Reviews

  • I didn't know much about MDE before this pack, so its been a good weekend getting immersed into this folder of goodness. I personally love the bass hits and synth stabs there are also some great synth and vocal loops to cut up. I have been working this into my techno inspired dnb.


    Proxima should have his named splashed all over this, highly recommended and very well constructed. He's a great engineer and this pack oozes groove. The pack is all set at 172bpm I'm a fan of the drums and percussion loops, which will get a good airing. Well crafted and essential.


    Minimal DnB

    Rating: 8/10

    Minimal DnB is ethereal & atmospheric, this fills the void between other packs on the market and delves into the litchi end of the spectrum. I'm a fan of the percussion loops and hits. I work mainly around 170bpm so this is perfect for me, just drag and drop.


    Future Drum & Bass

    Rating: 9/10

    Future futuuuuuuttttuuuuurrrrree. This pack is running, some classic breaks that have been recited and rolled out at 172 bpm. Great for starting off a tune and catching a vibe. My only issue with the drums is that the kick drum is very similar if not the same in a lot of the drum loops. But thats easily fixed with some editing. There are some great bass and music loops, one shots and sample patches, and overall this is one of the strongest D&B packs about.


    Indie Electronic

    Rating: 8/10

    Indie electronic is a must have for those who cross genres and like to try new musical directions. The pack is heavy, laden with some amazing drum, bass guitar and music loops. Great for getting ideas down, the synth hit and midi folders are really helpful. Big love Dabro music


    Melodic Techno

    Rating: 8/10

    5pin Media keep them coming, with another strong pack, stacked with rex2 live 9, groove templates, midi apple loops, multi samples and everything else. Great bass loops, drum loops grooves, one shots and awesome drums and perc fx. A great pack for deeper dnb. Everything here is warm and of the highest quality. Im very much a fan.

    Ultra Pack 3 makes me want to buy Ultra Pack 2 ( which i missed out on) note: Ultra Pack 1 is equally as good. Anyways you need all three. Its a huge chunk of resource, I have already sampled some of the drum hits and sub hits Its refreshing to have access to such a solid sample pack. also there are video tutorials, track starters and everything else you need to get started all ready to roll.


    Liquid Electronica

    Rating: 8/10

    Liquid - it's in the title, it has to be fluid and flowing. The pack isn't based around a d'n'b tempo but the sounds, melodic loops and one shots and ambient pads work perfectly at 170+. Expect to hear some of this pack in future NFM productions.


    Hybris rolls it out with this stellar pack of precision samples, superbly eqed and hitting all the right frequencies. All the loops sit at 172, the hat and perch loops just work perfectly drag and drop, i would also recommend the sfx loops. Check the bass multis and syth multis and drum hits work on any vibe d&b. Disrupt the system.


    Blinding work from Breakage. This is everything you would want from a beatsmith like Breakage. The pack is all at 170, the drums are to die for, percussion & tops just lift up your tunes and give them a perfect groove. I have already rolled out a couple of tunes with this pack. Expect to hear these breaks in dnb tunes for another twenty years.


    The Abstract transports you into a mechanical world of loops and sounds, which can be combined and flipped a multitude of times. Textures, tonal loops, ensemble drums and top loops make up the mass of the pack. This reminded me of Ed Rush and Optical's creep album, plenty to get your head around and vibe off.


    Hip Hop Chilla

    Rating: 8/10

    Chilling in the cut with this authentic ambient and hiphop fusion sample pack. This pack is perfect for jungle with all the grooves sitting around 80bpm, some excellent drum breaks and bass loops. The midi and rex2 files are excellent and you also have the sampler patches. If you're about warm grooves this is for you.


    Another concrete pack filled with garage vocals bars and Production-ready hooks. Well recorded and of the high standard all keyed up with bpms and ready to drop into your DAW. Simple and to the point. Essential for liquid d&b.


    Cinematic Hip Hop 2

    Rating: 8/10

    I totally recommend this pack a wicked resource and perfect for adding a cinematic edge to your compositions. There is a great depth to the pack and its very thorough. A great selection of melodic atmospheric and stripped loops plus some vocals drums and bass loops. This is perfect for deep drum & bass.


    Organic to the core, this pack has warmth. Perfectly laid out loops on one shots, all keyed up and with the bpm which makes it really easy and useful to use. I'm personally into the drum breaks which are really well constructed. There are also stripped drum loops if you're just after some broken percussion or tops without editing out the kicks and snares. I'm looking forward to vol 3.


