Free Samples(Amazing sounds!)
So often we talk about plug ins and apps. I personally feel their is a deficit in the discussion of the sounds used in production.
I noticed a thread the other day with free sounds.
I commented about what companies I use that I buy samples from when not creating my own. (more on that later)
If and when I use an outside vendors sounds, the leader in my opinion is Mode Audio. By far the best drum samples I think are available.
In fact multiple programs and even apps use their sounds and you may not even know it!
Above is a link I realized existed enabling a person to get a load of amazing sounds for free.
I do warn you, a free pack like this led me to end up being a huge customer for MODE AUDIO! LOL
As for others samples versus my own. I am working on a potential YT channel and that is a topic. I think it is vital to other source samples. Even though I am a preset and sample designer, it is human nature to gravitate to your own comfort zone. I feel that as long as you have quality samples, using some one else's like MODE Audio enables a producer to find a new sound or approach.
