ModeAudio has announced the release of City Transport and City Scenes, two new field recording sample libraries.
Listen as all the hustle and bustle of the city kicks off in City Transport, a collection of masterfully-recorded ambient sounds. Sonic detail and variety abounds in these 6 sound files, with everything from the clatter of underground train barriers, wailing police sirens, the distant rattle of canal lock gates, the slow whining of aeroplanes above and much more captured and presented for your musical enjoyment!
The city lives and breathes in City Scenes, our latest collection of detailed, meticulously captured ambient field recordings. This set of soundscapes lays out all the complexity and movement of everyday places in every one of its 6 recordings – from the racket of market traders packing down for the day and the hammering of construction work, to the hush of a library and the laughing of children playing in the park.
The packs are available for purchase for £6 GBP each.

ModeAudio has launched Future Trap, a collection of presets for Native Instruments Massive and MIDI loops.
Future Trap is a sound library that pays deep respect to Trap’s roots yet looks hungrily onwards towards it’s exciting future. Combining the deep and dark qualities of early Dirty South, including its thunderous 808-style bass, nightmarish tuned percussion and zippy arp synths, with the slick and sleek nature of contemporary EDM, this release manages to sound both classic and refreshingly forward-thinking at the same time.
The 50 included presets cover a wealth of musical ground, from razor sharp siren leads, deep, quaking basses, lazy, pitch-modulated pads and acrobatic arps to punchy percussion, muscular SFX and beyond. All are infused with a boundless, bouncing energy that allows them to sit right up front with the most cutting-edge EDM productions.
We’ve programmed all 8 macro controls of every single preset for fully adjustable flexibility and the 50 accompanying, key-labelled MIDI loops will allow you to instantly audition each sound. Propel your Trap & EDM music fearlessly into the future with Future Trap – Massive Presets & MIDI Loops now!
The sound pack is available for purchase for £12 GBP.

Taking inspiration from such varied sources as cinema soundtracks, psychedelic ambience and classic chill-out, watch the horizon stretch and twist towards you with Curved Horizon – FM8 Vintage Presets!

- 50 .nfm8 presets (basses, pads, classic synths, chords, leads & plucks).
