The Coil has launched Indecent Machines, a sound fx sample pack by Chad Glenn.
Indecent Machines is an industrial sci-fi sample collection of cybernetic machines featuring 1.7 gigabytes of 24-bit/96khz samples and bundled Kontakt kits, created by producer/sound designer Chad Glenn.
Inspired by a concept of mechanical disrepair and emergent AI consciousness, these sounds originated
from field and studio recordings of various machines which were then processed through custom DSP algorithms using Kyma and other sound design tools. The result is a unique set of mutant robotics, mechanical snippets, evolving textures, rhythmic artifacts and menacing atmospheres appropriate for music and sound design projects of all kinds.
Indecent Machines features
- 1.73 GB content.
- 347 24bit/96kHz .wav audio files.
- 5 Kontakt kits.
The sample pack costs $49 USD.

Puremagnetik has released Grainscapes, a collection of haunting, granular synthesized cinematic textures and ambiences for scoring or sound design applications.
Throughout many weeks of programming, Puremagnetik sound designers employed a powerful Symbolic Sound Kyma System (well known for its granular synthesis capabilities) for manipulation of conventional instrument samples.
Grainscapes was created through a process of spectral analysis, granular resynthesis, filtering and advanced jitter/ frame automation. The result is a collection of bending metal, shimmering glass structures, dark ambiences, choirs and more.
- Over 20 multi-sampled programs.
- Ableton “Live Ready” with advanced macro control programming.
- Kontakt KSP based interface for easy editing.
- “Renoise Ready” XRNI files for instant playability.
- Scoring for picture standard at 24 bit 48k.
Grainscapes is now available to Puremagnetik subscribers.

Puremagnetik has released Onda, an expressive collection of instruments created by cross synthesizing various materials and resonanting bodies.
What if you could pluck a water bottle? Or blow through a church bell as a flute? Brush a harp made out of steel guitar strings? This experimental collection of sounds was created with these concepts in mind.
Using a Symbolic Sound Kyma System, Puremagnetik developers analyzed a collection of resonating bodies as struck, plucked and banged with sticks, bricks, brushes and more. Employing Kyma’s advanced spectral processing features, these six new hybrid instruments bring lifelike physical models of completely fictitious instruments right to your sampler. In addition, Onda comes packed with over 40 professionally performed Live Clips and SIAL Apple Loops.
All Onda instruments were created using the Harm Visser Kyma Physical Modeling Toolkit (http://www.hvsynthdesign.com/kymax.php)
- 6 Multisampled programs, each with expressive velocity layering.
- High Quality 24 bit samples.
- Advanced Ableton Live Macro Controls.
- AET filtering and morphing for Kontakt to create unlimited sound variations.
- Over 40 Live Clips and SIAL Apple Loops.
- Requires Ableton Live 8.2.1, Kontakt 4.2 or Logic 8.
Onda is now available to download for Puremagnetik subscribers.

Micah Frank has announced the release of Tectonic, a free sound library.
The Tectonic compilation includes almost an hour of earthquake sonifications that can be listened to as a full length album, or played as an instrument in Ableton Live. The Live instrument includes over 30 high quality samples arranged as a menu of soundscapes.
The compilation’s source material originated from US Geological Survey data, parsed by Cycling 74’s Max/MSP and synthesized in Symbolic Sound’s Kyma X.
