Global Sound Movement releases sample library of rare sounds

A world of Ugandan instruments and sounds opens up.

The Global Sound Movement, an academic group from the University of Central Lancashire in England, has made available a new archive of samples culled from a recent visit to Uganda.

The library is available for use in Logic’s EXS24 Sampler and Native Instruments’ Kontakt. The sounds, recorded at 96kHz/24-bit, include rare hand-built instruments and field recordings.

There are over 240 loops and more than 2gb of field recordings available royalty-free and for commercial use. The money generated by the library will be given back to communities where the recording took place.

Phil Holmes, senior lecturer at the university, told Sound On Sound: “The aim is to connect communities through music, and it’s a win-win situation – the communities receive income from the sales of the libraries and the music industry gets high-quality, unique sounds that can be used in new material.”

The Global Sound Movement hopes to continue the project with trips to Cyprus and China next year.

Check out some of the samples via SoundCloud below and head to the Global Sound Movement shop for more.
