If you make electronic music, you probably need samples, and sooner or later the ones that come with the software you use will probably start looking limited. CDM have linked to a few places that have Creative Commons licensed collections you can use for free.
The closest weâ€™ve ever got to anything like this is playing for a while with a copy of Dance eJay we picked up cheap at PC World some time back. It was kind of fun, and it was surprising how easy it was to make something that sounded quite decent.
Well, if youâ€™re into techno type stuff, anyway, which weâ€™re not. Still fun, though, and worth a go if you can get the software cheap enough.
