It’s Samples of the week time! In this edition, we have a heavy hitter from none other than Heavyocity – the “pay what you want” Play It Forward bundle which is just a huge flex in terms of how a prominent developer can dish out some incredible sounds in support of a good cause (The Max Foundation). Other than that, we got 900+ drum and percussion sounds cut to vinyl and processed in analog, a bunch of morphed, soundscaped instruments by Visions TNT Music for your bottomless Kontakt library, a great freebie from Incognet, and a 90% off discount on a sample-based synth.
Samples From Mars 900+ vinyl drum and percussion samples
Samples From Mars released a series of new drum and percussion one-shots which have been cut to vinyl, re-sampled, and processed via God knows what. The goal was to capture the sound of vinyl drums without the limitations of one or two pre-existing isolated drum kits.
The new pack is available royalty-free. It contains 980 vinyl drum samples at 24-bit, 16 drum kits, demo DAW projects, and an MPC Expansion pack among other good stuff to get you started immediately.
The Vinyl Drums From Mars samples are available now for USD 39. You can find out more and listen to some demos on the developer’s website.
