A stab sound might be short, but used in the right place, it can have a big impact on your track.
We've put together a large collection of stab samples, including bass, guitar, horn, string, synth and percussion sounds.
What you need to know
The stab samples are divided into three folders: Misc, Percussive and Synth.
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 stab samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
