Intimate Noise is a recent newcomer to the sample pack world but has already got eight packs under its belt, including a free sample pack that takes sounds from each. Pond Skating is the latest library from Intimate Noise and features a partnership with electronica duo, Isan. The British-born act has been performing and producing since the 90s, recently releasing their eighth album, Lamenting Machine.

Isan utilised their favourite techniques while experimenting in the creation of Pond Skating, incorporating sounds from vintage and modern synthesisers, drum machines and modular rigs. As Intimate Noises put it, Isan “are offering a huge selection of sounds to inspire you and lend a flavour of their dusty tones to your tracks”.

Open up the pack and you’ll find 478 royalty-free audio files, all in 24-bit/44.1kHz, amassing 1.6GB in filesize. This includes 105 melodic loops & sequences, 126 percussion loops & sequences, 18 tape loops and 229 percussive & miscellaneous one-shots.

Pond Skating is available now at an introductory price of £18, shortly moving up to £30. To get a taster of Intimate Noise’s sounds, you can sign up to its newsletter and receive a free sample pack.
