We’ve got a pretty eclectic range of downloads for this week’s Free Stuff Friday. Go on a global journey with an exclusive sample pack from Baauer, build the tension with some pressurized noise and lay down the fundamentals with some properly large drums. You could literally make an album with just these three tools; what are you waiting for?
Where’s the drop?
First up we have a Max for Live plug-in that’s perfect for sucking, rhythmic noise, heated build-ups and plunging drops. It’s a noise generator with multiple wave types, a resonant filter and an ADSR envelope which are all easily mappable to Push or other controllers via a handy Lemur template. Plus there’s a handy rate parameter to introduce various gated beats to your sheets of noise.
Get NoisR from Audio Outlaw.
Power Drums and Found Sounds
Next we’ve got a diverse pair of drum racks and a handy track of automated effects to add new layers of complexity to your drums sounds. The ‘Power Tools’ drum rack features a versatile array of big drums which are complemented nicely by the ‘Undercover Found Percussion’ rack, a set of abstract every-day knocks and wacks that can add some reality to your productions. To cap it off Afro DJ Mac has built a rack of automated MIDI clips that can mangle, expand and destroy your new set of sounds.
Afro DJ Mac walks you through the drum packs and effects channel.

Exclusive access to Baauer’s sound safari
The cherry on the cake this week is a special pack of samples recorded by Baauer. The “Harlem Shake” producer went globe trotting to find some fresh sounds to fuel his new album. He came back with grunting camels, Japanese drums and Arabian chants which are all yours to shape into something new. These are some crazy sounds that’ll shake up your library, plus you’re working with the exact same stems that Baauer is using for his record. Pretty neat.
