Don't fret: we've got lots of samples for you.
Don't fret: we've got lots of samples for you.

SampleRadar certainly likes its full-on electronic productions, but sometimes, all it wants to do is pull up a stool and have a play on its collection of acoustic guitars.

Hence this week's collection, which features loops recorded on a Takemine EAN45CX six string acoustic guitar, Yamaha FG-412-12 twelve string acoustic guitar and Terada six string (nylon) classical guitar.

What you need to know

The samples are split into two tempo-labelled folders: 85 and 120bpm. These contain mixes of several guitars, effected loops and single instrument loops.

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