  1. Hey Semantik, I’m after some percussion sounds, mostly crashes because mine sound corny or I keep using the same one(s). Im willing to pay for a percussion pack.


  2. I suggest you dig through some records and you will find some good stuff.

    …But that’s too much work huh?

  3. There’s a record store down the street from me and its about 11 minutes. I spent $100 on 3 records one time. All the records are too expensive so I stick to digging on blogs and I’m not even sampling that much anymore.
