About Audio Artemis
The concept of Audio Artemis is a place for women and gender minorities to sell their samples, sample instruments and libraries and in doing so, helping to rebalance the industry. It’s also a place for women and gender minorities to share advice and tips and product demos.
Although this place is primarily for people who have been left out or left behind in the sampling world because of their gender, anyone is welcome to check out and buy the products on offer. Financial support is a valuable tool in helping to sustain this community and redressing the gender imbalance.
If you identify as a woman or a gender minorities of any kind and would like to sell your work or engage in the sampling community here, feel free to get in touch!
Site Manager: Jo Ranger
Jo Ranger is a composer, orchestrator, audio samplist, and musician. Hailing from Wiltshire and living in south east England, she’s worked on a wide variety of projects including film, TV, production music, sample libraries, and artist albums. Notable composing works so far include British Council backed documentary film I Am Michelle, The Last Guest with fellow BAFTA crew members and starring Harry Potter’s Nick Moran, and 1NS made with NYFA “Emerging Brits”. She’s also written production music, and released an EP of neoclassical solo trombone music Colours for Trombone, which was written and performed by Jo and recorded at the Abbey Road Institute in Abbey Road Studios.
Despite being a keen user of sample libraries of all varieties for a number of years, sampling is still something fairly new to her, although she’s quite a quick learner. Nonetheless, she’s created a few instruments and libraries that you can find for sale here. She’s also keen to help other women and gender minorities in their sampling journeys, and is happy to be support others through sampling and scripting services that she can offer.

Through advocacy, support and education, the Alliance for Women Film Composers aims to increase the visibility of women composers active in media scoring. The AWFC advocates for the inclusion of women composers within industry events; supports filmmakers, game developers and studios in their inclusion of women composers; and educates, mentors and inspires emerging women composers.
Audio Artemis would like to particularly thank the AWFC’s UK Director of Relations Jenna Fentimen for all the support she has provided so far, and for just being an all-round great gal!
The Pianobook community of volunteers, lead by Christian Henson, have provided a massive help to Jo and Audio Artemis so far in our early days. Sharing a common goal – to help grow a grassroots community of audio samplists – Pianobook provides a place for anyone to share their sampling creations and provide help and encouragement to others in their sampling journey.
Audio Artemis would like to particularly thank Christian for his unwavering commitment to gender equality in the industry, Stephen Tallamy and Angus Roberts-Carey for their ingenious fixes to scripting conundrums, and Peter Clark for his advice on that most pesky of things – web design.
