The Flamenco Percusión Pack contains two components: the software instruments or programs Cajón and Palmas, and the templates (or project files) for the music software Logic™ or GarageBand™. We are talking about virtual instruments for sample players e.g. EXS24, not about loops.

Software-Instruments vs. Loops
The difference between a loop and a software instrument. The length of a loop can be stretched slightly, or can be subdivided. But stretching is limited. If the speed is reduced too much, it does not sound so great. If the speed is reduced even more, it sounds really ugly.
For percussion software-instruments are much better ...
Each time you record a real or software instrument, you create a region in the instrument's track containing the music you record. The regions here are divided in half, whole or two-bar patterns. A region can be looped, copied and moved everywhere. We copy a region to edit it. Now let's drag notes up or down to a different pitch. In our case not the pitch is changed but the tones of the cajón. ...
The main controls in the channel are the volume slider, the pan dial and the speaker button. Here are the track volume. By clicking on the Info button the Effects window opens. You can see the instrument itself, a compressor and an equalizer. By clicking on the appropriate button the effect setting opens. Now we open the equalizer, which can be set easily with the mouse in the different frequency ranges. ...
See how you can make easy your own arrangement.
The EXS24 software sampler is a part of Logic. The sound source is the supplied library or sample CDs from third parties. It is controlled via MIDI events that can be edited in Logic.
The Cajón instrument consists of 18 stereo samples (24 bits). The Palmas instrument 22 stereo samples (24 bits).
