Thanks for the list! There at about 20 or more I've never seen before! I'll be harvesting sounds from this list for months!

 

What do you use to manage your samples? I am using AudioFinder, which is working pretty good for me so far.

hello to everybody,

 

I found a place called Solidbeat.com

 

You can find here Audio samples of trance, house, hardtrance and all the styles. It is like a huge Music Producing Resource. You can find here Audio Samples, Synth Patches, Vanguard, Nexus, Albino, Waves, Midi Files, Waves Presets.

 

Besides there is a House Competition right now. I hope you are gonna like it!

ok, going to drop in a note for Sample Of The Day too. I usually try to have fresh content every day. sometimes i get a couple days behind, but we started in April so we've got 100+ samples to share there. loads of bass. loads of kicks. We discovered issues with using .mp3 samples early on so all of ours are in .wav.

 

Great job

Thanks :)

A great site for inspiration is YouTube! You can record phrases from talks taken from:

- TED conferences on scientific topics

- Old sci-fi movies from the 70's (or later!)

- Philosophical/mystical discussions by Indians such as Brahma Kumaris (topics such as telepathy, meditation, telekinesis, etc.)

Seconded! Documentaries in general are a great source. Sometimes they have a little background music, but that can also be used to your advantage!

 

One thing I found useful is this little tool: http://www.bfxr.net/

It's a sound generator, designed to make retro-ish sounds for video games. However, it has many cool options that make it very powerful. I use it to create laser effects and rhytmic elements / percussion. There's a standalone (offline) version, too. It has WAV export, so it's compatible to all and everything. ;)
