With that in mind, we've focused on swung and skippy rhythms in putting together our latest free sample pack, collecting a variety of swinging, shuffling loops to lay down in your next track. Inside, we have beats from an Arturia DrumBrute Impact, Oberheim DX, Volca Drum and Roland Aira TR-8, alongside grooves that capture the sought-after swing of the Akai MPC60.
What you need to know
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 samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
