In tribute to Prince, the team at Samplephonics is giving away a set of 55 free one shot samples from his go-to drum machine, LinnDrum.

The samples are part of a commercial collection, offered previously for a price of £5. I have no information regarding how much time it will be given for free, so you will just have to take advantage of this offer asap (though the situation that caused this giveaway is not a happy one…). It’s great to see so many musicians united to pay homage to a great artist, and we just want to thank Samplephonics for being generous.

LinnDrum is a classic drum machine which helped define the sound of Prince, and even the sound of the entire 80’s decade. LinnDrum weighs a ton and has a distinct lofi sound.

This collection of 55 one shot drums is sampled from an original machine, and is perfect for those looking to add some vintage digital character to their sound.

If you haven’t figured out yet what it is about, listen to demo below:

The samples come preloaded in your choice of sampler instrument, including EXS24, Reason NN-XT, Kontakt, Ableton Sampler, Motu MachFive, Steinberg Halion and SFZ. All sounds and samples are 100% royalty free.
