SampleRadar: 404 free Arabian nights samples

An almost deserted desert.
An almost deserted desert.

We're taking a trip to the Near East in this edition of SampleRadar, as we celebrate the sounds of the lands were civilisation began.

There's a strong percussive feel to our collection, but look out for some more melodic loops, too.

What you need to know

The Arabian nights samples are divided into five three folders: Beats, Drum Hits and 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 Arabian nights samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
