HISS and a ROAR releases free Xmas Present

HISSandaROAR Xmas Present

HISS and a ROAR has released a free 247MB package of 24 bit 96kHz stereo sounds.

First is a brand new but redundant VHS video deck someone gave me which I promptly pulled to pieces and tortured, then are some little wind up toys that I recorded sitting on top of an old 16mm film canister. Third is a strange little prop: an antique herb grinder that I bought in a junk store, which has a great squeak that can be performed at various speeds. Fourth are some sounds I made on my modular synth – analogue synthesis is one form of religion I subscribe to – watch your bass bins is all I can say! Fifth is a green watering can – the kind of practical Xmas present you might like, but as it is metal and very resonant I managed to extract some unique sounds from it when it contained a little bit of water & I could bend the pitch of the resonance. And lastly are some very strange glass squeaks!

The sample pack is a free download for HISS and a ROAR subscribers (subscription free).

AGZFX04: Pink Piano—Free sample pack at Audio Geek Zine

Audio Geek Zine Pink Piano

Audio Geek Zine has released Pink Piano, a free sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The Pink Piano is made from a First Act brand “Grand Piano” I found at a thrift store. It’s made of cheap wood and the sound is created by the clacky plastic keys hitting some metal tines inside. It sounds broken. My kid loves it and like all musical toys I buy, I planned to meticulously sample it.

The recording was done at 24-bit; 96kHz using a pair of small diaphragm cardioid condensers and an omni condenser in the center. Each note was recorded at 3 velocities. Noise reduction was applied, the three mics were mixed, then each note was cut with the perfect start time, length and each set of velocities was set to specific peak levels. Finally the files were mapped across the keys in KONTAKT. This was all incredibly time consuming.

The sample pack is a free download.
