Instantly inspiring WAV File Libraries for Download!
WAV files are the most universal of all file formats. They don't do anything clever in themselves like match your song tempo or anything of course but you should be able to load them into any music software on Mac or PC without any difficulty. Of course some libraries are only available in WAV format if they are not loop/performance-based and don't benefit in any way from being sliced up in any other more advanced format. So it's not always the poor relation of other formats out there - for some libraries it's the perfect option and you're never going to have any compatibility issues either. Check out out free WAV samples to download to help find the best sounds for your productions too!

More info on the Producer JJ is best known for being a founder of innovative sample pioneering 80s band Art of Noise. Art of Noise was essentially JJ, Anne Dudley, and Gary Langan with ZTT overlords Trevor Horn and Paul Morley contributing production and PR skills to the core musicians. Tracks such as 'Moments In Love' and 'Close (to the edit)' are benchmarks in the evolution of sampling and remain classics to this day. After their initial successes the musicians broke away from ZTT and took to producing tracks with well-known icons such as Max Headroom, Tom Jones, Dan Ackroyd, and Duane Eddy. JJ has also been involved remixing artists such as Stephen 'Tin Tin' Duffy, Shakin' Stevens (!) and more recently has been engrossed in the worlds of film, TV, advertising and multimedia.
Review Highlights "For a collection of odd noises and use-able instruments, this CD is ideal...a refreshing change. 8/10." - Future Music "Nice to see serious samplists being catered for...seriously classic...classic...well atmospheric...Quirky...Slice Of Sampling History." - Sound On Sounds "Un rendez-vous a ne pas manquer. Five Stars." - Keyboards (France)
