The MsP Production Vault

If you're like us, then you've probably googled many times for different samples, sounds, VST effects, VSTi's, DX effects, or whatever else you can get your hands on to help you get that particular sound you are looking for in your production.

To help you aspiring producers (and even those established ones who are looking for more stuff), every week I will post some stuff from our vaults over here, free for download! Of course, I won't be able to help you guys much in the ways of getting free software (google, rapidshare, *ahem*) that shouldn't be free, but I'll try to provide anything I can. =]

PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT TAKE ANY CREDIT for any of the sounds that I offer here in the vault unless I specifically say that I made the sounds. These are all sounds that I've either searched for and found for free or given to me by other producers. I'm just lending a centralized location so that producers have a go-to spot for some free sounds. If there are any issues in regards to the sounds you find here, please e-mail to let me know.

If I find out that anything that I have up can still be bought by the original creator I will take it down. I have taken down a number of the drum sets and synths I have up due to this and will continue to do so to keep the vault clean. I'm not looking to take money out of anybody's pockets, I just want to help producers out.

To keep up with the production vault, make sure you sign up for the MsP Mailing List to get weekly updates on MsP news, song releases, blog updates, and what the vault is offering for the week!

2014.04.09 - Banger Drums 1
This kit has a feel of strength and aggression. The kicks are strong with hard attacks, with snares and claps to match. The percussion samples complement the drums well. These contrast from the short quick hits of the 808, and are more akin to drums chosen by producers like Timbaland, Danja, and you may even be able to use these drums for heavy electronic music like dubstep.

2014.03.26 - Breakbeat Loops and Drum Cuts
For those who like that classic hip-hop breakbeat sound, here are 34 breakbeats for you to mess with. The cool thing about this particular kit is that the loops are included as well as the individual drums that compose the beat, which were cut by the originator of this kit. If you just need some classic sounding drums, or if you need a good classic breakbeat loop to use as a whole, this is the kit for you.

2013.10.12 - Boi-1da Drum Sample Kit
Boi 1da is one of the producers that have been key to Drake's meteoric rise to success in the music industry. He's also done work for Eminem and others, and has garnered multiple grammy nominations and three wins with the aforementioned artists. This kit has drums from songs he has produced as well as samples that are consistent with his sound. As expected, the drums can be used for that Young Money style of sound, with over 1500+ drums to toy with.

2013.10.05 - Timbaland + Danja + Polow Da Don Drums
This week, I've got some Timbaland/Danja/Polow da Don drums for everyone, more than 250+ drums to run with. I associate all three of them together, so I found it fitting to bundle up these drums together. These drums are taken from songs they've previously done combined with drums made to sound like their particular style. The sound of these are a bit of a contrast to the lighter 808 sound that has been prevalent today.

This one's a really old version of T-RackS that I've used to help me master finished mixes. If you don't know how to master tracks or can't afford someone else to do it, you can use this app to maximize the sound out of your tracks. Later incarnations of this app include VST versions that you can use on your DAW's, so if you like this app, you may want to research the newer versions of T-RackS as well as other similar apps such as iZotope Ozone.

For you boom bap heads, I've got you covered this week. In the vault we've got the first part in a big bundle of all the classic funk breakbeats that our beloved hip-hop has been built upon and then some.

I'm sure some will be looking for the James Brown breaks, "Synthetic Substitution," "Impeach the President," and other notables, but they will be contained in one of the next parts of the bundle, and I will be releasing one part a week for the next few weeks.

For now, all you boom bap producers will have enough drums to cut from these 100 breaks.

Here's some more free VST Effects for those who need them in a pinch. The good folks at Blue Cat Audio have released this VST Effect set that includes a Chorus, Flanger and an EQ. If you're getting tired of your default effects, try these and see if they can get that sound you're looking for.

