AfroDJMac & pATCHES are joining forces with you to create a whistle pack! Per our conversation on the Music Production Podcast, we are crowdsourcing a free whistle-based collection of instruments & samples. You can help by recording a whistle & sending it to us! Use any type of recording equipment you have - a studio mic, & iPhone, anything - & sustain a few notes. Then upload the audio & submit the link using the form below or email We want as many kinds of whistles as possible, so don't worry if it's "not that good" - we still want the audio!



AfroDJMac on the pack:

I am a terrible whistler. I can muster up a few notes in a very limited range, and have no control over the pitch. My dog looks at me funny when I try to call her with a whistle. It's kind of sad...

And usually when I can't do something, I start building sample instruments from those sounds. The guys from pATCHES and I were talking and we decided we wanted a nice whistling sound pack. So we are calling on all you whistlers!

All you have to do is record yourself whistling a few notes. Record it however you like... Break out that Neumann U87, hook it up to your Neve console, and hit record... or reach in your pocket for your iPhone; it doesn't matter! If you've followed me for any amount of time, you know that there's no such thing as a bad sample when building instruments!.The goal is to collect as many whistling samples as we can and build a great collection. Everyone who submits will be credited. Submitting is easy.
