Organic One Shot Percussions, Atmospheres And Textural Sounds From A Nearby Forest.

While out recording soundscapes in a wooded area nearby I started to get side tracked by how so many sounds that were coming out of the environment I was in sounded like percussive instruments. I felt like I was surrounded by this invisible orchestra only playing percussion instruments.

I started to focus mainly on two very distinct sounds that sounded extremely percussive to my ears. One was the sound of dragging my feet through stones. This to me sounded like a real life shaker sample. The other, the sound of branches, sticks and twigs snapping. These almost sounded like the snap of fingers but more abrupt.

I recorded hundreds possibly thousands of these sounds and then started to edit them slightly and delete some until I was down to the 209 samples that are available in this pack.

All samples are royalty free and are free to download from this page.

This pack will be removed sometime in the future to make space for future sample packs. But you will always be able to find it in the “The Signature SoundBank” Sample SoundBank. This SoundBank is filled with over 5’000 different music samples, sound effects, drum one shots, soundscapes and environmental audio recordings which are all completely royalty free and free to use once downloaded. This pack is £1.99 but is updated every month with new recordings and samples similar to this and is sent out on the 1st day of every month to all subscribers who pay the once of fee of £1.99. A once off payment that costs less than the price of an americano in Starbucks could gain you access to a future filled with audio samples. You can preview the Soundbank’s .PDF file below and see what other samples and sounds are available.

Hope you guys enjoy them. I put a lot of effort into them. It took so much time. I think all in all it was about 15-20 hours of work went into these. So I hope they are not too bad and are useful too you.
