Bangin-Beats® provides music producers and composers with royalty free, licensed custom soundware products.
Specializing in professional recording and spectral editing of drums and percussive FX elements, our sounds & sample libraries have provided foundation for some of the music industry's most profilic artists.
Founded in 1996 as East Coast Soundworks, we originally offered sounds formatted for Akai (MPC), Ensoniq (ASR) and Roland (W30) instruments. Our print catalogs went out to beatmakers who responded to our tiny ads in the back of Electronic Musician and Keyboard magazine, and we quickly became known by a few of the top studios & producers around New York. Our stacks of floppies were flying out the door by the case-load.
In 2000 we launched as Bangin-Beats.com, offering an expanded library and expanded formats, and unwittingly pioneered the current business model that most online sound companies follow.
Top studios and producers are notorious for keeping their sound sources a closely guarded secret. We feel truly blessed to have so many speak out about our products.
Thanks for your continued support!
