Nick Batt host of Sonic Talk asked me to be a guest on his weekly videocast. I had a lot of fun with Nick chatting it up about library music production. I hope you enjoy this episode and find it inspiring and helpful.

New AudioCopy Loop Packs
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Retronyms have a cool app called AudioCopy. With Audio Copy you can share audio files between different audio apps. AudioCopy also has a wicked content store. This is the ONLY universal content store in the iOS world and by “universal” I mean you can purchase and download sounds to use in Retronyms apps but it’s not limited to JUST Retryonyms apps. You can import the sounds into a lot of different music production apps. Packs that say “Hook Enhanced” contain useful metadata to help time stretching and pitch shifting within the Hook app.

I’m very proud to be a part of the Retronyms content production team. They released four of my Hook enhanced packs to date. They are Downtempo Lounge, Clubstep, Deep EDM, and Dark Trap. Check out the interview http://blog.retronyms.com/2017/04/artist-spotlight-dj-puzzle.html

Links require an iOS device to open:
