Hello Petri! I have been reading from your site for a couple of months now, looking up tutorials and tricks. This is the first comment I’ve left on the site. How To Make Electronic Music is single-handedly the greatest site for electronic music tuts. I also love that you recommend VST synth & effects plugins, and hunt down all these free (royalty free) samples for us. I am mainly producing both Regular and Electro House music, and 3xOsc is usually my leading synth. Are there any plugins or effects you recommend (preferably free) to do House bass, chord stabs, or… Read more »

thanks alot for these free kicks i will be using them alot


nice kicks thanks


how can i download this package kicks …. everytime i try to download it. it sends me to another website. am i doing somthing wrong?

Petri Suhonen

i just did but it say’s “Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage”
but my internet connection works just fine … well i guess im the only one that cant download shit.

Petri Suhonen

Sorry to hear that…

I don’t know what could be the problem… It works alright here.

I think it might be cuz IE thinks the .rar file is a web page, and doesn’t download it. You could use a download manager, another browser or maybe try to do a File->Save (and name the file with a .rar extension)


Right click and choose save link as?


Try doing this:

Right-click on the link :

Choose “Save Link As” or “Save Target As” or whatever similar option is given.

Choose the folder where you want to save it.

Click OK

It should start downloading.

PS: Download Google Chrome or something. Nobody uses Internet Explorer anymore. It’s a bad bad bad browser.


I use chrome and still it dosent open

,,good quality kick drums´´

everyone can say that, some infos would be great what kind of gear were used and so on…


if there are no infos about the sample source its to risky to use them

Petri Suhonen

I need to ask from Markus as I’m not sure what kind of gear he used to create these.


No risk at all.
Count how many ppl made 808-909-303 banks and sell them…they don’t pay a single dime to Roland if they don’t use their product’s name in their own product’s name.
Even drum loops are over-used on countless records…not a single person paid back as far as i know.

With melodies or full parts, it is another story…

Vengeance started making money with kicks riped from other artists records…we all know he is not in jail 😉

Hi guys, Thanks for the feedback. The kicks are made on scratch. And when I am saying that they are made on scratch, I mean they are synthesized. Simple sine wave, which is pitched to some key. Like G-note is 49hz, A-note is 55 hz, and so on. Everyone can do it. Example, take a look at infected mushroom kick drum tutorial. That shows you how to make a kick, or at least body for it. Then they are layered to other sounds, like noise, hihats and percussions – what ever sounds good. Usually, your mind should tell you what… Read more »

Thanks for the clarification, Markus!

Markus. Wow, u sound so professional. I can’t imagine someone using just those few items u mentioned to do a lot. I bookmarked ur page. I’m challenge. I will be learning a lot from u. But I use logic pro 9. How can u assist me wit advice on my synths and Fx? Its a great software but I’m short of synths and FX for house mix and dance. Thanks I wait for ur Reply


Big thanks for the awesome kicks!
But I think many people have the same problem here. How do you play any of your samples on FLstudio? When I drag your sample to sequencer/sampler there is no graphical wave displayed or sound heard…


I managed to download the files and they play just fine when I preview the kicks in Quicktime player…but when I try to load them into my DAW (Reason), it says the files are unsupported. This seems to be happening to a lot of people. Can somebody please shed some light, it would such a shame to let these kicks go to waste!!!


Thanks a lot man!


thanks a lot

how do i download this for Mac?

Petri Suhonen


I think you need a .zip file opener for Mac, such as:


Very cool of you to do this, I needed these very badly


Hey Petri!! Thanks a lot for this website, I’m about to get on the music production and this is really helpful.

The point of this comment is that I cant use the kicks, I’ve downloaded it, extracted it and played it on the windows media player and its all right trough this point. But when I try to use any of them on a project, the kick doesn’t make sound at all, this happens with everyone of them. Help please! I want to use some of this great stuff



Thank you Petri!


Sounds goos, thanks!
