Salsa Percussion Loops is a genre-authentic audiophile sound library for SampleTank 4 in our new series of multitrack audio loops libraries. Created by acclaimed Cuban Producer and Musician Alex Rivas, each preset contains the full mix on note C1 with the stems of each track provided chromatically going up the keyboard.
The best SampleTank effects from T-RackS, AmpliTube and Syntronik are assigned so that the user can instantly filter, EQ and compress each preset to taste using the SampleTank macro controls. An additional resonant low pass filter is assigned to the mod wheel for real-time performance.
Salsa Percussion Loops gives you the real-world tools you need for any part of the arrangement of a salsa song. You get all the percussion instruments necessary to make a salsa song from beginning to the end: timbales, congas, timbale with kick and snare, bongo, multiple types of hand bells and guiros. Intro, Verse, Cascaras, Fill, Chorus, Pre-Chorus, Cha-Cha and Cuban Style Bomba are all waiting for you.
Salsa Percussion Loops also includes a playable “Salsa Percussion Kit” preset with 59 different percussion timbres that lets you play on top of the loops, or use them to build your own Latin percussion tracks from scratch. All in all, you get a total of 155 presets for SampleTank 4.

Producer Alex Rivas says about the library, “After years of struggling to find an authentic sounding salsa library, I decided to create my own with a modern approach and inspired by current salsa artists. I carefully chose the musicians, instruments and gear to make this project come to life, so now you, too, can make your own genuine salsa songs.”
Authenticity is key to Salsa Percussion Loops. The recorded musicians are straight from Cuba, Venezuela and Colombia. These three countries have one thing in common: They live and breathe salsa music. Alex and his team recorded the most common rhythms and parts of a salsa song, so you are covered no matter what you need. And as a Cuban native, salsa music is in Producer Alex Rivas’ blood, and he knows you will feel it, too.
Looking for an authentic and modern salsa percussion library? Salsa Percussion Loops is all you need to create a salsa song from beginning to end. Audiophile 24-bit recordings using top studio gear from Neve, API, Avalon, Universal Audio, AKG, Mojave and more.

Additional presets using the SampleTank PSTS engine are provided to automatically sync to any host tempo.
