    Hi, so as the title says, I'm making a free sample pack for you guys, what would you prefer is in it?
    Atmos, bass etc.. is a given, but how about weird fx foleys and synthesized samples?

    It will probably get most use for neurofunk and experimental music, seeing that is what I produce myself : ).

    Can't wait to read your input!

    I'm thinking, putting it in organised folders by type then (for examples) SBC_FOLEY_003_F2

    A folder of pigeon coos would be handy.

    Well, I like to make my own basses and drums, so anything else! Foley is always good. Moody atmospheres too.

    can't ever go wrong with drums, percussion and basses...
    but what I really can't find easily are some (as mentioned) atmospheres, fx that fit dnb (not the cheesy vengeance stuff), deep pad stuff...

    It would be cool to see some snare samples and maybe some atmos stuff. But yeah it helps a tone when they have the labeled key.

    Definitely snare samples, I find they can really make or break a track. And as the first commenter said, organised sample names! Look forward to seeing what you come up with

    Drums should be interesting, I'll have to learn how to synthesize them with fm8!
    Will take a few months for this to be done though, but I'll make sure it's worth it :).

    dont make too many folders.

    do a drum folder. not a snare folder with 3 snares in it, and another subfolder with 3 more.

    practicality etc.
