    We found these samples a delight to use, and particularly impressive are the nylon-strung guitar loops, which are immaculately played and sound crisp and clear.

    Even if you've never considered using South American samples in your music before, these are worth checking out, as they're the kind of loops that could easily be used outside of their original genre to create interesting, original sounds within any style of music.
