FAQ

Q: When I try to unzip the zip file I downloaded I'm getting an "Error" or "Corrupted file" message. What do I do?

A: Visit our support page and follow the instructions. This is not a super common thing that happens, but some users experience this issue. Do not worry your file is not corrupted or broken. Your stock unzipping software just can't handle unzipping a file that is over 2 GB. We have further instructions on that page.

Q: Why are your samples stereo?​

A: Most of our samples are stereo because we mix them down through analog equipment and go for a slight stereo effect on some of them. With our analog equipment there are always slight differences between left and right which creates a bigger sound and image. If you prefer mono, simply just split the track into two mono samples. 

Q: Are your drum sample libraries a plugin that I can use in a DAW?

A: No, our libraries do not include a plugin or software that you install. Our libraries are .wav files that you can import into sessions, samplers, ect... to help you make a track. Simply add our libraries to your drum sample folders on your computer. We do offer presets for some plugins and VSTs. Check below for more info.

Q: What is your refund policy?

A: Because we offer digital products and they cannot be returned, we do not offer refunds. We offer many demos of the audio in the libraries and even have free samples that can be downloaded before purchasing. We will refund you if our store software lets us know that you haven't downloaded the product yet or your account was incorrectly charged. 

Q: Are your samples and loops Royalty Free?

A: Yes our samples and loops are 100% Royalty Free. You can use them in your tracks, mixes, songs, videos. Restricted Use of our Products: You cannot resell or remix/repurpose our samples and loops to be used in a library you sell or market. 

Q: Do you offer any presets with your libraries?

A: Yes, all of our libraries will come with presets. We offer .TCI and .GOG trigger files for our samples as well. We are currently working on Reason 11 Kong Kits, Battery 4 Kits, Kontakt 6 Kits, Ableton 11 Drum Rack Presets, Perfect Drums Presets, and Logic EXS24 / Logic Sampler Presets for each of our libraries. 
** Ableton 11 Presets are not backwards compatible with previous versions (ie: Ableton 10) - They are forward compatible.
Visit here for more info on compatibility.


** Kontakt 6 Presets are not backwards compatible with previous versions (ie: Kontakt 5) - They are forward compatible.
Visit here for more info on compatibility.


Q: Do your samples, loops, and presets work with Garageband?

A: Our samples and loops can be imported into Garageband. Our kit presets do not work with Garageband at this time. How to import audio into Garageband on a Mac - How to import audio into Garageband for iPad/iPhone

Q: Can you import your samples into electronic drum set modules or MPC/Akai?

A: Our samples can be imported into some electronic drum modules. We offer 44.1 kHz / 24 Bit Stereo .WAV files. If your drum module can handle that type of file then you should be able to import it. We have noticed a lot of drum modules are looking for Mono files or 16 Bit files. This can easily be done with various DAWs by importing our samples and exporting them in Mono and adding dither for 16 Bit. MPC and Akai type modules should take stereo 44.1 kHz / 24 Bit .WAV files. If not, then you must import into a DAW and export the file type you would need.

Q: How are your presets MIDI Mapped?
