I'm glad to see that loops are available for download from the Sony Creative store. Since a file that someone purchases and downloads doesn't require Sony to manufacture a physical CD, what's the likelihood that Sony will bring back some of the more rare and hard to find loop collections?

I didn't have the money at the time but I sure would like a chance to spice up some of my projects with:

Voices of Native America
"A journey into the heart and soul of indigenous North American culture."

Sounds of Asia:Opium
"Traditional sounds that capture the spirit of Asia."

"Soulful and traditional rhythms from around the globe."

Thanks for listing those. I never knew those exist since I don't use loops very much but those would be real handy to have. I'd buy them as downloads.

Me too, for Voices of Native America. (It's by Douglas Spotted Eagle.)

Royalty free Midi files would also make an interesting addition to the Sony loop content that's offered for sale.

Acid 7 already has some MIDI files in the content disk, along with the DLS synths.

Years ago, Sony (or was it SF?) tried to raise interest in MIDI loop bundles. I registered my interest, but I don't think it ever really took off.

TwiddlyBits sells MIDI files successfully. Perhaps Sony could do a deal?
