Smart Loops Electric Guitars and Bass Guitars libraries each include 950 instrument loops, with support for interchangeable mixing and matching to create thousands of unique tracks. Smart Loops Bass Guitars and Electric Guitars libraries are ideal for Rock, Pop, Funk, and other styles of music, according to Smart Loops, while the Electric Guitars and Bass Guitars loops are designed to work seamlessly with other Smart Loops libraries, including Dry Studio Kit and Percussion Kit. Smart Loops Electric Guitars and Bass Guitars are available for $30 each.

    more loops?

    Not that there's anything wrong with more loop collections, but as a musician I can't help being concerned that loop libraries are going to supplant sound libraries. I get so tired of meeting "padoosahs" who think that they have talent because they have a lot of great-sounding loops and samples that they slap together in some music app. Most of them can't even use a compressor or an eq, let alone play an instrument competently, develop a chord progression, hear the difference between microphones, etc.
