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