Atmospheric soundscapes by The Unfinished!

Magnetic Fields is an eclectic collection of 50 dark and atmospheric soundscapes, crafted by Matt Bowdler aka The Unfinished. The idea behind the sounds is one of dusty, mechanical, hyperreal atmospherics. Glimpses into little worlds that may or may not exist.

The sounds were constructed with a variety of The Unfinished’s homegrown samples, which were then processed with a variety of NI Reaktor modules. Field recordings, vocals and drum loops have all been given the Magnetic Fields treatment, providing a cool collection of curiosities ideal for ambient, sci-fi and horror work.

The Unfinished is a composer, sound designer and producer based in London. He has worked on a variety of projects including Hollywood movies, hit US TV shows and AAA video games. You can take a look at some fantastic commercial sound design work but The Unfinished in his online shop.

I’m a big fan of The Unfinished’s sound design work and it’s a huge honor to have one of his sample libraries featured on 99Sounds. For a behind the scenes look at how The Unfinished makes his sounds, check out our Artist Spotlight interview with him.

Technical Details

Magnetic Fields contains 50 atmospheric soundscapes in 24-bit WAV format. All included sounds have been created by The Unfinished. The raw WAV files are included in the SAMPLES folder inside the download pack.

The download pack also contains a set of NKI instrument patches, which can be loaded inside NI Kontakt 5. The patches are based on a custom script which was kindly provided by Tudor Nastase aka Evoke.

The main NKI file is located in the root folder and it contains all 50 soundscapes which are mapped across the keyboard. A bonus set of tuned NKI patches is located in the BONUS PATCHES folder. These additional patches work very well for playing weird pads and lead sounds.

Finally, the library contains a simple SFZ instrument patches with all 50 samples mapped across the keyboard. The SFZ patch is located in the SAMPLES folder. You can use freeware instruments such as Zampler or sforzando to load the provided SFZ patch.

      Hi Geoff, I’m not sure if I follow. You’ve downloaded InterSpace, but you’re getting an empty archive? You should be getting a ZIP archive named [99Sounds] Interspace.zip when you click the download button.

    More proof, if we needed it, that “the best things in life are free”. These soundscapes are weird and wonderful, unusual and unsettling … my cuppa tea, right up my proverbial alley. Thanks, guys!

    I use many sounds like thse for game design. Sites like this one are invaluable. I’m actually fine with paying a small royalty, regardless, if the game makes money. Thank you.

    Hi, I’m not sure I understand the licence that downloads as a PDF with this library. Does the line ” You may not modify, adapt, create derivative works from or translate any part of the sample library, either for commercial benefit or otherwise.” limit it’s use in projects? Or just when selling as part of another library.

    Also, the next statement “You may use the content of these sample library in your own music productions, including library/production music, as long as the content is not used in isolation. You may not use the samples in a sample library.” only mentions music, can I assume that this also covers work with picture? e.g. film and game.

    Sorry, I get a bit wearing of licensing and like to know for sure!

    Cheers

      Hi Simon, yes it can look a bit confusing so no worries for asking! :)

      As you already said, it’s just to prevent re-selling and/or re-distributing of the sounds themselves (like making a new sample pack based on these exact samples or selling them in a VSTi plugin). You can safely use them in any other creative manner, such as a music track, a video project, a video game, anything that isn’t simply taking these sounds and selling them or distributing them elsewhere.

      I hope it makes more sense now!
