DNR Collaborative has announced the release of Organic Compounds, an acoustic drum sample library.
Organic Compounds is a multi-format acoustic drum package with real sonic character – high-quality sample recording, but we left a lot of unobtrusive drum and player noises, scrapes and scratches to make it a very unique product with an authentic feel.
We have paid close attention to each samples’ start and end points, making sure each hit starts and ends on zero-crossing to avoid all pops and clicks, and provide a wide array of playing styles not usually covered by traditional drum sample libraries. The original, non-normalized samples are included in this package, and yes, there is a cowbell.
Organic Compounds features
- 609 Individual acoustic drum samples.
- 732 Additional processed samples.
- Recorded through a combination of AKG C414 B-XLS II and Rode NT-55 microphones.
- Additional bonus content and extras.
- 25 SFV format mappings, 25 Soundfont format mappings, 25 Alchemy kits + 8 remix pads each, 25 Poise kits + 100 Poise cells.
Organic Compounds is available to purchase for $39 USD. Previous DNR customers pay $29 USD. A developer’s bundle is also offered and can be purchased from the same product page, priced $79 USD.

DNR Collaborative has released the Ultimate Sound Library Developer Bundle, the first product available of it’s kind which requires no permission or special licensing to use within re-distributable commercial projects.

The bundle contains 4.2GB of one-shot samples, loops, single-cycles, raw recordings and instrument patches that can be used in commercial, distributable sound libraries, games and software without the need to gather prior approval for licensing – the contained license takes care of everything!

DNR Collaborative Designs has released Old Skool Guitars, a unique new sound library designed to assist in the production of old school hip-hop, underground and fusion styles of music.
The library contains 400 licks, loops, cuts and samples for a total of 261MB after decompression.
The sounds contained in this library have NOT been treated with care! We’ve maintained a lot of finger scratches, scrapes and other noises associated with playing the guitar in hopes of creating a dirty, funky package of guitar recordings.
Old Skool Guitars is available to purchase for $19 USD. The first 100 customers will receive a free copy of Organic Compounds, a multi-format drum library (WAV/SF2/SFZ/Alchemy/Poise).
A developer license is also available to purchase for $39 USD. This license allows use in commercial sound libraries.

reason lahalla has released Metal and Motion, a package of sounds which consists mainly of original recordings and derivative textures created from recording a Zildjian Constantinople crash, a Zildjian Avedis ping ride and a Zildjian Z Custom 18″ crash cymbal through various means.
Most of the long drawn out textures were created by using different density/thickness drum sticks and “ghosting”
them lightly across the grooves until the wood catches the harmonics correctly. Other rumbling metal sounds were created through felt mallets being drawn across the cymbals at higher microphone gain stages.
Also included is a package of dual machete samples. These were recorded by using 2 separate machetes to tap, slide, slice and bend in order to get accurate ‘sword fighting’ type of sounds. You will also find other metals, such as aluminum braces and rods included in the package as well.
Metal and Motion features
- 110 Samples / 250 MB.
- Recorded @ 24-bit / 48khz.
- Originals recordings included.
- Folder Layout Includes: Aluminum Taps, Brace Taps, Cymbal Scrapes, Machete Hits, Metal Fades, Metal Textures.
Metal and Motion is available in 2 licenses – one for composers ($10 USD) and one for developers ($20 USD). The difference between licenses is that the composer’s license can be used in any musical composition with no royalties or other fees. You cannot create commercial sound libraries from these sources with the composer’s license. The developer’s license allows you to use these samples to create commercial sound libraries without requiring my permission to do so. Go ahead, make something useful and creative (and commercial) out of them.
