CREATIVE COVER TRACKS: Powerful, Creative Backing Tracks/Cover Versions Now Available To Download Via Payhip.

 



I'm In Heaven. Backing Track. 

Backing tracks are now available to purchase and download from my Payhip store. 

First up we have an updated version of 'I'm In Heaven', a surprise number one from 2004 featuring Holly James based on Michael Jackson's 'Human Nature'. 

Thick polysynths combine with pounding bass and snare to provide a powerful, danceable version that would be a great addition to any female singer's set. 

I don't really do 'carbon copies', but rather more creative, original versions, so you can use them as the basis for cover versions if you want to add them to your Spotify or other music feeds. 

It is easy and straightforward to release a cover version. It costs a little bit more, but it's pretty easy. There's more info at the Landr website. 

You'll find a demo below. This has a synth lead line you can follow follow for the vocals, the pure backing track version is identical but with the lead line removed, ready for your vocal performance!




I'm in the process of producing new ones, and transferring the back catalogue to the store.....so if you're vocalist, or guitarist/singer looking for great sounding, powerful backing tracks to add to your live set or cover versions for your music streaming channels, then check them out. It's a relatively small collection at the moment, but they are some of the best backing tracks around, so why not have a listen. There's demo versions of the tracks, so you might find you didn't realise you wanted to add them to your set. 

I also produce custom backing tracks, so if there's any programming and recording you need then please get in touch.

Thank for looking/listening, why not follow me at my Facebook Page for all the backing track and cover version news.

The Finger P-Bass sounds from the Studio Bass Guitar Collection are now available free to download as a collection of Reason NN-XT/Combinator Patches. 

The full collection features four additional sound groups with 16 patches in each group. So there are 80 patches in total. 

The four additional groups are:

Precision Power Pick
Articulate Fretless

The collection makes full use of Reason's effects processors, particularly the Softube Bass Amplifier. All the effects processors used are Reason's standard items, so the sounds can be used with Reason Intro and Reason Essentials.

Bass Guitar Soundfonts and Zampler Patches. Demo Track/Video Now Available.

Took a while to put this one together, but finally got there. Think I was waiting for inspiration more than anything.

But I found a couple of loops and built some tracks around them. 

I don't think quality bass sounds are that easy to come by without spending quite a bit of money. The Soft Finger P-Bass is available free of charge, whilst the rest of the collection can be had for the price of a drink.



 

So check out the demo, you'll can download 'Soft Finger P-Bass' via the link below.

VINTAGE DRUM MACHINE SAMPLES: Ghost Machine. Alesis HR16B

 


Free Alesis HR16B Samples, Resamples, and Kits. 


Alesis' pair of late eighties drum machines may not be the first products people think of when they hear the phrase 'vintage drum machine' but on hearing these sounds again I really think they stand the test of time.

The HR16B was broadly the same machine as the HR16 but with a set of updated samples. Characterised by a heavier, more electronic sound, these samples offer a range of tight, punchy kicks and snares, crisp hi-hats and cymbals and a small but potent selection of percussion sounds. 

This was quite fashionable at the time. Launch a new machine, which was much the same as the old machine, only with an alternative set of sounds. Kawai did something similar with their R-50/R-50e machines, which there are also Ghost Machine collections for via the links below. 





You'll also find a Ghost Machine sample/resample collection for the HR16 via the link below. 




Like all Ghost Machine collections, a set of resamples are included. This is where I take the original samples and beef them up with EQ, compression, envelope shaping, and sometimes even bit-crushing and distortion effects. I think these resamples are stars of this collection and sound really good. Big, fat punchy kick drums, tight snares and a few select others. Check them out, I think you'll really like them. They stand up with some of the best modern digital drum sounds around. I think.

Alesis HR16B Free Sample Library Download Link. 

Just download the entire folder to your hard drive and use your DAW browser or individual instrument 'load' functions to load and play the samples.

Piano Mechanics One: Prelude. Grand Piano Sounds for Reason. 

This collection of great sounding acoustic piano sounds for Reason NN-XT/Combinator are now available through a fully automated download process via Payhip. 

8 great ounding NN-XT/Combinator patches using only the standard Reason effects and processors which means they can be used on almost any version of Reason including Essentials and Intro. 

To give you a flavour, here's a few demo 'vignettes' via my Youtube channel. 




I haven't found anything around in the freeware world that sounds anything like as good, or any of the standard pianos that come with some of the major music production platforms. 

So for a few quid you get a really great sounding set of grand piano sounds suitable for a wide range of musical styles and genres. 

Piano Mechanics One: Prelude. Reason NN-XT/Combinator Patches Download Link.
