Maschine Magic: Found Sound [£14.90]
Edgy Sounds for Underground Beats
Maschine Magic: Found Sound is a unique and diverse collection of 153 found sound hits presented in 10 full-track macro-integrated Maschine projects and kits for underground dance production.
Recorded in numerous urban environments — from railway stations to skate parks, construction sites to city centres — Found Sound captures all manner of metallic clinks, mechanical noise, electrical buzzes, footsteps, door slams, scrapes, sirens, taps, knocks and re-works them into an unorthodox palette of percussive sounds for use in all genres of electronic music requiring creative and edgy beats.
SM has integrated the sounds into 10 Maschine projects loaded with:
- A full drum kit (30+ sounds in each including kick, snare, hats, claps, cymbals, percussion, atmospheres, bass, etc.).
- Melodic elements and FX.
- Full MIDI arrangement.
- Extensive native Maschine effects processing.
- Total macro-mapping and automation for all elements in the project.
To showcase the versatility of the sound, each project track covers a different genre of cutting-edge electronic music, including house, techno, garage, dubstep, downtempo and more.
In each project, explore the sounds used, song structure, FX processing and automation. Each project comes mapped with between 40-48 creative group and master macros, giving you powerful performance and mix control instantly.

Chillwave 2 [£34.90]
Cassette-deck beats, sun-laced synths and nostalgia melodics
The original Chillwave production team revisit the same sepia ground for Chillwave 2, loaded with 1.8GB of retro melodics, beach-hazed beats and tape-saturated music loops inspired by the best of 80s synth pop, chillout, indie and nu-wave.
Featuring more sounds, more inspiration kits and more drum hits – as well as bonus MIDI files and new arps, fills and basslines folders – Chillwave 2 is the result of a two-year production love affair fostered by a host of second-hand synths, garage-sale guitar pedals and battered outboard.
Loops are offered in 90 and 100BPM tempo groups.
- Drum Loops > 240+ cassette-deck drum loops and lost-summer grooves. 8-bit re-sampling and Casio processing inject every frequency with organic sweetness. Beats are offered with kick-free, perc-only and stripped variants for maximum arrangement freedom.
- Drum fills > Choice selection of tried and tested tom fills for the turnarounds.
- Inspiration Loops > 44 folders of sepia song-starters. Basslines, synths, arps, atmospheres, pads, guitars, music loops - they're all here. Use them as they are, or treat them as crate-dug vinyl cuts. Re-work them for 1,000s of new progressions. All loops supplied with bonus MIDI for supreme flexibility.
- Bass Loops > Live indie and synth low-enders to underpin the groove.
- Synth & Key Loops > Drifting toplines, wave-bent synths and classic progressions: key-labeled hooks aplenty.
- Arps & Sequences > Moog runs, sultry sequences and neon cascades. 70+ rhythmic melodics.
- Guitar Loops > Cracked soundscapes, wavering chords and hazy reverses to bury in the mix.
- Vocal Loops > Fractured choirs, re-modelled vox and washed-out sung-phonics: concentrated soul in every hook.
- Dust and Found Sound Loops > Rainy beaches, dust roads, twilight cafés and more: backing beds in search of melodic reclinees.
- Chords > Craft your own progressions with this 110-strong chord vault of stacked, resampled and effected one-shots, each trembling with detail. Many offered with different chordal variants (including major, minor, 7, 9), with extra folder for tempo-synced fx. Just sample and go.
- Drum Hits > 330+ masterfully sculpted one-shots (folders for kick, snare, clap, toms, hats (open, closed, cymbals), percussion) offer beat-builders that rare mix of effortless usability and sonic integrity. From layered Linn Drums to vintage snares recorded in our LA studio, every hit is passed through our much-imitated, yet-to-be-bettered outboard chain.
- 939 x 24-bit Wav Loops.
- 939 x Apple Loops.
- 939 x Rex2 Files.
- 445 x 24-bit Wav One-shots.
