This set of samples is made up of 162 percussive loops recorded using a variety of non-standard percussion instruments, including a guiro, hand drum and shekere.
Perfect for spicing up your drum patterns, just drag-and-drop these into a beat for added rhythmic flavour.
What you need to know
The samples are split into five tempo-labelled folders.
All the samples are supplied as 24-bit 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 samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
