Selling music online
Maarten Bauer posted a topic in Advice and TechniquesHello, I am looking for an easy way to sell my music (especially sheet music) online, because many people ask for it. Do you know a website or library where I can present and sell my music? If so, please share the link in this topic. There is an advertisement on this forum of the library Tune Bud, but I don't know if this is for music only (sound) or also for sheet music (written). This website works with Paypal and since I didn't have an account yet, I decided to register me at Paypal, but it doesn't recognise my hometown (in Holland). Do you know how I can fix this? I am looking forward to your response! Maarten
Best Orchestral Sound Libraries
Giò posted a topic in Sound LibrariesHello guys, this is my first post here. My name is Giorgio and I'm from Italy. I'm a sound designer and a... young composer. I've taken a look at the forum and it seems really nice. I'm looking for a complete orchestral sound library (complete orchestra, chamber ensembles and solo interments) good for classical and film soundtrack music. So... these are my questions for you: 1st Which is, in your opinion, the best library? 2nd Which is the best quality/price ratio library? (possibly a quite cheap one) Obviously, they don't have to be complete bundles, but they can also be separate libraries (strings, woodwinds, etc.) that I can buy separately. Thanks in advance.
Music Candy Looking For Composers
Tim Chapman posted a topic in Collaborative WorksMusic Candy is a production music library based in the UK. We are again looking for new composers for the catalogue. We're especially looking for quirky music which could be Jazz, Funk, Pop....anything but with a unique, quirky edge. We've found that our albums that have an eccentric feel to it have a long shelf life and are very popular with clients. Please visit www.musiccandy.com - go to the contact page and send Tim links to your best work. Thanks, Music Candy
I have some weird priorities in my search for a sample library. I would really appreciate advice from people who know the offerings better than I do. - I don't want to make mockups of pieces. All I care about is hitting keys on my keyboard and hearing a high quality solo instrument sound come out of my computer with little latency. - My system resources (4GB RAM, 1.8 GHz Core i7, SSD) wouldn't handle anything too demanding, and I'm not planning to have a dedicated 2nd machine for this. - I don't need any special articulations (not even pizz). I can hear the effects and bowings I want; I just want a nice legato sound while I play around. - I only need western orchestral instruments (I do need wind doublings, at least down to alto fl, bass cl, english horn & contrabassoon). For percussion, I only need vibr, mar & glock. I was even thinking about just buying a good standalone grand piano instrument (so it would be as if I were just using an acoustic piano for composing -- not trying to have other instrument sounds at all). But I thought I'd ask here to see if there's some broader library I might like. Budget: I haven't done enough research yet to know what my budget needs to be. (I just heard about some prize money and could use all of it for this [1000 USD] if I had to.) I'm not interested in buying Sibelius 7 for its sounds (was suggested in another thread). Thank you for any thoughts!
Instrument Sound Clip Libraries
ac3charland posted a topic in Composers' HeadquartersHello all, I'm interested in internalizing the different tone colors and effects different instruments have (mutes, special bowing techniques, extended techniques, etc.). Does anyone know of an online database which has recorded samples of each instrument with different effects? For example, I'm looking for a site that could provide audio of a Horn in F playing muted (non-transposing), stopped, muted (transposing), and open. This would be as a substitute to someone who didn't have access to live players who could demonstrate these effects in person. Many thanks.
