Free Samples

A selection of samples I’ve recorded over the past few years.

Bağlama (Turkish stringed instrument) 16 mono samples (44.1kHz, 16bit). A couple of normal plucked sounds, but mostly the samples were created with an Ebow and loosening the strings.

Prepared Classical Guitar 31 stereo samples (44.1kHz, 24bit). Created using a classical guitar and Allen wrench (no damage was done).

Electric Guitar 16 mono samples (44.1kHz, 16bit). Some sounds from my Ibanez s770pb, making heavy use of the tremolo arm and Ebow.

Physical Modeled Flute 22 mono samples (44.1kHz, 16bit). Sounds are from a Max/MSP patch I built based around a physical modeled flute designed by Jon C. Nelson. *Warning* Some sounds are quite loud and harsh. I have plans to share the Max patch, however some cleaning up is needed…

Crystal Glasses 8 stereo samples (48kHz, 24bit). Performed by Jonathan Thompson in the UNT recording lab (shared with his permission).

Miscellaneous 17 stereo samples (44.1kHz, 24bit). Sounds created with some cardboard, brush, and Allen wrench.

Grainy Smith v1.1

A patch I built in Max/MSP to get some expressive gestural content from granulation. Built around John Gibson’s jg.granulate (download here before running patch). Download Grainy Smith v1.0 here.
