About Us

Ueberschall is renowned for providing the highest quality loop libraries, samples and sound effects. We constantly strive to exceed our own high standards and invest in technology and equipment to deliver productions that can truly be called state of the art. Careful and competent sound engineering, including precise microphone selection and placement, ensures that all Ueberschall products are created with dedicated focus. From pre-production to recording, from precise editing to final quality control, it can take several months before a product is released.


There are currently over 200 products available for download from the Ueberschall website, covering over 40 different genres. Libraries range from live recordings, programmed beats, sound effects and scoring tools to a wide range of dance music styles. In short, a complete range for professional use! All Ueberschall samples are 100% royalty free and 100% copyright clean!


Our journey began in 1987 when Ueberschall was founded by Uwe Kinast. The first sample libraries were released on floppy discs for the famous Akai S1000, followed by releases on audio CDs and CD-ROMs in various formats such as WAV, AKAI or EXS 24. Along with the first DVD releases, we started to develop our own software players, which eventually led to the creation of Elastik. Today, all products are available for digital download from our website worldwide. Ueberschall has produced high quality content for many international hardware and software manufacturers. Ueberschall samples have found their way into hardware synthesizers, DAWs and iOS apps.


Since 2001, Ueberschall has focused on loop libraries and plug-ins. Our own sample player, Elastik, offers a sophisticated tagging system for managing multiple libraries of different genres. This innovative concept allows for a completely new understanding and handling of audio loops. Elastik is finding its way into productions of all styles, by professionals and amateurs alike. The results of using our award-winning libraries can be heard around the world in countless tracks, movies, TV films and commercials.


Ueberschall's core team consists of CEO and Founder Uwe Kinast, who has put his stamp on many of our products. Julian Liedtke (customer support/product management/editing/production) is on hand to help you with any problems you may have and to ensure that every product has precise edits and perfect loops. In addition, a number of external producers and musicians contribute to our products, all of whom are outstanding in their field or genre.
