Buying Choices

Sampleholics are new sample library company and with their new-ness is a refreshing honesty. This first collection of acoustic drums, filling the holes in the Stylus RMX catalogue - namely open hats, toms and cymbals as well as many other more available drums sounds is just $25. 

Why? And here's the straight talking bit: 

Why so cheap? Why are we selling a top notch collection at a price that basically ensures we will never recoup our investment (we're over 10 grand just in hiring the drummers. Not including any of the other costs involved in putting together a collection like this.) Simple. Because we're building a mailing list. You see, we're going to be rolling out some new instruments very soon. Instruments we know you'll want, because they're instruments WE'VE been wanting. So selling a must have collection like this at a ridiculous price is the fastest way to create a buzz and get attention to our company.



  • Kicks. From punchy close miked, to full on room sound. We even have a set called 
  • Caveman that you have to hear for yourself.
  • Snares. Close mic? Yep. Natural room ambience? Yep. Caveman? Yep.
  • Toms. Toms and hi-hats are what RMX lacks most, so yeah, we did it right.
  • HiHats. Yes, with open hats!
  • Ride cymbals. Tons. With alternates (L/R) for each cymbal, so patterns will sound realistic
  • Crash cymbals. Tons more.
  • And a whole bunch of extras, like cowbell, side sticks, rims, and brushes
