Soundoracle.net presents Cassette Drums. An aggressive mixture of kicks, snares, hats, and percussion loops processed with the warm beauty and brutality of worn out cassette tapes.
Since the late 1940’s, Analog Tape has been vital in the creation of a warm and exotic saturated sound that has become a staple, not only in American Culture but also Worldwide. Emitting a gritty and dirty characteristic, this sonic quality helped give birth to some of the hard-hitting genres we know and love today. With these elements in mind, I proudly bring to you Cassette Drums.
This collection is quintessential in giving your beats a thick and heavy “In Your Face” sound that serves perfectly to add some rugged and warm contrast to some of your cleaner compositions. With this pack alone, no expense was spared in creativity. Taking old Vintage Cassette Tape Players (Ampex, Tascam, Marantz, Sony, and Fostex) and meticulously handcrafting and recording to each specific brand. My aim was to use them in “As Is” condition with no calibration. This helped create an unorthodox “Straight out of the Basement” sound, filled with harmonic gritty saturation in a league of its own.
Cassette Drums is a downloadable (WAV Format) kit containing over 160 Modern Earth-Shattering Kicks, Snares, and Hi-hats along with Epic Royalty Free Percussion Loops that will incite sheer creativity for any Music Producer. Whether your genre is Trap, EDM, R&B, or Boom Bap Hip Hop, look no further to quench your musical ambitions.

Best known as producer and chief sound designer for multi-platinum producer Timbaland, Sound Oracle's work has appeared on productions for the likes of Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown and Christina Aguilera.
One would define an Oracle as “a supplier of wisdom and insightful counsel”. However, when coupled with a personal quest to inspire the aspiring by adopting a system of authentic storytelling and originality there then lays the outline of the very existence of who the SoundOracle is.
Successfully mastering the skill to produce music was a dream sketched in the youthful imagination of Virginia native, SoundOracle. Yet, despite the shortage of music mentors and influencers within the DMV area, the producer and sound designer went on to prove that bringing reality to childhood aspirations is as simple as setting small challenges to test the confines of one’s own ability to overcome them. Wielding guts and gall from the sheer passion of all things production related, an introverted SoundOracle galvanized his motivation from the fear of dying in obscurity and set out on a mission to manipulate sound by incorporating the beauty from colorfully transient noise into the Aesthetic realm of music.
Developing as a self-taught student in music and digital culture, SoundOracle courageously took a leap of faith by relocating to Georgia in 2008 where he persistently trekked the Atlanta strip knocking on studio doors with the intent to be heard. After earning his first big break with the Polow Da Don, the Oracle, crossed paths with a fellow Virginia native and is now best known as Producer and Chief Sound Designer for Multi-Platinum Producer Timbaland. In building up his core skills by incrementally mastering hardware, DAWs, constructing and coding his own system of artificial intelligence, production kits, voice technology, & commands scripts, SoundOracle was able to springboard his passions off the premise of music.
With notable accomplishments of securing placements in over 20 Grammy nominated projects specific to Jay-Z’s Magna Carta LP and Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, SoundOracle wasted no time in repurposing the digital landscape of music & traversing a global road of creativity and innovation with waves of originality. His work has been accentuated by the likes of Beyoncé, Chris Brown, Christina Aguilera and many other peak performing artists.
SoundOracle is an autodidact who deviated from a common baseline structure & evolved into a Librarian of Sound. With a vested interest in multiplying his purpose, The Oracle is visioned to instill the principles of production through mentorship and provide producers with incredible sounds and quality resources. Through his website SoundOracle.net and on multiple social platforms, SoundOracle proves he is everything but self-serving yet he is a staple in the community of music and a true hallmark in the field of technology.
