Vintage Filmscapes

A palette of beautiful melodies, atmospheres and provocative beats for film and television composers and sample enthusiasts. Broken down in to four genre categories of Sci-Fi, Romance, Crime and Drama, the sounds have been designed to inject raw emotion to your productions, and provide inspiration to be developed further. 

Paul Rez Studio Tour

After receiving some great reviews in Computer Music and Music Tech Magazine, we asked the composer of award winning sample library ‘Analogue Witchcraft’ to show us around his studio and talk about some of the vintage gear he used to create the sounds with. Gear nerds, this one is for you!

Competition Winner

There were some phenomenal entries to the sound design competition we held last month, thanks so much to everyone who entered and made this a great contest. After hours of listening to the entries, some over and over again, we finally decided on the winners…and what worthy winners they are!
Check them out here.

We got hold of a dusty old vinyl player and set about ripping it to shreds, then recording the outcome. The result is a surprisingly useful collection of sounds, which we are giving away for free!

What we’re up to…

We’re working on making our website a bit more interactive and easy to navigate. Soon all of our product pages will have video walkthroughs so you know exactly what to expect inside, and links to reviews and other information. Any suggestions or ideas you have are very welcome!

We’d also like to say a sad farewell to our designer Nina, who has gone to work full time with our friends over at Soundcloud. We wish her the best of luck in Berlin! In her place, we’d like to say hello to James Hunter, who after seeing his work for Portishead, we just had to invite to come and work with us. Welcome aboard sir!
