I think I typed in, “how to make money selling your music online,” into Google?
I remember those. The best part is when he (usually) gives them gear at the end of the video.
Soniccouture has a free Brush kit, I think you just have to register on their site to download it. If I remember correctly, it’s a little weird in that it doesn’t follow the General Midi Drum Map, but it’s probably useable if you spend some time with it.
I heard this one the other day.
Also you could throw my piano song in if you want
Ah, that’s what’s going on. Yeah, I hear Hollywood strings and Hollywood brass are pretty big resource hogs, but $500 off is almost irresistible.
Hey guys, what’s the world on the street as far as sample library discounts? Just got an e-mail from Soniccouture, they are selling everything 40% off this week. I’ll probably pick up their broken Wurli because I always thought it sounded particularly spectacular. I’ve also noticed Hollywood Strings/Hollywood brass have been on sale for $500 each, which seems pretty low to me. I don’t know if that’s a special or new pricing. sampletekk also has a 50% sale going on right now. Already missed a few black Friday sales. Anyone else know of any good deals? I think it’s time to buy myself some Christmas presents.
I have to say that puzzle looks like a pain in the ass.
So what is it a picture of, an ice castle?
It might be hard to judge composers from most of the work sold here, because most of it isn’t necessarily the kind of work you would find in a score…scoring is a little different, as it’s writing music in response to something or to enhance something rather than writing a catchy tune, and there’s a finer level of subtlety. Still, there are tons of people here who are likely capable of it…it just might be hard to find the one you need. It might help a little if you explained what kind of score you were looking for. A traditional orchestral score, ambient, modern/electronic, upbeat, ect, as there are some really fine people here who excel in these different categories, and all of these can be made to sound inspiring.
Well said Patrick; whenever I hear a choir these days I feel my eyes roll a little, as they seem to be an occasional part of the Percussion+Percussion+Horns+Staccato Strings EPIC formula. Not to say that they can’t be well used (the Williams example is a good one) but more often than not they are being thrown in to achieve a bigger sound cheaply and quickly…which is fine, but I feel like more composers could be using the full orchestral palette to achieve the same thing (Holst’s Mars?)...but then of course, you wouldn’t end up with the characteristic 2 Steps From Hell Sound sound everyone is lusting after these days.
I don’t really own too many choir patches but if I was in the market I might consider Cinesamples Voxos? Their stuff is usually pretty good.
