4th deal since March in the pipeline

Post by CTWF » Tue Jul 27, 2021 12:12 pm

Hey forum folks

I have hardly been posting recently since I am so busy at my job that there is no time to spare. It's all good, but I'm already missing the music. 8-)

Anyway, I just read that a well-known large German-British library has accepted a track I put together for a Sound Design listing recently (braams and such). Since I hardly have time ATM, this was possibly the track I spent the least amount of time on in the 3.5 years since I have started producing. Since they don't want to hear samples, it was very useful that I have never spent a single dime on music software and samples, and therefore know a little bit about how to create interesting sounds from, essentially, scratch. :)

Most likely, this is going to be my 4th deal (ever). My deals so far:
1. Pizzicato piece (exclusive).
2. Orchestral hybrid (non-exclusive).
3. PD Christmas song (with vocals; exclusive).
4. Sound Design (exclusive).

ZERO money spent on VIs, plugins, DAWs, or production companies/studios.
Yes, money spent on TAXI and top-notch head phones.
I treat this as a hobby. Make of it what you want. :mrgreen:

Tom

P.S.: This was not through a TAXI listing, but via a direct brief from the library. But how did I get into the library first place? By learning from this forum and hooking up with people on here. So...

Hey Peter

I just think it is not all about the money spent on the newest plugins. Or even any plugins. I think, with the right set of ears and if you're tuned into your genres, you might be able to achieve a lot with very little to no money. Now, I am not saying that I am that person, but if I can achieve what I have so far, what could someone achieve who really knows what they're doing? :)

If they really knew what they were doing they wouldn't follow your methodology.
