Sam Hughes speaks to Sam Estes and Michael Hobe, founders of Sonicsmiths about sampling for Hans Zimmer, founding Sonicsmiths and their new product The Foundry.

Listen to the full interview below:

Sam and Michael met while working at Hans Zimmer’s company, Remote Control Productions (2008-2012) and both left together to join the team at Cinesamples. During their tenure at Cinesamples (2012-2014) developing commercial libraries, they continued producing private sound design and samples for composers including Danny Elfman, Michael Giacchino, Junkie XL (Tom Holkenborg), and Christopher Lennertz.

Sam and Michael left Cinesamples to form Sonicsmiths, a company dedicated to providing sound-design based soundtracks, unique sound design tools, and digital instruments.
