    Thanks a lot for these great collections. The glitches, impacts and SD tools will come in handy on a project I’m currently working on. Cheers, Dan

    You plan to launch collection of subsonic sounds? For cinematic subwoofers.

    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!! :)

    It’s 1:30am I’m about to hit the hay…. I stumble across your site as I’m looking for inspiration regarding a short film I’m working on, I just about give up for the night then I find your site.

    I feel like I’ve just robbed it. Your collection is stunning and helps people like me out, enormously. I don’t normally leave messages – I felt I just had to this time.

    Many thanks. Keep up your great work, the quality speaks for itself.

    Again, many thanks.

    I thank you from the very bottom of mine beating heart.

    Just started learning electronic music production and I’m loving it. What’s more, cinematic scoring has always been a dream of mine! So guess what, your sample packs fell into my hands like a blessing. You’re an amazing human being and while I don’t have any money to give you now, I’ll be sure to support you in the future. Again, thank you.

    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!
