Is there room in the world for another collection of drum loops? Of course there is.

This bundle of beats features a cast of drum machines, but the rhythms have been given a human touch.

What you need to know

Each of the cyborg beats samples has its tempo in the filename, along with the name of the gear used to create it.

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