Parallel Universe Breaks

Over 200 Retro Drum, Percussion, and Drum Machine Loops so authentic they bend the Fabric of Time and Space.

Authentic Breaks stolen from famous Records in a Parallel Dimension.

My first sample pack ever to stretch the boundaries of time and space. Extracted from obscure records discovered in a parallel universe while experimenting with a DIY particle accelerator. 100% royalty free in this universe and my biggest pack to date with a whopping 200 loops!

All joking aside, this pack contains 100% royalty free drum breaks that have been carefully handcrafted to sound like they’ve always been out there, just waiting to be sampled. Using sophisticated processing and pulling from over a decade worth of experience in programming uncannily realistic sounding drum grooves, these breaks are the result of years spent studying what made those memorable grooves from the 60s, 70s, and 80s so catchy.

This pack covers a wide range of genres and distinct drum sounds that can stand on their own and compliment each other.

A number of loops even stem from the days when I still ran a little studio in Germany. Every now and then I would sneak behind whatever drum kit was in the studio at the moment and record some grooves. Turns out that these recordings came in very handy!

These loops are meant to be chopped, layered, mangled, and processed into anything you can think of - no clearance necessary.

About me

Hi there! My name is Chris and I'm a sound designer and audio mixing & mastering engineer based in scenic mountain region of Berkshire County, Massachusetts. While my background has been performing and recording music, it was the process of creating my first ever musical sample pack, Low'n'Slow, that truly made me fall in love with sound design in 2019.

Since then, I've started designing sound effects for video games, sampled rare synthesizers and drum machines, turned field recordings into contemporary hip hop drum kits, and created loops for fellow producers to use. During the course of the pandemic, I realized creating sounds for film and games was something I really wanted to pursue and while working towards that goal, I also started creating sound libraries for fellow sound professionals, video editors, and multimedia artists.

I strive to provide uncompromising, meticulously captured high-quality audio assets at an affordable price and help creatives at all stages of their career find the right colors for their sonic palette. My Blog also provides insight into my process, and my gear page highlights what equipment I use to create these libraries.