    Dark Cinema

    Rating: 10/10

    Opening credits, atmosphere and the drums roll in. Another seamless excursion in sound from Loopmasters. Synths, drums bass, guitars and percussion all at various tempos and some seriously great hits of all the above. It's worth purchasing this for the synth multi packs, really thorough.


    Futuristic RnB

    Rating: 9/10

    For the Futurists out there, two folders of loops and one shots, all keyed up and ready to roll out. Some great vocals + guitars and field recordings to bend your ear. Innovative and inspirational. A must have!!


    Some great resource right here, tempos ranging from 120>128 but if you know what ya looking for re cutting and time stretching these vocals plus pitching them up and down will work perfectly for d&b. There are some great phrases and riff cuts to work with plus some spoken word. Expect to here some of this on forthcoming NFM productions.


    Experimental DnB

    Rating: 10/10

    The catch line to this pack read's "If you're a fan of the dark, moody and adrenaline pumping sounds, you are going to love “Experimental DnB”. Well i am a fan and this pack is exactly what I'm looking for. The tempo of the pack ranges from 165/175 bpm and you have everything you need to write some thought provoking d&b. I personally liked the drum loop and ones shots especially the percussion.


    Movie Soundtrack

    Rating: 9/10

    pow this was unexpected, so much to work with, the quality is top notch, great cinematic atmosphere. All the loops are sitting at 140 bpm but just a huge array of drums top loops, music and bass. I found this very useful. This pack will start you off at the open credits and make your music wide screen.


  • Drum & Bass Liquidism

    Rating: 8/10

    I love this catch line "tranquil sounds to take you to a Drum and Bass Nirvana" pretty much sums it up. This pack is very current in its formula, i wouldn't say it encompasses all liquid dnb its very clean and well thought out. you have full drums, perc loops and top loops all at 174. I think this pack is worth it just for these folders alone. Buy on sight.


    Rockwell UK Drum & Bass

    Rating: 10/10

    Rockwell has forged ahead with some of the most forward thinking d&b in the last decade. This pack reflects his recent catalogue of productions and the quality he brings to d&b. I recommend this pack to all d&b headz as its in a league of its own, the bass sounds alone are worth the buy.


    This pack isn't for the faint hearted. its pretty in ya face, with the dnb style, the basses are a bit full on for me, but it was the drums that i grooved with. A nice selection to fill pout ya library. I would also look at the synths and atmosphere folders full of useful air candy.


    This series keeps on giving, another great resource for the newbie or professional D&B / Jungle producer. In this pack you have a nice cross section of drums hits & bass sounds + fx, plus a folder of synth multis + synth hits. You also get full drum and bass folders wicked percussion loops and atmospheres. Its always good to upgrade your sample selection or add to you library this is that kind of pack you need. look for packs 1-4 as well.


    Lo-Fi Trip Hop

    Rating: 7/10

    Lo fi but but perfectly recorded rich with nostalgia and warmth. The pack has various melodic and percussive vocal loops which all work great with d&b. + a great selection of drum hits and short melodic samples. well recommended.


    Hip Hop Shadows Vol2

    Rating: 8/10

    One more from the shadows, the follow up pack to vol 1 which gives you a series of construction kits based around a tempo and key. I find these packs super fun to work with, as it sets the tone for me to build from, often i end up only using one of two elements from the pack before everything else is deleted but as a resource to kick start some ideas this is really useful.

    Hip Hop One

    Rating: 8/10

    Finally a pack that screams NFM golden age beats. Im a huge hiphop head and this pack suited me perfectly vintage vibes. you have 3 folders of loops, music bass and drums plus bass hits, drum, fx midid some great multi bass and synth stabs. Simple and to the point


    I Love the Sitar, and used one previously on a tune on playas called Virmana, So this pack is perfect for me to readdress my love for the instrument.

    Hip Hop Ultra Pack

    Rating: 7/10

    Absolutely loving this pack.. Its big and weighty coming in at nearly 2gb. This pack is jammed with bottom grooves, drum fills, loops and some cool rap vocals. Interesting scratch loops, sfx and sampled loops. There is also some templates and video tutorials to wrap it all up. This is the chronic.


    Blinding pack from Lenzman, This guy has put a lot of effort into this pack it oozes soul. You have everything you need here sampler patches and rex files wav loops and separated folders of drum hits, bass hits atmospheres and stabs. This pack is worth it for the drum loops expect to here them used for the next 20 years or more. This pack is from somebody who really cares about dnb.


