We all know how useful the 'snap to grid' function can be, but we're also acutely aware that "it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing".
If you want to loosen things up, download this off-kilter pack of grooved-out, skittering loops and add a sense of feeling to your music
What you need to know
The Off the grid samples are divided into six tempo-themed folders of loops.
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 Off the grid samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
