Our reader Valentine has contacted us to help him share his “55,5 Sample Pack” featuring 555 various one-shots and sound effects.

Valentine is a creative sound designer and an experienced musician. But his approach to music making is a little bit different: he makes sounds without any synthesizer – solely by using his portable recorder.

Same story with this pack. Each sound was recorded spontaneously on his portable recorder, then processed to make them suitable for use in sequencers, samplers etc. All samples were recorded at 24-bit rate, without the use of compressors and other treatments. They have a very good dynamic range (-6db) making them perfect for compression.

The author encourages you to layer the sounds or create experiments. All sounds are 100% royalty free.