    Gully Grime

    Rating: 8/10

    Current UK Grime sounds, great vox and fx, plus bass multis, drum loops and musical loops. I found the drum hits and instrument multis really helpful. Essential if you're following the original UK sound.


    Laid back in every which way, I'm totally vibing off this pack at the moment. As they say in the promo "laid-back blend of soothing melodic elements, rustic beats and sun-soaked bass. Step into the crystal clear waters of Liquid Beat and Future Chill and watch the sun rise!" Im in agreement. This pack ticks all the boxes, has your standard rex files, sampler patches and bonus midi, + plus a great selection of drum & bass multis and fx and synth multis. Also there a extensive amount of loops to get stuck into and switch up. Check out the demo pack, really nice elements to add to deep dnb.


    Atmospheric Chill

    Rating: 8/10

    When i read the description and it said "Trippy progressions" that was it, I'm sold. A excellent pack which can be manipulated and used for many different genres, i personally enjoyed the field ambiences and and synth loops. This pack is very personal and maybe not for everybody, but if your into the Need for mirrors sound this is for you.


    Cinematic Hip Hop

    Rating: 9/10

    So so dusty, proper tings from Rankin.Loving the tone and groove of this pack so much soul. The pack is broken into loops melodies, percussion and baselines, plus melodic and percussive one shots. very simple but effective pack. hunt this out if your into the raw cuts packs also.


    If you like your Detroit house then this is gonna wet your appetite. you have full tracks to flip and switch up and rex and files. I would have liked to have one shots for this pack also. Overall another great pack from Defected.


    Trap Ultra Pack 2

    Rating: 8/10

    Im building a solid trap sample bank, and maybe swaying on my views of the genre. i really enjoy the trap elements it works perfectly with drum and bass. This pack has everything you need drum and bass loops, middi files one shots rex files, you name it, its here. + templates, vat synth paths. i could go on. Im a fan of the drum hits and bass stabs. check it


    Easily one of the strongest left field electronic packs I've used, synth hits, multis, fxs and lots of bass its all here and ready to roll. This pack has a nice balance of elements and sounds but i would get familiar with Brassicas work as this may not be for everybody but it is for me. ps check the bonus midi and rex files and sample patches, hours of fun.


    Another addition to the library, lockjaw who I'm familiar with from his dispatch release puts together this very current sounding pack. All the loops sit around 172 which is my only draw back but you can easily get around that. The production is top notch and his drums have plenty of dynamics and air which make them also very timeless. In this pack you have drum, bass perch and music loops all keyed and ready to go and plenty of hits bass multis, music and drum hits sfx and my favourite dark horns. Big up all the aussie crew.


    Hip Hop Lunar Cycles

    Rating: 7/10

    One more collection of left field electronica full of synth, beat and bass loops and drum hits and fx plus sample and rex files all easily manipulated for dnb.

    Another stellar pack from Rankin, jam packed with everything, bassloops, shots, breaks, drum hits, drum loops and sounds layers,fx melodic loops and some great vocal loops.This is perfect for adding a some warm groove to your tunes.

  • Akinsa - DnB Restructure

    Rating: 10/10

    Easily a 10 for this one. The bass folders are broken up into Reece, 170bpm sub and various shots plus some serious drum breaks, totally schooled out and so good i couldn't fault them, drag and drop or flex them out. The pack is bare bones D&B just how I like it.


    I wasn't sure if this had anything to do with dread recordings or a new artist but regardless its a solid collection of rolling drums perfect for the beginner or expert junglist. You have drum loops effected and raw all running at 175 bpm which was my only gripe. it would have been good to have a selection of bpms. However this is a good pack and a recommend it for building ya resource of beats and breaks.


    Lynx Kinetic Drum & Bass

    Rating: 10/10

    Another blinder of a pack from Lynx. bass loops drum loops fx, music perc, all rready to drag and drop into your daw. Great one shots and multis that are of the highest standard. This is a timeless pack and essential buy. I will smash this pack to bits.


    Im not a huge fan of trap but I enjoy elements of what makes it current and what connects it with hip hop and jungle. The strength of this pack is its well rounded hits and loops, bass sounds and fxs, perfect for what I'm into. I would also check out the vocal fx and vat synth patches which have come in handy for my tunes.

This pack is jammed with everything you're looking for synth, percussion, drum and bass loops all at 172. plus a huge collection drum,bass and synth hits and multis.

    Another versatile pack from Terry Grant. This is full of various tempos 80,100,120bpm plus bass guitars,synth bass, pads, piano loops and percussion and fx. I love the quality and depth of this pack. I am always looking for new and inspiring textures to get my brain working overtime.


