    Default Calvin Harris - Sussed out!

    Has anyone here (who's into production etc) got a sample pack from Sounds to Sample called Progressive House Synths and Stabs Volume 1? It's a sample library which includes midi notes for each sample so you can use your own instruments etc.

    Just been flicking through it and the "anthem" loops are basically what made up an entire Calvin Harris song. It's an absolute blatant rip off and he must have just copied and pasted the samples one after the other to make up the song. Even the instrument sounds etc sounds very near to the same (probably is with a bit of mastering on top).

    Also, I'm Not Alone is just a blatant variation of Saturate by the Chemical Brothers.

    Very disappointing!

    Tw@t!
    Ableton 9.7.5, Native Instruments Komplete Ultimate 11, MOTU 828 Mk2, Nektar Impact LX61+, Ableton Push, Native Instruments Kore 2, and a random selection of soft synths and sample libraries.

    My friend and I were browsing through Prime Loops packages and those are all just Lil Wayne songs.

    Artists do it all the time

    I saw him DJ a while ago, he wasn't bad... much better than Kele from Bloc Party who was before him, he was absolute shit. I was genuinely angry.
