Spitfire Audio has introduced Landfill Totems, a new sound library created in collaboration with Berlin-based composer and producer Hainbach.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
“These one-of-a-kind, complex sounds have been expertly created from vintage test equipment collected from nuclear research labs and scrap heaps — given a new lease of life and transformed into instruments by the artist.
Developed further and presented in our award-winning plug-in, discover eerie morse code bleeps, comms signals and flickering bass pulses; deep drones, ominous pads and grainy textural rhythms; industrial drum hits and loops; electromagnetic noise and heavenly humanoid ‘voices’. Create high-contrast atmospheres of suspense, tension and beauty, whether you’re writing techno, ambient music, or a cutting-edge film score.
It’s a library you can really get lost in, and it’s a ton of fun.”
Here’s the official walkthrough demo with ?Homay Schmitz:
Pricing and Availability
Hainbach’s Landfill Totems is available now for $29 USD.
Spitfire Audio & Hainbach are contributing 12.5% of ongoing library sales to Waste Aid, a UK non-profit charity dedicated to sharing waste management and recycling skills around the world, fighting poverty, plastic pollution and climate change.

I love Hainbach’s work and his vlogs, he’s a source of inspiration for me.
Hainbach is a hero!
I love Hainbach’s incredibly different approach to sound. It inspires me to actually get out and spend some time sampling and mangling audio in a way that I haven’t for several decades. However, this sound library seems a bit dishonest; anything I make with it will be infused with the the essence of Hainbach, not me. I’m just dragging around a mouse and sitting back in wonder.
It’s a bit like working with another artist
Most sound libraries seems just boring. Kudos to Hainbach for his, I guess, style? But I’d rather make my own noises or use more generic ones with tweaks.
No Kontakt version!? I dont want a new plugin for every library… what a stupid decision especially when you think about the fact the it comes from spitfire….
I love using Kontakt, but really this just makes it more accessible for those who do not have/cannot afford Kontakt
