Do you produce beats? Mix or master audio? or are you recording yourself for a podcast even. What ever you might be using your Digital Audio Workstation for, this site (check the free plug-ins) has many tools to help you get to that next level for producing, recording, and sound engineering needs. VST plugins, sample packs, and more.

Using the best quality samples, will always improve the quality of your song. The infamous quote “you can polish a turd as much as you want, its still a turd,” is something that applies here.

By selecting an artist pack, that produces a style of music you want to make, you will be provided with that exact style of samples you need, and they will be good quality. This step is the best starting point, when learning to produce music within a DAW.
Some additional Sample Packs, based on Genre, is also a great way to get inspired. Here’s an easy link to three options:
