About The Audio Owl
The Audio Owl is a project born from a love of sound. Sound is all around us and it has a great impact in our day to day lives. The sounds we hear might influence the way we feel and might even influence our actions.
Sound is a powerful thing!
Much like the real world, the sounds used in your music will influence the way your music is perceived. The timbre of each instrument should align with the theme of your music.
That’s why we are here!
What We Do
Our goal is to supply music producers, bedroom producers and DJs with good sounding, high quality drum and instrument samples that work right “out-of-the-box”.
We love to record everything we can, from toy synthesizers to real drum machines to synthesized sounds. If we hear something in the sound, we will record it.
Analog is key, we send our samples through things like tape decks, guitar pedals, amplifiers, effects racks, basically whatever we can get our hands on.
We also strive to provide a playable instrument right after download. No pesky installs, just load up the sample or drum kit into your favourite DAW and start creating!
Each of our sample packs are crafted in-house and require a lot of time, patience, and practice to achieve the quality sound we do. Our samples are perfect for all levels of music production, musicians, producers, and DJs.
We specialize in creating samples for these genres:
- Lofi music
- Hip Hop
