The artist known as Stretta aka Matthew Davidson has released a free 3GB sound library. He works with Wendy Carlos and is a regular music contributor to NPR (public radio). He also make a living as a graphic designer.
The sound library was created using his modular synth, a Dave Smith Evolver, Waldorf Microwave and Roland R8 drum machine. The sounds are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 United States License. This means your free to use them in your work as long as you state where the samples came from.
Fragments of the Total Harmonic Distortion sample library have popped up in various places, like the recent OLPC Sample Library Set… This stuff isn’t doing anyone any good sitting on my hard drive. I’d like to make it available to the public. – stretta.blogspot.com
You can download the library from legaltorrents.com. The direct link is:
I received an email today from a guy named Waldek. He asked me to check out his site Beatmatch.info and post some news about it here. I’m open to requests and as long as the site is cool and music tech orientated I don’t mind sharing it with everyone here. Well since you see this post that means Beatmatch.info has some worth to us!
They have four packs of AIFF/Wav downloads available. You can use the sounds in non-commercial work using a Creative Commons licence. For more about Creative Commons read my post titled “Put a Creative Commons License to your music.“. If you do decide you want to use the samples in something commercial you can contact them and work out a deal.
Beatmatch.info is a new project aiming to provide fresh and original electro loops and dj tools for producers looking for fresh and cool sounds. Beatmatch.info soundlibraries and loop packs are great tools for modern music producers who want to explore new grounds or simply add a new flavor to their unique music style. Beatmatch.info just released 2 new loop packs – “Mnml data” and “GTL. – www.beatmatch.info
One cool idea they have going is a podcast featuring work created using the sample packs. You can send them your finished songs and “if they like it” they will play it.
Head over and check them out for yourself: http://www.beatmatch.info/
Good luck Waldek and crew and keep the site fresh with new downloads often!
Here’s another reason why there’s no exuse to use cracks. This free multi effect unit is from Korean manufacturer Luxonix. They make the Ravity software rompler. Luxonix is the effect section ripped out of Ravity and given to us for free. I did some research and Luxonix was released in 2004 but I thought it was worth mentioning because up until last night I never heard of it. So maybe you hadn’t either? My friend had it on his laptop and of course it peaked my interest.
Its available for Mac and it’s Universal Binary. It’s available for PC and also runs on Vista. It looks and sounds like commercial software. When it was released in 2004 it won KVR‘s “Free Plug-in Effect of the Year”.
I like the interface a lot. It reminds me of some old hardware and it’s a simple layout. Three slots load up three effects. Three parameters for each effect are tweakable. You get 128 presets, 32bit processing and 24 effect algorithms:
– S’Filter 12 / S’Filter 24 / 3-band EQ
– Peak Compressor / RMS Compressor
– Overdrive / Distortion / Amp Distortion
– Crusher / LP Noise / Stereo Image
– Chorus / Flanger / Phaser / Auto Wah / Tremolo / Auto Pan
– Delay / Stereo Delay / Ping-pong Delay
– Gate Reverb / Room Reverb / Hall Reverb / Spring Reverb
