    Latin Afro 2 is an exotic and soulful collection that’s packed with plenty of Latin flavour, with 321 instrument loops in your choice of Wav+Rex2 or Apple Loops+Rex2 formats. The pack is made up of 6 extended construction kits, broken down into folders of deep synth and electric bass, upbeat live drums, music loops, and lively percussion, plus a small handful of synth loops.

    The drum and percussion grooves have a great vibe and energy, with plenty of variations for each style to aid in building a longer arrangement. However, the drum sound itself is quite raw and the playing is a little loose in places, which gives it a certain liveliness, but may not suit more quantised styles. By far the stand-out is the music folder that’s filled with an array of superb performances on electric and acoustic guitar, piano, organ and electric piano, with plenty of usable riffs.
