I can’t believe It’s been seven years since I produced Dirty Disco for Sony Creative Software.
Dirty Disco by Sony Creative Software
The reemergence of disco as a post-punk electronica crossover has sprouted a sound built on super-compressed synths, abrasive drums, punk guitars, and svelte orchestration. This hybrid twist of hardnosed breakbeat and flashy house is masterfully showcased on Dirty Disco: Nouveau Breakbeat, a new royalty-free sample collection from veteran producer and DJ Jason Donnelly. Author of Afterhours EDM, Donnelly knows a thing or two about crafting club anthems that seethe with vintage synths, guitars, and the phattest drum modules. Sixteen session folders feature over 300 loops and samples cut with laser precision, ready to drop into your ACID software workhorse. No ACID? No problem. Everything on Dirty Disco is cross-platform and ready to rock with any application that supports .wav files. So fire up that mirror ball and change out the batteries in your distortion pedals. It’s gonna be a long night.

ACID Loops is a technology used with the music making software originally from Sonic Foundry called ACID. Created in 1998, it refers to the repetition, and transposition of sound clips, to form a song. The ACID Pro program is now owned and distributed by Sony, and is on version 7. Sony also now sells a line of Acidized loop sample cds to be used with ACID, as do many third party companies.
Similar technology was added to Cakewalk’s Sonar (calling it “Groove Clips”) and Cubase (calling it Audio Warp). Although the phrase “acid loops” technically is only associated with Sonic Foundry, some people use the term to refer to the technique even when used with other software packages.
Acidized loops contain tempo and key information, so that ACID can properly time stretch them when pitch shifted.
