It's probably not an ideal first sample CD but because of the quality and diversity on offer it can still stimulate the most stale palette.

Nasty Synth Sequences, Extreme FX, Trippy Synthetic Soundscapes, Synth-Twisted Drum Bitz and much more!

Contents

Tempos range from 73-194 bpm!

More info on the Producer
Metaldog is an extremely successful artist, producer, remixer and TV presenter! With a fetish for analogue synths that he's indulged on this CD.

Review Highlights
"Audio quality is very good. Most of the samples are very powerful sounding... I really liked this CD, there are lots of excellent samples that really grab your attention, and beg to be used... its a collection you'd come back to again and again. There are lots of powerful sounds, lots of unusual sounds and a lot of creative sounds... This CD will appeal to a lot of groups. In mainstream music industrial and harder dance styles will be able to make use of the loops and synth sounds. But probably most use would be had by soundtrack makers or game producers, there's a number of samples you can just picture fitting in perfectly in to a Science Fiction production. But other genres of music shouldn't discount this collection, there is a lot of interesting material here and if your looking for something just a little away from the norm then you may well find it here.
Overall - Excellent offbeat collection of analogue loops and synth sounds - 9/10" - Sounduser.com

Black II Black Killer Vocals - Vol 2 - McIntosh & Charles


McIntosh and Charles deliver Volume 2 in the Killer Vocals series. In all the collection includes 1287 specially recorded vocals performed by 9 top UK session singers, both male and female. CD1 is crammed full of vocal lines including:

Vocal Hooks - Ad-Libs - Vocal Fills - Screamers - Percussive Vocal Lines - Dance & DJ Vocals - Ragga Vocals - Slow Soulful Vocals - And much more.

CD2 is dedicated to 'Aaahs'. There are single notes performed by different singers at each pitch that have been looped for easy sampling. These are then also combined into various 'choirs' performing a wide range of chords that are easy to sample and drop into tracks. There also a selection of hooks and phrases on CD2 that are also LICENCE FREE. Some of these will be on the forthcoming 'Promotion' CD and others were simply included because there was no space for them elsewhere. Either way these hooks are licence free. In all there are another 689 samples on CD2, all licence free.

All samples on CD1 are subject to licence prior to use on any commercial projects. A CD like this has so much potential we decided we had to do this to protect the singers featured and singers in general but made sure we gave purchasers a really high quality, huge resource that more than compensates for this. Non-commercial use is no problem. All licencing will be carried out by AMG - we can make preset terms for users who need instant approval (like jingle producers) too. Anyone making a hit record that features one of our vocals as a hook should not expect to have got it for £60/$99 - that's not unreasonable. This fact is clearly stated on the reverse of the CD to avoid any confusion.

Review Highlights
"The vocalists have great tone, and they sound like they mean it...The phrases were recorded dry, so you can add your own thing to the mix - an indication that the package is for serious producers...This wonderful material isn't just for hip-hop; it could be a secret weapon in almost any dance or ambient mix...Overall, Killer Vocals is serious stuff. You want it? Grab it." - Keyboard USA.

More info on the Producer
Steve & Joe are veterans of the UK soul scene. The Cool Notes achieved chart successes during the eighties. They signed for PWL but the plan to 'sell soul back to the Americans' never came to fruition. They have however taken time out to produce and remix for the new breed of UK dance acts and are in the process of relaunching their careers again as The Cool Notes.

Credits

McIntosh & Charles are founders of successful UK soul band the Cool Notes. Their sample CDs, Black II Black Volumes 1, 2, 3, 4 are amongst the most successful ever released.

96th Street - BLACKBEAT


Review Highlights

"...continues along the slammin' road to funkin' heaven...swingers, jammers, funksters and slammers should all find it hard to resist." - Future Music

You could also check out the reviews for BLACKBEAT'S first CD 'Freekee Jack Swing'.

