Magpie Sample Packs


Welcome to the Magpie Sample packs!
All sample packs will be listed down low on this page.
But the latest "Secret Sample Pack" is what you find to the right!

Don't forget to join the magpie pirate crew on discord to collab with other people!

Did you make something?!

Did you make something with a magpie sample pack? Upload it to your youtube/bandcamp/soundcloud and shoot me the link!
Tell me which pack you used and you'll end up in a Magpie Pirates album based on that sample pack.

You can of course fuck up the samples and add your own sounds to the track you make!

    Mimon Sample - Sonar Week

    This is the Sonar week. Unfortunately as a poor old man whose bike has been stolen I cannot afford to attend this year.
    But I can noise. So camión fill the noise.
    Self made stuff, and electronica is no exception, always tastes good.
    Second iteration of Simon the Magpie Secret Sample Pack 1 and VCV Rack.

    I like random and noisy, so walked the Simon the Magpie Secret Sample Pack challenge and randomized a bit the play and effects in VCV Rack.
    Everything low cost and virtual.
    No furry animals have been abused to make this stuff,,,, mostly.

    This song started off with the bells and the waves heard throughout the track, which I then layered with about 15 of the samples from the secret pack to add texture under the drums and the pad.

    I started this song with the melody that immediately begins the song, and as soon as I saw you had uploaded the Secret Sample pack I knew I wanted to utilize it.

    Here's my sample recipe:
    -I used sample 10 as the shaker(?) in the beginning.
    -Sample 1 worked as the kick.
    -Sample 20 was used as a one of the wave-table oscillators for the synth that starts at ~27 seconds.
    -And more inclusively (than sample 20) I used the entirety of sample 18 to make an oscillating wavetable that formed the noise-y bass synth that starts at 1:36.
    -Lastly I used the clicking from sample 3 to double the base of that arpeggio (sample starts at 2:03).

    Now for the inspiration behind the song: I kept going back to the idea of nature when working on it. Like just being enraptured by nature and huge entities of it, mountains for instance. I dunno man, it's whatever anyone listening wants it to be though.

    Also since I'm working on an album at this point, I've been spending a shit load of time on songs, so I wanted to make it a challenge to spend less than a week on a song for this one.

    So this is what i threw together. Really fun idea, it helps with the creative flow. Maybe half of the sounds are from the samplepack #1 and the rest is other. Oh, and a VolcaBass.
  • hey!
    The track has been removed? Wanna try link it again or did you decide not to share it anymore?
    Im really looking forward to what you where able to do with the samples together with the bass :D

    hey, It's matt again, I made a track using only your samples that you sent us, some of the tones are made just through heavy editing and others from slowing some of the samples way down but this weird little disjointed track is the result

If you make something with this sample pack and link it to me - it will be included in the video where I show how I made that sample pack!
