the sound of STUFF
A punchy kit of Drum & Perc Samples crafted using Foley Recordings, Household Objects, and other Stuff.
Organic Drums that Pack a Punch
My deepest fascination lies in just how much you can tweak sounds recorded in the real world. From household objects, to pets, to ambiences, and your own voice – acoustic recordings can be turned into truly otherworldly things.
To create a punchy yet organic drum kit, I recorded various objects like lawn furniture, mechanical keyboards, basketballs, and more which resulted in the sound of STUFF / foley drums.
These sounds have a depth to them that most synthesized drums just can’t offer and can stand on their own or provide extremely capable material for layering on top of your existing drums!
Most of these sounds were recorded with a Zoom F1-SP at 96 kHz and exported at 44.1 kHz after processing. On top of that, selection of sounds were created by processing 60 year old field recordings captured off of pristine vintage tapes and public domain vinyl records.

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.
