    35 free drum loops (WAV + MIDI) for hip hop, pop and rock


    35 free drum loops is a collection of loops aimed at hip hop, pop, and rock music and is provided in both WAV and MIDI versions for more flexibility.

    We know it’s a long time since the last FLSM freebie, but with this release, we just started a new series of sample packs, tutorials and project files. So stay tuned!

    The drum loops were created in FL Studio, using three free plugins, an instrument and two effects. The plugin responsible for the overall sound is the amazing MT Power Drum Kit 2 sampler, a powerful and realistic drum kit offered for free by Manda Audio. We opted for this plugin for its flexibility and why not, because it’s free and accessible for anyone. To be honest, our main focus was to create MIDI files to be loaded in your favorite sampler, to add your own sounds and to make your own customizations. But that does not mean this plugin does not deserve attention, we highly recommend it in your arsenal, you can download it here for free.

    The second plugin is Plektron Comp4, a free 4-band compressor, which allows to manipulate the dynamics of sound on individual tracks, a perfect tool to beef-up the drums. Speaking of dynamics, we also used the recent Violent Transient by Bitsonic for that lively and human feel.


    • 35 MIDI loops;
    • 35 WAV 24-bit loops;
    • all WAVS normalized;
    • 90MB extracted;
    • royalty free.

    The drum loops are split into three folders, each of which is labelled according to the BPM. There are 15 loops at 80 BPM, 10 loops at 100 BPM and another 10 loops at 120 BPM. Each folder contains the WAV and MIDI versions, so in total there will be 70 audio files. Each of the 35 loops is a different take- from hip hop rhythms to alternative rock fast drumming and more.

    Audio demos:










    All samples and audio files included in this pack are 100% royalty-free, meaning that you can use them in any commercial release. All we ask is that you don’t redistribute the sounds in actual form, bundled or as single files. Enjoy!
