We're nothing if not environmentally conscious here at MusicRadar, and what better way to do our part for the planet than to recycle our junk into music? You know how the old saying goes: one man's trash is another man's drum sample.
In that spirit, we've put together a collection of one-shots and loops using nothing but junk. Recording the bangs, crashes, whacks and wallops made by our trash, we've produced a set of percussive samples that sound anything but garbage.
What you need to know
All the samples are supplied as 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 samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