    I was lost in time with this one, excellent for fx and synth hits and multis, i would also recommend the bass hits for drum and bass. There is a lot of great one shots and multis, with the right effects and tempo you can create some very interesting compositions regardless of the tempos equipped. I would recommend this to anybody who enjoys vintage atmospheric music.


    I have always loved Eveson's drum programming, he has a good knowledge of how to roll out classic breaks and supporting baselines. This pack encapsulates his sound and progression into his new endeavour "dead mans chest". This pack has all the loops you need mostly rolling around 172 and 170bpm. A real treasure trove of dnb gold.

    A solid pack filled with nothing more then fantastic strings. This pack is for house music but dnb is influenced by all styles of music and a lot of my recent drum and bass has had some house feel to it.

    A Strong pack of keys & chords, excellent for deeper soulful dnb, the bpms are suited for house 118>125 but for cutting up and replaying the quality of the source material is awesome. Look out for soul rush packs very good quality.

You cant go wrong with this as your number 1 dub resource.


    This is juicy so much vibes to pick from i really enjoyed all the hammond organ multis and dub effects. there are a loud of vocal takes to cut up and re phrase. The musical section of guitar, bubble, horn & piano stabs are excellent and the main reason i went for this pack. The drum kit hits are good but do not have the tempo or a full track fill attached to the folder which made it a little slow to chew through when your looking for a certain vibe. I feel that this needs to be essential in all packs. Again sampler patches and rex loops are great to use.


    Dark Dub

    Rating: 9/10

    Great Resource heaps of bass samples even though they are at 140 its the one shot hits your after. There is also a great selection of percussive and rhythmic loops and sounds to chew through. The drum components and hits and fx are the highlight for this pack. everything is well laid out and of the highest quality recording. This is a staple for anybody building up a solid studio sound bank and library.


    I was not sure what i was getting into here, I like to write downtempo tracks and enjoyed the demos that where available to check before purchasing this product, but expected to get the parts clean and not so dirty. But overall some real nice grooves and hits i am sure i will find some time to utilise this pack. I have only gone through all the wav packs and not the sampler patch's. recommended for headz that enjoy well produced dirty grooves. Real hip hop.


    K-tee is a very solid producer and this pack is essential library material. and after the friction and Icicle pack a follow up shogun pack cant go wrong. You have all the basic rex sampler patches and a huge volume of sounds fxs and wavs. Everything is broken down into hits and multis and for me i was more interested in his bass parts and synth hits. But the drums are very good and all round i just cant fault this pack i keep going back to it and catching vibes. serious resource.

    There is alot to get through on the construction kits, I focused more on creating ambient soundscapes and implementing this to my drum and bass using the rex kits via reason into cubase. the kits range in bpm and have basics to get you started and help you create your own sound. There are also some classic vocal cuts to look for. I wouldnt recommend this for somebody starting out unless you know where your at. This is a good framework for a seasoned producer to own.


    data's "sentinel" was one of my favorite tunes in previous years, so i was eager to get deep into this pack and see whats what. its drum parts are broken down into basic hits plus there are multis and the same for the bass section he has a few folders of synth and fx hits/multis but really your after his drum grooves and percussion. his clinical production shines through and there is a depth of parts to start and finish full tracks. I recommend this for new and old producers to build there own kits or reinforce there drums.


    I was really impressed with how much there own signature sound they put into this pack. as opposed to some other packs this goes very deep into sound design and very well engineered elements of drum and bass. The sounds and fx section is a thorough pack with everything you need to start and finish a very cutting edge dnb track. This gave a me a greater appreciation of there music and how talented they are is a electronic act.


    Nu tone is Such a talented producer and with this pack he is giving you a full palette to work with. For me its his piano, rhodes, strings and synths which have always caught my attention. This pack gives you a taste of that plus his uplifting bass loops, stabs and drum hits and loops. I would recommend this for anybody that wants to add a little soul and funk to there tracks.


    So much to play with in this pack, the drums are seriously hard, you have a folder of amen edits and cymbal loops which are worth every penny, the hat hits and rides will give your tracks added energy. The bass stabs and riffs are of the highest quality and have a great selection to pick through. Also check for the percussion folder for some cheeky edits.


