Record Crackle Sample

admin 1/7/2022

Constant crackle is almost certainly permanent, incurable damage. Sadly, in the UK, most pop and rock LPs of the 1960s were trashed by repeated playing on the ubiquitous Dansette portable record player and other poor quality players. It wasn't until hi-fi started to become a mass market phenomenon in the 1970s that record care improved. The royalty free vinyl crackle loops, samples and sounds listed here have been kindly uploaded by other users and are free to use in your project.

Recently I've been talking with you guys who go to the IRC channel about this — here are 37 (more than three dozen!) samples of authentic, old school crackly noisy bits you get from playing vinyl. None of these have been EQed, compressed or otherwise post-processed in any way so you are free to do as you wish with them, and for those of you who are worried about copyright all of these samples are royalty-free too!
