This drum kit is so fun and it contains 513 one-shots for you to use. Even though downloading it requires registering on the Samplephonics website, it’s totally worth it!
The drum kit is meant to be used for Hip Hop and Rap music, but you can use it for any genre you please as the sounds are so diverse.
11. FPC Free Kits
Size: 568MB Sounds: 3364 Download
This last addition to this list is only for people who’ve purchased any version of FL Studio.
You get 120 free drum kits to use within FL Studios FPC plugin, but you can also use the Wav files as normal samples by importing them into FL Studios browser. Nonetheless, you’re going to give yourself a ton of new drums if you download this, and I’m talking about every drum you can think of.
There are so many bad drum kits around the web, and many have a hard time finding the good stuff. I recommend Loopcloud if you want to find drum kits and don’t have the time to search the whole internet. Loopcloud lets you download and search for samples in its 4 million sounds library.
To use it, just drag and drop samples from Loopcloud into FL Studio, it’s that simple. When you use the free trial, you get plenty of credits which you can exchange for free samples of your choice.
