Field recordings, drone and noise samples
DRONES x NOISES is a collection of field recordings and synthesized drone sounds. Add depth and texture to your digital productions.
What Good Are A Bunch Of Noises?
Check out the video below to hear a song made entirely with samples from DRONES x NOISES. The Ableton Live Set for the song is also included in the download (Droneship.alp) to give you an idea of how you can use the samples in your own production.
Analog Life For Your Digital Productions
Music made entirely ‘inside the box’ (with a computer only and no external sound sources) can often sound ‘too clean’ or sterile. One of the beauties of the analogue medium is its inherently characterful sound – you’ll be hard-pressed to find an analogue device without a little bit of characterful noise or texture that gives your sound a unique space and feel.
Artificial noises and field recordings can be used to add texture and depth to almost any production whether it’s your latest left-field experiment or the next pop hit. Check out this article from liveschool for some good examples of the benefits of noise.
Why stop at just textures though? Noises and drones can even be used to create characterful synth sounds with defined pitches.

What You Get
The pack contains field recordings I’ve collected, recorded from multiple sources using my iPhone, Zoom H5 or whatever other recorder was handy. The pack also includes noises and drones that I’ve generated using Ableton Live and various synths and FX.