    These guys are one of the most prolific acts in drum and bass and this pack the volume of tracks they roll out is ridiculous. And its this pack which gives you a perspective on what makes there tunes so good - Energy. You have all the basics that most packs have but its the Drum construction kits that are the key to there tracks. You can just drop these kits into your arrangement and you have a instant groove playing out which well eqed and ready for club action. Try mixing and matching the drum packs to create your own grooves and check the bass pack for some classic bass stabs. This is a must have for any dnb producer new or old. I didnt know what i was missing until i downloaded this.


    More from Pete Whitfelds industry standard series of strings. This one has added a chamber to our library, giving us a timberland dynamic to our dnb productions. check for our track d.f.t.f for a interesting approach to using this style of string. Even at a low tempo this pack creates some interesting ideas that can be worked around 170bpm. Again this is serious quality and i need the rest of the series.


  • I have always enjoyed Loxys drum programing and this pack alongside Resound has given me a great insight into the technical side of there production. The construction kits and drum lps are the highlight of the kit. The guys have a great knowledge of classic breaks and there own unique take on programing drums. check there album on exit for a taste of there diversity in this field. The only negative of the pack was there wasnt enough bass parts and atmospherics which is two of the key elements i like about their tracks. But overall its the drums your getting with this and if your starting out this is a great entry level pack.


    Real Strings

    Rating: 7/10

    Pete Whitfield a legend in his own right, his real strings packs are highly sought after and its worth checking out his blog to see how many artists are credited for using his work. The main focus for us is the full string loops section of wavs which has a large selection of progressions, and the strip downs are also worth checking. what i enjoy about this and other packs by real strings is the ability to mix up the strings and build seamless arrangements of your own. What your buying here is a pack which cant be replaced or matched by other string packs, its the real deal.


    Twisted Dub

    Rating: 10/10

    This a staple in the studio right now, the drum hits are refreshing and for drum and bass or dubstep this is essential. there is also a good selection of clav, key , organ and piano stabs, atmospheres, textures and fx. i didnt find the bass loops suited what i was looking for but the deep roots flava, key loops drums etc this is the one. i would also recommend the future clash pack.

    Im on a dub flex at the moment so this was the 2nd pack I have tested the other is twisted dub which I recommend. This pack has 6 different tempo sections, I choose to go with the lower tempos around 82 and 90 and take individual hits from the loops and melodies. Also check for the vocal parts which can add the hook to any jungle stepper. The one shots folder is the highlight of the pack and the selection of drum shots and bass shots make sure thats throughly exploited.


    I enjoyed this pack for its sounds and fx section, also the drum fills and and drum hits are worth checking for. there are some great ambience phrases and riffs from various acoustic instruments, For drum and bass i found that i used some of these sounds more for back ground textures as opposed to lead sounds or riffs. With some good effects this pack is worth its weight, i need to check the previous volumes. This pack is suited for producers who want to build up there own drum kits and bring some depth to there recordings.

    It took me a while to get into the vibe of using this pack as there is just so much to chew threw it was daunting. but once we where acquainted with the pack things feel into place. There is a great section of brass and chord fx, flute solos, sax solos, trombone and trumpets, Everything you need to bring that blue note vibe to your tracks. The percussion section is also a valuable resource. just note that there is a huge volume of material to go through in this pack.

    Wow these guys are killing Drum and bass right now with some of the best engineered music about. We where drawn to the pack due to the drum refills and bass parts. The guys are perfectionist's and if you after that expert sound you cant get a better drum and bass sample pack. Check for the percussive parts which give added funk to your beats. We have already started to use parts of this pack in our creations and we are sure this pack will make its way into many other established artists sample libraries.


    Krust is a huge inspiration for our music, and this sample pack reinforces that. We have found that this pack gives a great insight into how krust gets that trade mark organic sound, which had a sense of mystery to us. The drums are dirty and have that krust v synth texture and energy to them. We where more drawn to the arp sounds and mini moog sound design samples and layers that are on the pack. fantastic if you dont own this hardware already. This pack is a staple resource for any electronic producer. Salute


    This pack has been a welcomed supplement for us in the studio. We have already sampled some of the drum hits and break components but its his use of reverbs and fxs on the bass patch's that are second to none. Its refreshing to have access to such a solid sample pack. Watch out for some forthcoming Need for mirrors tunes c/o eclectic drum and bass.


    Fracture is a true drum and bass wizard, This pack contains some great drum construction kits, a fantastic selection of kicks, snares, hats, rides shakers in full break form or its composite parts and some very progressive organic bass stabs and parts that are all keyed and with there bpm. This is great for a novice producer or established artist and has been for us a great insight into the astrophonica sound.
