Ronnie over at the wonderful Rekkerd.org has released a new free sample pack –”Sound Recordings Vol. 2”.
Ever since recording some sounds a few years ago, I’ve been meaning to take the trusty Zoom H2 for another round. I finally took the time to capture another batch of ordinary, and perhaps some less ordinary sounds.
By the way, I have and use the hell out of my trusty Zoom H2.
For Rekkerd Sound Recordings Vol. 2 I found a number of interesting objects to hit, drop, slide, slam, press, etc. After a good amount of editing the pack ended up containing 90 samples. Various noises produced by light switches, fans, drawers, and lots more included.
The samples are in 24-bit/44kHz WAV format. Plenty of background noise is included, and those with a good ear might spot one of my kids in some of the recordings. 100% high quality lo-fi!
So why did I record these sounds? Well, I personally love create rhythms/percussions with unusual sounds so I figure I’m not the only one. Also included in the pack is a number of such loops that I did exclusively using the recorded sound and and a bunch of processing. You can listen to those loops below.
Swing by here to download a zip file with all the sounds http://rekkerd.org/rekkerd-sound-recordings-vol-2-free-sample-pack/. While the download is free, I gave a donation to Ronnie via this page http://rekkerd.org/about/.
