Who here knows how hard it is to find good sounds?
Not only good sounds, but good sounds at fair prices?
From starting beat making, I’ve been through a lot of “poor” sounds I guess you could say!
So to help you guys out, I’ve given you my Top 5 favorite Sound Packs!
These are the actual sounds I use, and have used on my CD’s which you can check out here.
Vengeance-Sound.com’s Total Dance Sounds Vol. 1
This kit is immaculate.
Have you ever tried to find awesome dance kicks? These things are a definite 5/5. Just listen to a few of my dance tunes and hear the kicks. Vengeance-Sound.com is definitely an industry leader in dance sounds right now, and with this kit you will be just as impressed as I was. Although it is a bit pricey at $100, these sounds are amazing, and I continually come back to them.
Anno Domini’s Drum Collection Vol. 1
This is an all-round solid kit. From the kicks to the snares, to the hats! If you want some major punch and aggressive sounding one hit snares and claps in your track, look no further!
Anno Domini Drum Collection Vol. 1 has been a go to kit for me often supplying super high quality!
When receiving High Impact to review, going through the sounds I was super impressed with the snares, claps, and percussion!
Again, the snares, claps, and percussion are phenomenal in this kit. But don’t forget about the kicks!
The kicks aren’t your average short, stubby, hard-hitting kicks, they’re a bit rounder and hit in the lower end. (Great for layering, and giving your tracks a bit of extra bass!).
Exclusively through Beatstruggles you can get High Impact at 37% off! Purchase here!
Or you can also purchase High Impact through Beatstruggles Exclusive Bundle, called Cream of the Crop.

This is the kit that got me started with SoundsInHD. Their First Kit.
SoundsInHD Vol. 1
Again, Beatstruggles is able to hook you up with another discount on a product!
Get SoundsInHD Vol. 1 with a 25% off discount here.
The kicks are very unique. While scrolling through, it’s not the same kick over and over again, there is tons of variety, from short hard hitting kicks to longer tailed kicks, to a boxy sounding kick.
And just not the kicks, this is an all-round solid kit. – the claps, snares, percussion, all awesome and super high quality as usual from SoundsInHD.

808 Drums by SoundsInHD.
That Cream of the Crop Bundle is definitely an unreal bundle. 3 kits I use continually that all bring their game to the table.
The 808′s are awesome. And surprisingly, there’s not just 808′s in this kit.
The regular kicks in this kit are very nice, some thick kicks, some hard hitting, check out this audio demo to see for yourself about 808 drums!
Ya… the bass hits pretty hard in that beat. Definitely a nice 808 kit. It also comes with a couple snares/claps.

So these are my top 5 sound packs that I use.
I know how hard it is to find quality sounds, especially when purchasing! So I hope this list helps you guys out! (Also, always check out for bundles, you may be able to get a better discount!).
