Samplephonics has released Ambient Soundspheres, a sample pack featuring an eclectic collection of over 100 loops and samples created from field recordings and electronically manipulated organic sound sources.
Gimu is a sound designer and electronic musician from Brazil, here’s what he had to say about creating this truly unique sample library:
‘Some of the loops and samples were made using guitars and basses, but more by generating unusual noises from the instruments as opposed to playing them in the traditional manner. Other times I record noises from my neighbourhood or from my radio or television.
Sometimes I use synthesizers as a sound source, including some really old ones that make really weird noises! I then sample them and process with a variety of tools including distortion, reverbs, delays, tremelos and granular effects.
For me it’s not really about getting melodies out of the source but getting unique sounds that I can treat and create unique timbres and textures with. Melodies seem to find their own way of evolving from the sound and the sound begins to take on a life of it’s own.’
