Intravenous - AudioVirus


Contents
This special ingredient on this library are the superb human performances captured in this dance loop collection. You normally only get virtuoso, subtle performances like these on specialist drum or percussion CDs rather than CDs that are designed 100% for dance.
You also get tons of material, well over a regular CD's contents jammed into this ReFill. A truly unique library if ever there was one!
More info on the Producer AudioVirus are Miles Bould and Mike Westergaard. Miles has produced two extremely popular Cds already and Mike has been involved in producing a couple too. In this instance both take centre stage to preview their new partnership. Miles handles the performances that Mike records and distorts them in his own unique style - the results speak for themselves!
Review Highlights "Intravenous, contains variety, creativity, and the most important trait: functionality. Grooves will both soothe and startle with consistently great drumming and feel. 4.5/5" - Remix (USA)

Tony Mason…Steamin'

Demo Track
Following on from the hugely successful ’Smokin…’ Tony’s back and this is one sequel that won't disappoint. Tony's built on the success of his first library including all the style and subtlety that made Smokin' such a hit - but adding new scope with the inclusion of triggered drum sounds offering a much wider palette of sounds for you to utilize. This is something special, but don't take our word for it, hear it for yourself.

Tony's first sample library, ...Smokin', was extremely highly rated by many good judges. It offered something not available anywhere else - it had it's own unique sound. Steamin’ confirms Tony's status and builds his reputation further. With credits including Gabrielle, Ronnie Jordan, Al Green, Mary-J Blige, Incognito, Matt Bianco, Fine Young Cannibals, George Michael, and many more you would expect something special, and this library is certainly that.

Review Highlights
"...this is a selection of smokin' laid back grooves. They are mainly variations around the old swingbeat bum ba-bum-bum b bum tss bum type thing, all superbly played and recorded, of course...Some (from tracks 21 onwards) with excellent fills and hits could make superb drum 'n' bass loops if spliced and speeded up, but it's really the swing-back thangs of hip hop, trip hop and hopscotch (er) that benefit from Smokin'...Those after the `real' drum sound will like Smokin'. For the rest, MIDI files of these excellent loops might be in order." - Future Music.

"He's metronomically accurate, but his subtly varied off-the-beat placement is complex, organic, and dead funky...Furthermore, Mason excels at crafting patterns that are hip and detailed without sounding contrived - there are few cliches here...No matter how electronic Mason gets, he never sounds mechanical. The triggered loops tend to feel almost as human as the purely acoustic ones." - Keyboard (USA)

"This CD features the crispest live drums and percussion played by the maestro...The sound of the drums involved are second to none - these are live drums at their best." - Knowledge

"I've been reviewing sample CDs quite a bit recently and although many have had much to recommend them, none has satisfied my own particular personal thirst for a specific kind of sample - until now...Steamin' is over an hour of very pure, very funky drum loops. They have been played with that lived in feel that makes you groove the moment you hear them and you only get from twenty years practicing playing the drums...What can I say, this is the best sample CD I've ever heard, buy it and never run out of breakbeats." - DJ Magazine

"Crammed with superb acoustic and electronic grooves, Steamin' is the perfect antidote to all those percussive problems that seem to arise whenever you're trying to lay down an authentic hip hop groove (not as easy as it sounds) or create the perfect backing for your latest swingbeat, tech-jazz or soul masterpiece. There's a staggering choice of loops (both acoustic and electronic) on offer here - from slow shuffles to meaty funk fills - all beautifully recorded...some of the seemingly effortless syncopations he managed to fit into a single loop are just breathtaking. The sounds themselves are on an equal footing offering a wide variety of kicks (everything from high n' tight to deep n' hollow), snares (buzz and side sticks too), cymbals, toms and hi-hats. There's also a useful selection of snare and hat grooves for those who prefer programming their own kick patterns...The production throughout is exquisite, as it was on its predecessor. This is exactly the kind of material that the sampler was invested for. You'll find yourself locked in the studio just dreaming up new tracks for the opportunity of getting to work with one of these grooves...no matter which style of music you're working on you'll still find this an essential purchase. Steamin' is a brilliantly creative collection. Don't miss it." - The Mix

Review Highlights
"There's everything from lush angelic choirs to creepy backgrounds — I was immediately tempted to fire up my sampler and start composing a score for an imaginary film... when I listened to the samples I was, in the main, impressed. I think this sample collection would be a useful addition to your sample library if you like your samples slightly off-the-wall, and it might just spark off some creative ideas or provide that extra piece of ambience needed to add depth to the track you're working on. 4 stars." - Sound On Sound

The first and last word in Celtic Samples! Great performers, a wide range of instruments including Fiddle, Uillean Pipes, Mandolin, Voice, Whistle, Mandocello, Bodhran, and more - a massive collection of high quality samples from the dark ages! An essential CD for film composers.

