The Wavediggerz

What's good Wavediggerz family. Just wanted to put you on to some good sources for free samples. Its probably our most asked question, 'Where can I get sounds for free?' or 'where can i get free royalty free sounds?'. Just for the record we're not talking downloads or cracked software here, we are talking 100% free bonafide original samples. So here goes.


1. SampleRadar

The hub page for MusicRadar's regular giveaway of pro-quality, royalty-free samples. You can find a lot of really usable stuff here. Have a dig thru and let us know what you find. We were particularly pleased with their atmospheric samples, dystopian drones, lo-fi drums and some of the retro video game samples were a lot of fun to play around with. Definitely something here for everyone. Check it out link.


2. Samplephonics

Next up we have a strong collection of free royalty free samples from Samplephonics. They have snippets of their full version loop and sound packs meaning you can get your hands on some sounds, samples, presets & instruments in lots of different styles.

4. The Converse Rubber Tracks Sample Library
