Sample Magic continues its series of freebies with another collection of vintage sounds – 107 free 808 drum samples.
I say another set of vintage sounds, because a few days ago I wrote about a sample pack of LinnDrum samples, courtesy of Sharooz, one of the guys behind the Sample Magic label. If you are interested in these samples, then here is the link for you.
Back to the present release, the free 808 drum samples are supplied in 24-bit WAV format and they’re 100% royalty free. The cool factor of the pack is that it features every sound at every possible tone and pitch. You will have all what Roland’s famous TR-808 drum machine has to offer.
In depth, 808 Samples – Free Pack contains 15 snares, a rimshot, 8 toms, a cowbell, 5 open-hats, 6 closed-hats, a shaker, 57 kicks, a clap and a clave. These samples are suitable for a wide range of music genres, for example trap, hip hop, minimal, deep house, future bass and other EDM styles.
Each drum hit was painstakingly recorded through a high-end signal path, then captured via a Prism Orpheus sound card at 24-bit/44.1kHz and lightly processed via a Neve 1073 pre-amp.
In order to download the free 808 drum samples, first register at Sample Magic (if you don’t have already an account there), sign in, add the pack to basket, then check out. Your account will not be charged and you will not be asked for payment information. A free account at Sample Magic gives you also access to all the other free sample packs, such as Vintage Breaks, Dance Vocals Free Pack, but also free softsynth patches/sondbanks.
Keep in mind that 808 Samples – Free Pack is available as freeware for a limited time only. The download size is 3.34MB (ZIP compressed file).
