Rice Packs

Although Ricepad allows you to import audio files from your computer, you can use the ready-to-use sounds of the packages known as Rice Packs. They’re freely available on the Ricepad Store within the app. The packs presented in this page are offered by artists who generously released the included samples under a royalty-free license, and very kindly allowed the distribution and adaptation for Ricepad. This means that thanks to them you’re free to use these sounds in musical compositions, for both commercial and non-commercial purposes.

Here’s the currently available Rice Packs, but keep in mind that the list is growing!
