studios. Studio ProFiles are designed to be opened natively as multitrack sessions/songs into hosts such as ProTools, Cubase, Logic, or loaded into any DAW or sampler.
Studio ProFiles are recorded at 24-bit resolution directly into ProTools HD using high-quality studio equipment such as Neve, SSL, API, Manley, Great River, and more. The titles are designed to deliver ready-to-use, album-quality material and an authentic sound with outstanding character that is inspiring for use with many styles of music.
Studio ProFiles titles are also dedicated to specific music genres and include a diverse and rare offering of loops in the styles of Motown, Soul, Funk, Classic Rock, Progressive Rock, Hard Rock, Punk, Jazz, Big Band, World, Blues, Country, and more. Some titles include a full band of instrument phrases, bass lines, rhythm guitar parts, and solo licks such as Bluegrass and Rockabilly.
Each Studio ProFiles title offers individual control over the elements of the session with multiple directs, overheads, and room mics. Studio ProFiles drum loop titles include the full drum kit or kits used in the session, mapped in popular software sampler formats such as BFD, Kontakt, EXS24, HALion, and more.
