Groove Criminals Essentials packs
- Analogue Synth FX – A collection of 100% analogue synth FX all sourced from the Groove Criminals’ stash of analogue synths, both new and vintage. The 112 24-bit WAV samples include sweeps, drops, risers, one-off hits and just plain fat, bubbly analogue goodness to top off any track.
Synths used to make this pack include the Roland SH101, Moog Little Phatty, Waldorf Pulse, Artura Minibrute, Roland SH09, Yamaha CS5, the Korg Monotron series and Synare 3. Strictly analogue processing comes courtesy of the Electrix Filter Factory, Vermona filters and a fully stocked Moog Moogerfooger rig.
- Analogue Synth Percussion – A collection of percussive hits all created from an enviable stack of analogue drum synths. From deep booms and fat bleeps to sharp twangs and metallic tones, these 120 24- bit WAV hits will help to inject some analogue goodness alongside more traditional drum sounds.
The 100% analogue sound sources used to create this versatile sample pack include a Vermona DRM1 Mk3, JoMox Air Base 99, Synare 3, Amdek PCK-100 percussion synth, Artura Minibrute, Roland SH09 and Yamaha CS5.

No Dough Samples has released Melodic, Deep & Tech House, a sample library by Marc Poppcke.
NDS-7 is the second in our series of artist packs and boy do we have a belter for you. Marc Poppcke is one of the most prolific and talented producers in the Berlin house scene. He has an incredibly unique sound and what he has put together in this pack is nothing short of essential for people who are into this sound.
As usual the artist series brings you a little bit more than a small artist pack, this thing is huge.

Incorporating the Melodic as well as the deep, you will find the blueprints for souring riffs and hypnotizing synth work alongside raw and rhythmic beats all produced in such a way as to make them instantly usable within your own productions.
NDS-7 epitomizes the sound of Marc’s label Crossfrontier Audio. He is one of the most talented producers around right now, and with this collection we get not only a labour of love but a snapshot in time of one of the most forward thinking artists there is. As the club sound moves ever onwards, this is a pack which keeps you on the bleeding edge of what’s ripping up clubs right now.
