    There aren’t a lot of sample packs I’ve seen that have “nonstandard” elements like these. They’re all, “kick drum, hihat, clap/snare, generic synth sound, generic loops”. Thanks to each of the creators for making these packs!! :)

    I was browsing deals on sample packs for this Black Friday – which I hate but thought hey might get some cool sounds for less. I ended up on Loopmasters website and I got so tired in just a few minutes of all the colours and writing and made up loops and s***! Then I discovered this website decent minimalist style with loads of decent sounds for FREE!!! Can’t wait to make some serious techno with these badboys. I love you so much!
