Free Djembe Sample Library

bioLogic has released a free set of Djembe samples:

“I’ve been wanting to get back into sampling instruments, so I snuck my cousin’s djembe, brought it over, and cooked up this little beast in HALion format.

I recorded and compiled it yesterday and today, and played it about 15 minutes once I tweaked it right. I’m loving the sound I managed to get out of it.”


  • 90 samples, 23.1 MB extracted.
  • Three velocity layers with 5 alternate strikes per layer.
  • Three articulations: bass, bass muted, slap (each with L and R samples).
  • Recorded with SM57 right under the base, and a Rode NT3 about 6? above the skin, all going through a Really Nice Preamp and into my M-Audio 2496.

You can download the Djembe samples here.
