99Sounds releases Magnetic Fields by Matt Bowdler

99Sounds has launched Magnetic Fields, a free sample pack featuring an eclectic collection of 50 dark and atmospheric soundscapes, crafted by Matt Bowdler aka The Unfinished.

99Sounds Magnetic Fields

The idea behind the sounds is one of dusty, mechanical, hyperreal atmospherics. Glimpses into little worlds that may or may not exist.

The sounds were constructed with a variety of The Unfinished’s homegrown samples, which were then processed with a variety of NI Reaktor modules.

Field recordings, vocals and drum loops have all been given the Magnetic Fields treatment, providing a cool collection of curiosities ideal for ambient, sci-fi and horror work.

Magnetic Fields features

  • 50 soundscapes, 24-bit/48 kHz stereo WAV format.
  • 9 NKI patches, 1 SFZ patch.
  • 302 MB size on disk (98.1 MB download size).

The pack is now available to download from 99Sounds.

99Sounds releases free 99 Drum Samples pack

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 10, 2014 - comment 0 comments

99Sounds has launched 99 Drum Samples, a free collection of electronic and acoustic drum hits which have been built from scratch and processed with enternal and external audio gear.

99Sounds 99 Drum Samples

I’ve been building this personal collection of drum samples for years and it’s being released now as a free bonus sample pack for the first music making contest on 99Sounds!

The sounds were recorded from various analogue and digital sources and processed with various on-board effects and external gear. My favorite part of the pack are the drum machine sounds and acoustic drum hits which I’ve recorded to a cassette tape in order to enhance them with a bit of punch and grit. Some of the included drum hits were also passed through an old tape delay unit, resulting in a warm organic sound.

The pack also includes a selection of modern electronic drum samples, some acoustic drums (captured with my trusty Edirol R-09 recorder) and a set of drums which were synthesized with various analogue and digital instruments (including the Korg Electribe ER-1 drum machine and the Lell UDS analogue drum generator). I’ve also included a small set of lo-fi drums which were recorded from various toy instruments such as the Yamaha DD-5.

The sample pack is a free download at 99Sounds.
