Range igniter = a whole ding-dang beat

My iPhone in flame
I had to.

Hey! I put my iPhone right on up next to the burner ring on our gas range and sampled the igniter and the flame bursting to life. From that I made

  • a kick,
  • 2 snare layers,
  • 2 percussion layers,
  • an atmospheric topper,
  • a really sweet distant snare/cowbell accent,
  • a remarkably smooth bass, and
  • a pretty sweet tremolo pad.

Get all of those sounds and the beat, for free, wrapped up all nice in a GarageBand for iPhone project by clicking the big button above. You can also check out my Skillshare class on iPhone sampling, in which I sampled a bunch of other things in my kitchen and turned them into playable instruments just using GarageBand.

Come on back every week for new downloads containing 2 components each: an original, unprocessed recording of some non-musical thing; and a GarageBand for iOS project containing the Sampler instrument(s) that I’ve made with that recording.
