8 Best EDM Sample Packs in 2021 (100% Royalty Free)

“What are the best royalty free EDM sample packs in 2022?”

EDM (Electronic Dance Music) is a fairly broad term, ranging from big house club tracks to dubstep, trap and techno. Generally speaking, any genre made largely for night-club, rave or festival settings can be considered EDM.

Over the last decade or so, EDM has become an incredibly popular choice for both beginner and advanced producers. This is primarily due to the global explosion of EDM in mainstream music. There is also an almost endless amount of creative possibilities due to the versatile, synth-based nature of the genre, making it very attractive to music producers.

If you’re an EDM producer, or just starting out, you’re going to need some good quality, royalty free EDM sample packs. I’ve downloaded more than enough sample packs over the years to know which ones stand out from the rest and which are just not worth your time or money.

1. HY2ROGEN – Sound of the Future Bundle

The first entry on this list is an absolutely enormous sample bundle from Hy2rogen, including 6 popular, high-rated EDM sample packs.

With over 1850 files included, you get every sonic element you’ll need to create professional-quality EDM music.

If you’re looking to add an oriental element to your tracks, this royalty free sample pack by IQ Samples should definitely be on your radar.

It contains a fantastic range of middle-eastern-style synth melodies, pounding bass loops, FX impacts / sweeps, and much more.

This pack definitely isn’t for everyone, and applies to a specific style of EDM production. However, if you’re after a unique, oriental EDM sound, this one is definitely worth checking out.

Best Royalty Free House Drum Sample packs 2020: Complete

3. Wave Alchemy – Complete Drums

“Complete Drums” is an absolutely gargantuan sample pack for house, Techno, EDM, DnB, Dubstep, Deep House, Trap and pretty much any electronic music genre imaginable. This pack contains a staggering 34,000+ royalty free drum and percussive sounds, giving you everything you could ever need to create electronic beats.

I remember downloading this pack and begin absolutely floored by the expansive, meticulously organised samples inside. The sounds are also incredibly professional and have a beautiful sonic clarity that is more or less unmatched in other house/electronic drum sample packs.

Because of the sheer volume of content in this pack, the price is significantly higher than any other product on this list, but if you’ve got the money to spend, this will transform the way you produce electronic music. Here are some official reviews for this pack:

Seriously, I batter the s**t out of your sample packs. They are fantastic!” Chris Lake

Ultimate EDM vocal sample pack

4. HY2ROGEN – Ultimate Vocal Collection

This royalty free sample pack is another fantastic collection of EDM sounds from Hy2rogen, this time focusing on vocal loops and one-shots.

From shouts/phrases leading up to a drop, to catchy vocal hooks, vocals are a hugely important element in EDM music, and can really breathe life into your production. This sample pack includes materials covering a huge range of production styles, and as always the sound quality is next level.

In the words of Hy2rogen, expect to find “quirky vocal loops, rhythm-tied rap lines, female vocal bits and bursts, mainroom tension builders, techy glitched vocal grooves, stuttered and syncopated toppers”.

Additionally, this sample pack is HUGE. With just under 7000 WAV files and 5.3GB+ of content, there’s no doubt you’ll find mountains of inspiration within this vocal collection.

Awake sample pack

5. Aubit – Awake Vol 1

“Awake Vol 1” from Aubit is an all-encompassing sample pack including modern, smooth pads, razor-sharp synth leads and crisp, layered drums.

When compared to the EDM sample packs above, this pack is aimed at dreamier, modulated styles of electronic production such as future bass or progressive house. I’d highly recommend this sample pack if you’re looking to create uplifting, immersive music similar to Flume or Odesza.

The standout part of this pack is undoubtedly the synths. The variety and quality of synth presets and samples is outstanding, from lush, smooth keys to heavy, modulated, heavily filtered pads.

This royalty free EDM sample pack also contains a decent selection of Massive and Serum presets to a little added sonic inspiration.

8 Best EDM Sample Packs in 2021 (100% Royalty Free) EDM grande

6. Zenhiser – EDM Grande

EDM Grande is a perfect choice for beginner producers due to it’s selection of song starters, with individual audio stems included. These song starters cover a broad range of genres including modern EDM, House, Progressive House, Big Room and more.

Many producers don’t enjoy working with song starter stems, as it can often reduce the creative freedom of music production. Personally, I prefer working with raw one-shots and occasionally loops, but for beginners I can absolutely see the appeal.

That said, the sound quality and consistency of Zenhiser sample packs is really impressive. So if you like working with song stems, I’d highly recommend checking this pack one.

8 Best EDM Sample Packs in 2021 (100% Royalty Free) One shots

7. Hy2rogen – 28000 One Shots

This EDM sample pack includes a jaw-dropping 28,000 one shots, including drum hits, synth cuts, vocal shots and much, much more. This immense collection is so, so useful for finding almost any EDM one-shot you can think of, and the sound quality is pretty spectacular too.

To break this down, you get 32204 total files broken down into: 28753 WAV one shots that contain 19708 drum hits (4668 kicks, 3851 hi-hats, 4015 percussion hits, 3969 claps & snares, 3205 misc drum hits), 4832 synth shots, 4212 vocal glitch shots) and 3451 software sampler files for EXS24, Kontakt, NNXT, Halion for easy access and usage.

I highly recommend this sample pack to almost any EDM producer looking to massively expand their sample arsenal with an endless supply of high quality one-shots.

You may have noticed this is yet ANOTHER sample pack by Hy2rogen (we promise we aren’t sponsored by Hy2rogen, we just love their products!)

Best 808 sample packs: Universal 808 kicks

8. Zenhiser – Universal 808 Kicks

“Universal 808 Kicks” sample pack absolutely had to be included on this list for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the sound quality and sonic character of the 808 kicks is sublime. When browsing through the 808s in this sample pack, it is immediately apparent that a lot of care and perfectionism has gone into each sound, and the work has paid off.

The second reason I had to include this part is the incredible variety of 808 sounds. There are sounds in this pack that would be perfect for trap, future bass, dubstep, movie FX and countless other EDM music genres.

This pack contains a whopping 300 bass drum sounds, many sampled directly from the Roland TR-808 and then edited to create new, unique sounds.

Expect to find a diverse range of short, short (layered), medium, long, “falling” and FX 808 sounds in this pack.
