My next experiment is ready to come out of the laboratory- another free sample pack featuring a doumbek.
Free Sample Pack- Brother Typewriter
I have released another free sample pack -- a vintage typewriter! It's a retro, blue, steel affair that smells like 50 years worth of cigarette smoke. I'd like to imagine that a frustrated news jockey sat before it while giving himself a black lung.
I sampled numerous mechanical sounds this typewriter produces during operation. The sample pack can be used for foley, sound fx, musical composition, and anything else that may come to mind. They were recorded dry as mono 16 bit 96khz .wav files using Audacity, a Shure SM-57 and a Behringer mixer.
Free Sample Pack- Black Swamp Tambourine
This is for all the people who have graciously provided many great, free samples over the years. I have made my own sample pack featuring a Black Swamp tambourine.
Remember seeing that band where the singer was haphazardly bashing on their hip a plastic circle with thin steel jingles? This is my response to that and my vision of what a tambourine should really sound like. You may be asking, "Tambourine? That's lame, why bother?" Well, I hope to show with these samples the nuance and charm of this instrument that is underestimated. Use it for orchestral scoring, ethnic/ world beats, or to spice up your rhythm tracks with a new sound.
Model TD2, 10'' diameter, ash body, calf skin head, hand hammered Phosphor bronze zills
Articulations at several velocity levels: Dry, shake roll, shell pound, standard hit, thumb roll, staccato thumb roll, zill spin, zill click, head slap, doum and tek.
The samples are in .wav format. I have included a mapping for the sampler ShortCircuit as well.
This sample pack is offered for free, with no guarantees. You may not sell them. If you want to feature it somewhere else ask me first, please. Used it in a track? Share it with me!
