Please tell me more about the author of the sounds.

Over to Oli, a.k.a. Mr. Hoodie from the Groove Criminals:

"I was lucky (and old) enough to be there when the first hip hop releases hit these shores from the states and still remember the excitement of this new style of music as I spent many an afternoon flicking through the latest import 12”s.

Although my musical remit is somewhat wider nowadays, hip hop gave me my first experience making beats, my first hardware sampler, my first production scars, my first few releases (on wax!), and sore feet as I trawled the charity shops of East Anglia looking for unused breaks and samples.

As an unashamedly ageing b-boy I’ve tried with this sample-pack to capture the sound of the 80’s and the 90’s, my personal golden eras of hip hop, and the feel of those producers still digging for breaks and loops."

Can the sounds be used in other software or hardware samplers?

Yes - individual samples can be used in any device that can load and play back 24-bit, 44.1 kHz WAV/AIFF/RX2 files. Note that the Geist kit files cannot be loaded in any other software/hardware, but the samples referenced by the kits can be loaded.

What is the license transfer policy for this product?

Normally we allow license transfers with an accompanying fee, but the price point for this sample-pack is extremely low, and license transfers would not make sense.

Therefore, sales are final on this product - you are paying for access and use of the content for your productions only.