2011.01.27 - DSK Overture Orchestra VSTi
DSK Music puts out some decent free VSTi's, and this particular one is no different. The DSK Overture VSTi gives you 53 different orchestral instruments (spanning the four different instrumental families, strings, brass, woodwinds and percussion) with the ability to combine 4 of these for whatever desired orchestral sound you are looking for; definitely not bad at all for a free VSTi. The VSTi also has various sound envelope options, as well as delay, reverb and chorus options. This is probably one of the best free VSTi's I've ever had the opportunity to use and I'm sure my fellow producers (especially those starting out) will have no problem adding this one to your tools.

This is the biggest kit I've put up to date, weighing in at just short of 2000 drum samples. Lots of good sounds of all types in here, kicks, snares, hats, whatever you need. There's a bit of a digital feel to these, so they would fit more with the sound that's popular today.

2011.01.12 - DSK AkoustiK KeyZ Piano VST + 5 Borough Havoc Kit
For those needing a piano in a pinch, here's a nice little piano VST, courtesy of DSK. There's 3 different presets, Grand Piano, Concert Piano F, and Concert Piano P, as well as customizable tone/filter controls which include an envelope, reverb, flanger, and a filter that can be switched from low-pass to high pass.

For all you drum collectors, I have a kit that was in a folder called "hip-hop/rap," and just to give it a better name I called it the 5 Borough Havoc Kit. There's a couple of drum sounds in there that remind me of tracks from Mobb Deep's most famous album, The Infamous, so that's how I came up with the name.

There's over 600+ drums in there, so go crazy.

2011.01.05 - Percussion Samples and 31 MDA VST Effect Plugins
The percussion samples folder in this bundle has over 1500 different samples, all taken from non-conventional drumkit instruments, like congas, bongos, castanets, chimes, tablas, tambourines, bells, gongs, and more, all at very good quality. If you're looking to add something extra to your drum beats, you may find it in here.

On the other side of the coin, are 31 VSTi Effect plugins courtesy of MDA. There's a variety of different effects, from different delays to different filters, different vocoders, different stereo effects and different types of distortions. They are very simple to use, and if you need some effects away from the standard ones that come with your DAW, this may get you from point A to point B with some satisfaction.

2010.12.22 - Mad FX Kit and Voc One VSTi
The Mad FX Kit has got a bunch of dirty drum sounds as well as some strings, organs, vocal samples and different types of sound effects.

Also included in this bundle is the voc-one VSTi which is a simple choir VSTi. It's no Symphonic Choirs VSTi (a beastly VSTi, I might add), but it can get the job done in a pinch. There are controls in it to also change the vowel sounds of the voices to give you some extra leverage, as well as reverb, breath, and different tonal controls.

2010.12.15 - Banging Beats Kit + TweakBench VSTi Bundle
We have a bit of a hybrid bundle this week. Going back to our drum roots, we've got a decently sized kit of over 1,100 samples. The Banging Beats kit has over 200 kicks, 350 snares, and over 150 hats, plus some guitar, horn, string and piano samples. It should keep you busy for a while.

Also with this kit are VSTi's from TWEAKBENCH. TWEAKBENCH offers the VSTi's that are contained in this bundle for free on their site,, and they also do VST effects.

For those who need a quick 8-bit video game sound, the Triforce VSTi or Peach VSTi would be great. There's also a mellotron style synth called Tapeworm, a bass synth called Ritual and more. One VSTi that I thought was particularly nifty was the Field VSTi, which comes with 10 different sound ambiances that you could plug directly into your track that you can mix and match, all at good quality.

2010.12.01 - J. Mack's Dirty South Kit and 2 Organ VSTi Plugins
Producer J. Mack has contributed a drum kit to the vault this week. J. Mack's got production credits with Petey Pablo, Chopper Young City, Mia-X, C-Murder, and Don Trip (who recently signed with Cool and Dre).

This particular kit has a focus on the Southern sound, mostly 808 style drums as well as some instrument sounds and synths.

You can check out J. Mack's site at

In addition, I've included two organ .dll based VSTi's. One is a dedicated church organ, and the other is DirtBag, which has a quite a few presets for different organs, like Hammond and Rhodes.

