Congrats Gareth, nice milestone to reach and totally agree, your posts are a useful resource to lots of us!
Bananas and tin drums plus spaghetti and a theramin occasionally. Other than that, Logic along with a vast range of purchased and homemade sampled instruments.
Yip, can be a little frustrating at times, but the music here is for a specific purpose (like film music, which is what I normally write too so I very much understand where you’re coming from). All production music is exactly that, music ready for productions that may or may not be to your liking.
If you look around, you’ll find some stunning tracks that don’t sell here because I think people don’t create productions that suit that that type of music. Just try and write with the common denominator in mind, no point trying to write music that doesn’t have a market. And remember it doesn’t have to be lame music either! It just has to work with the right type of productions.
I have been using Tabvn – now i just saw that its supposed to alert me of sales – anyone else have this problem?
Yes, it’s stopped working for me (iPhone 5 on iOS 6 – not interested in iOS7). Bit annoying really, I really like being notified as it cuts down on my OCD sales checking (a bit).
I’m thinking of getting some bass traps for my room too – Luca, are the foam options that bad? I was going to look into getting some, but if you think “lana minerale” (is that Italian for rockwool?) is better, I’ll look into those as well.
Yes, that’s totally fine – hope you find the music / sound you’re looking for!
You’ll need to upload it to Soundcloud first, then paste a link to the track in one of your comments in this thread. Sorry to hear you’ve been stung by this case, Alex Khaskin has done a great disservice to this whole industry and highlights how both authors and customers need to be protected more.
I hope you find a solution.
All the best,
