  5. Main Loop Mix (An extended track of just the main rhythmic song section, without the cello melody, allowing for ease of looping/extending. More info below.) Full track 0:42 / Looping segment 0:14-0:26 (0:12 seconds)

Each variation is its own separate file, included as both a full resolution WAV as well as a high quality MP3.

So What’s a Loop Mix?

Loop mixes are tracks specially optimized for ease of extending and looping. Each loop mix contains a beginning, middle, and ending variation of the loop, played seamlessly together:

  1. The beginning loop section provides you a clean, natural start to the music.
  2. The middle section is seamlessly loopable.
  3. The ending loop section has a clean, final ending to the music, providing the ability to create a complete sounding track with the flexibility and length you need!

The WAV audio file of each loop mix contains embedded markers at the loop points, making it especially easy to edit and extract each section and loop it as needed. Or you can simply use the full track as is on it’s own!

Feel free to contact me after purchase if you need any assistance using or separating the loop mix files.
