'New Age World & Folk Vol. 1' from Anthology begins this breathtakingly beautiful series of emotive Sounds from producer Gregor Theelen, with 952 Loops, 345 MIDI Files, and 5 OMF Arrangements designed to transport your productions and your listeners to new and uncharted sonic territories.
Professional live performances of piano, violin, brass, percussion, and woodwind instruments complement ambient vocals to make this collection truly unmissable for the producer who craves the authentic sound of World music. MIDI, OMF, and dry/wet files make this an all-in-one solution for even the most demanding producer.
Citing influences from Celtic, Iberian, and Eastern European music traditions, producer Gregor Theelen has further defied genre boundaries by crossing over slightly into Classical Indian and Jazz territories, making this innovative collection the epitome of World music.
Combining smooth & subdued jazzy leads with traditional European folk instrumentation, 'New Age World & Folk Vol 1' creates an entirely unique and spellbinding vibe across all five Construction Kits.
Traditional plucked instruments such as dulcimers are fused with warm upright basses, soft mellow pianos, smokey sultry vocals, expressive soprano sax leads, and delicate strings.
Each of these arrangements is masterfully composed, expertly recorded, and flawlessly engineered for a truly professional sound.
MIDI files are included to expand your possibilities even further, and OMF is provided for producers who want access to the original arrangement in full detail.

MIDI Files Included:
'New Age World & Folk Vol 1' includes MIDI files for the majority of the musical phrases heard in each Kit, allowing you to seamlessly mix your favorite sample libraries and synths with the pre-rendered sounds contained in the pack.
Advantages of MIDI:
While the supplied ACID/Apple Loops content is extremely flexible and powerful, MIDI has the added benefit of allowing you to go to extremes of pitch and tempo beyond which the loops were originally recorded, with no time stretching or pitch shifting artifacts. Furthermore, you can make tweaks to the riffs so they fit perfectly into your existing mixes.
Most of the loops in this product are provided in both dry and wet variations, meaning you can either drag and drop them straight into your DAW complete with FX or apply your own FX mix using plugins or hardware of your choice.
With the included OMF files you can import each audio clip into your sequencer at precisely the right location, allowing you to re-structure the original song, or add your own complimentary instrumentation.
And of course, all loops & samples are 100% Royalty-Free!
