Loopmasters has released Beat Machines TR909, a sample pack by Niche Audio.
At Niche Audio we believe the TR909 when processed and abused through the right gear takes its vibe to another level! We felt such aTR909 sample collection was missing – a TR909 sample pack lovingly created and saturated with vibe and character, along with user flexibility!
That is what we intended… and we believe this collection succeeds in capturing the soul of one of the most legendary analog drum machines ever made, and processed by some of the best boutique hardware around.
Every single drum hit has been processed by an assortment of boutique (and low end) gear for maximum authentic vibe. The hardware used includes a SSL 900 AW mixing console, and original UAD 1170, Distressors compression, DBX 165, along with Focusrite EQ. Of course, we’ve also included a non processed kit recorded via very high end convertors.
Vibe, not just quality is what this pack is all about. One of the kits even uses the exact same budget Mackie mixer used by thousands of dance record producers in the 90s. Authenticity, if its worth doing, its worth doing it right!
Beat Machines TR909 features
- 15 Kits, 48 Patterns.
- 241 One shot Samples.
- Maschine 1.8, Maschine 2.0+ or Ableton Live 9 formats..

Industrial Strength Records has launched Evan Panzer Brooklyn Breaks, a new collection of live drum loops and samples.
Drive the beat home with this rock-solid Live Drum Pack from Industrial Strength Samples. With more than 700 MB of old-school Vintage Style Breakbeats keyed across all tempos, Evan Pazner Brooklyn Breaks cuts authentic grooves for any modern track looking for a little Brooklyn love.
This fierce audio set comes clanging out of Willamsburg, Brooklyn, where these homegrown sounds were produced by studio mavericks Derek Nievergelt and Lenny Dee using pro mics and super vintage preamps. All stems and loops were hand-cut by Justin Garish to create natural grooves that lock to any tempo. These pumped-up sounds still leave loads of headroom for you to do your thing. Virtuosic session drummer Evan Pazner performed each loop live to create an arsenal of tight, flexible sounds that work magic in any style from Nu Soul and Funky breaks to dirty DnB and booming Hip Hop.
Unlock a slew of original Live Drum Loops. Each loop can be dissected into its dry stems so you can riff up a storm, rearranging, flipping, and creating completely new rhythms. What’s more, you’ll find a selection of mixed loops and cuts prepped by the inventive Lenny Dee, the master of edgy and organic.
The sample pack is available to purchase for £29.95 GBP.

Loopmasters has announced the release of Live Disco + Electro Beats, a collection of drum loops and samples by Nathan Curran aka Tugg the Drummer.
For this exclusive pack of production ready drum loops, we first mic-ed up Nathan’s incredible sounding Premier Acoustic drum kit using high end microphones and solid vintage outboard for totally authentic funk soaked Disco session that James Brown would have been proud of.
Next up, came the Electro Session where Nathan dusted off his Vintage Simmons SDS1000 Electronic Analogue drums and took to the rubber pads jamming out beat after beat of solid dance floor grooves. Once the session was recorded we pushed the loops through some of the vintage classic gear lying around the studio to maximise the impact and presence in the mix without over processing them with plenty of headroom for you to shape the sound to fit your needs. The collection also features a number of effected and heavily processed electro drums for producers looking for something a bit more whacky ready to go.
