New in Arcade: Ambient and Atmospheric Textures
Ambient sounds create space, atmosphere, and emotion. Check out how to put them to use.

Ambient sounds are an essential piece of an indie track. The warmth of distant sounds and heavy reverb can create space and atmosphere without creating emptiness. We’ve put together four Lines full of royalty-free samples and loops that can be edited in Arcade’s powerful engine. Also, did we mention new loops are uploaded every month? Ambient sounds like these are perfect for producers who draw inspiration from indie, folk, and lo-fi music.

Use these ambient sounds to add depth to remixes, create backing tracks for a travel vlog, or as the secret sauce in your own original songs. In Arcade, there’s no need to download tons of sounds if you’ll only end up using a few — grab loops one-by-one based on your own needs. New users can try Arcade free.
