WILD TO THE KORE EPISODE IV - 'HEAVYWEIGHT' Mix OUT NOW

LISTEN HERE

XKORE'S FOUND SAMPLES PAGE

A collection of useful audio samples and sample packs I've found around on the internet. All Free and readily downloadable.

None of this stuff is 0-day or pirated material. Only found and free samples, but legality is still obscure for some of this stuff so use it creatively, and beware that samples from a source that isn't explicitly clear for use are not meant to be used commercially.

If you know any good ones to add, tweet me or something. Also follow my FB or Twitter for updates on when this list is updated. This page isn't linked anywhere so it might be useful to bookmark it if you want to check it regularly.


POP MUSIC MOGG FILES

Still need to look into this but apparently these are huge packs of compressed stems used in popular tracks. Obviously legality issues but fun to play around with nonetheless.

Retro VIdeo Game Sound Effects and Voice Packs

Ok this is a bit of work, but it's worth it if you want to have some good retro video game sound effects and vocals.

These videos require you to rip the audio using any youtube to mp3 converter, then use whatever audio editing program you use to auto slice each sample, then bulk save them to a folder.

Not clear for commercial use, but cool to play with nonetheless.
