I haven’t check into in awhile (a very very very long while) and noticed they released passwords to all their files at the beginning of this year.  Head over to and enjoy some great minimal and noise sounds.

“Unused loops, cut-up melodies, sounds from TV, random hits sequenced for fun,

soundwaves which reminds you of something familiar, foundsounds, silly noises

and some beatbox.”

“Sonokinetic sampled two original 17th century carillons. Two , one octave bell systems in two velocity layers. Since you can only play hard and soft on these instruments we’re bound to only these two dynamic spectrum’s.” Available in Kontakt and WAV format.

FREE87 Effects

“The FREE87 series is based on the upcoming ANALOG87 series which features a set of 5 high quality analog-style VST effects for Windows. Instead of just providing a limited demo of the ANALOG87 series, eaReckon is glad to offer fully working free plugins using the same engine.

These tiny VST plugins for Windows are not only easy to use, they sound good too. Even though some of the controls of the ANALOG 87 versions have been stripped out, they will probably have a useful place in your virtual rack.”  Download FREE87 Effects.

606 Drums

“606 Drums by Wave Alchemy serves up 290 drum samples from Roland’s sought-after TR-606 drum machine. The samples included have been lovingly recorded through an API pre-amp with many sounds boasting multiple round robin variations, accent and velocity layers!”

“There aren’t many free samples of individual instruments, so I took the samples from this website, split them up, cut, pasted, and trimmed them by hand into individual wav files, then loaded them into DirectWave. The pack is divided into the MIS Orchestra Instruments and MIS Stereo Piano – If you don’t have directwave, you can load the wav files into the sample manager of your choice. The source samples that this pack was built from were released into the public domain with no restrictions. These samples are released into the public domain on a noncommercial basis (use them however you like, just don’t make money off it).”

“Mats Helgesson is the man who, in 2003, gave to the world the best free piano bank, the famous Maestro Concert Grand v2. Like many people, I searched it on the web, found it, lost it again, because this bank appeared, and disappeared as Mats found a site to host it or not… Finally, with his permission, i decided to host it myself, in order to make it available for everyone.”
