I dabble in tonal sounds, but I’m a drummer at heart, so most of my uploads are straight percussion. I dabble in guitar and other tuned things. I especially love tuned percussion, as it’s that sweet intersection between rhythm/percussion and tonality.

Most of my sounds are loopable, and I will indicate the appropriate bpm in the upload. Some of the files are longer than their loopable length. For example the loopable part might be 4 quarter notes for a total of maybe 1.8 seconds, but the file itself might have a "tail" on it that makes it 2.3 seconds long. Just mess around with it in your sequencer, because it will work. I create my loops with mathematical precision, so if you can't get it to loop, you're not trying hard enough.

My microphone is a Zoom H4N. The only sound editing software I use is Audacity.
