In this SampleRadar we explore the synth (and drum synth) side of kosmische musik, or 'krautrock' as it came to be known.
A whole host of synths and processors was used to 'Kraft' these sounds, which are still relevant today.
What you need to know
The krautrock samples are supplied in three tempo-themed folders, and there's a bonus folder of drum hits.
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 krautrock tools samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
