SampleScience has announced the release of a free instrument plugin that comes with 80 vinyl crackles that you can mangle with 4 built-in effects.

Each vinyl crackle has its needle drop intro and loop points to simulate the sound of a vinyl record being played.

The vinyl crackle samples can be pitched up or down, and we highly encourage you to use the effects and modulation to create your own lo-fi soundscapes. You can set a series of effects on and switch from one vinyl crackle sound to another to find what sounds best.

Vinyl Crackles Generator features

  • 80 vinyl crackles.
  • 4 new effects.
  • Amplitude ADSR.
  • Multi-LFO.
  • Highpass/Lowpass filter.
  • Amplitude range controls.
  • 3 voice modes: polyphonic, monophonic, and legato.

The plugin is a “pay what you like” (including free) download in VST/VST3 and AU formats for Windows and Mac.
