Reprinted from a Sonic Foundry press release:
MADISON, WI June 24, 2002 Sonic Foundry, Inc., a leading digital media software solutions company, today announced the exclusive release of Mick Fleetwood: Total Drumming, a 'Loops for ACID' library containing more than 800 audio samples created by Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood. The new loops can be used to create royalty-free music with Sonic Foundry's ACID, an award-winning, loop-based music creation tool used by everyone from children to musicians, to multimedia content creators for professional music production.
ACID is widely considered the industry standard for loop-based music creation for the Windows platform. More than one million copies of ACID have been sold since its introduction in 1998, making the popular music creation tool an invaluable program among leading recording artists and studios. The new Fleetwood loops, formatted as ACID-based .WAV files, are perfectly suited for use in ACID, as well as many other audio production tools that support loop-based music construction.
As a founding member of the legendary rock group Fleetwood Mac, Mick Fleetwood has earned his place in history as one of rock's greatest drummers and bandleaders.

"I am delighted Mr. Fleetwood is being added to the roster of artists who have chosen to provide license-free music resources for the expanding ACID software user base."
Mick Fleetwood adds, "There's nothing that equates to the creative thrill of making music and the collaborative process. Through this library, I'm now able to share my drums with music producers and fans worldwide. I'm proud to be part of the cutting edge in music technology."

Additionally, Sonic Foundry is offering, while supplies last, a 'Signature Series' product that includes a personally signed copy of Mick Fleetwood: Total Drumming, booklet including session photographs, production notes by Mick Fleetwood and key members of his production team, and a pair of Mick Fleetwood imprinted signature-series drum sticks (Price $99.95; available only from Sonic Foundry: 1-800-577-6642 or www.sonicfoundry.com).
