The best sample packs for making ambient & chill music
If the autumn & winter season, where the days are shorter, the nights cooler and the sun is less visible outside the window, was to be reflected in the music genre, it would definitely be Ambient or Chillout music. Melodic waves, nostalgic mood, calm beat rather without vocal layer, and relaxing atmosphere. In such a short sentence you could describe these genres to a person who has never had the pleasure to listen to this-kind-of-vibe productions. Although ambient is rather far from being a mainstream genre and its popularity is not as great as it deserves – which we regret a bit – inspired by the release of the new Diplo ambient album titled ‘MMXX‘, we have prepared a list for producers with one of the best ambient & chillout sample packs, both premium and free. Also, don’t forget to check out our Plugins & Sample Pack Charts where we list the best alternatives in each category.
