When The Gipsy Kings invaded the airwaves in the late 1980s, the sound of Southern French and Catalan Gypsy Rumba took the world by storm. Millions of fans discovered centuries of tradition that had taken birth in the small communities of Arles and Montpellier, France. French-American producer Josquin des Pres grew up in the south of France, the epicenter of this now popular music genre, originally popularized by legendaries Jose Reyes and Manitas de Plata. Years later their sons, the Reyes, and their cousins, the Baliardos, would become The Gipsy Kings.

This collection produced by Josquin des Pres and David Maldonado (a student of legendary Spanish guitarist Pepe Romero) captures the essence, spirit, and passion of Southern French and Catalan Gypsy music. Maldonado's expert guitar work is joined by Danny Barragan on drums, Josquin Des Pres on bass, Allan Phillips on keyboards, Tommy Aros on percussion, and Miki Komatsubara and Diego Mondragon on violin.

These 12 compositions are created in a complete song format with intros, verses, choruses, bridges, outros, and ending notes allowing you to create your own personal version and mix.

Gypsy Fiesta is the ideal toolbox for soundtrack composers, songwriters, producers, and DJs, for use either as a springboard for your own passionate Gypsy-influenced masterpieces or to add a splash of Gypsy passion to your already existing music tracks.

Gypsy Fiesta has been formatted in the most widely-used formats: Apple Loops, Acidized WAV, and REX files, making it usable in virtually every piece of software and hardware in use on the market today. In addition this library comes fully formatted for Kontakt as part of the Big Fish Audio KLI 3.0 Series which transforms this loop library into a truly moldable and musical writing instrument. For more information on just how functional the KLI format is please see the KLI overview video here: KLI OVERVIEW


Multi Format

Gypsy Fiesta has been formatted in all the industry standard file types: Apple Loops, Acidized WAV and REX. Every piece of commonly used hardware and software will be compatible with at least one of these fully developed and usable formats.

Each audio file has been expertly cut and edited to loop perfectly, and has been recorded in the highest quality 24-bit rate to ensure absolutely top quality end results.

If you work primarily with Apple products, be sure to utilize the extra loop tagging functionality in Garageband and Apple Logic as well as Apple's proprietary time stretching and pitch bending algorithms.

If you're working inside Protools, Cubase, Fruity Loops, Ableton Live, Sony ACID, or any other DAW on the market, the Acidized WAV files are the perfect fit for time stretching and pitch bending capabilities. The Acidized WAV files can also be used as standard WAV files in almost any music tool in production today.

Beat-makers and artists who love sampled melodic slices can take advantage of our REX/RMX format that utilizes all the powerful programming found in Stylus RMX and the Dr. Octo REX player in Propellerheads Reason.

KLI 3.0 Series

The KLI 3.0 Series allows you to quickly arrange and mix tracks in our Kit Combo Patches and make completely original drum tracks with our custom drum patches that include both multi-track drum loops and one-shot samples.

Libraries in the KLI Series (Kontakt Loop Interface) include a custom interface for tweaking loops and sounds beyond what was previously possible. Each loop is given its own patch, and can be extensively edited by manipulating the various slices of the loop. In addition, groups of loops that play together have been given their own patch as well, making it easy to quickly arrange and mix loops on the fly. Each patch will automatically sync with your DAW's host tempo, making integration with your production seamless.


Kit Combos - Each patch contains all the loops from the main body of the kit mapped by track to create quick and easy arrangements. Modulation Keys are located in the C0-C1 octave range, loops start at C2 on the keyboard.
