99Sounds has released Vinyl Noise SFX, a free collection of vinyl noise and crackle sound effects created by Oregon based DJ and producer Matoto, aka Chia.

Chia has recorded 37 different vinyl noise samples with his Numark TTUSB turntable, using Numark GrooveTool as the stylus. The samples were recorded from different types of vinyl records, including various 7″ records from the 1980s along with a couple of modern 12″ dance records.

All included samples are provided in 16-bit WAV format, with additional SFZ and NKI mappings for use with NI Kontakt 5. The provided SFZ mappings can be loaded in freeware samplers such as Zampler or sforzando. Check the entire BPB review here:
