What are the 10 best one shot kits (free and paid) in 2021? Let’s find out!
One shot kits are probably the most popular type of kits out there right now.
Everybody is using them.

Today I’ll try to answer this question. I will divide this list into two sections.
One for the FREE KITS and one for the PAID ONES
Let’s start with the 5 best free kits

In order to make this kit I used several real instruments (especially guitars) and I manipulated each sample with Virtual Analog plugins in order to obtain a warmer and fuller sound.
The kit contains:

He was among the first ones (*probably the 1st one) who started the one shot kits wave, but unfortunately not a lot of people give him credit for that.
Also…. his one shot kits are ABSOLUTELY FIRE
