The Loop Loft Maschine Kits

Maschine Kits from The Loop Loft contain hand-selected samples from our most popular collections.

Loop Loft Maschine Kits

  • Eric Harland Drums – The Eric Harland Maschine kit captures the signature sound of one of the world’s top jazz drummers. Wide open-toms, crackling snares and dark, trashy cymbals make this kit a must-have for anyone producing jazz and funk tracks.
  • Cinematic Drums 1 – Explosive bass drums, thunderous tom toms, ominous percussion and a plethora of unique tones make the Cinematic Drums Maschine Kit the perfect solution for anyone composing music for movies and television.
  • Everything But Sticks – Let’s be honest. 99% of the drum samples in existence use sticks. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but isn’t it time to do something different? This is why we set out to produce Everything But Sticks for Maschine, a collection of samples that take a new and fresh approach to the drum set.
  • Simon Phillips Drums – This Maschine Kit features samples from master drummer Simon Phillips (The Who, Jeff Beck, Mick Jagger, Toto etc). Simon’s signature Tama kit and Zildjian Cymbals provide the perfect bed of sounds for rock and pop productions.
  • Brazilian Drums & Percussion 1 – The Brazilian Percussion Maschine Kit features samples from drummer Celso Alberti (Steve Winwood, Airto, Flora Purim, Herbie Mann). These authentic percussion samples are perfect for layering grooves in a wide variety of genres.
  • Singer Songwriter Drums – The Singer Songwriter Drums Maschine Kit features drum and cymbal samples from our popular Art of Brushes Vol 3 release. This is the perfect kit for someone seeking “earthy” and warm drum sounds that easily blend with other acoustic instruments.

The Maschine Kits are available to purchase from $9 USD.

Loopmasters releases Jazz Drums Vol1 – Mark Fletcher

Jazz Drums V1 Mark Fletcher

Loopmasters has introduced Jazz Drums V1 – Mark Fletcher, the first in a new Jazzmaster Series of sample packs.

We launch the series with an incredible collection of Jazz Drums courtesy of Mark Fletcher whose enviable rhythmic performances prove he can he swing with the best of them, and indeed the musicality Mark expresses when playing the drum kit has to be heard to be believed, with everything from musical tom flurry’s, intricate brush work to subtle cymbal embellishments, Mark Fletcher is the man to call when you need something a little special for a session.

Mark Fletcher’s CV reads a bit like a modern jazz lover’s record shelf. From Ronnie Scott and Pete King, Hatfield and The North and Gary Husband to the final line-up of Soft Machine to feature Elton Dean and Hugh Hopper, if you know their names Mark Fletcher has probably played with them. Fletcher’s style is deeply aggressive whilst rock solid whether swinging, grooving or dancing round odd metres. He is equally comfortable playing a manic Cobham style solo, a steady shuffle or even delving into Elvin Jones or Tony Williams territory. And if you don’t think brushes can be played loud just come to one of his gigs.

The Session has been neatly chopped into separate grooves with each groove containing up to 10 stems of different microphone placements including 2 Different Kick Mics, Snare, Hats, Toms, Overheads and Front and Rear Ribbon Mics giving you the producer the chance to mix and master the drums anyhow you see fit. Included in the collection are also 73 full Drum Loops ready to drop into your productions alongside an extensive Drum One Shot collection of Hits and Drum Sfx such as Rolls and Flams.

Inside this authentic collection of jazz breaks and grooves expect to find just over 2 GB GB of 24Bit jazz breaks and grooves at 87, 100, 115, 138, 160 and 180 BPM including Swinging Rides, Intricate Brushes, Musical Tom Grooves which will work not only in Jazz but any modern Breakbeat style from Lounge to Drum and Bass.

The sample library costs £39.95 GBP.