2010.11.24 - AnalogX Scratch App
If you can't afford turntables, or can't get your record on vinyl to scratch, and you need to scratch vocals, this is the app for you. Courtesy of the good folks at AnalogX,this app allows you to load in 2 mono .wav files (one for looping, one for scratching). You can then record one or the other or both. You scratch by clicking and dragging your mouse on the wave shown playing on the interface. Once you've recorded your scratches (they come out in .wav format), you can do with them as you wish at that point.

Boom-bap producers who can't afford turntables, your welcome. =]

For an example, you can check out the most recent Black and Blue Ink. song we did, "Wordsmiths". The scratch of my boy Flight's vocals were done in this app.

2010.11.17 - dBlue Glitch VST Effect
This VST effect is an interesting one. It starts with it's 9 different individual customizable presets, "Tape Stop," "Modulator," "Retrigger," "Shuffler," "Reverser," "Crusher," "Gater," "Delay," and "Stretcher." Now any of these effects alone would be good for a variety of uses. The strength of this plugin is how you can use each of these at different sections of a bar, and come up with some interesting combinations.

Now for those of you who may be confused by what I'm talking about, if you listen to Game's "Put You on the Game" from his debut album, "The Documentary," (produced by Timbaland) and go to the end, you'll hear the beat go through different effects, like reversing, retriggering, tape stops, and the like. Coincidence? I think not. =]

I've most recently used this in a house/electronic song I did called "Casa de Luna," where the lead synth that plays during the beat change/chorus part is put through these effects.

2010.11.03 - Vinyl VST Effect
This one is one of my personal favorites, especially when making boom-bap beats. It allows you to insert vinyl effects. This great plugin from Izotope can control the amount of electronic and mechanical noise, dust and scratches on the simulated record, as well as filters that simulate the era that the record would be from.

If you're a 90's NY era style producer, and/or a fan of Premo, Pete Rock, et. al., then you're in for a treat with this.

2010.10.27 - TPS Module Brass VSTi
The first VSTi from the vault will be the TPS Module. This is a great sounding brass module with some presets that can get you going. If you're a fan of Polow the Don's producing, which has a fair share of brass, you should be able to use this VSTi with the quickness.

What's great about this kit is not only the actual brass sound you get, but you also get different ways the brass is played. There are multiple crescendos (brass starts low in volume and gradually gets louder and fuller with different characteristics) both quick and extended, nice accentuated brass hits with quick release, and you can even choose from individual brass instruments (french horns, trumpets and trombones) or groupings (ensembles, quintets) in those stylings. It's definitely enough to give your beats some added beef.

2010.10.13 - Thug Poet Kit and SIHD 1
We have two kits (and a small bonus) with this week's bundle, and it consists of the SIHD 1 kit and the Thug Poet kit. Thug Poet is a producer who has worked with Torch from Triple C's (Carol City Cartel of Rick Ross fame), Devin the Dude, Beeda Weeda, Chuwee from The Usual Suspects, Lefty Thefty, and others. He provided us with a kit that, although small in number, will get the job done in many boom-bap style cases. The drums come with a slightly noticeable hiss on them to give you that feel of old school vinyl, and the kicks have a hard punch to them. One thing you may notice is a lack of hats, but you can fill those in with either hats from the other kit in the bundle, or (what I think would be a great fit) would be the Deadly or Filthy Drum kits, also available below.

You can check out Thug Poet's blog by going to

The other kit is the SIHD 1 kit, which is a great kit with very clear sounding drums, which I guess is indicative by the HD in the name of the kit. This gives you some flexibility to go from newer styles where crystal clear recording studio quality is desired, or you can filter it up yourself and dirty it up for that old school flavor. There are some awesome punchy kicks in this kit that I personally use, and I'm sure you can find a use for them as well.

2010.09.29 - MPC-3000 Kit
With over 1500 drum samples, this is our largest kit uploaded to date, and is our most comprehensive. The usual stuff is in there (kicks, snares, hats), and you even get claps, castinets, various effects, percussion, tambourines, shakers, snaps, chimes, and more.

I'm guessing it's called the MPC3000 for the vintage Akai sampler, but I don't know if it's a sound set from the unit itself or bundled, or whether it's inspired from sounds that came with it.

