This sample library is influenced by the music of legendary R&B singer James Brown and his band the JBs, and captures the classic retro-soul sound of the 70s that is still popular today.

Big Fish Audio Darkness: Cinematic Sound Design

This sample collection is just as useful for Metal, Hip Hop and Grunge as it is for use in film, TV, and video games. All of the drones, rhythmic loops, soundscapes and effects were created from “real” sources such as metal bridges, cables, machines, and metal-stringed instruments such as waterphones, detuned autoharps, and one very old piano harp.
