FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION - Below you will find examples of and answers to the most commonly asked questions.
1. Wow!!!! Your virtual instruments, sample packs and midi packs sound AMAZING!!!! Why are they so inexpensive? Crazy great prices!
First, THANK YOU! That means the world to us! - We are able to keep the cost of about 98% of our virtual instruments incredibly low in a few ways. First, we own our sampling/recording studio located outside of Los Angeles, CA. Next, we focus on the SOUND of our libraries and NOT the millions of useless GUI features that take forever to code, forever to figure out and in the end, just get in your way and slow you down. (For example: When you want a gong sample..., you want a gong sample... Press a key... get a gong sample... You dig?) Lastly, we've acquired 100's of amazing instruments from around the world over the past several years and now have an incredible collection to sample from. Dope right?
2. I LOVE your vibes and your company seems sooooooooooo cool! Can I work for you? Please?
Again, THANK YOU! The short answer is, maybe! We Are currently looking to fill a few unique positions on our team. Please visit the Jobs page located under the "About Us" category in the menu bar at the top of our website.

10. Hey Yo's!? I have a cool idea for a virtual instrument! Do you guys take recommendations for future releases?
Yes! We're always hunting for strange and unusual instruments to sample and would LOVE any recommendations you may have for future virtual instruments. Be sure to follow us on Instagram @samplehero1 and send a private message to Beth with your suggestions.

Oh Snap! In the unlikely event the website freaks out and your download stalls, send and e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll straight up wetransfer.com that software to you if we have to and we'll do it with the quickness!
12. Dang Yo! I'm not diggin' the software guys... Can I received a refund?
Bummer! Unfortunately, due to the nature of virtual instruments, sample libraries and SFX products, we do not offer refunds in any way ever! We are sorry for the inconvenience. Thankfully however, we do price all of our products at a great low price! BUT, if you're truly not diggin' the software and you happen to be an LA local, let's grab a coffee and talk about it. Maybe we can improve the product based on your feedback. We'll even buy the coffee... but it has to be high-end gourmet coffee... No chain coffee for us! :)
13. The amazingly dope product I just ordered says, "DEMO MODE" and then turns off after only 10-15mins of usage? Sup Wit Dat?
Yup! This is NOT by our choice and is a feature of Native Instruments Kontakt. If you use their "FREE-PLAYER" you will sadly encounter this. When you upgrade to the FULL-PLAYER, your SampleHero products will work as desired! :)
