Attack Magazine has announced a free Wave Alchemy sample pack.
In a short space of time, the guys at Wave Alchemy have built a well-deserved reputation for top quality samples.
From one-shot drum hit collections like the excellent Drum Hits series through to FX and their ever-increasing selection of loops, you won’t find them jumping on board the latest trends to pump out EDM-trap-brostep packs. Instead, they stick to what they know and let the quality and authenticity shine through.
In this 75MB pack you’ll find a selection of synths, loops, tops and one-shots plus 66 exclusive drum hits which can’t be bought or downloaded anywhere else.
The sample pack is a free download to registered Attack users (registration is free).

Wave Alchemy has announced the release of Claps & Stacks, a sample library featuring 560+ claps and layered stacks.
Claps & Stacks offers a diverse collection of layered claps, synthetic snaps, processed machine claps, filthy lo-fi sounds, dusty noise hits, layered snare/clap ensembles and much more…
Each and every sound has been built from the ground up by creatively blending multiple electronic and acoustic sound sources which have been further shaped to perfection using an array of high end outboard processers.
Claps & Stacks serves up 562 cutting edge clap and percussive sounds, specifically designed to work ‘straight out of the box’ and mix perfectly with drum tracks in any modern genre.
To add additional character, we have taken all of the processed sounds and cut them to a 12” acetate dubplate. This has been done to take advantage of the physical properties of Acetate which wears out after multiple plays.
All sounds have been re-sampled at 5, 10, 20, 30 and 35 plays with the best sounds (those with the most pleasing crackles and sonic artefacts) being re-edited and included (alongside the processed sounds) in the final library.
The sample library is available to purchase for £11.95 GBP.
