We're all for producing music 'in the box', but when you want to add a bit of grit and character to your sounds, nothing beats sending them through a real amp.
And that's exactly what's been done to the samples in this week's collection: it offers re-amped bass, drum and guitar loops in four different styles.
What you need to know
The samples are split into four tempo-labelled construction kits: Dub, Jazz, Experimental and Funk. Each of these contains drum, bass and guitar 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 amped samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
Dub drums (60bpm)
Jazz bass (120bpm)
Experimental tone (100bpm)
Funk guitar (100bpm)
