Bvker has announced the release of DJ Spinz 808 Alternatives, a free sample pack containing 808 one-shot samples.

The Spinz 808 is probably the single best-known sample among Trap producers. It has a decent transient, rich low-end, a tiny bit of noise, and harmonic overtones, so you can hear it on smaller speakers. The problem? It’s so overused that I honestly wouldn’t recommend using it anymore (except you want to sound exactly like everyone else).

However, we wouldn’t make this post without offering a great alternative or more precisely: 20 FREE alternatives. That said, we got ourselves a copy of the infamous DJ Spinz 808, dragged it into Ableton, listened carefully, and eventually came up with 20 one-shot samples, which all have quite similar sound characteristics.

All the samples are normalized and tuned to C; they’re all royalty-free, meaning you can freely use them in commercial productions. There are 20 808’s inside, suitable for Trap, Hip Hop, or any other genre where you need a solid low end.

The download is free and instant (registration not required) at Bvker.
