Remember the value of custom content. There are so many ways of finding sound for your projects these days – but in my mind (and I might be slightly biased), there’s nothing better than using custom-created sound. It gives you material that’s created to exactly match your requirements and fit with your project and vision. It also gives you a unique brand asset that you can use going forward.
Hammered Acoustic Guitar (HAG) is a NI Kontakt-based sample library and the result of “playing” an Ibanez AE acoustic guitar with drum sticks and brushes. In order to make it sound punchy and powerful, Audiowiesel used two steel strings and tuned them to same pitch. This way it was achieved to maintain a slight modulation of the sound, a beat frequency.
If you like to produce sample packs, music, sounds or whatever, you need to know, that market is super competitive these days. Also it’s not easy to enter the good shops and make the connections, BUT you NEED to try and never give up if get rejected once.