Contents
'96th Street' is OD Hunte's sequel to his successful 'Freekee Jack Swing' CD. This CD follows a similar format, but concentrates on the split loops and adds a large selection of individual sounds on top of these. The loops are divided into three styles - Rap Street Loops, Future Funk Street Loops, and Caribbean Street Loops. Each loop features four alternate versions, a standard drum loop, one with bass, another with vocal fx, and lastly with everything together.

More info on the Producer
BLACKBEAT is singer, songwriter, rapper, & producer OD Hunte. BLACKBEAT aka 'Da Black', 'the Double B', wrote, produced & recorded the highly praised 'Freekee Jack Swing' in his personal studio in late 1994/early 1995 and recently compled '96th Street' following a similar formula.

BLACKBEAT decided to produce sample CDs after being disappointed by the quality of several products that he heard and by the lame sameness of many loops used by prooducers, remixers, jingle programmers, etc. The only producers that seemed to be making new & interesting noises were from the usual big-name stables; Jam & Lewis, Babyface, and of course Teddy Riley. Infact, BLACKBEAT owes part of his groove construction technique to TR as he was unwittingly granted access to composite tracks and samples from a remix session of a TR-produced American artist. Those loops and sounds made fascinating listening. New Jack Swing was no longer a kick, a snare, a hat and a couple of odd noises... Hence BLACKBEAT loops reflect this intent to load the groove with as many tasty syncopations as can be squeezed in. Another trademark of the BLACK's sample CD sound is the eight bar loops & four bar patterns. The Loops on '96th Street' and the first section of 'FJS' are produced in this format so that the purchaser can hear the beat go to work and get to grips with the groove rather than just having a two bar snippet which leaves you sitting there with your finger glued to your CD review/search button.

OD Hunte is presently looking for a publishing deal for his songs with a major publisher as well as pursuing remix and production assignments. OD Hunte is particularly interested in working with rappers and groups based on strong vocal harmonizations who have record company interest but don't want to incur an un-recoupeable national deficit just too afford a big-name producer. You can contact BLACKBEAT via AMG.

Freekee Jack Swing - BLACKBEAT


"This CD serves up a tasty set of swing, hip hop and ragga grooves. The first 23 tracks are composite loops, with five variations containing just drums, drums and bass, drums and vocals, drums and vocals and bass, and finally the whole lot. There's a good variation of grooves here with tempos from 90 bpm up to 140 bpm. Tracks 25 to 53 contain grooves of around a minute in length, evolving over that period to give a wealth of variations to play with. Blackbeat have thrown in some vocal bites on the last three tracks which, if nothing else, top off the collection nicely.

Overall, this is another excellent release from Blackbeat, it's success due to OD Hunte's imaginative and well-executed grooves, combined with good recording quality and nice presentation." - The Mix

Contents
This CD is split into two parts. The first half of the CD is packed with loops, each is broken down into into 5 versions - the standard loop, a variation, a version with bass, another with vocals and fx, and then the whole lot together. The second half of the CD is full of grooves that build from the basic drum loop into full productions. The idea is to sample the section that has the combination of elements you require whilst hearing it in context. There's also a small section of vocal bites right at the end of the disc.

HitSound Sampling CD Vol 1 - Pure Gold Synth - Lee Groves



Released way back in 1990 and sold out only a short while later, this truly is a blast from the past! The first AMG sample CD ever released and one of the first in the World. At the time only synth and instrument sample CDs existed. We went on to release the World's first drum loops, percussion loops, multisampled drums and dance samples libraries and pioneered many of the formats that have since become industry standards - ReFill, REX1, REX2 and Apple Loops. Only 1000 units were ever released and we only have one left in our vaults. This gold disc is where it all started and now you can get access to these sounds again for the first time in decades by grabbing these disc images and being able to burn it for yourself. Grab a bit of sampling history and some of the most innovative synth sounds of their era at the same time.
