Welcome to Digital Sound Factory!

Digital Sound Factory’s mission is to develop and provide high quality license free audio sound downloads for computer software synthesizer users. We started the company in 2007 and have developed a line of exciting products. The Digital Sound Factory team of expert sound designers have recorded and produced all of the sound libraries available at our site.

Founder Timothy Swartz is a 20-year veteran producer of the E-mu Systems  sound libraries. The successful Emulator and Proteus sound products were a result of numerous recording sessions, sound processing, and programming to achieve the ultimate musical results. Hit songs, movies, television shows, and advertisements have been created using these comprehensive sound libraries. Digital Sound Factory libraries provide the opportunity to experience and use these world-renown sounds regardless of your current computer platform.
