Sunhouse sample packs
Free for all Sensory Percussion users.
Sensory Percussion comes with 27,657 samples and 357 preset kits recorded and designed by Sunhouse. The raw sounds and presets range from tight and slamming to spacey and sound-scapey (and everything in between).
Start from scratch by dragging and dropping sounds that inspire you into blank kits, or tweak parameters inside of the factory kits. Or even mix and match the individual drums within the presets to create completely new kits! There are galaxies of sound waiting for you at the tips of your drumsticks.
This pack is all of the samples and kits that you get when you install Sensory Percussion for the first time. It includes the familiar sounds of classic drum machines from the 80s and 90s, meticulously recorded acoustic drums, hand drums, drumline instruments, auxiliary percussion (pitched and non-pitched), beat-box samples, and much more. It also ships with wide collection of tonal sounds, from synths and pianos, to stringed instruments and ambient sound scapes.
Voyager Sounds Volume 1
This pack is sampled from 80s synths and drum machines. It includes synths like the Prophet-6 & Prophet Rev 2 by Dave Smith Instruments, a Roland Jupiter-80, and a Minimoog Voyager, and others. The raw samples for this pack are all named after rocket ships launched in the 1980s. After installation you can find them in the Sunhouse Library in a folder called Voyager Sounds Volume 1.
King Klavé Sounds
King Klave Sounds is a library of Afro-Cuban percussion samples and kits produced in collaboration with Amaury Acosta. The pack includes extensively sampled instruments, including batas, bongos, timbales, claves, congas, cajon, guiro, ogene, shekere, timbale bells, cha bells, cowbells, and jam block.
Lunar Cities is a collective of eight tonal sister-soundworlds within the Sunhouse library. A collaboration with Eliot Krimsky of Glass Ghost, the pack highlights vibrant melodic and harmonic instruments, as well as new sound control techniques developed for Sensory Percussion.
Gordian Plexus is a cold, dark, and complicated sound-world. It has grainy, saturated tonal and percussive sounds, doubled-up virtual acoustic drums, violin samples, garbled cassette effects, samples of dusty-wavetable synth tones, office sounds (ooooh), and many kits that utilize new Sensory Percussion features and techniques.
Black Cat is an extensive collection of time-worn instrumental sounds. It includes grainy tonal samples from warm synths, pads, leads, an ambient guitar, bass guitars, and electric pianos. There are also plenty of hits from three drum machines with unique but classic electronic vibes. Finally, two extensively sampled acoustic drum kits provide the sample material for hyper realistic virtual-acoustic models of two kicks, four snares, three congas, a djembe, auxiliary percussion, two hi-hats, and a ride-cymbal.
Streetlab is an exhaustive sonic exploration of skateboard sounds including various types of decks, trucks, wheels, rails, grinds, smashes, and crashes - all sourced from field and studio recordings made by Josh Green and Andrew Meador on the skateboard. The pack includes raw samples of impacts and vocalizations from trick landings, as well as texture-on-texture sounds from the different parts of the skateboard struck with brushes and sticks. It also includes original chords, tones, and drum machine hits, and kits produced at Sunhouse HQ.
Dreamtropolis is an anthology of over 3,000 sounds and 28 kits that explores a world of imaginary cities with their peculiar and fantastical sonic ecosystems. It's rich with chords, tones, and loops, containing the sounds of bass guitars, electric pianos, classical guitar, and more. Dreamtropolis also includes an immense and unique collection of one-shot hits from drum machines, acoustic drums, cymbals and other found-sound-percussive-objects.
The ganzfeld effect is a kind of perceptual deprivation by exposure to unstructured noise. The brain can't handle the noise, so hallucinations ensue. Our Ganzfeld Effect pack is comprised of lush, earthy sounds and kits. The pack is overflowing with multi-percussion samples, and full mappings of: a snare drum, bass drum, floor tom, two dhols, and an udu. It also has sounds from ocarinas, a harmonium, a banjo, and an accordion. The kits in this pack range from simply-essential-percussive-sounds, to intricately tonal and twisted soundscapes.
The Swarm Sapience sound pack is inspired by the hive-mind. It contains kits with bubbly, stereophonic cycles, colorful synth chords and notes, staccato drum machines, and intimately abstract sounds sourced from percussive trinkets with a contact mic! Some of these kits are tonal, some are strictly percussive.
The Millalobo sound pack is named for the mythical Chilean half-man, half-sea lion king of the sea. There are electronic percussion sounds, smooth & metallic vibraphone-esq notes and chords, and old-school gritty piano & flute composite sounds.
This pack is inspired by the sounds of funk, hip-hop and jazz drummers like Clyde Stubblefield, Questlove, and Ben Riley, and sampled from an assortment of drums in our collection here at the Sunhouse studio.
An organic, but space-drenched collection! Half of these kits include tonal features, ranging from the strange and bubbly to moody and sinister. The other half are percussive kits inspired by the crunchy, slurpy, sloshy and more interesting sounds of nature in the Elements sample pack.
The Sol Seco pack is a vintage-vibe-1970s-inspired set of groovy acoustic kits.
These 10 kits feel like taking Ambien and fighting the urge to drift off. Hypnagogia is made up of many new and old samples scattered throughout the Sunhouse samples library.
This sound pack is an homage to the drum sounds of late 90s hip hop from the American South. Gritty, sharp snares, claps, hi-hats, cymbals, and banging thick subs and kicks blare through the kits in this pack.
A trip into the bizarre and beautiful realm of uninhabitable celestial objects. There are four complete kits in this pack, as well as four single drums.
