(Image credit: Future Music)

We know what you're thinking - not another library of 808 samples - but stick with us, as this one's a bit different.

It focuses on the 808 kick's potential use as a bassline instrument, giving you 21 sound sources that have been processed through five different effects chains.

What you need to know

The 808 weight samples are divided into six folders: you get the sources and then five sets of processed samples.

All the samples are supplied as 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 808 weight samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
