Make epic use of 5 scene-changing song-starter main-room kits that offer the ultimate in production flexibility. Sounds are categorized down into 100% royalty free key and tempo labelled drum hits, loops, FX and MIDI.

In total over 600MB of content is available in full-mix and stemmed variants with fully formed industry standard song ideas available as complete tracks or broken out into transferable parts for plug’n’play action within any DAW.

To round things off an exclusive tutorial video featuring Kid Massive himself gives you the low-down on how to make the very fattest synth and lead sounds using the DAW flagship Logic X.

The pack is available from Beatport for 13.95 EUR.
