Best Vocal Samples & Loops

Want to jump straight to the answer? Our choice for the best vocal sample is Janelle Kroll- E-Sensuals Vocal Pack & Janelle Kroll – E-Sensuals Vol II from Splice!

Full disclosure: the first time I used the phrase “vocal sample”, I was in sixth grade. I was obsessed with the idea of becoming the next big producer. It didn’t matter if I was trapped in band class, I kept coming back to the idea until I tried to make my own in a pirated copy of FL Studio. That experience quickly humbled me.

  8. Soul House VocalsHouse Music

Not all vocal samples are created equally. I’ve heard vocal snippets from Saturday Night Live episodes in a SoundCloud trap artist’s production. I’ve also heard King Crimson sampled by Kanye West.

Music has no limitations on what you can create with vocal samples. Vocal samples allow people to make music that’s almost impossible to reproduce in person. In many ways, that’s a good thing: utilizing these techniques to make music without even stepping into a studio booth means we can easily access and create art. For artists that are just starting, here are 8 of the best vocal sample packs for production.

Top Vocal Samples

Vocal Samples can vary wildly, from Georgia Engelhardt’s experimental tones to Kanye West’s masterpiece My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. However, the means and knowledge to craft original vocal samples from scratch eludes most producers. Even some of the greatest artists to ever live, David Bowie, for example, used vocal samples in tracks to add weight and tone to original compositions. With the prevalence of vocal sample packs, I listened to roughly 50 packs before narrowing it down to just these 8. Without further ado, here are the top 8 vocal sample packs.

1. Janelle Kroll- E-Sensuals Vocal Pack & Janelle Kroll – E-Sensuals Vol II

Best for: Multi-Genre Vocals

New-York based artist Janelle Kroll stands out among the oversaturated R&B genre through her powerful delivery and soulful voice. With the E-Sensuals Vocal Pack, you receive a blend of genres and styles of vocal samples.  Ranging from 90’s R&B to beach house to folk, one listen is all you need to know why Janelle Kroll has been featured on tracks by artists such as Gorillaz, Autograf, Estelle, and Moon Boots. For those looking to make fusion songs, the E-Sensuals pack is perfect for you.

2. KARRA Vocal Sample Pack & KARRA Vocal Sample Pack Vol. 2

Best for: EDM Vocals

KARRA’s past collaborators include Seven Lions, Breathe Carolina, and sober rob: that should tell you all you need to know about the perfection of her voice. In collaboration with Splice, KARRA has released 2 sample packs of over 800 vocal elements for producers to utilize.

Since most producers don’t have access to premium vocals, I’m excited to give them an opportunity to learn the ins and outs of vocal editing. My biggest goal would be to spark interest in the top-lining process so that more producers have a well-rounded understanding of musical composition and production as a whole. I can’t wait to hear how producers use these sounds in their tracks.
