Most of these are original samples that I have made myself (except those in the
movie and TV section). Where a sample has been produced by someone else I credit
them in the sample description. If you want to check out the software that I have
used, see my free audio resources page. All samples are saved as16 bit wav files,
and are either 22,050 or 44,100 mhz. Please feel free to use these samples in
your own music, but credit me where possible and send me a copy of the finished
product if you can, I'd love to hear it.
Because this page is getting cluttered with samples, I'm making your life and
my life a little easier by organising samples by category. Use the navigation
bar in the frame on the left to find you way around, or choose your poison below...

feel free to contribute your own samples to this page. Original samples only please,

archives on the net? Scroll down... If you know of a good sample page on the internet
send me the url and I will add a link to it.
