SampleScience releases Da Vinyl Box: A Free Hip Hop Production Pack

Pierre Parenteau from SampleScience has been researching and working hard to develop a set of sounds for hip-hop music production called Da Vinyl Box. This is a free collection of samples that were taken from various audio recordings and public domain movies. Once the audio parts were gathered, Pierre has transformed them into high-quality audio loops and has split them according to different BPM rates. Then, he prepared them to be used as hip hop samples.

The audio set released by SampleScience contains samples, beats and loops. It is free to use for anyone who wants to produce hip hop music, including commercial projects. All you need to do to begin using the samples is to integrate them into a sampler or DAW. In the audio package, the files are grouped into seven folders: breakbeats, music loops, bass loops, percussion, one-shot, FX and vocals. 263 audio samples and loops are available in the set. The majority of these loops include data about tempo and key information, and this can be great for anyone who wants to use them in a project or more.

What Pierre has managed to create is a set of sounds of an incredibly high quality despite the fact that downloading the pack is free of charge. The user will be amazed of the quality and diversity of sounds that can be found in the public domain. If you download the pack, you will get numerous drum loops, vinyl noise recordings, bass riffs, some amazing sound effects and cool percussive hits.

Da Vinyl Box can be downloaded from the official SampleScience website. The pack is free, but you are asked if you want to support the site by making a donation. You will receive the link to download the pack by email. Another great thing from SampleScience is the virtual instrument called Famicom that sounds like the old gaming console with the same name. This console is popularly known as NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). The instrument is commercial, but you can download a free version from Samples containing two free presets that are also available in the commercial version.


Da Vinyl Box is a zip archive of 132 Mb, and the files are 16-bit wav and can be downloaded from Samplescience

New Lo-Fi Samples Pack from Modern Samples

Modern Samples, the online place to find high quality drum samples has just launched their latest offering of over 200 lofi samples called Lo-Fi Drums Collection.  These sounds were professionally mixed and are ready for use in Trap, Hip Hop and modern pop music.  The original samples cam from drum machinecs and live recordings and were processed from there.

Inside the kit you get 13 Claps, 20 Crashes & Splashes, 32 Effected, 43 kicks, 43 percs, 23 perch low, and 35 snare samples.  All these samples were processed using the highest quality plugins, analog gear and “secret-sauce” as they would say.

Here’s what they had to say about lo-fi sounds in today’s music environment:

“Ever since artists like Kanye West, Drake, and the Weeknd have popularized the “lo-fi” sound it has crossed many genres like Hip-Hop, R&B, Pop and Rock music.  Working with top industry professionals, pop artists like Jessie J., Selena Gomez, Adele and even Taylor Swift have all been incorporating lo-fi drums into their songs.”

  • Modern Samples (Lo-Fi Drums Collection)

BONUS LOOPS – On top of the amazing lo-fi sounds that come inside this pack, you also get access to over 30 really high quality lo-fi loops.  These loops were added as a bonus add-on and they sound absolutely incredible.  In fact, the entire kit sounds great even though they are situational.  I would still recommend them for any producer/engineer to add them to their collection.


Check out the walkthrough video of the kit.


Lo-fi Drums Collection contains 209 one shots & 33 loops and can be downloaded via Modern Samples.  The lo-fi samples are all 24 bit, 44.1 kHz and are 100% royalty free.
