Free music samples: download loops, hits and multis

52,985 free sample downloads

Great samples, for free.

Welcome to SampleRadar, the hub page for MusicRadar's regular giveaway of pro-quality, royalty-free samples. Here you can find links to all of our entries, which feature collections of loops, hits and multisamples in a wide range of genres. And the great news is that you won't have to pay a penny to download any of them.

The samples are supplied as WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW of choice. Because they're royalty-free, you're welcome to use them in your music in any way you like - all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.

All the samples originally appeared on either a Computer Music or Future Music magazine cover disc. Check out their latest issues for many more, but first, scroll through the links below (ordered alphabetically), choose your genre and get downloading!
