AudioThing has introduced Soundscapes Vol.1, a collection of soundscapes, textures and ambiences ready to use as Kontakt instruments or WAV loops.
These sounds are divided in two main categories as the source materials: concrete and gear. The raw concrete samples were recorded in different places across Europe (Paris, Dublin, London and Naples) using studio or handy equipment. The raw gear samples were recorded from hardware synthesizers like a Custom Eurorack Modular Synth, guitar pedals and noisy toys like a Thingamagoop 2.
Everything was then processed and boxed inside a Kontakt instrument with a custom performance view. The pitch bend is assigned to a ±24 pitch transpose, good for glitch effects. All samples are perfect loops, so if you don’t have Kontakt you can load them directly.
Soundscapes Vol.1 features
- 30 Kontakt Instruments (.nki).

- 33 Samples (48Khz / 24Bit).
- Size: 117 MB installed.
