The folks at Bitshift Audio are offering 40MB of free loops for use with Apple’s recently released GarageBand music software. “Our resident beat programmer, Art Gillespie (aka bitshift), is so excited about GarageBand and the new Apple Loops file format that he put together this collection of free electro/breakbeat drum and synth loops from his forthcoming Apple Loops CD ‘bitshift’s bangin’ beats’ for everyone to download for free,” notes the Web site.
