Contact Mic Samples

The sounds you get from recording with a contact mic are very different to those you'd capture with a standard microphone, and SampleRadar has stuck its piezo in all kinds exotic places.

This pack is great news for experimental noise makers! Recording with contact microphones is fascinating territory to explore. This sample pack is the result of hundreds of hours of experimenting and capturing uniquely malleable sounds. Listen to the demos and then download the results below.

The contact mic madness samples are divided into eight main folders, each of which is labelled based on the type of sounds contained within it. All the samples are supplied as WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice. Because they’re royalty-free, you’re welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like. The contact mic madness samples are supplied in a zip file, so you’ll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!

These samples originally appeared on Future Music magazine’s cover DVD. Now you can download them from the Music Radar Website.
