MusicRadar has announced the release of 301 free percussion loops, a collection previously featured on Computer Music magazine’s cover DVD.

Your rhythm tracks needn’t just be about kicks, snares and hi-hats. If you want to make them a little more interesting and varied, throwing in some percussion loops can help enormously.

Luckily for you, SampleRadar has a slew of shakers, snaps, bells and tambourines for you to drop in, as well as a few more unusual percussion elements.
What you need to know

The collection is split into 11 folders, each of which is labelled according to the type of percussive material it contains or the tempo of the loops within it.

All the samples are in 24-bit WAV format and work perfectly in any DAW or sampler. They’re royalty-free, you’re welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like.
