Sample heads where are ya?.. You will love this one!
Can you believe they actually named this Get Lost Singer?..lol
I just tried it on two tracks and it works pretty well. With some eq and adjusting I think this is all I’ll need when filtering samples down to the bassline 🙂 woo hoo..this is crazy and free!!!
Wonderful morning to you! My work week is getting started today. I’ve been handling a few other business matters, and I’m excited to get back on the music.
I am also happy to write about the new goodies I am using. I can never have too many drumkits. I’ve come across many over the years, and have even made my own. As I advance to the engineering side of music, I know it’s all about frequencies! When I find the perfect kit which is has every wav sound eq’d, and sitting within the right frequency range, I am pleased.
I have posted about an engineer I heard about a couple years ago, Mike Chav. Mike has mixed, engineered,produced, tracked, and played guitar on many of my favorite projects. His list of credits is extensive. Here are a few projects he’s been involved in: Snoop Dogg – “Heartbreaker”
Mixing Stat Quo – “Penthouse Condo”
Producer w/ Boi-1da, Guitar Erykah Badu – “New Amerykah Pt 2: Return of the Ankh”
Executive Producer, Engineer, Tracking, Mixing Erykah Badu – “New Amerykah Pt 1:4th World War”
Executive Producer, Engineer, Tracking, Mixing Guilty Simpson – “Ode to the Ghetto”
Tracking, Mixing Dr. Dre – “Dyin Words” off of “Detox” + other untitled tracks
Engineer, Guitar/Bass Jay Electronica – “Act I: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge)”
Producer, Engineer Pharoahe Monche – “Revenge”, “Cops Comin”, “Evil Eyes”, “Desire”, “So Good”, “Body Baby”, “When The Gun Draws” off of “Desire”
Engineer, Mixing, Guitar, Programming Snoop Dogg – “Beat Up On Your Pads” off of “The Blue Carpet Treatment”
Engineer The Game – “Around The World (feat. Jamie Foxx” off of “The Doctors Advocate”
Engineer, Production, Additional Mixing
Wow! That’s past impressive. Recently Mike has branched into tutorials, and (drumroll please) DRUMKITS :). Talk about a break for thousands of producers like me/us. Kits straight from an industry engineer. This is no hand me down, third party, mp3 crap either. The kit’s include high quality, ready to go wav files, hand picked,and mixed by Mike with contributions from other industry producers.
This is the first post of an ongoing category. I am starting with “Drum Arsenal Vol. 1 :Swiss Army Kit”. Site description:
The Drum Arsenal Vol. 1 features 97 high quality wavs of exclusive samples created by Mike Chav, for MikeChav.com. This collection of sounds has been created with the approach of a producer and the technical skill of an engineer, using the highest quality analog and digital signal processing. Creativity and fidelity is paramount here. We do not follow the trends, we make them!
This package includes:
• Kicks and Booms
• Snares and Claps
• Hats, Shakers and Cymbals
• Toms, Percussion and FX
*(THESE SOUNDS ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT IS IN THE PROMO KIT!)
Start your songs and beats off right, replace drums in existing material – surpass the “industry standard”!!!
Here is a link to the FREE Promotional Kit to get you started: Mike Chav Welcome Back Promo Kit
Check out my tester to hear a few of the included drum sounds. I have left the percussion levels up so you can hear how crystal clear, and precisely eq’d they are. This is straight from Maschine no extra plug ins. (*piano sample not included in kit and used only for demonstration purposes*):

Although I made a quick hiphop beat,you can tell this kit could easily be a “go to kit” for various genres including rock,or pop. “Drum Arsenal Vol. 1 :Swiss Army Kit”
Happy Beat Making To All!`
Pz Til Later..
What’s up with ya? I haven’t heard from you all in a little while. What are you working on?..What new equipment did you get lately?.. Hit me up with some comments let me know whats good on your end…:)
My week is starting today. I went out with my cousins this weekend and had a blast! I also hit Street Legal Studios with female rap duo Golden Seal, who will be releasing HOT material this spring and summer. We have been working hard on quite a few big bangers!! I am excited to be close to sharing with all of you, new music that kept me too busy for regular posting…
I ran a few errand this morning. Whenever I don’t start working right away, I like to surf for goodies before I begin anything beat wise. I was looking for a few latin loops to chop and remembered that I had downloaded tons of samples from www.musicradar.com .
Jackpot! I’m going to go through some of them off my hard drive now. I am sure I’ll find something great to get me going today. There are tons of samples to download in the SampleRadar section. Hope you have a lot of disk space, if you are like me, you will want them all ..lol
There are a whopping 26,044 to download, all free….enjoy….
It’s Spring but today it is quite nippy outside. I’ve got plenty to do to keep me busy inside …mixing, POSTING :)…setting up a website, and later grooming the dogs…of course I’m still so very elated that Bluehost got it all squared away with the server issue.
I was looking for a few new drum kits yesterday. I am about to get back to work on my second one. I don’t want to put out “same ol’ same old” sounds, so I have to keep my ear to the streets to see whats out there already. I have learned so much since the last drumkit so you know the next is going to be awesome!!!
While searching I couldn’t believe I found a site with completely free drumkit downloads. There are no sign ups, no subscribing first, and no spam.. I already had some that are listed but I downloaded a few of them. I loaded them this morn and the sounds aren’t too bad. Some need a little tweaking, but I can’t complain about ’em..shucks they are FREE :)..enjoy and push freedrumkit.net facebook ‘like’ button..
What’s up with you? It’s Friday… yay! Who will go to the superbowl after this weekend? I am not as excited as I would have been if the RAVENS were playing..lol but can’t wait to watch the games….
Now that I am on my way to becoming a great engineer, I have really been trying out different effect plug ins. I have some that I bought, and plenty freebies from the net. I haven’t gotten into all of them, but I found a few on my pc that have helped me tweak and mix a lot better than before.
Kvr’s Developers Challenge 1st place winner Bootsie has some serious free plug ins!!
I have had his collection sitting on my hard drive forever. I decided to give them a try last week. So far I am so stuck on the NastyVCS vst. I have tried it on kicks, snares, percs., and most often the final mix. It’s a console strip type vst. Bootsie describes it as “..tools for tone and dynamic shaping purposes..”
Not only does it actually work and work well, I am loving the design! You can tell all of the vsts took a lot of time to develope. Most of them are multi functional. You can use them on single tracks, or entire mixes. Here are images of two more that I plan to use today: Read the rest of this entry »
Hey all I haven’t posted links to free stuff in a little minute..
A lot of you asked me to post Flp (Fl Studio project files) when I do tutorials. I use so many vst instruments that I rarely add FLP files. I was thinking they wouldn’t work the same as when I made the beat, if I didn’t include the vsti.
I found a site with a bunch of Flp files, drum sounds, soundfonts, and more:
Digging Digging.. any sample heads out there who just can’t get enough funky breaks? Well, Well, Well!.. I forgot all about the Phat Drum Loops Site. I recently updated my bookmarks and found some gems like these there:
