Rare Grooves transfers the sound of the early 70s into the next millennial. The songs cover everything from Soul to Rock and early Funk.

Anyone who still thinks loop libraries are only for boring producers without their own inspiration is definitely wrong. If anything, Rare Grooves is a creativity package that is open for song and sound experiments of any kind.

The library is named "Rare" with good reason. Therefore, we will for the first time here on releasetime give our Top Product Award to a construction kit loop library.
