Dim the lights, fire up the popcorn maker (you know – the one that you got two Christmases ago and never use) and kick the idiot in front of you for talking on his mobile phone. That’s right: SampleRadar is going to the movies. More specifically, they’re giving you a collection of royalty-free movie soundtrack samples that are ideal for use in soundtrack work, but we think they’ll also slot perfectly into your standard compositions, too.
The samples are split into two folders: Sci-fi & Fantasy and Suspense & Horror. Each of these contains further folders that are labelled to indicate the type of sounds featured within them (atmospheres, bass, beats, FX, synths etc). 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 movie soundtrack samples are supplied in a zip file, so you’ll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
