In the process of making my album Not Pop, I created a whole new pool of interesting samples. I was particularly formatting them for use on the Elektron Octatrack, which was my main instrument when making the album, but I have reformatted them to be useful on any sampler or software that can handle WAV files. The Synthstrom Deluge, Model Samples, Digitakt, OP-Z just to name a few.
There's a certain expression that I was after when creating the sounds. I wanted a physical presence that could live side by side with acoustic elements… So I created sounds with a subtle stereo image, a good deal of texture and grit. There's a lot of sample based percussive field recorded sounds produced in a factory, drum sounds from a jazz drummer, and slightly distorted synth sounds, and a tad of piano stuff in there.
My goal is to create an interesting palette of sounds that can help me out to explore new territory.
Ultimately, I want to be able to surprise myself.
There are two directories in this pack. One is with Octatrack ready sliced sounds, with accompanying OT files that contains the slice information. The other directory has all the samples divided up into individual files, and is more suitable for most other samplers and software. There's over 700 samples in there, but many of them are from the same instrument. The percussive samples are of big variation though, as I'm sure you'll notice when watching the video above.
I hope you find something you like in here!
Thank you so much for stopping by, and for supporting me by using my store. It means a lot to me!
