Sample Packs

When you’re ready to take your productions to the next level of quality, go to to get some seriously professional sounding samples – that’s where I get mine : )

NOTE: If you’re having trouble downloading the sample packs, make sure you’re right clicking, then going “save as” – sometimes just clicking them makes them open with lots of garbled text in your browser!

If you’re struggling to open the sample packs after downloading them, click here for my video tutorials explaining how to do so!

Free Sample Packs:

Convenient Hardstyle Sample Pack
