We've got an epic slow jam (is that a live drummer?), a slammin' 80's track, and an amazing Aphex rework. Plus a cinematic runner up. Which is your fav?

Would anybody be interested in some SUMMING ?

...

Summing through an analog console is simple: send your individual tracks from your DAW out to the desk, adjust some panning, and record a stereo bounce back. No processing or volume changes at all. No tape. No subjective tweaking.

For years (before I had a desk), I wondered if it made a difference - but unfortunately this isn’t the kind of thing you can just read about on gearlsutz and be convinced one way or the other.

My take: YES!! 🤯 Summing sounds incredible, esp on a console like the API 1608, with conversion like the Apogee Symphony. The original, pre-summed mix sounds somehow compressed in comparison (it wasn’t) and the summed result sounds more open, huge, and has a more “hardware” sound, if that makes any sense.

But let’s forget about ambiguous adjectives. Is this SUMthing you’d be interested in me doing with your tracks, so you can be the judge ?

Fake it till you make it 💥

Samples From Mars began in a bedroom. I’d never made samples before. I had unwittingly stumbled upon the magic of tape after James Murphy threw his Otari out and I grabbed it. The sound blew my mind and I thought “hey what if I can make samples as a love letter to old gear, instead of Dubstep Drops VOL 40”

So I rented a car, drove to NJ, rented 3 drum machines, and made the first packs. I was not precious about them and I put them out before they were perfect. (I strongly advise you to do the same with your creations)

For the next 3 years every day was a puzzle: how to make enough to quit my job renting speakers 🤔, so I could put more hours into sampling hardware than anybody else in the world... and become an expert

Once I’d studied enough marketing (lol but true), I was (barely) able to go full time. This gave me the hours I needed, but it was a GRIND. I couldn’t afford to get sick, and I’d miss rent trying to perfect the next sample pack. I was still trying to understand what packs did well and why (oh nobody wanted minilogue samples? Cool...tell that to my landlord!)

...And so the hustle continued. I kept getting kicked out of makeshift spots for being too loud. I debated moving out of NYC. I debated finding another job.

Until in 2017 I said “F* it” and created a sale that gave away everything on the site for an insanely low price.

There’s a lot more to it, but I’ll just say that the sale went against all marketing theory, except “try everything”, which is ultimately the most important 😉

The sale made enough to turn the studio into the reality it is today (and what you thought had existed all along?). I bought all the gear I had rented or sold. I invested in my team (no, that’s not me in the first pic) who I am forever grateful for 🙏🏻

And all of this is thanks to YOU. You are the reason I didn’t quit; you turned my bedroom into the studio it is today. There has never been any outside investment, there’s just been you. THANK YOU ❤️.

This is not to say that life is easy - SFM is still a GRIND, but a much more enjoyable one! And the story continues...

...Oh, and I almost forgot: today is the last day of our sale 😉

Secret mic position! This Coles gets basically the whole kit. Aim it at the snare, and move forward / backward for bass adjustment. Mix in other mics to taste. Then, record to cassette! 🤪

Hello everybody, Is Sample from mars working with kontakt 6.4.2 ? Thanks! D.
Just listened to the top 3 sounds that won... they all sound great... to bad I didn't get to finish my own song to submit... I think mine was very unique.. it was ska/punk tune... Love all the songs submitted... great little contest... just to me all the songs seem un-original... all the typical same beats and sounds that saturate this this market... still all very well done... quality wise... just don't see really any uniqueness in any of the top 3... nothing different same old same... my two sense... but i can't complain, since I never submitted my tune :) just saying... i was hoping something less generic would have won :)
Yo! Just want to give a big thank you to Grensta and Psyco Disco! for supporting my new forthcoming track on OKNF "Show U" on their Psychic FM mix. The link to the mix will be in the comments! Can't wait for this one to drop for you guys, working on some new serious heat in the meantime!!
Electropop-ish track made with CR78 (Kit 2), 303 (Italo 303), OB (Saw Pad) and Soviet Synths From Mars (Mexican History, Murder She Wrote, Kompromat). There's also some PG8X on top.

Hey Guys. I bought all your samples but the lead sounds don't load up in TX16Wx - the drums do but not the leads - is there a way to make them work?
"This site can’t be reachedsamplesfrommars.com took too long to respond."
Thank you for the Oberheim samples. It's my favourite synth sound. In this recording from 1978 you can hear me playing an Oberheim SEM-4, one of the earliest polyphonic Synthesizers and a very early predecessor of the OB-X series. The sound is identical. And no, it wasn't a hit record, although we hoped so....
