Fairly Confusing releases Stone Age Percussion Kit

Fairly Confusing Stone Age Percussion Kit

Fairly Confusing has released the Stone Age Percussion Kit, a free collection of 95 one-shot wav samples.

This is the real rock percussion kit. One holidays I happened to stroll a mountain road into area filled with piles of stones and rock pieces. The weather was fine, the wind was blowing elsewhere and I took the opportunity to take a stone smashing session onto Zoom H2n recorder.

Later I chopped it, to make a set of one shot rock hits samples, which I used to build a percussion kit in the sampler. It’s fun and it sounds rather unique.

Stone Age Percussion Kit features

  • 95 samples in wav format, stereo 96kHz/24 bit.
  • Includes mappings for Battery 2 or newer (compatible with Kontakt).
  • 9 MB download.

The sample pack is a free download.

Rekkerd Sound Recordings Vol. 2 – free sample pack

Ever since recording some sounds a few years ago, I’ve been meaning to take the trusty Zoom H2 for another round. I finally took the time to capture another batch of ordinary, and perhaps some less ordinary sounds.

sound recordings vol 2 was recorded with the Zoom H2, a budget priced pocket recorder

For Rekkerd Sound Recordings Vol. 2 I found a number of interesting objects to hit, drop, slide, slam, press, etc. After a good amount of editing the pack ended up containing 90 samples. Various noises produced by light switches, fans, drawers, and lots more included.

The samples are in 24-bit/44kHz WAV format. Plenty of background noise is included, and those with a good ear might spot one of my kids in some of the recordings. 100% high quality lo-fi!

So why did I record these sounds? Well, I personally love create rhythms/percussions with unusual sounds so I figure I’m not the only one. Also included in the pack is a number of such loops that I did exclusively using the recorded sound and and a bunch of processing. You can listen to those loops below.

Short links for January 12th, 2009

Some interesting things I found recently:

Zoom H4N

# First look at the Zoom H4N digital audio recorder

Brad Linder takes a look at the Zoom H4N, a digital pocket recorder.

I got a chance to stop by the Samson booth at CES yesterday and check out the new Zoom H4N digital audio recorder. This flash recorder is an upgraded version of the Zoom H4, but Zoom and Samson don't plan to phase out the older model. Rather, they'll now offer flash recorders in three price ranges, $199 for the Zoom H2, $249 to $299 for the Zoom H4, and $349 for the zoom H4N, which is a bit closer to being a pro audio device. The new recorder should begin shipping in February.

# Like a DIY NAMM: Handmade Music Preview, with Gestural Gadgets, Mannequin Parts, More

Peter Kirn posts details on some of the DIY projects that you can go check out for yourself at the upcoming Handmade Music Night, this thursday in NYC.

What’s new in the world of music technological creations? It’s stunning how much people are creating in their private workshops and bedrooms. I’m pleased to have the chance to share it virtually here, and Thursday night in person in New York City.

Here’s a look at the projects. It’s a bit like having an all-DIY, oddball music tech trade show – eat your heart out, NAMM show! (Warning: one slightly not-safe-for-work clip of a mannequin getting felt up.)

# Stanwood craftsman puts human touch on factory-made pianos – Darrell Fandrich is a micromaker of pianos, importing instruments from China and parts from Europe and the U.S. and rebuilding them as Fandrich & Sons pianos. A craftsman in an assembly-line world, Fandrich hopes that human touch can turn back the clock on pianos built by conveyor belt.
