Hi, I recently received the Magix SoundPool DVD Collection 2005 containing about 8 GB of loops (more than 10000 WAVE files). Here is my short review, mostly focusing on technical aspects.
The double-sided DVD is filled with loops from different genres. On the 2005 edition you will find: 70's Funk, 90's Disco, Ambient, Dance/Elektro, Disco/House, Drum&Bass, Easy Listening, HipHop, Rock/Pop, Techno/Trance. For each genre, there is a MagixMusicMaker (MMM) demo project on the DVD - but this is of no use for Mac folks because MMM is a PC only application! The selection of Genres pretty much reflects mainstream music. Diving into individual genre folders, you will a further classification into folders similar to this: Bass, Drums, Fx, Guitar, Keys, Pads, Sequence, Stabs, Strings, Synth, Vocals, Vocoder Overall, just the Rock/Pop genre contains 1029 samples alone with similar numbers for the other genres.
The samples inside these folders are all stereo, 44.1kHz WAVE files. They lack the meta-information that would make them easily accessible in GarageBand.
Regarding the quality, I can say that there is a good variety of sounds and the sound is very clean. Most samples (except for drums and Fx) come in 7 varieties, named like: Harp1.wav, Harp2.wav. Harp7.wav - so what's the difference? It's the pitch and harmony! The 7 sample versions correspond to different keys. If you need anything else, you need to resort to pitch shifting (which GarageBand can do for you). Also note there is no 'advanced' chords like G7 or G Sus - just some basic harmonies.
Besides the genre specific folders you can also find a 'One Shot' sample section with samples taken from various classic drum and effect machines. This is as close as its gets to providing 'playable instruments'.
To turn this collection into a GarageBand instrument you would have to use a SoundFont editor and create your own SoundFont bank which can then be loaded into the DLS synthesizer plugin. So while the DVD could be used with GarageBand as is, I am about to write a batch conversion tool from WAV to AIFF which also adds some essential meta information automatically. Some extra classifying information would have to be added manually with Apple's Soundtrack Loop Utility. I will keep you updated on the progress of the conversion utility. Consider getting the Soundpools, these DVDs are bargain retailing between $25 and $35. Given the variety and quality of content on the SoundPool 2005 DVD, I also ordered the SoundPool 2004 DVD from ebay (this was available for less than 10 bucks - and I do expect the content to be of similar quality). Of course if you prefer software synthesizer based loops or if you prefer new playable instruments and effects for GarageBand - look for a different product!;-) Finally, there is one IMPORTANT thing I need to mention: Licensing!
The samples are royalty free, but they are copyrighted and they are delivered under a license. This license states that you have to add a logo of a certain size to any commercial products that make use of these samples. So if you are serious (professional) about making music, this may NOT be a product you want to use for your productions. I have just received the SoundPool DVD 2004 also (very cheap, off ebay!).
This single sided dual-layer DVD contains 7.5 GB of loops (about 10300 total) from the following Genres: Hip Hop, World Music, Disco/House, Dance/Electro, 2-Step, Techno/Trance, Nu Metal, UK Garage, Film Music & Classical, Easy Listening, SpecialFX As you can see that is a somewhat different selection than on the 2005 DVD. There is no duplicate material! GarageBand by default ships with ca. This DVD alone contains about 10 times that much! So you might now understand why I am so psyched about these DVD sets (which retail for about $25 each). When imported properly, you get a HUGE library to work with!
An update on conversion/GarageBand import utility: Automated conversion from WAVE to AIFF now works properly. I was able to import the complete 2004 DVD into Garageband in about 20 minutes. Filenames are changed to reflect genre and category (e.g Drums, Pads, Keys, Vocals etc). Proper meta information is generated for genre, tempo as well as sample pitch and harmony. Transient data is still lacking, so samples cannot be timestretched or pitch shifted. Yet chord progressions are possible because there are 6 or 7 different versions of each sample in a different key. I completed reverse engineering of most of the Apple Loops meta information format.
I also found code that may be able to manipulate DLS and SoundFont instrument banks. That would allow to import the OneShot (drum kit) sounds on the 2005 DVD as a playable instrument.

Some details of how you went about this would be helpful. I just asked the site admins if they want to host the utility here on site. In this early stage, it is a command line utility without graphical interface.
The steps to use the program would look something like this (from the README file) Can you guys do this??? 1) Download and extract the utility, preferrable to your home directory 2) Start a Terminal application 3) Change current work directory into the folder with the extracted program ( For home directory type: cd ~ ) 4) Insert soundpool DVD into drive 5) Type the following command (do NOT forget the trailing slash!)./BatchImport /Volumes/spDVDc2004/ 6) Wait until program execution finishes (you should see thousands of lines rushing by in the terminal window during the conversion process).
7) Start GarageBand 8) in Finder, locate the folder /Library/Audio/Apple Loops/Magix AG/SoundPool DVD 2004 9) Open the GarageBand loop browser in column mode 10) Drag&Drop the SoundPool DVD 2004 folder into loop browser panel. 11) Wait until GarageBand finishes importing the loops. For the SoundPool DVD 2005, the paths vary slightly.
You can see in Finder what the DVD is named and you have to alter the parameter given to BatchImport accordingly. Also note this is a double sided DVD, so after having done the first side, flip the disc and repeat the procedure.
