'1975' is a homage to the Progressive Rock of bands of the mid-1970s. World-Class musicians from The Sound of Merlin deliver this extraordinarily powerful collection of instrumental loops and samples. These live performances reflect an inherently deep understanding and knowledge of the musical aesthetics of the time.

'1975' is the second release from Producer Loops and The Sound of Merlin, where the musical atmosphere of a year is the main inspiration. In the early 70s, most progressive rock albums were based on long 10+ minute compositions. These arrangements included long and impressive instrumental solos, which showed off the musician's skills. Half way through the seventies, it seemed that the personal emotion of the performer/soloist took the limelight further, with the guitar coming to the forefront. The music became more condensed and found a larger audience.

This 5.30 minutes track has 6 distinct sections which is typical for 70s Progressive Rock. With this in mind, this track includes a 5 minute solo for lead guitarist, Peter Tiehuis. All of these solos are included when you buy this pack along with the rest of the arrangement.

Featuring audio loops in various formats, as well as individual MIDI files and an OMF mix, '1975' is a superb collection of Progressive Rock elements to re-arrange in endless ways. This sensational product has been performed, recorded and produced to perfection and it includes everything heard in the demo track.

The Sound of Merlin:

Lead Guitar: Peter Tiehuis
Guitars and synthesizers: John van der Lugt
Drums: Sander de Groot
Piano, Hammond and Bass: Gregor Theelen

OMF format (Open Media Format) allows you to import a complete arrangement of audio loops into virtually any sequencer. Once loaded, you will see all parts on screen exactly as originally seen when exported, with chunks of audio data on separate tracks, all named by instrument. This format will allow you complete flexibility when re-mixing the arrangement.

By muting or soloing tracks while looping a specific section you will soon find the exact combination of instruments you want to use for your project. Keep in mind that it might be best to use the same file-naming system when exporting your favourite sections as you may want to add or change things at a later point in your creative process.

The OMF is great to study '1975' in a multi track studio environment. The drums are included as stems, which gives the user the possibility to make their own loops. It's also great to experiment with mixing drums within a musical context. One has also the opportunity to solo each single track just to listen to how each performer "plays" in a Progressive Rock arrangement
