SampleRadar: 204 free world music samples
It's not just common-or-garden instruments that SampleRadar has a penchant for, as this collection of sounds demonstrates.
Click the download link below and you'll soon be experiencing the delights of the bodhran, jaw harp, thumb piano and udu.
What you need to know
The world music samples are split into four instrument-themed folders of hits and loops. The BPM for each loop is listed in its file name.
All the samples are supplied as 24-bit WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice. Because they're royalty-free, you're welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like - all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.
The world music samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
