Nothing can spice up a drum track quite like a bit of percussion, so SampleRadar thought it was high time it paid a second visit to the world of supplementary rhythm sounds.
There are loops, fills, and single hits; everything you need, in other words, to give your beats some bounce.
What you need to know
The drum breaks are split into three folders: Cajon, Conga and Djembe. Each of these contains loops, fills and hits played on that instrument.
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 percussion samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
