News, releases and tutorials


What a year it’s been for Sample Tools by Cr2! We’ve released more sample packs than ever, including our first Artist Pack with Purple Disco Machine, and we launched our Platinum Producer Membership subscription service.

To celebrate 2019 we’ve compiled a list of our favourite moments this year!


Nervo Remix CompNervo Remix Competition

In early 2019 we teamed up with Nervo to host a remix competition for their song ‘Emotional’. The competition had an incredible amount of submissions, all of a very high standard, which we eventually narrowed down to 5 winners.

Check out the winners here.


AKAI Fire x FL Studio

For the launch of the AKAI Fire, designed for FL Studio, we created three exclusive expansion packs with corresponding FL Studio templates. Any customer purchasing the hardware would receive our exclusive packs, Ultimate Underground, Ultimate EDM, and Ultimate Trap.

We also created a video explaining everything that’s in the packs, which you can find here.


Softube Collaboration

In 2019 Softube launched a new plugin called Monoment, for which we created 50 factory presets,  and 5 demo tracks. The plugin is especially nice for creating crisp bass presets, with a number of useful options to change the sound. The presets contain patches for Future House, Future Bass, Trap, Techno, and Trance! Find out more here.


Platinum Producer Membership Subscription Launch

Probably one of the most exciting highlights of this year, the launch of our brand new Platinum Producer Membership subscription service. The Platinum Producer Membership is a monthly subscription service giving you access to absolutely everything in our catalogue – more than 100,000 sounds, and exclusive content from established artists. For this launch we also partnered with Soundcloud, allowing you to login using your Soundcloud credentials. Find out more here and start your 10-day free trial now!


Purple Disco MachineArtist Sample Pack with Purple Disco Machine

2019 was full of exciting projects for Sample Tools, and what better way to end the year with our first ever Artist Sample Pack. In November we launched Purple Disco Machine Vol. 1, which became one of our most popular packs within a few weeks! We are honoured to be able to work with an Artist like Purple Disco Machine, and can’t wait for what’s to come in the future. Purchase the pack here.
