SampleRadar is channelling the spirit of Detroit this week, as it takes another trip to planet techno.

This time, it's atmospheric loops we're dealing with, all of which are designed to give your techno tracks that little bit of extra character.

What you need to know

The samples are all supplied in a single folder.

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