Ueberschall has launched Ambient Textures, a new Elastik Soundbank featuring ambient soundbeds and rhythms for media production.
Ambient Textures contains 2 GB and 216 loops. The samples are organized in four different folders: Harmonic Ambiences, Drum Textures, Percussion FX and Unperfect Loops. From dreamy, hypnotic musical beds through to dark, menacing moods, Ambient Textures is a perfect choice for media composers and sound designers looking for new inspiration.
A collection of harmonic ambience loops organized into small kits of loops with loops from each kit designed to be layered. The loops are long (many well over 30 seconds) and containing evolving soundbeds. These harmonic samples can be augmented with the a series of drum and percussion textures. All the loops in this second element have been processed and, with the powerful time-stretching features of Elastik, can be time-stretched to match any tempo required. The final element is a series of ‘unperfect loops’ with both rhythmic and non-rhythmic sounds, noises and sound FX.
Ambient Textures provides an ideal collection of source material for busy sound designers and composers working in film, TV, commercials, games, documentaries, advertising or other background music/audio applications.
The library is available for purchase for 49 EUR.

Yemski has set free two soundsets for the Albino 3 synthesizer instrument by Rob Papen.
As a present to all Albino users, I’ve decided to make some of my old commercial releases for Albino freeware.
The patches are from two old sets I had called Yemski Arps & Grooves and another called Yemski Sound Scapes. There are 258 patches in all. Both feature extensive use of the layering capabilities of Albino 3 to produce gigantic sounds with complex polyrhythms and lush textures.
The Arps and Sequence are my take on the sort of thing you’d get from old school workstations like the Yamaha CS6R or EX5 and the complex grooves you’d often find on them. The Soundscapes were my attempt to imitate Absynth with long evolving sounds with a slightly “out there” ethereal quality.
The soundset is a free download at Yemski’s SoundCloud page.

99Sounds has launched Magnetic Fields, a free sample pack featuring an eclectic collection of 50 dark and atmospheric soundscapes, crafted by Matt Bowdler aka The Unfinished.
The idea behind the sounds is one of dusty, mechanical, hyperreal atmospherics. Glimpses into little worlds that may or may not exist.
The sounds were constructed with a variety of The Unfinished’s homegrown samples, which were then processed with a variety of NI Reaktor modules.
Field recordings, vocals and drum loops have all been given the Magnetic Fields treatment, providing a cool collection of curiosities ideal for ambient, sci-fi and horror work.
Magnetic Fields features
- 50 soundscapes, 24-bit/48 kHz stereo WAV format.
- 9 NKI patches, 1 SFZ patch.
- 302 MB size on disk (98.1 MB download size).
The pack is now available to download from 99Sounds.
