Why did we start Beta Monkey?
Beta Monkey Music began with a simple philosophy: Offer musicians a viable alternative to high-priced loop libraries and produce genre content not typically offered by the sample and virtual instrument industry.
Beta Monkey quickly evolved and has developed over 50 drum sample libraries for multiple styles of music including rock, alt rock, heavy metal, blues, country, fusion, jazz, and world music. Beta Monkey Music is the go-to source for acoustic drum loop libraries for artists wanting an alternative to virtual and MIDI-based drum track products.
As one of the world’s largest independent developers of drum loops and drum sample libraries, we offer creative inspiration to artists looking for the live vibe and rhythmic possibilities only live drumming can offer.

What sets our drum loops and samples apart from the rest?
Great Value: We offer the most competitive prices around. Compare our prices anywhere and you will find that you get two or three times the drums for any competitor’s price. Sure, we could charge $49.99 a library, but we won’t. We’d rather have you get two or three loop packs, love them, and come back for more. We do a huge amount of repeat business and price is certainly an important factor. Pay more elsewhere or get more here. It’s that simple.
Great Service: We make sure you get the right product and we stand behind our product. Need help before or after purchasing? We are here. Our customers send us their music and praise daily – It’s not by accident that these things happen. Visit our contact page for any help you may need.
We pride our company on providing the best customer service available anywhere – just ask any of our intensely loyal and satisfied customers. Email us! Ask questions or just say hello – you will be heard.
Great Drums: While other loop sellers offer heavily processed, heavily effected, and repetitive drum sounds (and, even worse, programmed MIDI drum loops masquerading as live drums!), Beta Monkey offers a wide variety of clean, pure drum loops. The one comment that consistently comes back to us is that our drums are incredibly usable. The choice is yours. We’d like to suggest you choose the real thing.
And, as our user-submitted music demonstrates, there is a simple truth and beauty to what we believe in and offer. Listen to what our customers have written over the years here.
