rekkerd sound recordings vol 1

I recently recorded some everyday sounds with a little pocket recorder.

For the recording I used the Zoom H2, a lovely compact digital recorder (review by Echo Voodoo here).

After editing the recording I ended up with 85 files, in 24-bit/44kHz, stereo .wav format. The samples include sounds of me tapping on various objects (glass, lamp, vase etc.), wiggling keys, playing with some bicycle parts and more.

Download the sample pack (19.1 MB) below.

Let me know if these are useful to you and I’ll go out again and record some more sounds.

REKKERD Loops - C_S_01

Codec_Spurt recently sent me a nice collection of loops.

The pack features 32 samples in 24bit/44.1KHz stereo .wav format. Most of them are beats, but some melodic and noise/fx loops are included as well.

You are free to use these samples in your commercial and non-commercial projects as long as you don’t (re)sell them (i.e. in a sample library).

Free samples: ekit pack

It’s been a while since I’ve released some loops so I figured this time I’d include the single shot samples in the download so you can do your own!

The ekit pack includes:

  • 12 loops (24bit/44Khz stereo .wav), some simple beats at 120bpm.
  • 12 sets of kick, snare, side/perc and hi-hat samples (16bit/44Khz mono .wav).

The loops are all constructed with the single shot samples only, and processed with some effects.

You can download the sample pack (7.6 MB) below. It’s free, but I do not mind donations.

Sample Remix Contest: Win an Ohm Force ALL-ALL Bundle

rekkerd sample remix contest

Sample remix contests are usually quite boring. Download a sample pack, create a track with the included samples and hope the guy running the contest likes your stuff… or takes bribes.

If you’re hoping this contest will be any different, I have to disappoint you. It’s actually exactly what you just read, except:

  1. the sample remix pack includes 100+ samples (many of which were generated/processed with Ohm Force plug-ins), so there’s plenty to work with.
  2. the readership picks the winner, so no point in trying to bribe me.
  3. the prize: Ohm Force ALL-ALL Bundle.

That’s right, you could win the complete collection of Ohm Force plug-ins, including Symptohm: Melohman and Ohmicide: Melohman. A value of $920 USD!

Excited? I know I would be, so go ahead and download the 54MB sample pack (84MB uncompressed) below to get started. And while you’re waiting for the download to complete, please read the contest rules below.

The sample pack contains 24-bit wav files (mono/stereo) which have been normalized to a peak of 0dB. The volume of the samples varies quite a bit, and some of them are quite raw ‘n nasty, so please be sure to protect your ears & equipment.

rekkerd free loops 09 – 20 beats

It has been a bit busy lately, but I’ve managed to put up another pack of beats.

They are more or less variations of the same thing, but with quite a different sound. Simple beats, with a touch of glitch.

rekkerd no-kick pack vol. 1

This sample pack contains a bunch of 128bpm beats, suitable for electronic music.

No-kick basically means the kick (bass drum) sound is missing or hi-pass filtered in these loops. Removing the low frequency sounds should allow for easier mixing with your own beats.

It’s a small pack of 8 beats in 2 varations each, so 16 loops in total. The samples are in 16bit stereo .wav format.

One sequence (10 loops)

I’ve uploaded another free sample pack for your pleasure. One sequence contains 10 melodic loops, all from the same sequence.

FL Studio 7 pattern

The pattern is the same for all loops, but obviously the instruments and effects used vary so each loop sounds quite different.

All samples are 24bit stereo (zip archive is 26.7 MB)

Hope you enjoy!
