What's better than a load of piano samples? A load of broken piano samples, of course!

Get ready for the sound of strings, scrapes, knocks and more; you could say that this is a piano library for people who don't like pianos...

What you need to know

The broken piano samples are divided into four folders: Loops, Multis, Processed and Raw.

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