Samples From Mars has announced the release of a sample library featuring a collection of acoustic field recordings re-pitched on tape and more.

For this release, we captured 152 unique foley and acoustic sound FX in different natural environments (adding up to over 16 minutes of audio), tube saturated them, re-pitched them on tape, and morphed them in the very cool Lexicon Vortex.

We recorded percussive and ambient sounds in various natural environments – nature, on the street, indoors, in a studio – and with different materials – wood, glass, plastic, our body, etc. We recorded vocals, rain hitting various objects, thunder, traffic, the ocean, vinyl, elevators, refrigerators, drill bursts, pepper grinder, toaster, metal pots, coins, plastic bins, metal gates, tree chops, twig snaps, water droplets, PVC pipes and more. Our field recording setup was a Sennheiser 416, Sound Devices 302, into a Zoom H6. Using the excellent limiter on the Sound Devices allowed us to catch more of the releases on many of the impacts.
