Cognition Audioworks

Cognition Audioworks
Despite being Canadian to the core, Cognition Audioworks’ Andrew Duke has channelled the spirit of Detroit to come up with this astounding selection of driving techno sounds. Purists will delight in the funky 808 and 909 loops, while the more experimental producer will find succour in the trippy glitched-out loops and atmospheres.

Construction Kits

Melodic Elements



On the deeper side of techno, Cyclick have delivered three construction kits at 120, 125, and 130bpm. Packed with minimal beats, dirty basses and abstract synth effects, they’ll have you churning out quality tracks with ease. And check out the single hit drum samples, with which to make your own bespoke trancey techno beats.

There are so many forms of ‘techno’ that it’s impossible to encapsulate it in one sample collection, so I have zoned in on the mid-tempo styles with loops at 120, 125, 130 and 132bpm. Each tempo folder contains a variety of beats (with alternate versions and hits), basslines, bass multisamples and synth lines.,br>
All the samples have their tempo and key included in the filename. The first capital letter in the filename is used purely to differentiate the sample groups, so TechBass B and TechBeat B are not necessarily made to fit each other, but due to the regularity of the genre it’s highly likely they will. It is only the relationship between the bass and synth lines where this is more the case, though there are matching keys across many of the samples.

Where possible the samples have been cut to form complete loops, but where a line starts after the first beat of the bar and has any kind of delay/reverb/release tail then a bar or two has been added on to the end to allow a little loop editing later.

Many of the samples have been recorded through an analogue stage (the G9 valve preamp into the GSSL and finally to the ISA828 for AD conversion) to give any digitally produced sounds a little more beans! We love beans…even techno loves beans…

Groove Criminals

Groove Criminals
The long arm of the law has never bothered the Groove Criminals, despite their blatant flouting of the 1994 Criminal Justice and Public Order Act with a barrage of post-hip-hop instrumental ghetto sounds, thunderous looping beats and edgy scratching. In their folder this month you’ll find all the drum hits, riffs, beats and multisamples you could ever need to create a stomping techno workout.
