Sales & Charity

Loopmasters are still running their huge Summer Sale, offering up to 40% off various libraries from top of the line labels and sound designers. On a related note, Pluginboutique has launched an insane $1 deal on the excellent Xpand!2 workstation instrument by Air Music. An offer you surely don’t want to miss.

Epic Trailer Sounds Vol. 2 is a $5 sound library by Joshua Crispin aka Generdyn (who is also the creator of the fantastic Cinematic Sound Effects sound library). All received funds go to Guitars In The Classroom, a non-profit organization which provides free music integration classes for school staff in order to integrate singing and guitar playing as everyday school activities for schoolchildren.


Break Geek DNB Lite is a small but great sounding collection of drum breaks and one shot drum hits in WAV format. All included sounds are 100% royalty free.

Ableton Live users will definitely want to check out the free Celeste Instrument released by Expanding Sound. The included Ableton Live rack features the sounds of an actual celeste that was recorded in a performance hall.

Ghosthack has launched Bassline Pressure Light, a free Xfer Serum and NI Massive sound bank for bass music producers.

Speaking of sound banks, Diva Oblivion is a free synthwave patch collection for the excellent DIVA synthesizer by U-He.

Protein – X by Tunesurge is a free 1.63 GB cinematic sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt. The library contains five instrument patches for NI Kontakt 5, ranging from lush evolving pads to dark and distorted background textures and drones. Free registration required.

ModulARPS 2 [LE] is the freely downloadable version of Audiomodern’s new ModulARPS 2 virtual instrument for NI Kontakt. It contains a small amount of instrument patches from the full version of the product, provided as royalty free sounds.

Rossignol-Studio’s new Cliketap freebie is an interesting “body percussion” sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt. It contains a selection of percussive sounds that were produced by the human body. You’ll find a nice sounding set of chest thumps, cheek slaps (ouch!), finger snaps, etc.

Skifonix Sounds have returned to the free soundware scene with Future Groove, a free collection of audio loops and samples for future bass producers. The pack is available for free download via SoundCloud.

2WAVES Freebie is a huge 1.2 GB sample library featuring a selection of sounds from various commercial releases by 2WAVES.

Surprise Piano is an experimental NI Kontakt sound library by bigcat instruments. It’s a random piano instrument which will play a different sampled piano every time you press a note.

  1. That Surprise Piano is amazing for making a weird indie piano which keeps shifting in the stereo spectrum, especially if you’re playing big chords (or layering a few instances) – like running a piano through a phaser effect, but a lot more organic. Add some lo-fi saturation…

      Not really, the purpose of the soundware roundup is to include all the soundware freebies that weren’t featured in the news section. Since I tend to write separate articles for each software release, there wouldn’t be much interesting stuff left to include in a roundup such as this one.
