    @Johnnyboy Not all loops are quantised, hi quality loops, even midi ones are not. Or at least not to the grid, they have a feel, a groove, I won’t say they’re not edited at all but they’re not stiff and mechanic.

    I’ll take your word for it Mike. But, all the drum loops I’ve heard, sound perfectly set to grid. But I haven’t heard them all.

    @johnnyboy The ones I’m using are not, they are usually ‘programmed’ with a midi drum, actually played not programmed on a keyboard. I often use them as templates for custom quatization. If you open them in a midi editor you can see the single hits fallin before or behind the beat, depending on the groove. Then there’s probably lots of programmed stuff that is right on the grid, little velocity variations or accents, be it drums or other instruments.

    Taylor,

    Sounding good! I think Minor Fire has the best feel and composition of the three. If it helps, here are two jazz tunes I have accepted by Crucial:

    And here is a 12 song cool jazz album (with a co-writer)we did earlier this year and placed with an exclusive library in the UK:

    Those Crucial links don’t work. “Jazz at the Speakeasy” sounds cool. They have about a dozen of my lounge piano tracks.

    You’re welcome. I don’t really use any vst’s. I’m just not a fan of MIDI. I record real instruments in conjunction with loops and one shots. Always open to collaborations. Right now my mixer which handles AD/DA to and from my computer is in the repair shop, so I’m kind of on a forced vacation. Feel free to reach me privately down the line…
