HISS and a ROAR has announced the release of a new sound library that is a crossover between an ambience library and a polyrhythmic pattern library.

Rain Rhythms features a collection of 92 samples selected from over 14 hours of multitrack recordings, captured during two days of Summer rain.

By strategically placing inverted metal trashcans below cracks in the clearlight roof of the porch at the back of my house, the leaking drips perform very interesting rhythms.

The library is presented chronologically, with 12 x 5 minute selections from my first recordings with a MKH8040 pair capturing general ambience and MKH8050 inside a single trashcan pounding out a beat. Then followed by 17 x 5 minute selections captured with three trashcan mics over the course of an entire day of recordings. The filename of each multitrack selection includes the starting and ending tempo in BPM, to help indicate the intensity and the shift in speeds.

The library is priced $49 USD, and you can use coupon code DRIP at the checkout to get a 33% early bird discount until April 24th, 2022.
