The archetypal gangster movie not only has a certain look, but it has a specific sound, too.

That’s what we’re celebrating right here, as we make you an offer that you can’t refuse. Download these samples with our blessing; when we want something back from you, we’ll be sure to let you know... 

What you need to know

The gangster sting samples are divided into seven main folders. Five are tempo-themed, and there are additional chord hit and loop folders.

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