ES DGenR8 - Free Drum Machine

Free Drum Machine For Windows By Daniel Werner

ES DGenR8 is an open source, virtual analog drum machine in the style
of Roland's TR Series, in particular the Roland TR-909, with 11 voices
and controls that mimic the TR-909:
Bass Drum, Snare Drum, Low, Mid & High Toms, Rim Shot, Clap,
Open & Closed Hi Hats, Crash & Ride Cymbals.

All voices are completely synthesized using digital algorithms that model
the operation of analog circuitry within a drum machine so they sound
authentic and are easily tweaked using the controls.

This plugin is available as a native DarkPlug machine, included with
DarkWave Studio, and also as a VST plugin for third-party hosts.

DarkWave Studio:

WaveTab - Free VST

Wavetab has 2 oscillators that can be loaded as a wavetable.
Comes with its own Wave forms or load your own. 
You have to create a Textfile Wavetable in order to load your own WAV form.
Lots of movement in the GUI - The Name jumps around and the Oscillator display
is evident (but not helpful).  The controls work as you would expect.
A large number of presets are included, but are named as Program 1, Program 2, etc.

It all works pretty straight forward and allows you to make sounds not found elsewhere.

10 ways musicians make money without sacrificing creative freedom

ReverbNation Blog:

“10 ways musicians make money without sacrificing creative freedom”

Posted by Mariana on September 19, 2012

This guest post is written by Jo-Ná A. Williams, Esq., a former vocalist
and songwriter and a solo practitioner with her own firm in New York,
J.A. Williams Law – The Artist Empowerment Firm.

Due to collapsing album sales, piracy, and less money generated from digital downloads,
artists are now faced with the question, “How do I make money with
my music?” Well, if the sales aren’t cutting it and the only people at your
shows are your family and a few high-school classmates, how will you really
make a living with your art?

Show me the money!! How can musicians make money nowadays?

I’m sure you know licensing and live shows are great money generators for
musicians, but what are some less common ways that artists are making money
in the music industry today? I’ve spoken to musicians on this topic recently
and here are 10 ways that artists are making good money, maintaining their
creative freedom all while paying the rent:

1 - Hold live online shows

Create an online streaming concert and charge your fans and followers to watch your live
performance from the comfort of their home. Great way to increase your fan base and take
full advantage of technology. Try the site They allow you to perform a live
streaming concert for a portion of your ticket sales and they even allow fans to tip you while
 you’re performing!

2 - Become a partner with YouTube

Partnering with YouTube on your channel is a great way to generate revenue by allowing ads
and placements.

3 - Music for web-shows

The web-show movement is booming and many shows need songs for their introductions
or throughout their episodes and they can’t pay the hefty licensing fees for mainstream music.
This is also a way to expose your music to larger audience.
Start by contacting some of your favorite web-shows via sites like YouTube and Vimeo.
Ask them if they are looking for original music to add to upcoming episodes.
Be sure to include web-links in your correspondence so they can easily access
samples of your music.

4 - Compose for Off-Broadway shows

Theatre productions need great composers for their music. This is an awesome
revenue stream if you can snag a position on a new play — it’s less common but lucrative way
to make money. These gigs are generally through the web of networking.
I never recommend agents because they tend to only work with people that have BUZZ or through
their own networks. But If you can connect with OTHER artists via networking…
you’d be surprised how you can get a great gig. I know some musicians that have
contacted theatre companies in their area to see what new projects they are developing and
snagged jobs this way. If you don’t have a theatre in your area, tap into your web of artists.
Sometimes musicians know other performing artists that need help with their plays and productions.
Get creative!

5 - Become an affiliate

Many companies that you love have affiliate programs. If you promote their products or services to your email lists and people purchase as a result, these companies will give a percentage of the proceeds to you. Don’t you love getting unexpected checks in the mail?  An example of  a great company with affiliate programs is Ariel Publicity. Visit the site for details on how to become an affiliate.

