SampleRadar: 300 free trap samples

Inspired by the beatmakers of Southern rap, SampleRadar wants to help you to create your own cutting-edge trap productions.

Our collection contains plenty of low-end thump and high-pitched squeal, so dive in and download it.

What you need to know

The trap samples are divided into five folders: Beats, Drum Hits, FX, Loops and Stabs.

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