Detunized releases 1konkret, a sound library for Ableton Live.

Detunized 1konkret

1konkret exposes all those daily noises and sounds that actually nobody needs. Because nothing is more annoying than screaming hard disks, rumbling elevators, creaking doors and windows or even espresso machines going into standby. In spite of that Stephan Marche from Detunized took the challenge and gave soul to this tonal garbage so that it can be used in a reasonable way.

The results are 99 lacy created presets for the Live library that introduce a wide spectra of acousmatic sounds. The Live Pack includes categories like “Cadenced”, “Impulse”, “Retro-SciFi” and even harmonically playable Pads, Leads and Textures.

1konkret is available to purchase for the introductory price of 7 EUR.

The Tweak Box sample pack is a wonderfully weird collection of sound samples which would be great for producers of IDM, Glitch, Experimental, and Minimal styles of music.

This varied package is fresh, massively inspiring, and equally great for creating ear-catching drops or layering with more traditional beats. All sounds leave enough space for your own creative ideas to flourish. In fact, your eagerness to experiment might be well-encouraged.

Rekkerd Sound Recordings Vol. 2 – free sample pack

Ever since recording some sounds a few years ago, I’ve been meaning to take the trusty Zoom H2 for another round. I finally took the time to capture another batch of ordinary, and perhaps some less ordinary sounds.

sound recordings vol 2 was recorded with the Zoom H2, a budget priced pocket recorder

For Rekkerd Sound Recordings Vol. 2 I found a number of interesting objects to hit, drop, slide, slam, press, etc. After a good amount of editing the pack ended up containing 90 samples. Various noises produced by light switches, fans, drawers, and lots more included.

The samples are in 24-bit/44kHz WAV format. Plenty of background noise is included, and those with a good ear might spot one of my kids in some of the recordings. 100% high quality lo-fi!

So why did I record these sounds? Well, I personally love create rhythms/percussions with unusual sounds so I figure I’m not the only one. Also included in the pack is a number of such loops that I did exclusively using the recorded sound and and a bunch of processing. You can listen to those loops below.

ToneBytes Analog Noise

ToneBytes and Softrave has released Analog Noise, an effect which adds the sound and atmosphere of analog recordings to your tracks and mixes.

The purpose of the plug-in is to add sounds typically found in the recordings of existing devices. For this goal, Analog Noise has 21 sound profiles, including the sound of magnetic tape with various coverings, the sound of vinyl records, and the sound of the signal of various tube and transistor devices, such as Hammond Sounder, Moog Liberation, Akai Ax-73, JVC MI-5000, etc.

With the help of the embedded equalizer, it is possible to either emphasize or mute those parts of the noise profile you want. The features of the equalizer are selected in such a way that it keeps its use of noise sounding natural.

A big range of noise level settings makes it possible to saturate the sound a little, or to greatly distort it. This allows Analog Noise to be used not only for adding effects to sound, but also as a source of the sound of different noises to be used in experimental styles of electronic music.

Analog Noise for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for $20 USD / 15 EUR.
