Toy Instruments

Will work in most DAWs and notation software, using Plogue's sforzando!

     You are never too old to play around with these classic musical toys! Each pitch-based toy has been expanded to include the full chromatic scale and a couple extra notes past their original range. None of the instruments have been perfectly re-tuned, because what fun would that be?

     - Toy percussion: a drum, cymbals, tambourine, and 2 shakers

     - Up to 4x round robin

     - Sampled releases

     - Dry samples, for maximum flexibility

     - Works with Plogue's sforzando, a free SFZ player that functions as both a standalone player and a VST/AU/RTAS/AAX plugin, for use in a DAW or notation software

I have been composing original music for over a decade! My work has been heard in award-winning short films as well as audio dramas, private commissions, and performed live in concert.


To help me make my music, I create my own unique virtual instrument sample libraries, which are available for download by my fellow musicians and composers.


As a trumpet player, I have experience performing both classical music and jazz, earning awards and honors in both styles. See Full Bio
