Impact sounds are an essential part of today's electronic music landscape, serving as a way of adding instant interest to tracks.

We've got a wide range of hits, clanks, crashes and explosions for you, all ready to be dropped straight into your latest project.

What you need to know

The big impact samples are divided into nine folders, each of which is labelled based on the type of sounds contained within it.

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 big impact samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
