Tom Shear has announced availability of the Waveformless Sample Collection, featuring sounds from previously released Free Sample Friday packs and some additional material.

Waveformless Sample Collection

The pack contains about 1,400 samples, including chords and hits, drums, field recordings, fx, and foley, multi-sampled hardware synths, percussion, and more.

Many moons ago, I used to write a blog for Electronic musicians called Waveformless. One of the more popular features there was something called Free Sample Friday, where every Friday I’d upload a bunch of free samples fitting a specific theme for other musicians to use freely. It might be anything from a multisampled synth sound to lofi drum sounds to field recordings of a Glasgow elevator.

These samples haven’t been available online for a long time, so I thought the current pandemic having everyone stuck inside would be a good time to make them available here. And in the spirit of the original, they are yours to use free. I’ve made these pay what you want, so you can throw me some ducats if you wish, but you don’t need to pay a thing.

The Waveformless Sample Collection is available from the Assemblage 23 website.
