I'd love to hear what you can make with them. (Let me know if there are any files missing from the archives.) - archives contain .wav and .exs files and are around 1MB in size
My current favourites of the current crop are BottlesSmash (me having a smashing time with some old wine bottles - makes a great overlay for crash cymbals!), CongaScrew (a nice, gritty, metallic guiro effect, with wooden resonance tones), GraterKnife1rwNina (just how rough can you get if you need percussion!) and WaterTank1 (spooky, metal drips - great with lots of echo!). Diamonica is a small mouth organ / accordian type instrument.
UPDATE: Just uploaded an extra twenty lost archives from the vaults - especially check out the 'Saucepan Orchestra', numbers 87-90, a great poor-mans timbale section!
And below, new for 2011, are some great splashy water sounds that can add a bit of percussion colour
Don't forget to email me if you wish to be informed of updates to the samples archive or have any comments or suggestions to make. (Look for the mail icon on the top left of this page)
