If you don’t own it, no problem, head over to www.marcopolobeats.com or www.thedrumroker.com and cop it!

2) Make a beat using any sounds from “Pad Thai Vol 4.” Of course you can use your own loops, samples, whatever you want just make sure something from “Pad Thai Vol. 4” is used to construct the beat. I’d prefer it to be obvious but even a few sounds is fine.

3) Email 1 beat submission to padthaibeats@gmail.com (only 1 beat please.) * VERY IMPORTANT * Please make sure you include your Pad Thai Vol. 4 order # + all your contact info in the email. Only submit your beat via mp3 attached to the email or a soundcloud link pasted into your submission email. Please do not send any download links or large attachments.

PRIZES:

The winner receives the following:

1) Any drum & bass sounds from 2 of my released productions not included in “Pad Thai Vol. 4”. Just tell me the name of the songs and the drums & bass sounds are yours.

2) I will personally email/submit the winning beat to any rapper you want and let them know you got a banger (within reason of course…y’all know who I work with so please don’t ask for anything outlandish haha.) Past 3 winners have submitted beats directly to Pharoahe Monch, Masta Ace and Ed O.G

3) 1 free digital download of any album I’ve released.

4) 30 minutes with me in the studio via skype, phone or messenger (not in person, sorry Mischa don’t like guests). You can play me beats and get feedback or ask any production questions you want.. If you make hot shit I’m happy to help you get your beats to some MC’s. Rappers always need beats.

5) $150 store credit @ www.thedrumbroker.com . The Drum Broker is also offering up a NS-10M USB drive in addition to the generous store credit. $150 will get you a ton of HEAT from The Drum Broker.

Sound good?

Let the beat making begin and if you have any questions please ask them in the comments.

Good luck and most importantly have fun.

peace,

Gatekeeping your best distribution channel: Music Software Piracy

10 Dec

I ran across an interesting Reddit post today:

“I sometimes wonder if the reason Reason is getting less popular is because they piracy-protected it so well. I mean, FL is probably partially popular because 90% of its users can just torrent it. They’ve protected it so well that kids can’t download a recent version, therefore are not easily going to pick up on it, not create tutorials, not tell their friends etcetera. Not sure about this theory, just wondering. Wondering what you guys think.”

Why is this interesting? The Reddit poster poses an interesting theory where Propellerhead Software, the developer of Reason has stunted the proliferation of Reason as viable music production tool due to its Draconian licensing practices. This posture seems reasonable if you consider a few things. Not all software users are participating members of the profit driven licensing model. Many FREE tutorial and instructional videos available on YouTube are created by younger users without access to the funds or means to legally purchase (license) software and plugins. The best informational resources may be developed and distributed by these non-paying users.

The idea here is that the non paying, pirating users of Reason would make Propellerhead’s most effective street team and increase the software’s popularity and user base. Of course, this idea isn’t limited to just Propellerhead Software but extends to many types of developers and non-software distribution models (think about your own music). It’s a fact that many of us beatmakers and producers start out using pirated software and eventually purchase it at some point during our careers. This is becoming easier, more affordable, and enticing with subscription based software and plugin licensing.

What are your thoughts? Do you think piracy serves a greater marketing purpose? Are some developers too restrictive and draconian with their licensing?

Download Here: !llmind – Stranger Loops

“80’s synthesizers are some of the most textured and powerful instruments that still have a significant impact on modern music. When I first heard the music on Netflix’s hit show ‘Stranger Things’, I was inspired, excited & moved. So much so that I’ve created a set of original samples that draws from those textures. Moog bass, arps, thick synthesizers, lush pads, big chords and inspiring melodies that draw on many different emotions. I’m really proud of this set, and I’m so excited to share it with you guys. Whether it’s pop, trap, boom bap, electronic, EDM, house or any genre, this set of samples will instantly help to create your own personal masterpiece. It’s like having access to an amazing set of 70’s/80’s samples from vinyl, the only difference is, all of the audio stems are included!” – !llmind
