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.

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 to 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 sounds and a bunch of processing. You can listen to those loops below.

The pack is a free download under the Creative Commons BY license below, and you can get some more free loops and samples here.
