Sample Anatomy has just released a new sound library, Future Trap and Glitch, which they’ve dubbed (ha) a construction kit for Trap, GltichHop, Dubstep or Broken Beat producers.
The creators have organized the sounds in Future Trap and Glitch into “kits” made up of different classes of “grooves,” collections of loops that all fit together. The user can then pull apart the anatomy of these grooves and use them as is, or remix and “remangle” to their hearts’ content. A total of 16 “grooves” come in two BPMs covering the lower and upper tempos: 100 and 140 Beats Per Minute. Continue reading

A Sound Effect is a new site that offers a catalog of independent sound effect libraries.
“These libraries are usually spread out over a huge number of individual sites, making it really tricky to find relevant sfx from the independent community,” says creator Asbjoern Andersen. “I thought it was a real shame, as they do some amazing stuff – so I’ve managed to get 25 indie sound designers and recordists on board to showcase more than 80 of their libraries.”
At A Sound Effect, you can browse, preview, search and find specific libraries from all 25 sound designers. See the site for more info.

AudioThing has introduced Pong Glockenspiel - a VST/AU 32/64bit plug-in for both Windows and OSX.
Pong Glockenspiel is a VST/AU sample-based plugin made by recording a toy glockenspiel played with ping pong balls. Two velocity layers (hard and soft) are cross faded to have a smooth transition while the 3 round robin (repetitions samples) avoid the “machine gun” effect of sampled instruments. There are also included two ambient instruments, two synth pad instruments and two slowed down instruments crafted using the original samples.
Here’s an audio demo: Continue reading
