These days music, especially in hip hop and trap, is often focussed on shaking a leg on the dancefloor. But there’s also the quieter times, when it likes to relax and have a nice sit down. We are big fans of the lo-fi sounds when it comes to headphone music. The following ambient samples are for exactly that type of chilled out situation…
For the first ambient samples pack, SampleRadar casually rifled though the vault marked ‘ambient’ and lackadaisically put together this calming collection. The samples are split into two construction kits of different tempi (80 and 120bpm). These contain arpeggiated synth, bass, drum, pad, Rhodes, guitar and other loops. Download (502MB)
Here’s one more. You might think that ambient sounds have a habit of sounding rather nondescript, but if you check out these ambient samples compiled by SampleRadar, you’ll discover that they can be just as characterful as more upbeat tones. Far more than lightweight tinkles, these are sounds that can be used in some serious productions. The ambient allsort samples are divided into four folders: Analog loops, Lengthwise loops, Processed vox and whisper sessions and Spherical loops. Download (486MB)
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. The ambient samples are supplied in a zip file, so you’ll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
