100 Awesome Free Kick Samples By Markus Hakala

100 Awesome Free Kick Samples By Markus Hakala

Clean and punchy kick is probably the most important element in majority of electronic music. With that said, Finnish producer Markus Hakala is sharing an awesome collection of free kick samples made by himself.

In total there’s 100 kick samples in this package and they are aimed for any EDM genre that requires punchy kick drums.

Here’s some details of the samples:

  • Clean 32 bit samples
  • Made from scratch (clean low end)
  • Kicks are labeled to the note where they are made on (like kick 08 F#).
  • Aimed for progressive house / deep house / minimal / tech style.

Personally, I have to say that these are very good sounding kicks and they actually rival many commercial kick drum sample collections out there!

  1. Are the kicks copyrighted so that one can’t use them within commercial music productions?

    • i don’t think you can copyright a kick.. under the 15 second fair use.. as soon as someone does, another will filter it and call it their’s.

      • There’s no such thing as a 15 (some even say 30) second rule. Anything you do from scratch (no matter if it’s a single sound, drum loop, image or a game) automatically has a copyright. No need to explicitly claim it. It’s up to you as a copyright holder if you tolerate that others took your work for their own production or if you sue them.

  2. Hi there,

    I just wanted to say thank you because there are some great kicks in there. I will give them a try. Also thanks to Petri for making all these tutorials. They are a nice starting point if you want to get into making music.



  3. Petri , your a good man sharing your knowledge with us. I’m just starting out and found this site when surfing for help. This place is awesome, so much to read and learn and put into practice, thank you for everything.

    Not to be critical or anything, but they don’t sound punchy to me, they sound clicky.

      Don’t get me wrong. They’re great samples, perfect for detroit techno. I really do like ’em a lot, they just don’t fit the “punchy” characteristic, that’s all.

        Then make them punchy!? Use a transient shaper or compressor with slow attack or whatever you like and punch off…

  5. Amazing collection of downloads and links!! I’m so grateful you provided me with these resources and i pretty much downloaded every single link and VST that you offered. Now that my library is about completed i can watch all the tutorials on here too! THANK YOU! πŸ˜€