2010.09.22 - Urban Warfare Kit
This kit packs 700+ samples, and a good thing about this kit is that it includes more than just drums. There's some saxophone samples, guitar samples, organ samples, horns and more. If you can't get your hands on VSTi's, the instrument samples can be useful in a pinch.

2010.09.15 - Dr. Dre Drum Kits
Another one of my favorite producers, Dre is notorious for that West Coast gangsta funk rap music of the 90's. Interestingly enough, on this kit some of the drums are slightly delayed (in the time sense, not the effect like an echo) to somewhat capture how doc's drums are not always precisely on beat to capture a bit of that funk.

I am aware that there is a Dre-mendous kit out there, and I haven't verified that these three kits are the same. It would seem likely though since there are 3 volumes in this bundle as well.

At over 700 samples, how can you go wrong? Start working on that bounce today by getting your drum foundation correct.

2010.09.08 - DJ Premier and Pete Rock Kits and Already Used Producer Drums
This bundle has three kits. The first two are inspired by two of the most legendary producers of hip-hop, DJ Premier and Pete Rock. Both of these kits contain dirty vinyl laced drums and some small instrument hits that are reminiscent of their styles. The Pete Rock one has some horn hits that give you a hint of Soul Brother #1.

The third kit is a huge kit, and it's a collection of drums I've cut from hip-hop tracks and other genres over the years. They range from Queen's "We Will Rock You" to various Neptunes-produced songs, to "Cupid" by 112, to many others.

The kit weighs in at 571 samples, so I'm sure you producers out there can put these to great use.

2010.09.01 - eLab Drum Kit
This kit is HUGE. There are over 1400 samples in this kit, and it's safe to say that a majority of your drums and percussion needs would be covered with this kit alone. Aside from the standard kick, snare, hats and claps folders, you have folders for crash cymbals, ride cymbals, separate folders for open and close hats, rimshots, shakers, tambourines, toms and congas. This is the biggest kit we have put up to date, and there's more out there still to share from the vault!

2010.08.25 - West Coast Hip-Hop Kits
A few weeks back we were in New York, and now we fly over to LA and hit you with these kits. Again, I feel that these drums can be used for a variety of applications, but they were categorized as west coast by the originator.

On the second kit that's on here, there's an instrument folder that definitely has a west coast feel to them. The bass sounds as well as the wah-wah'd guitars and other sounds should give you that g-funk sound you need for that west coast bounce.

This bundle weighs in at a little less than 500 samples, so it should keep you busy for a while.

2010.08.18 - DJay Cas Drum Kit
This kit comes from DJay Cas, a producer who has production credits with well-known artists such as Young Jeezy, Paul Wall, Yung La, Ice Cube, and others. Although this kit doesn't contain original drums that he has created/recorded/tweaked, he put it together from his stash for the sake of others to use.

He dropped this kit a long time ago on The Boards, and for me it's been quite useful. The marching band stuff, though few in number, were great to me and provided a different yet pleasing sound for kicks and snares. The vox folder also has some good vocal cuts to help hype up your records; many of which you've heard on hit records, from hey's to ow's and oh's.

At 701 samples, this kit should definitely keep you occupied for your next several production endeavors.

Make sure you follow Djay Cas at!

2010.08.11 - Neptunes Style Drum Kit
For fans of Neptunes production (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo), we have this drum kit in the vault. This kit has very hard and bassy kicks, with unique snare sounds and percussion. Some of these have been processed through different effects to match what you would tend to hear from a Neptunes beat.

Although lighter than the last few kits, this one still has almost 500 drum samples for you to mess around with.

Thanks to Bully Beats for giving me half of the drums in this kit! For those who haven't heard of Bully Beats, he has had production credits with Panjabi MC (of Beware of the Boys [Mundian To Bach Ke] with Jay-Z fame) and D-Block affiliates.

2010.08.04 - East Coast Hip-Hop Kits
Another decent sized kit, weighing in at over 500 samples. This one's focused more on a East Coast sound. Even though I feel these can be used for any type of hip-hop if used properly, whoever classified these initially felt it best for East Coast sounds so we'll go with that. These drums have a nice feel to them with a hint of aggression.

