(Anyway Gareth, as a side note, don’t think I didn’t just notice your new badge! ;) Did I miss an announcement? You’ve messed up my Elite count now! Anyway huge congrats from me on that sir! )

It’s been there for a month. Alas, no-one created a thread at the time. I guess that’s what happens when you become a reviewer! :p We are the enemy now! Also, still a couple more badges I need to obtain. Gotta catch ‘em all…

Regarding construction kits, I know we do our best, and the team has a pretty vast knowledge of many construction kits , but we can’t possibly know all of them. Adrien (senior reviewer) may chime in on this thread as he can give a word ‘from the top’ on this issue.

Unfortunately, it’s actually not looking so slim these days (in the EDM category especially). Just in the last year or so, I’ve seen a host of many new sample libraries popping up with aggressive marketing, offering very affordable royalty free sample packs and construction kits (lego style), promising to sound exactly like all the big names in the industry.

And 6 new ones from a VERY high profile company/sample developer in the last 12 hours…..

Thanks for the suggestions.

I think Impact Designer looks really interesting. Most of what I see, however, is stuff where you are just getting another sound designer’s sound. I guess I’m looking more for programs where you can take your own recorded samples, or a combination of synthesizers and effects, and make your own custom sounds. Basically, I want to create what those sound designers are selling in your links. I’m not sure if it’s okay to take what they have made, then make my own sound effects and sell them as individual sound effects. Or am I wrong? Certainly you can use them in your music, but is it okay to make custom sound effects from another person’s custom sounds and sell them as your own?

I really appreciate the posts, thanks!

Camel Audio Alchemy allows you to import your own sounds. It is an amazingly powerful synth.

I don’t understand why every brass library doesn’t doesn’t record the horns individually

Take a look at this.

But what if somebody is looking for something out of ordinary, for example if they need an elaborate solo? Not all music here is bought to be used in 15sec commercials, I suppose there are customers who look for something that may pass as a proper song or piece of music. But it is good to have a better view of what it is you want and what not. Thank you for this article, it will make some things easier.

You can always add a variation in your ZIP file, e.g. ’’AwesomeMusic – Main Version” and then “AwesomeMusic – Main Version With Elaborate Incredible Virtuosic Solo” :D

Often it’s case of – just record the track as you like it, and then go through it and if there’s anything that really stands out and diminishes the use for background music, use the ‘mute’ button. That’s your alternate mix :)

Interesting seeing this topic brought back to life. I was not a reviewer back when I wrote all of that!.

Anyhow, Josh uploaded tracks long after he made the announcement (his most recent approved track is from February of this year), so I’m sure he still comes back and checks the place out from time to time.He may also be offering his own music in his portfolio here – for free elsewhere as a non-exclusive author.

If he is still around on the forums, I suspect many here would be interested to see the results of his decision.
