Clocking in at a mighty 12GB when fully installed, this Jam Pack from Apple contains 3000 musical and rhythmic Apple Loops; 40 ethnic instruments covering such exotic delights as sitar, santoor, bagpipes and Native American flutes; and five drum kits featuring percussion from all over the globe. This weird techno-hippy melange actually works rather well, and the sounds are of superb quality throughout. Despite the relatively high price, this library is rather good value, brimming over as it is with top-quality content. It's perfect for GarageBand users looking to expand their sonic palette.
