I like Loopmasters because they have a lot of sample collections, mostly in the electronic musical genres (house, hiphop, drum’n’bass, etc…), but also some acoustic, jazz or ethnic series. So lots of choices, and you can download a lot of samples for free too.
In their newsletter back in the spring they had a survey, to know better what their customers liked and wanted from Loopmasters. And as an incentive to participate, a draw for 10 Loopmasters sample and loop collections … and I won!
I got my prize through the mail, so actual DVDs, not just downloads. Here is a picture of my Loopmasters Prize (click on the picture to enlarge it):
A nice prize, as the total value is approximately $500. And I got some excellent libraries. Some from which I had downloaded the free samples before. But for most, I did not know them but now I am glad I own them.
So here are the 10 sample packs I won and their link to Loopmasters.com:
- Drum & Bass Collective – Full Cycle
- Alternative House – Tim Healey & Marc Adamo
- Sound Science – Coldcut
- Deep House Producer – Harley & Muscle
- Jacked Out Future House – Joey Youngman
- Xfer – Deadmau5
- Drum & Bass Studio Technique – Drumsound & Bassline Smith
- House Generation – Marshall Jefferson
- Hip Hop & Electronica – The Nextmen
- Electro House & Breaks – Aquasky
I must say I did not go through all of them yet, I really spent less time doing music and updating my blog this summer. But now that winter is coming, I will have more time to stay inside and play with Mixcraft 6 and these sample collections.
Coming soon: a post about The Nextmen HipHop and Electronica library, and more demo songs …
