Dusty Eclectic Goldmine is a collection of sounds consisting mainly of breakbeat loops. The focus is on dirty, lofi sounds that would fit well into a mix of Boards of Canada or Aphex Twin tracks. The collection also include a dialogues folder full of sound clips from vintage advertising & educational movies.
Those public domain cuts have been selected to be useful for anyone seeking worthwhile sound bites to put in their mix. They have been sampled with Ninja Tune records & early 1990 IDM in mind. The rest of the collection consist of inspiring music loops as well as FXs, one shots & vinyl crackles. While designing the sounds, I had in mind to put up a sound library similar to the good old e-Lab X-Static Goldmine libraries. Don’t hesitate to chop, remix, re-arrange the loops & sounds to your taste. It is by no mean a string the dots construction kit type of library. It is meant to be sampled & chop in a creative way. I hope you’ll enjoy this collection!
The second volume of Dusty Eclectic Goldmine includes 55 original breakbeats, 23 dialogue clips (taken from public domain sources), 13 FX loops & samples, 3 Groove Kits, 38 Music Loops (including genuine analog basslines, melodies, riffs, pads & keys) & 244 percussions samples (including 94 crystal clear bongo samples, 38 darbuka percussions, 38 real analog hits & more!). The loops are Fruity Slicer & SliceX ready, they contain all the necessary metadata (slice makers + loop points) to loop properly. The genre range from minimal techno to lofi instrumental hip hop, trance to experimental! Some of the breaks were recorded on cassettes & the percussions folder contain 100% original recordings. An Effectron Junior & rare FX pedals were used to get that unique lofi sounds from the eighties cassette exchange of underground music era. All the files are 24 bits except the dialogues which are served in 16 bits mono.
The third volume of Dusty Eclectic Goldmine includes smooth ambient loops, dirty breakbeats, dusty vintage film cuts, music loops in the style of Boards of Canada, LFO, Aphex Twin and early Ninja Tune records.You also have weird FX loops, experimental textures, voices from old public domain films, drum hits and more! My inspiration for this sound library has been Kid Koala, Cold Cuts, Lone, Kona Triangle, Milieu and the whole electronic lofi scene! Expect dusty ambiences, lofi drums, indie casio melodies and old software synthesizers doing their best!
Note that this library doesn’t include any construction kits, just samples to mangle! The samples are also lofi, dusty, there’s is crackles and it’s all on purpose to give you that old vinyl cut feeling.