There are two different sets that are focused on "East Coast" on here. The first kit is the bigger kit, with separate folders for kicks, snares, hats, claps, percussion, and cymbals. The second kit is smaller, but also includes some toned instrument sounds and effects.

2010.07.28 - MPC 2000 XL Hip-Hop Kit
Another week for a big sample kit, this one has more than 700 samples. Some of these samples are tagged with AKAI MPC2000XL, so we're going with that for the title. For those who don't know, the MPC (short for Music Production Center) and its various models are frequently used samplers/sequencers by producers, especially by the hip-hop producer community. While at a producer forum in the city a few years back that featured DJ Premier, Evil Dee of Da Beatminerz and DJ Quik, both Premo and Dee (don't remember if Quik mentioned anything) mentioned how the MPC was a crucial tool in their production processes. I don't know if the MPC's came with pre-loaded sounds, but perhaps that is where these sounds come from. A lot of quality drums here; they can be used for a variety of hip-hop styles.

2010.07.21 - Filthy Drums and More 909's
After last week's huge set, we have an even bigger set for you guys today. We have the Filthy Drums kit which has a lot of great drum sounds including some hi-hat loops, crashes, percussion, shakers and some tambourines to add on to the necessities of kicks, snares and hats. There's even a specific folder for open hats which should help you producers looking for a good matching open hat to your closed ones.

In addition, I've added more 909's for you old school drum machine types. =]

If the 500+ kit from last week wasn't enough, this 600+ kit should give you some good ammo for your next several productions.

2010.07.14 - Deadly Drums and TR-909
Although the Deadly Drums kit is mostly a hip-hop kit, it has excellent drums in it for various applications. I'm sure this set will get you through quite a few beats/instrumentals. This is the biggest kit I've uploaded so far, weighing in at over 550 samples.

On top of this, I uploaded a TR-909 kit. For those who don't know about the TR-909, it was a drum machine developed by Roland circa mid 1980's. I found this kit around the time I started making beats around 2000. For those looking for a classic drum machine sound, I've got you covered here.

2010.07.07 - Club Hip-Hop Drums 2
Continuing on with the set I offered last week, here's the second set of club hip-hop drums, also found in the same thread from The kit is self-explanatory, and does very well for hip-hop or pop for the clubs and dancing.

As with the last kit, it weighs in at about the same at over 200+ samples for you to get your bounce on.

2010.06.30 - Club Hip-Hop Drums 1
Here's a kit I found on the forums one day when a generous poster hit everyone up with almost 30 or 40 different kits. This kit is pretty self-explanatory in terms of its application. It's a decently sized kit too, totaling a little over 200 samples.

2010.06.23 - Bully Beats Kit
Here's a contribution from Bully Beats, who has had production credits with Panjabi MC (of Beware of the Boys [Mundian To Bach Ke] with Jay-Z fame) and D-Block. He's got some good kicks, snares and hats in here, along with some good percussion and effects including an infamous DJ siren you should be familiar with. =]

Make sure you check out to check out more details on his production and services.

PLEASE NOTE: It has been brought to my attention that this kit is actually the M-Phazes Dirty 30 kit that Bully found, and he wanted to clarify that.

2010.06.16 - MsP ORIGINAL Acoustic Drum Kit, Timbaland Inspired Kit, and Hip-Hop Kit 14
This bundle's something special, since I'm offering an original kit of my own, combined with two other kits. The recorded kit was a Ludwig drum set recorded at Lunar Base Studio, with a Shure Beta 52A, Shure SM57 and Audio Technica 2020. It includes kicks, snares, hats, cymbals, toms, and claps/snaps.

In addition, a Timbaland Inspired Kit and Hip-Hop Kit 14 from the archive are also included. =] We're looking at 175 samples for you to mess with. Get to work!

2010.06.09 - Destroyer Kit 1, MC-303, and Hip-Hop Kit 13
This one's a nice sized bundle, weighing in at over 250 drum samples. We're continuing with our hip-hop kits with #13, and I've also added one of the Destroyer kits I have and a good number of drums from Roland's MC-303's Groove Box.

