SampleRadar: 303 free Hi-NRG samples

30 years ago, dance music sounded like this

Like everyone else in the music world at the moment, SampleRadar has decided to step back to the '80s to bring you a taste of the up-tempo, synth-powered genre that was Hi-NRG.

Think Ian Levine and Patrick Cowley and you're in the right ballpark: if it's retro dance sounds you're looking for, you've come to the right place.

What you need to know

The samples are supplied in five folders: four of these are tempo-labelled construction kits, while the fifth is filled with multisamples.

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 - all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.

The Hi-NRG samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!

Example sounds

Drums 132bpm

Arpeggio 130bpm
