If you like your samples short and sweet, look away now, because we're focusing here on sounds that have been stretched and shifted out of their original sonic form.

We've got loops, drum hits, FX, atmospheres and more, so hit the download button and get your hands on some audio that's wild and woozy.

What you need to know

The retimed and repitched samples are divided into six folders, each of which is labelled according to the sounds contained within 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 retimed and repitched drama samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
