Free Samples & Loops

Samples and loops are a great source of inspiration for starting a new track. They can also be sliced up, warped and processed to create your own unique sounds. The websites listed below provide free audio files in the following categories:

  • Loops are short, repeating sections of music with a tempo measured in beats per minute (BPM).
  • One-shots are single sounds that are not looped e.g. individual drum hits (kicks, snares, cymbals).
  • Sound effects (also known as “Foley”) are recordings of environments, people, animals and objects.
  • Presets are banks of sounds stored in a specific format for VST synthesizers like Massive, Serum, Sylenth etc.

All the websites have terms and conditions stating how you can use the samples. Most are 100% royalty free and licensed for commercial use, but please check before you use them in a project.

You can filter the list by entering keywords in the search box. Click on the thumbnail images to enlarge.
