Inspiring Audio has announced the release of Earth Cycles, a free artsy drum library created from field recordings.
Don’t be fooled by the name, Earth Cycles is not just another hipster pack filled with recordings of plants growing… It has some valuable content such as power percussions and organic sounding drums, making it addictive in any drum pattern that claims to be ethnic or cinematic.
The sounds are beautifully recorded and have a warm feel. This library is inspired from the use of organic elements in electronica productions.
Earth Cycles offers a set of 20 dry patterns, which are full drum mixes, hat patterns and other percussive effects, followed by 5 roomy patterns- “wet” percussive loops. The last offering is a super useful set of 15 hand-picked one shots like hats and mid & low hand drums.
I highly recommend this package, is great for cinematic, ethnic, chillout, ambient, tropical house and more. In general, if you need organic sounds in your songs, then download it. For example the sounds can be used successfully to enrich your drums, either by layering actual loops or while programming the drum patterns.
All samples are delivered as 24-bit WAV files and the size is 49MB unzipped.
Inspiring Audio provides the samples for free, you can use them in any commercial or non-profit project. But if you like them, you can donate a coffee at Inspiring Audio.
In order to get the sample pack, a valid email address is required for the dowload link.
