Gallery of Samples
« on: April 17, 2013, 10:01:06 AM »
Hello guys, I found this site a while back. I just thought I should share it here. I already have thousands of samples already, but it seems like this guys has more and he wanted to share them on his site.

Nice find I'm downloading them all right now lol. I'm always looking for new spots with free sound loops and drum kits / samples. I prefer composition based production vs. sampling but I've been thinking about switching it up and trying to get better at sampling. Everytime I go to make a beat from chops sampled from a song I end up adding so many other instruments that you can't tell what the sample was to start, but eventually I'll get it down and be a real sampler ;P

Don;t download them ALL! Lol Your computer will not be able to breath, because there will be no space left on it. I never like to use samples that are taken from a song that already exists, unless I am able to mix that sample in a way that disguises the original sample. I am also like that with loops and samples that I get from sample packs. Say I use a loop from a sample pack, I like to add reverb, or sidechain it and then mask it with other percussion, so that you can still hear it but you would never know that you had heard it before.
