Mode Audio – Drum Rack Made of 100% Vinyl Samples (Free Download)
Mode Audio is a website that continually releases premium sound packs, from loops to synth presets and much much more. Recently the company released a free sound pack that is made entirely of vinyl samples. Providing 32 samples made of vinyl spins, needle drops, crackling, turntable spins and any other sound you can organically achieve through playing a vinyl. The sound pack is pretty unique, and because of its foundation in vinyl all your sounds; kicks, snares, hi hats etc. have a warm quality to them. We are suckers for sound packs that have an interesting developing story behind them. To check out another unique sample pack, checkout our review on ESTEC samples from space!

Here’s some quick dusty Hip Hop and House beats we cooked up with the rack and nothing else:
