What can help from my experience:
- getting your music “out there” on several platforms (Soundcloud, Facebook band page, Newgrounds, Bandcamp…etc).
- use the “groups” feature.
- offer some freebies for both producers and future clients (from synth patches, some short instrument loops, Kontakt libraries to some tracks).
- getting to know several fandoms and styles from inside and build a fan base.
- pretty page ! everybody loves a pretty page.
- join the AJ Facebook group for a more focused feedback on specific tracks. https://www.facebook.com/groups/418099404912567/
Sorry, but I need music which will fit perfectly my video as well as existing one.. I need a track created from zero, a custom track..
Well, a custom track might actually cost you, but really, after watching your video (very nice one, congrats), the music didn’t really strike me as a “fit perfectly”, a nice track but didn’t follow the timing of the video, didn’t have some sound effects following the writing, really nothing so glued to the visuals.
I would say, try to find in the effects category some “wish-woosh” for the texts and some metal-electronics track on the right length and make a new presentation of the video.
This way you’ll make 2 audio guys happy and you’ll have both of them promoting your video on FB, Tweeter, G+ or whatever…
My best seller is a jazz/detective/noir sort of track. The next best seller is a metal/heavy rock track.
I guess that motivational sells good but it might be better to find a niche and have very iconic, easy recognizable style/feel.
Thanks guys for the shares
Here are two more Kontakt instruments, but on the “Hephaestus Sounds” website you’ll find great sounding Kontakt freebies released in the past couple of months.
Female Solo, a free female vocal sample collection based on audio recordings of Federica, a 19 years old mezzosoprano.
Next one might come in handy for orchestral purposes. An oboe library featuring sustain, grace notes, staccato, trills switchable from Modulation wheel.
On my wishlist.
Actually the track is not that bad and the elements are not just “thrown at random”.
The brass sounds way too orchestral to fit in a jazz or house context, but give a “bondish” feel. The saxophone sound like loops and phrases out of context and in some places the rhythm is too fast to fit the general feel, but the problem maybe was licensing of the sax loops, not quality issues.
