SampleRadar: 254 free Radiosonics samples

Inspired by the output of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, we've put together a collection of idiosyncratic samples that can be dropped straight into your productions or used as starting points for further sonic exploration.

So, dig out your lab coat and get downloading...

What you need to know

The Radiosonics samples are divided into nine folders, each of which is labelled according to 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 Radiosonics samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
