In a Nutshell
The ultimate synth sample library from the King of the Synths!
"...this CD is a must for anyone creating techno-pop tunes - or for anyone creating anything vaguely electronic-sounding with a sampler. Ambient-dance acts will love the filtered sections, rave and acid fans will love the blippy loops, Industrial bands will want the heavy kicks and sub-basses, Kraftwerk eyro-artists will use the thips, pings and electronic percussion noises, new age nuts will layer the sweeps with their guitars...Lucky Bastard is one hell of a useful CD. 9/10" - Future Music, Nov 93.
"Five Stars in every category." - Keyboard, USA
"would certainly make a worthwhile addition to many peoples sample library. 8/10." - SoundUser
"this CD could fulfil most analogue dreams, be they industrial, ambient, techno or just clouded, gibbering fantasies" - Music Technology
A huge collection of sequences specially created by Vince using his massive collection of classic analogue synths. Many totally synth-generated unique drum loops, one of Vince's trademarks - each broken down into elements for easy customisation and extraction of single hits.

More info on the Producer
Vince Clarke is a living legend.
A founding member of Depeche Mode writing 'New Life', 'Just Can't Get Enough', he has since gone on to form two more hugely successful bands. First Yazoo with Alison Moyet, then Erasure with Andy Bell.
Yazoo produced timeless classics such as 'Only You' and 'Don't Go' and led to a successful solo career for Alison Moyet. Erasure have spent ten years at the top of the charts in the UK and around the rest of the World.
Their hits have included 'A Little Respect', 'Sometimes', 'Drama!', 'Always', 'Stop!' and many more. Erasure remain one of the most respected creators of SynthPop to this day.
Apple Loops are designed for use with Apple's 'GarageBand', 'Soundtrack', 'Logic Pro' and 'Logic Express'. The key and tempo of files can be quickly set to your requirements and files can easily be found thanks to programmed tags. Music has never been faster to create, edit and enjoy. These loops will ensure it also sounds amazing whether you're a novice or pro!
