Glitchmachines releases Idiom sample pack

Glitchmachines has announced the release of Idiom, a new sample pack by sound designer Ivo Ivanov, featuring 2,200 unprocessed organic sounds.

Glitchmachines Idiom

Idiom was designed primarily with electronic music production in mind, stepping in as a critical tool for the modern musician in need of organic recordings known to be notoriously challenging and laborious to capture. Musicians can now enjoy the same diverse sonic palette that post production and game audio engineers have used to create their most memorable material.

Idiom’s epic scale yields the ultimate sonic playground for Polygon and Cataract users. The raw, natural sounds in this pack are begging to be mangled, stretched, pitched, layered and processed. Granulate the sounds into intricate particles or shift and layer them to design mind-blowing composite sound effects. Load them into your favorite sampler or DAW and embrace a vast resource of sonic building blocks that will empower you to reach the outer edges of your imagination.

Idiom is available for purchase for $39 USD.
