Many variations of style and tempi are offered. You can blend and combine these different loops into traditional or completely new musical styles. Both 3/2 and 2/3 "clave" patterns are included so that you can construct authentic Latin tracks.

Mixloops offer instant gratification. These consist of Drums and Percussion, or Percussion sections in various combinations. Special "Salsa" mixes have also been made that represent the typical way the percussion instruments are arranged, played, recorded, and mixed in Salsa music today.

The brave of heart can go straight to the individual loops of single instruments or drum kit, and build their own personal combination of Latin grooves.

Each Latin Groove Factory Volume contains a set of multi-Velocity samples of all of the instruments used in hat volume. These samples can be used to play fills that match the grooves, or to create your own new grooves.
