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...
This is great and very encouraging. Congratulations Tom!!!
By the way; What is your day job and how you manage to make time to produce music?

Great work! I've heard what you did with the Mozart, I know that you definitely have the ears on right!

...and it's very encouraging to know what you're working with, as I face similar HW and SW constraints.

Thanks, Alan - much appreciated!

I have to admit, I could spend some money on software, but then, it is such a rabbit hole the pluginitis, or how someone from downunder called it the other day. Where do you stop? It seemed easier not to start first place. :mrgreen:

Of course. I imagine the constraints can come from business models, budgets, or (gasp!) sheer force of will. For myself, I can't bring myself to ditch a system that works simply to enable the temptation of throwing money into the hole...for now at least ;)
