The Best Lofi Sample Packs of 2020 [Free Downloads Included]
The success that Lofi music has seen all across the board in recent months is pretty much undeniable.
Nowadays almost everyone is familiar with “lofi hip hop: beats to relax/study to”, so it’s an amazing genre to have under your belt as a music producer.
Whether you want to create Lofi hip hop or lofi house music, in this style of music it’s all about the samples. You NEED to have amazing samples to begin with. Secondly, it’s about editing and mangling your samples (in various degrees) to come up with something amazing.
So, if you’re inspired by this genre and looking forward to giving it a try, or simply looking for new inspiration, we put together this list with 8 amazing packs, both free and premium, to get started with.
If you’re brand new to the genre, this is your best starting point.
Our production team spent multiple days analyzing the most popular songs of communities such as Chilled Cow, Chillhop Music and many more.
The result of our work was this toolkit, where you’ll find plenty of drum loops, drum one shots, MIDI files, lofi samples, and melody loops which will give you the capability of creating full beats.
Included in the lofi toolkit:
60+ Lofi Drum Loops
60+ Lofi One Shots
20+ Lofi Melody Loops
20+ MIDI files
If what you’re looking for is that vintage tape sound which is characteristic to classic hip-hop albums such as Illmatic, The Infamous, and Enter the Wu-Tang, look no further.
This sample pack includes Analog processed drums, lofi samples, and instruments that were recorded in our studios with real cassette recorders, reel to reel tape machines, and anything else we could find!

Ocean waves, fire crackles, city sounds, rain, river streams… the possibilities are pretty much limitless.
LIFE includes a myriad of professionally recorded real life sounds capable of matching any mood or ambience you may be looking for your beat.
We honestly consider this pack a “must have” in a music producer’s toolkit, as it’s incredibly versatile and works with any other genre besides lofi music.
For this simple but yet incredibly powerful sample pack we used a REAL rhodes piano from the 70s processed through analog gear!
