PRODUCERS: UNIQUE, HOT, FREE sounds for your next killer track! - NOT AN AD.
I don’t recommend much stuff and this is not a paid endorsement of any kind. I happened to stumble upon SOUND INNOVATORS and I just want to spread the word.
I LOVE THESE SAMPLES. Granted, they only seem to have KONTAKT files that work with Native Instruments KONTAKT player, but I don’t mind that. They sound great! They are NOT like those crappy free samples you normally see on the internet. NO.
“All the samples were recorded in 96Khz/24Bit.”
Right now you can download some UNIQUE samples of pot lids, screws in a glass jar, wine glasses and more. They even have samples of a fly buzzing against a window. You might wonder what you would do with such things, but DON’T wonder. GO listen. Let your ears tell you! I wondered the same thing until I took the time to hear these samples. HOT!
You can check them out here —> http://soundinnovators.wordpress.com/
They also have a soundcloud page: https://soundcloud.com/sound-innovators.
Check them out!! you might want to get these while you can and if you really love them, DONATE! They’re just asking for a minimum of 1 Euro! Yes… ONE Euro for all of this goodness!!
I assume they will be releasing paid or donation only libraries when they get popular enough… and if they keep up this level of GREAT WORK, they will get popular!
Their samples will definitely be in my tracks!!! Download yours and tell one of your fellow producers to take a listen!

The Power of Music -> Over the Creators
First I’d like to say… Sorry. No posts in a while. Mega post on Monday.
I’ve been editing a song about the POWER OF MUSIC. When we talk about the power of music, we usually refer to it’s impact on the listener. Never do we discuss the power of this thing on the creators of music. I think it’s about time we have that discussion.
The song I’m editing had an hour of vocals about what music makes (we) CREATORS do and I know you creators (out there) know what I’m talking about. You know… The weekend creeps up and everyone else is trying to hit the club, bar, movies, eatery, etc… But you..???!?! You’re trying to finish (insert your thing here - beats, song, solo or that uber idea you’ve been banging in your head for a week).
Got an idea, but you’re in the mall or at a concert? You step away, call your cell phone and leave yourself a message… beat-boxing and/or humming and/or crooning… and u might be a producer, not a singer. You don’t care.
That image has a typo… Anyways…
You take this
shit for granted. You don’t know what its like to live this way. You don’t know what its like to put a piece of yourself in everything you do… that is… if you’re making honest music. We put a piece of ourselves in every HONEST piece of music we make… And Prince made how many songs…? Imagine that.
If the listeners of music think music is a drug, then what is it to the creators of the art? I say it is worse than any drug you can take. While the world sleeps, we are up trying to get that perfect lick… or that one line for the 2nd verse. We’re tyring two communicate, sometimes without ever uttering a syllable. We don’t need body language, we speak it in tones and melodies. We spend all this time and money buying, learning how to use and breaking these things that make music, but we can’t help it. We are NOT 100% in control. To deny the urge is to kill a piece of yourself, bury it and mark it with tombstone that reads:
“Here lies the real me no one ever got to hear. I am dead. I don’t know who that other John Non-Music-Making Doe is, but he is not me. I am dead. Tragic. John Doe will live as a professional unhappy butthead from this day forward.”
Anything and everything you experience can be a song, beat or some type audible piece for the ears of unsuspecting listeners. You can’t experience a sunset, a cute couple in the spring, a tragic event, the plight of people or last nights beautiful disaster without hearing a song. What about that person you saw for five seconds at the checkout register. He/She was a hot BEAT! That damn car is my next rap. That cloud is someones concerto. Any and everything could be your next track. Your life IS music, 24/7. You live everyday in song (in your head).
It’s CRAZY!!! But I could go on about this forever… So — thats what I’ve been working on… That and the rest of my accidental EP.
Any creators have any thoughts on music and it’s effects on you (please use the ASK ME button in the top nav to respond)????
HELP: Name Me (Part II)
I’ll keep this brief. I need a producer name! Actually, I need producer names.
I created a post where people could submit their suggestions here, but there were some technical issues. I didn’t receive any responses. Plus, it seems as though users must be logged into TUMBLR to submit info to me that way (not cool). BUT - have no fear. I have a work around!
Here is how it works:
1. Send me your name(s) and an email address here
2. I will try to come up with some nifty
prizes gifts (thus, the need for your email address… unless you don’t want anything) for the creators of the selected names
3. Selected names + no email = THANKS, but I won’t send you anything. You’re so kind and generous. You should be a SAINT!
What potential swag might you receive?
I really don’t know, but I’m a generous (and crazy) person. I might send you a flip cam’ with footage. I’d love to send an ipod shuffle or something, but that kinda sucks b/c of Apples tech restrictions. Maybe a CD of stuff. Maybe some natural soap and some bath salts… I signed $2 bill. Who knows?!?!?!? Who cares? GET CREATIVE AND SEND IN THOSE NAME SUGGESTIONS =)!
If you want to know WHY I need a producer name, read this post.
+Singers, Songwriters, Producers, Beat makers, etc. -- good article.
I skimmed this so far, but I’m def’ coming back to read it. Off topic, I love the weeknd.
If you’re in LA:
You might wanna check this out. Pieces displayed until August 18th!
