Tackling Fear in the Creative Industry
Halloween is right around the corner and that means it's time to get scary! It's also a good time to talk about fear and how it affects us in our work.

As an artist, insecurity and second guessing your creative decisions or even talent comes with the territory.

Private Drummer: “Drums From the Big Room: The Mixes” from Sony Creative Software
by N. Halpern“Drums From the Big Room: The Mixes,” is a finely produced two-disc drum loop library from Sony Creative Software, performed by Steve Ferrone, a venerable session drummer (Duran Duran, Alan Parsons, Bee Gees), and member of Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers since the early 1990s. This collection is a pared-down version of the 2005 release “Drums From the Big Room,” (also still available), which provided many of these same performances, but in full multi-track versions in which, along with the “full mix” of each loop, comes separate WAV files of hi hat, kick, snare, rooms, overheads, etc. A few instances of multi-track performances are included as “bonus loops” in this collection.

"What It is! '70s Analog Funk" Loop and Sample Collection from Sony Creative Software
reviewed by Chris Sanchez Great 70s sounds, and not just for Funk! I’ve been writing music for television shows and commercials since 1999, and in this line of work it’s invaluable to have a strong library of royalty-free loops and samples at your disposal. I’ve purchased dozens of such products over the years, and two of my all-time favorites are “Mick Fleetwood: Total Drumming” and “Drums From The Big Room: The Mixes,” both of which are published by Sony Creative Software (SCS). In terms of sonics, performances, and ergonomics, these two products have proven themselves time-and-time-again across a wide variety of genres and moods. They are also a great value. Those of you who follow my blog Preservation Sound know that I have a fondness for the sounds and studio techniques of earlier days, and when I saw that SCS had a new collection called ‘What it is! 70s Analog Funk’ I was excited to dig in.
