I\'m just in the process of buying \"Fingerstyles\" from Ilio \'cause I need some realistic fingerpicking goodies. Not really related to loops but I did want to bring up the fact that I think they put out great stuff. They are very consistant in their quality and sound, I would reccomend any of their house brand CD\'s or the Spectrasonic ones.
Liquid grooves sounds great too, I would reccomend the Groove Control disks \'cause they can come in handy if you need to tempo match some stuff!
The only problem with the Persing stuff is that because it\'s generally so top notch you tend to hear it everywhere. The Groove Control stuff with Metamorphosis is great for adding flexibility. I think Stylus(his new loop soft synth) has a large pool of samples to work with so you can get a lot of variety out of it as well.
All I can say about DR2 and Metamorphosis is GREAT STUFF! DR2 has fantastic sounds for ambient fills and other great textures. Check out the ambient metals patches. Very cool [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
The only downside to DR1 and DR2 is that you hear it everywhere nowadays, but nonetheless I still love these libraries and for demos they are great to use.
For the price, Metamorphosis is a steal. The options are endless. You can use any loop at whatever tempo you\'d like via groove control or mix any loop within the library with another loop.
Another plus is that all the loops loop perfectly in your sequencer. You also get the individual hits from each loop in the groove control menu.
I think you will be very pleased with these 2 libraries [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
