Standard Beat Company has released Black Surface Volume One, a collection of dark ambient hits and loops. Created by sampling organic and found objects then sent through a rigorous post process, Black Surface offers a versatile set of tools for both music and sound design.
Black Surface Volume One was composed using original samples recorded with a variety of portable, cellular, and cassette recorders. Loops were sequenced using additional sounds from the beatserv Vintage library and Audio Damage's Tattoo.
Included are kits for Native Instruments Kontakt 5 and Battery 3, 93 individual hits in 24-bit .wav format, 10 construction style beats (a total of 43 loops) in both .rex and 24-bit .wav formats, and 3 kits for Native Instruments Maschine.
