looking for new drum loops for cubase. Can anyone recommend any? making pop music
Look at the groove agent expansion sets (also for GA SE). also check time & space website, lots of loop libraries over there.
To name a few: Looploft, Drumdrops
Also most drum samplers have enormous libraries with them see:
Ezdrummer / Superior drummer from Toontrack
Addictive drummer 2
I own BFD and can recommend it, ezdrummer is also nice and cool to have (lot’s of add-ons)
I found a sample pack on the Time and Space website containing 500 wav files and 500 Halion instruments. I am unsure how to place/install the pack to be able to see the pack in the right side mediabay in Cubase 8.5 and to see the instruments in Halion.
For the wav loops, I think the easiest way would be to create a Defined location in mediabay for the folder containing the loops. This way you will see them in mediabay rack. It is not possible to create a thumbnail picture for third party or user content at the moment though.
As for the Halion presets. Do you have Halion 5?
You won’t be able to import the presets into the SE version.
If you can use midi loops:
Also you can buy stuff. They are mapped for a wide range of players.
