sounds of NAMM’22

Various Loops, melodic Fragments, Sound Effects, and sonic Tidbits captured at the 2022 NAMM Show

Sonic Curiosities captured at one of the biggest, and loudest, Music Conventions.

Thousands upon thousands of musicians, instrument makers, and other music industry professionals gather together at the annual NAMM Show in Anaheim California, and it’s just as loud as you’d think it would be.

Nevertheless, between all the noise there are always some amazing jams and musical happenings that will catch your ear and make you stand and listen for a while.

I took the 2022 show as an opportunity to walk through the halls with a field recorder in hand, capturing every interesting sound I could capture in a somewhat isolated manner. The result is probably my weirdest sample pack to date but it certainly contains some really useful yet quirky musical tidbits. Enjoy!

About me

Hi there! My name is Chris and I'm a sound designer and audio mixing & mastering engineer based in scenic mountain region of Berkshire County, Massachusetts. While my background has been performing and recording music, it was the process of creating my first ever musical sample pack, Low'n'Slow, that truly made me fall in love with sound design in 2019.

Since then, I've started designing sound effects for video games, sampled rare synthesizers and drum machines, turned field recordings into contemporary hip hop drum kits, and created loops for fellow producers to use. During the course of the pandemic, I realized creating sounds for film and games was something I really wanted to pursue and while working towards that goal, I also started creating sound libraries for fellow sound professionals, video editors, and multimedia artists.

I strive to provide uncompromising, meticulously captured high-quality audio assets at an affordable price and help creatives at all stages of their career find the right colors for their sonic palette. My Blog also provides insight into my process, and my gear page highlights what equipment I use to create these libraries.
