Ueberschall has launched Ambient Textures, a new Elastik Soundbank featuring ambient soundbeds and rhythms for media production.
Ambient Textures contains 2 GB and 216 loops. The samples are organized in four different folders: Harmonic Ambiences, Drum Textures, Percussion FX and Unperfect Loops. From dreamy, hypnotic musical beds through to dark, menacing moods, Ambient Textures is a perfect choice for media composers and sound designers looking for new inspiration.
A collection of harmonic ambience loops organized into small kits of loops with loops from each kit designed to be layered. The loops are long (many well over 30 seconds) and containing evolving soundbeds. These harmonic samples can be augmented with the a series of drum and percussion textures. All the loops in this second element have been processed and, with the powerful time-stretching features of Elastik, can be time-stretched to match any tempo required. The final element is a series of ‘unperfect loops’ with both rhythmic and non-rhythmic sounds, noises and sound FX.
Ambient Textures provides an ideal collection of source material for busy sound designers and composers working in film, TV, commercials, games, documentaries, advertising or other background music/audio applications.
The library is available for purchase for 49 EUR.

Capsun ProAudio has launched Textures – Dust, Dirt & Crackle Vol. 1, a sample pack featuring a collection of original loops and single sounds, purpose built, designed and found to inspire emotive production and evoke memories of distant locations and forgotten nights.
Musical inspiration construction sets should arouse the senses and broken beat loops, sampling classic drum machines and run through warm vintage gear can spread dust and dirt through your production in just the right amount. Rhythmic crackle beds can be added with a stunning selection of record loops from every source conceivable. Warm things up with rusty cassette noise loops or cool it down with tempo synced mechanical and twisted machine noise.
Deep and evolving sound beds we’ve called Wash will provoke flashes of 80s sci-fi whilst holding one foot firmly in the production styles of Future Beats, Textured Garage & House and Classic Hip-Hop. 70 all new Drum One Shots are included, ranging from dusty old machines, the buzz of inspired mistakes and the deep thud of over-saturation.
Influence has been drawn from experimental electronic artists such as Burial, Flying Lotus, Clams Casino, Four Tet, Cyril Hahn, Ta-Ku, Actress, Zomby and also pioneering musicians and composers such as Brian Eno, Trent Reznor, Phil Spector and John Carpenter. This makes this expansive collection ideal for downtempo electronica, turned down rap, chill trap, classic hip-hop, future garage, chillwave, ambient house and techno, atmospheric DnB and future beats.
The sample pack is available for purchase for £19.95 GBP.

Patchpool has annonunced the release of Ambient Strings, a sound library for MachFive 3 by MOTU.
Ambient Strings focusses on atmospheric sounds and textures derived from string instruments like cello, violin (electric and acoustic), electric and acoustic guitars, psaltery (ebowed, plucked and bowed) and oud.
The patches combine textural sounds, multisampled acoustic instruments and more exotic instrument articulations with electronic textures all derived from the dry instrument samples to create wonderful, ethereal, dark and mysterious sound worlds. Expressive multisampled instruments, temposynced instrument sequences and morphable soloistic phrases are also included in this library.
16 patches patches/instruments have scripted interfaces for extended sound manipulation, a snapshot system especially developed for this library allows the user to save and recall 5 snapshots, or recall the 5 snapshots programmed into the patches by default. So on top of the 75 patches this library ships with another 64 snapshot variations.
Ambient Strings features
- 3.35 GB of original samples (wavs/stereo/48 Khz/24 Bit), 6 impulse responses, 4 single cycles, a small fraction of samples was borrowed from other patchpool libraries.
- 75 patches (including 3 low CPU variations) plus 64 snapshot variations inside the scripted patches, combining all synthesis forms available in MachFive 3.
- All non-scripted patches have the Modwheel and the 8 Macros assigned in the info tab, quite a few also use Aftertouch.
The sound library is available for purchase for 68 EUR.
