A couple of weeks ago I messaged Industrial strength records in hope that they might be interested in releasing my sample pack. I received an instant response from the owner Lenny Dee who was interested from what he had heard on my soundcloud.
Because Sample phonics rejected my last submission I wanted to keep this quiet incase the same happened with Industrial strength. Also, I decided to rethink about the overall sounds in the pack.
I decided to make a fresh start with a lot of the Bass, music and drum loops. I wanted to create a product that excites any bass music producer and makes them want the sound design that is in the pack and I learnt from my last sample submission that I may have rushed sending the samples from getting over excited about working with a professional sample company. For the last few weeks I have been researching tutorials online to improve my processing skills, mainly on the synthesiser Serum, which has dramatically improved my synth design. I have also been putting together demo loops with the samples that I have made to showcase them all working together.
Here are the demo’s that I have created with my sounds so far…
I sent these demo’s to Lenny Dee a few days ago and I had a Skype meeting with him last night all the way from New York!
I am really happy to say that he was extremely pleased with how the samples sound and would like to release them through Industrial strength records. He spoke to me about the benefits I will get from releasing my pack through Industrial strength, which will include online and offline promotion. It will be featured on Loopmasters website, Computer Magazine and marketed using his 15 years experience in the sample industry!
My next steps are:
- Organising the samples into folders
- Creating a few more Drum Breaks
- Finish serum Presets
- Include more Bass One Shots
