This may be a bit sad, but I've millions of drum samples. I'm currently in the process(once again) of sifting through another few thousand, of mostly retro/old-school high quality drum machine samples..
Because, this time, I'm doing it right for my own use..
in other words, making folder for the categorys,
would it ever be worth trying to make a few quid off, this side of the labour.
would it ever be a good idea?
(these were obviously gotten off the net)
I've all the new-school ones on my computer I use for production,
this time is a dump load of retro drum machines, I sorting through.
they're pretty tasty too(for old-school) and in a way, fresh and "exotic"
I dunno would there be much interested, but say- you do a demo track of some of these samples, randomly.
Stick it to soundcloud with a link, If someone likes what they're hearing,
get paid to paypal 15-20 bucks(once you say exactly how many samples etc)
..Each time someone, likes/sends the bobs, give a link of a file hoster, of an uploaded compresssed zip/rar
Is it worth it, I wonder, even if just a few people??
Thought about it years ago and forgot about it but its the organisation I'm putting into this one.
Pay for a few records maybe.. I know I'd be ripping whoever done the original work(of gathering etc), but these are unprocessed samples of hundreds of old machines
Realised, though wouldn't work on so many levels. Making me realise also, why vinyl is so sacred now. Compared to any digital format anyway. I'm curious to why or when all music will be available free at a click for download, not just some select few..