This volume features a huge selection of solo loops created in isolation to give you a wide selection of authentic loops to use in your productions. The performances are loose in keeping with the genre and as such we couldn’t product a REX version of this library. It works pretty well in ACID and Apple Loops formats.

Features the superb performances of Paul James (Bagpipes, flutes, Sax, whistles, etc.), Luke Daniels (accordion) fresh from the 'Riverdance' tour, Simon Mayor (Mandolin), Andy Taylor (Fiddle) and Julie Murphy (Vocals). Mark Hawkinsand Brian Willcocks also provided piano and programming and piano accordion respectively. All are well-known on the British Celtic scene for both studio and live work and many have featured on numerous film soundtracks.

The other volume features the deconstructed parts of 8 great tracks for you to use in your own productions - complementary parts in context. Check out the demos of the featured tracks. These are good demos for the sorts of sounds on this volume but in fact none of these samples are in here, they’re all on the other volume, but this library was recorded using the same instruments and performers during the same sessions.

Review Highlights for both volumes

"Now, R&B is definitely not my thing, but there is so much on these two CDs, covering swing to house, all well recorded...if it's your bag, then it's an excellent purchase." - Dream

"The third volume in Joe Charles and Steve McIntosh's Black II Black series is something special...Overall, the content is slickly soulful - somewhere between New Jack Swing and R&B - but each of the loops and licks is so well put together that they'll work in a wide variety of applications...the range of usable samples is enormous...Basically, if you're in the market for making seriously funky tracks, you can't afford to miss this collection." - The Mix

Dark Side of the Groove


Some Demo Loops
The long-awaited sequel from Neil Conti to his legendary 'Funky drums from Hell'. Brian Eno contributes special mixes to ensure you won't be disappointed!

Great drumming, edgy production and an obsessive pursuit of the ultimate groove ensure this is another classic, truly a work of art. 

Neil Conti is one of the UK's leading drummers and, as well as being an integral member of Prefab Sprout over the years, has also worked with David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Annie Lennox, Deep Forest, Youssou N'Dour, Thomas Dolby, Primal Scream, Level 42, Cher, Steve Winwood and many more. Brian Eno is widely acknowledged as one of the finest producers alive today.

Long live mixes and jams (with key loops sliced out in appropriate formats) as well as shorter loops categorized as Extreme, Resonant and Dry. Hundreds of loops in total. Stylistically very human, creative and warm. This collection was recorded over many years and carefully processed through the finest available analogue processing by Brian Eno and Daniel Lazerus - as you would expect you can almost hear these drums sing!

REVIEW HIGHLIGHTS
"Man this sounds fat! Noise free, but warm and fat...Brilliant recorded stuff period!...the sound quality is 100% fat! It's mixed so nicely and it really grooves...very hip sounding...I find these loops very, very useful... it's definitely an 'alone on a island' pick!" - Raapie.nl

"This collection of samples from the ex-Prefab Sprout sticks man is the most expensive of those on test here, but it's not difficult to see why. Conti's previous sample CDs have been largely down-tempo affairs, but on Dark Side he ups the pace and aggression somewhat to produce a drum loop collection of great originality and depth.

Beats vary from hip-hop grooves to drum and bass workouts via several industrial excursions. Conti has also thrown in several longer jams that organically build and change over several bars. On top of this, Brian Eno has lent a hand by bastardising several of the loops in his own personal style.

This sample library is limited purely to drum loops, so it's not one for those who are after a construction kit-type CD, but it's an excellent choice for musicians looking for some fresh and original drumbeats to lift their compositions. 4 Mice."

Hacked Sticks

Hacked Sticks is a collection of 135 Hip Hop drum loops with a vintage flavour. The loops are all based around live performances, carefully edited, processed and occasionally layered with thumps and bumps from some classic analogue beat boxes in order to retain a live sound and feel while ensuring rock solid timing and punch.

Drawing influence from the classic drum sounds of 70's funk and filtering it through modern production values, Hacked Sticks is an invaluable addition to any samplist's collection.
