Sampleheads was founded by New York City session musicians/producers Jeremy Roberts, Chris Hajian and Will Lee to create the ultimate live feeling sounds for samplers. Our objective was to capture the musical essence of the artist, as well as the instrument. Our belief is that sampled sounds must retain the organic nature of the performance (the feel), or else you're left with the sterile sound that we've come to expect from off-the-shelf and stock sounds.
