I figured I would start sharing some of the stuff I read around the net, the stuff that I find interesting, along with the posts of new product reviews, tutorials, etc.
Yeah I love doing the reviews and tutorials, but I read a lot of stuff that’s related to this crazy life we call music….so I want to share that too!!
I don’t know how long many of you have been dealing with sample cds, but it’s pretty amazing when you think about how long the industry has been around.
I honestly can’t remember my first sample cd, I didn’t start making music until 2001 so…I wasn’t there in the starting days of the sample cd.
I “think” my first one was actually Smoker’s Delight eLab (now eQuipped) I think I may have gotten Platinum Essentials at the same time and Big Fish was my vendor of choice.
From then…I was hooked, I knew I could get access to riffs and licks from professional musicians without having a budget for studio time.
Anyway, David over at SoundsToSample is taking his own walk down the sample cd memory lane…and he no doubt goes deeper back than me.
Check out his article on his first sample cd ever purchased. He also talks about Zero-G and how they put out the first dance sample cd ever…by the way, Zero-G is still around and producing content today.
