SampleScience releases Dusty Eclectic Goldmine Vol. 1

SampleScience has announced the release of Dusty Eclectic Goldmine Vol. 1, its first commercial sample library.

SampleScience Dusty Eclectic Goldmine Vol 1

Dusty Eclectic Goldmine is a collection of sounds consisting mainly of breakbeat loops. The focus is on dirty, lofi sounds that would fit well into a mix of Boards of Canada & Aphex Twin tracks. The collection also include a dialogue folder full of sound clips from vintage advertising & educational movies. Those public domain cuts have been selected to be usefull for anyone seeking worthwhile sound bites to put in their mix. They have been sampled with Ninja Tune records & early 1990 IDM in mind. The rest of the collection consist of inspiring music loops as well as FXs, one shots, field recordings & vinyl crackles.

I hope you’ll enjoy this collection. While designing the sounds, I had in mind to put up a sound library similar to the good old e-Lab X-Static Goldmine libraries. Don’t hesitate to chop, remix & re-arrange the loops & sounds to your taste! It is by no mean a string the dots/construction kit type of library. It is meant to be sampled & chop in a creative way.

The wav files works well in Sony MediaSoftwares Acid music production software as well as any other softwares that loads 24 bits wav files. The library is also available in REX2 format.

Dusty Eclectic Goldmine Vol. 1 is available to purchase for $5 USD.

Loopmasters has released Bop – Minimal Drum & Bass Vol 2, a sample library featuring by producer Bop.

Loopmasters Bop 2 Minimal Drum & Bass Vol 2

Bop has returned to produce a sequel to his best selling and award winning first volume of minimal drum and bass – this time its even bigger and packed full of glitched experimental sequences, cold pads and dark menacing basses for producers making DnB, Glitch, Tech and Dubstep infused productions!

Hailing from Saint-Petersburg in Russia, Bop is a new breed of producer intent on re-writing the rulebook with an intoxicating ice-cold sound; embracing influences from Deep Techno and Minimalist Dubstep through to IDM and Ambient Drum & Bass, all released on the famous Hospital Records and Med School Labels.

Think of Minimal Glitches, random Sonic Fractals, Deep Basses and Drifting Melancholic pads, mixed with Lo-fi and 8 Bit Beats, pounding with reckless abandon after multiple sonic processes are applied and you are getting close to the sound of Bop and Minimal Drum and Bass 2.

Short links for July 20th, 2010

Some interesting things I found recently:

Squishy Circuits

# Squishy Circuits

Squishy Circuits were developed at the University of St. Thomas by undergraduate Samuel Johnson and Dr. AnnMarie Thomas.

The purpose of their development is to facilitate electronics education to younger students. Research is being done to determine the most effective implementation of this learning tool in a middle school science curriculum. Our hope is that through the use of this tool, students will better understand electronics concepts, become more interested in engineering, and ultimately participate in playful learning techniques. This page is dedicated to sharing out research and guiding the further use and creation of squishy circuits.

# Free Sample Shootout #4: Mellotrons And Harpsichords

Another free sample shootout on the bedroom producer's blog:

This week’s edition of Free Sample Shootout will be a rather short one, but also a very sweet one, because it includes links to free samples of two very rare instruments.

[CML001] Hope's not lost by Various Artists

# [CML001] Hope’s not lost by Various Artists

Camomille Music has released Hope’s not lost, an album featuring Emanuele Errante, Makunouchi Bento, Casper, Evo Luthi, Shiftless, Kyle Dawkins, Ilkae, Muhr, Transient, Ian Hawgood, Nunu, Woodworkings, and Hior Chronik & Logreybeam.

Yes, after closing down last year, we're back. We decided it was time to have fun again. Since we closed, the netlabel scene has changed a lot. The internet has changed a lot. Most of our favorite netlabels don't exist anymore. Everything has changed, for the better we think.

The thought of reopening occured to me in January 2010, after the haiti earthquake. As i stood helpless in front of my television screen, the way i envisioned to help was to make a compilation to raise awareness and funds for haiti. While that didnt turn out the way i wanted it to, i strongly and whole-heartedly advise you to go over to any of these fine establishements : Oxfam, Earthship, Google crisis response. If you think i'm missing some, please email me and i'll add them.

“Hope’s not lost” is available as a free download in various formats (mp3, flac, ogg, etc.)
