Sample Tools by Cr2 has launched Dark Tech House and Progressive EDM 2, two new sound packs featuring loops, samples and synth patches.

Sample Tools by Cr2 Dark Tech House

Dark Tech House is a new production toolkit from the producer of the Deep Analogue House pack.

This pack is packed with deep rolling bass loops, sublime chord hits and swells, carefully crafted punchy drum loops and one shots and huge cavernous FX sounds. We’ve included songstarter construction kits – 45 second ideas bounced out into stems to enable you to get ideas flowing quickly and easily, along with over 50 presets for Massive and Sylenth.

We are always dedicated to helping you develop as producers so with Dark Tech House, we include Logic Pro X and Ableton Live 9 templates and 3 Prod-Cast video tutorials covering Tech House bass production, creative use of samplers and special feedback techniques. We also include a video from psychology of music production guru Mike Monday where he introduces his technique for getting you producing 4 times more music.

Dark Tech House is available for purchase from Beatport for £15.99 GBP.

Sample Tools by Cr2 Progressive EDM 2

The Progressive EDM 2 pack contains 2.86GB of material designed to give you all the festival EDM tools you could possibly need to compete with the top EDM producers.

There are huge bass lines and synths, big punchy drum loops, one-shots and inspiring FX sounds. We have provided every melodic part as a MIDI file, key labelled our kicks and included 59 presets for Sylenth including sounds from the pack so you have total flexibility.

In addition there are 8 Songstarter construction kits, there are Logic Pro X and Ableton Live 9 templates, 3 Prod-Cast video tutorials and a music productivity video by Mike Monday.

Progressive EDM 2 is also available from Beatport for £15.99 GBP.
