Re: Virus TI owners: TA soundbank is DONE
|Originally posted by cryophonik |
I started creating a soundbank for my Virus TI a while ago, but as usual, got distracted by some shiny object or something and didn't get very far. I was considering revisiting the idea, but then I thought that maybe some of the other TI owners around here might be interested in creating a tranceaddict bank.
Here's the general idea. I'm thinking that we each create a handful of sounds in different categories (e.g., lead, bass, pad, arp, FX, etc.) and use some sort of artist name abbreviation in the patch name (e.g., cryo Buzzkill bass, EricJ shhhArp [yeah, I just made those names up]). We could bounce the ideas off each other and use each other as beta testers. Once complete, we'd make it available on the Access website with the other free banks. Maybe even put together a demo track or two. I'm guessing that we could pull it together rather quickly if enough people got involved. For compatibility reasons, it would have to be limited to Virus TI/TI2 and Snow owners.
Don't do this!! (not to sound like an ass)
But I would NOT make it available on the access website why are you trying to do all this work to help market THEIR site?
I honestly think you have a good idea, but I think it can be monetized and promoted in a much more beneficial way.
What I honestly would LOVE to do is make a content based website to represent all the best producers on trance addict.
I would like to monetize the website in 3 different ways, sample packs, content locked tutorials, and project files.
There are a lot of really good project files all over the internet, and I will be scraping all the best to put on one site. Only the best project files ever made and for various different sequencers like FL Studio, Albeton, Logic etc.
We should have ONE website that belongs to all of us. I will create the site and market it myself all over the net. Would target both newbie music producers and veteran music producers.
It would have ONLY the highest quality content on it and nothing less.
Anyone who submits work to the site, will profit off of THEIR WORK ONLY. The best part about doing something like this is EVERYONE on this forum would be somewhat invested in it. Meaning we would have a small army of people sharing the site with their friends.
It could be a community project but no music would be sold on it, only content to help producers make better music. No links to vengeance sample packs or anything like that, only exclusive, hard to find tutorials/samples made personally by members of this site.
We could even turn it into a membership site where people have to pay $9.99 a month just to access the content.
Would anyone be interested in doing anything like this? I know an awful lot about how to market on the interwebz and get lots of exposure, so I would design everything myself. Then the community could help with submitting content. Only thing is the content would have to be ace level stuff. No crappy rehashed/overused samples, no tutorials that show you how to sidechain unless it is unique or new in some way. I'd like to keep it cutting edge, all fresh/high quality content. Only the best put together by the best of this forum.
If you submit one tutorial, even if we didn't make it a membership site, the author would get paid $1 for every 1 view. If you get 1000 views, you make $1000 dollars, its really that simple.
I can make a seperate thread if anyone is interested?
