Performed by Joe Martone
Recorded at the legendary Village Studio

Part of the Farm Samples Drums Vol. 1 bundle, an entire family of vintage snare drums from the personal collection of Joe Martone. This pack of 5 classic snares, 2 piccolo snares, and 7 field drums, gives you an unprecedented level of control. As with all of our percussion packs, you can dial in a single crisp snare sound or engage “ensemble” mode and achieve the sound of 1,000 snares. Each drum was lovingly sampled in 96k at the famous Village Studios in Los Angeles. Whether you need the sound of a solitary solder or the entire army, this library has you covered.

We created these libraries out of the need for detailed control over our drum sounds. Not only control of each individual drum sound but also the ability to control the number of players. Every single drum is available in solo, trio, and ensemble modes putting limitless combinations of sounds and players at your fingertips. Each library was meticulously programmed by us, the composers, internally. This means the interface may not be fancy, but it’s efficient. You’ll get incredible performances and you’ll get them quickly. You can move at the speed of your ideas.


“Remember how lucky we are that we get to PLAY music”

Nima said this when we were deep into a large film project and he could sense building frustration within the team. It really resonated and has become something of a mantra between us. More often than not, our best ideas are the result of a period of play or exploration. When we’re guided by our ears and our imaginations, not the deadlines and creative confines imposed by a particular project, we’re at our best.

Farm Samples are the results of this process and we’re delighted to share them with you.
