SampleRadar Advent Calendar

SampleRadar offers a new free sample pack every day until December 25th, 2021.

No, we don’t mean sampling endless YouTube videos or MP3s on your computer, but getting off your behind, hunting down a dusty record shop, wiping off an old, forgotten record, dropping the needle onto it, and hearing a crackly old sound that could be the basis for a whole track.”

Their free sound libraries are a goldmine of audio loops and samples for music producers. From jazzy loops to retro video game sounds and modular synth samples, you’ll undoubtedly discover a few gems for your collection.

  1. Thank you so much. Your work helps us a lot.

    Merry Christmas

  3. Alfredo Fernández


    This is a great page, as always bringing the best for us
    Good luck to all of you and I wish you happy holidays and a happy new year.

  4. Marco of Beat Magazine share a gigabyte of Moog DFAM drum samples for free

  5. Ableton Live Lite is free with latest issue of Computer Music (304). Anybody who has bought a MIDI controller probably already has it though

  6. Beat Magazine (no 193) comes with two AAS soundpacks of choice for free. These are often on sale, but at full price they retail at $39 each. Not a bad deal for €5 available to buy next week

  7. Didgeridoo sounds like it’d be awesome. Seems like Rast’s site is down though. In case anyone missed this and/or has the same problem as me, there is a free synthesized didgeridoo plugin that actually sounds pretty good from a plugin creator named Quilcom. It’s called SIM-DIDGE. Technically it gives you a lot more flexibility since it’s synthesized, but at a slight cost of authenticity/quality. You might be surprised how well a synthesizer can emulate it though, go check it out.

  8. “Stargate” is a recently launched Open-Source DAW. I searched and couldn’t find it listed on BPB. Could be interesting to check out:
