Loopmasters has released Movie Dialogue Volume 5, a collection of samples taken from original early film dialogue, all licensed for use under the new Creative Commons license agreement.
The vocal samples have been taken from old movies and public information films and are categorised in folders with names such as “Adventure”, “Gangsters”, “Hemp”, “Space Tests” and “Inventions”, “Killers” and “Kennedy Nixon”. These samples are all 100% Authentic which means that whilst they have all been re-mastered and de-noised, they still retain artifacts from the original recordings, which we feel gives them a much more authentic sound!
The Pack includes 393 Movie Dialogue Samples in 11 categories, with 28 patches in Halion, Kontakt, EXS24, NNXT and SFZ formats for easy auditioning. Presented here in 44.1Khz 24bit Wav format as a Zip file, simply download and enjoy using these samples immediately!
The sample pack is available to purchase for £14.95 GBP.

Mattias Westlund has announced the release of Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra, a creative commons-licensed orchestral sample library.
Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra is a free orchestral sample library. While not as advanced or ambitious in scope as commercial offerings, SSO contains all the basic building blocks for creating real virtual orchestrations. It’s primarily aimed at beginners, but also more experienced composers looking for something lightweight and/or portable might find it useful.
SSO comes in sfz format, which is a powerful, open, non-monolithic sample format. It consists of a plain text file with an sfz extension that holds all sample playback parameters, and a set of sound samples in wave format which are referenced by the sfz file. This means that sfz files can be edited with any plain text editor, and the samples can be edited with any audio editor that loads wave files.
Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra features
- Sample library created from free/CC-licensed/public domain instrument samples.
- Melodic instruments and chromatic percussion are sampled in minor 3rds. Staccato/pizzicato patches have 2x round-robin.
- All samples have varying amounts of stage ambience, depending on their front-to-back placement, but in addition to that a good hall reverb is a must.
- Format: sfz (stereo, 16 bit/44kHz samples).
Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra is available to download under the Creative Commons Sampling Plus 1.0 license.

Mark Mosher of Modulate This! has released Sounds From a Distant Outpost, a free Ableton Live Pack.
Sounds From a Distant Outpost is more than a sample sound library. Over 30 hours in the making, it is a set of 12 deep and expressive instrument racks that will transport you to a dark and distant outpost. From here you will be able to explore the sounds, machines, and creatures of this world. These instruments will help spark your imagination and I hope inspire you to create your own soundtrack for this world. Of course, the instruments will also help add an interesting “edge” to any sound or music project.
The source audio is made up of some of my field recordings as well as original synthesized and re-synthesis harmonic content. The concept for the instruments was based on a back-story I created as the project progressed. Fueled by the story and setting, I translated these these source samples into Ableton Live racks and meticulously programmed them to create playable dynamic instruments which are placed under your command via macro parameters, velocity, after touch, and modulation wheel mappings. I’ve also provided the original source samples for the project so those who don’t have Ableton Live will be able to use these samples as oscillator sources in synths like Absynth, Alchemy, ElectraX and Blofeld.
Sounds From a Distant Outpost is available as a free download for Ableton Live 8 and Suite 8 (Intro not supported), and a pack of samples for use in your sampler of choice is available as well.
