I know it has been quiet around here, I've been trying to revive this blog so I will start to post more in the future. I found this article on the Apple Loops economy from German Magazine PC Welt quite interesting. It argues that:
The release of Apple Computer Inc.'s GarageBand brought the art of music creation to the masses. The consumer-friendly application also opened up business opportunities for new and long-time music loop creators looking to expand their business.
It gives good insight into the business and how these loops are made. Interesting stuff. Besides pointing out free loops, I'm also looking into reviewing commercial loop packages.
