Just released was the first of hopefully several loop library
CD's by Sony Digital Media (formerly Sonic Foundry) that features exclusively Alex playing killer
loops on the doumbek, rik, djembe, electronic kit, and various
other percussion goodies. Now just about anyone will be able to
use samples of Alex's blistering drumming in their own tracks!

For those who do not know, Sonic Foundry--which was recently aqcuired bu Sony--is the world's largest
producer of music production software for the PC and puts out
such industry standard products as ACID, Sound Forge, and Vegas
Video. Their loop libraries contain thousands of samples that
can be used by almost any computer or sampler, but are optimized
for use with ACID, a program that allows users to create entire
songs with loops that automatically snap themselves into the proper
pitch and tempo used in the current song. It allows virtually
anyone with basic computer skills to produce professional sounding
music! For more information, check out Sony Digital Media's website.