2010.05.26 - Hip-Hop Kits 7, 8 and 9
After the past month of instrument samples mixed in with our usual drum offerings, we go back to our numbered hip-hop drum kits as requested by some of our visitors. =] Here's three drum kits, no-nonsense hip-hop kicks, snares and cymbals/hats.

2010.05.19 - Lo-Fi Drums, Distorted Guitar, and Bass Samples
Here's some lo-fi drums. The thing I like about these drums is how they're filtered. They're good for classic hip-hop production, and if you like Timbaland's production work, his drums have a similar filter to them to make them sound dirty.

To add to these, I've also got disorted guitar and some more bass samples for you. All together, drums and all, we're looking at about 200 samples for you to mess around with. =]

2010.05.12 - Drums Layered with Acoustic Drumset Sounds and Piano Hits
Got some nice sounding drums for you guys today. These have a touch of acoustic drums in them for an added touch. I got these from a music hobbyist friend of mine who figured I could work with them. Maybe you can too!

In addition, here's some nice piano hits, sampled from random spots. Not exactly sure where these came from, but some of these are particularly nice if you like more of that 90's hip-hop. Cut up, these might work for some Premo style production, Marley Marl, you get the picture.

2010.05.05 - Philharmonia Strings, Reggaeton Drums, Hip-Hop Kits 5 and 6, and Random Effects
This week, we've got some nice string samples. Normally, I would suggest VSTi's like Symphobia or Cakewalk's SI-String Section, but if you can't shell out the money for those, you may be able to find some usage for these strings in a pinch. Different samples for different pitches so that's not a worry.

Also, though I've never done reggaeton production, I stumbled upon this set some years back when reggaeton was at a high point (the Daddy Yankee Gasolina era, Luny Tunes stuff), and also I have hip-hop kits 5 and 6 and some random explosion and gun effects to spice up that final mix.

2010.04.28 - 808 Bass Tone Kicks, Random Bass Samples, and Hip-Hop Kit 4
Here's a bass-heavy bundle for you guys. I got toned 808's for you South and club producers, and a nice load of other bass samples. And for those looking for drums, I've attached hip-hop kit #4! This bundle weighs in at 9MB, and runs close to about 240 different samples for you to play around with.

2010.04.21 - Hip-Hop Kits 1, 2 and 3
Going back to usual hip-hop production, I've got three kits here, totaling over a hundred drum samples, including kicks, snares, hats and cymbals. These three kits are from a set of 50 different hip-hop kits that I found on a website a long time ago. I found these kits to be pretty useful when I feel like doing something New York 90's style, especially kit #1.

2010.04.14 - Ethnic Percussion
Everyone loves that boom bap, but how about percussion outside of your usual kick, hat, snare? This week's drum kit drop is of the ethnic variety. Wood blocks, djembes, bells, congas, cabasas, and random other percussive instruments can be found in this kit, so if you're looking something a little away from the norm, this kit is for you. I found this set googling for djembes awhile back.

2010.04.07 - Soleternity BOTB5 Swipes Kit
Here's a set courtesy of the homie Soleternity. For those of you who don't know the homie Sol, he's got producer credits with over 20 gold/platinum artists and is continuously putting in work. Sol was gracious enough to donate this set to the vault and now it can be yours too for free!

Sol took part in Grind Time Now's Battle of the Bay 5 Producer Battle, and this is the set that he used to show the crowd the business. Weighing at about 50 different drum samples, Sol's got some very quality drums in here that I'm sure you producers out there will greatly appreciate.

And if you want to catch up with the boy Sol, make sure you follow Soleternity's Twitter at

2010.03.31 - Complete Urban Flava
Here's a drum kit that my cousin Boy Gnyus of Gnyus Productions sent to me awhile back. I didn't give the set this name, the folder came with it when my cousin found it. There's more than 300 samples in here, and unfortunately they're not organized by type (kick, snare, etc.). They are grouped together to make a kit, however. For example, you'll have a kick called "50 BD.wav" then a clap called "50 Clap.wav", etc.