Ariel Publicity :

6 - Start your own publishing company

Publishing your own music is great because if you enter into co-publishing agreements with larger
companies not only will you get your writer’s share of royalties, you’ll also get ½ of publishing royalties.
First step to starting your own company is to register the proper business entity within your state.
For example, a Limited Liability Company or Corporation. Next, register your songs as a publisher
with a performing rights society such as ASCAP, BMI, or SESAC.
These steps will put you in the driver’s seat as your own publisher. Get those royalties!

7 - Be a freelance sound engineer

As a musician you have a great ear for sound so put it to good use. Companies, events, and less-experienced performers need someone to oversee the sound in their productions.

8 - Pre-sell your upcoming album

Pre-selling your album gives you the money to produce a higher-quality product.
Not only is this a great way to get cash flowing to your new project, this is also a way to generate
excitement for your upcoming album with your fans!
Free marketing AND money, where do I sign up?

9 - Rent your studio

If you have home studio where you’re producing your own music, share the wealth!  Some artists need quality production of their music and they can’t afford the larger studios. This is a great way to help your fellow musicians and make money at the
same time.

10 - Build your email list

This is an age-old marketing tactic that you definitely want to incorporate into your life as an artist.
You don’t want to have your fan base only connected to your social media.
What if that method goes away? You’ve lost them and you have to start all over.
Always have someone to market your next product or concert to by building your list.
Add links to your music on iTunes or your new merch. Use ReverbNation’s mailing newsletters
option to give you a professional and fun way to connect with your fans.

As an independent artist, I know that you would prefer to have all your money come from the screaming
fans at your concerts or people clamoring to get your CD, but the reality is, you have to make ends meet until you finally reach your stride in your career. Take at least one of these ideas, apply it and then take
that revenue and re-invest it into your career. Careful planning and monetizing every aspect of your art is
the key to success in this industry. It’s time. Let’s do this!

SongTrix Gold

Songtrix is a powerful software platform for musical creativity, education and publishing.

It offers musicians an intuitive working environment that manages real musical
events and structures, such as chords, strums and drum rolls, as well as individual notes.

The applications of Songtrix are almost endless.  It is designed to support musical activity
in the same flexible way that a word processor supports writing, or a spreadsheet supports

Using styles, you can turn a simple chord sequence into a professional musical arrangement
in a matter of seconds, to make backing tracks for performance, improvisation practice or to
explore harmonic possibilities for composition.

You can progressively override and customize the style arrangement to get exactly
the sound you are looking for.

Or you can take full control of the creative process, using the rich palette of musical events
to produce your own original compositions or arrangements from scratch.  You can easily add
effects, such as pitch bend and vibrato, to make the performance sound stunningly realistic.

Staff notation is generated automatically, continuously and accurately as you
create your songs, helping you learn or improve your sight-reading skills,
and ensuring that you can effectively communicate your work to others.

A unique strength of Songtrix is the awareness of music theory that is built into
the workspace.  You can mark out key centres, and call on a variety of music theory tools to
interpret, inform and guide the creative process.

Whatever your background, the How Music Works tutorials are an invaluable musical reference. 
Included with Songtrix, they start with the basics of sound and progress through to the advanced
topics of songwriting and improvisation, providing sample sounds to clearly demonstrate each
point of music theory.

You can take your completed musical works to the world by publishing them on the integrated
ChordWizard Network. The ChordWizard Song file format features encryption, song protection and
an embedded link back to the publisher, making it much more secure than other formats such as
Midi files.

You can also use Songtrix to meet and collaborate with other members, making you
part of a global community of musicians, as your skills and creativity are unleashed to fully
realize your potential.


Music Theory (Tutorials)

These interactive Music Theory tutorials explain how music works,
in simple language that you can relate to.

Every topic contains a wealth of diagrams nd sounds to illustrate
the points being explained.
