Fairly Confusing Waveforms has released A Touch of Junk, a small set of unusual, found-sound percussion samples recorded with contact microphones.
It has similar vibe to Junk Percussion set, but the “touch” set is captured straight from the surface. Here’s the list of objects being hit, scratched, shaken or bowed: an old baking pan, large pot lid, roast rack, a short glass, a tall glass, wooden bar, a wrench, plastic ruler, plastic bottle with carbonated water.
The last object was particularly fun to play with as the sound would depend on inside pressure or the angle the bottle was held.
The rhythm patterns were created with Haunted Jukebox, an auto-drumming machine for NI Kontakt.
A Touch of Junk collection contains 145 samples in 16-bit WAV format. All samples are royalty free.
