MusicRadar's great sample giveaway begins
Welcome to SampleRadar, MusicRadar's new weekly giveaway of pro-quality, royalty-free samples. We'll be offering you loops, hits and multisamples in a wide range of genres, and you won't have to pay a penny to download any of them.
Our first theme is dubstep, the much-talked-about style that features elements of garage, grime and 2-step. One of the great things about dubstep is that you don't need loads of gear to create it – in fact, many of the scene's most prominent producers make their music at home using little more than a computer and some software.
This being the case, pretty much anyone can try their hand at dubstep, but to give you a leg-up, MusicRadar is offering you 342 royalty-free samples for nothing.
What you need to know
The samples are split across five construction kits, each of which contains beats, basslines, synths and more. Use them together or pick and choose just one or two loops – it's completely up to you.
All the samples are supplied as 24-bit WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW of choice. Because they're royalty-free, you're welcome to use them in your music in any way you like – all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.
The dubstep kits are supplied as separate zip files, so you'll need to extract them before you can see the samples. Enjoy!
