Royalty Free Christmas Music

Royalty Free Christmas Music Fantastical Sleigh Ride

My Royalty free Christmas music called Fantastical Sleigh Ride in Winter Wonderland is available for licensing in your media productions.

If you need to add some festive sparkle to you movie, app, game or media this is sure to hit the spot.

A festive track bringing all the excitement of the Christmas holidays. Imagine children being invited for a ride on Santa’s magical sleigh and you will picture the scene presented by this production.

This is a lively, full orchestra production, starting with sleigh bells and quickly building to sweeping strings, church choirs and bell accompaniments.

The tempo is set at 115 beats-per-minute and provides a quick enough, but not overly rushed feel.

Snow flakes fall from the sky, presents at the foot of the children’s beds waiting to be opened as soon as Christmas morning arrives. This is the atmosphere provided by this professional, high quality tune.

Camel Audio

Alchemy Player Demo – Fantastic Free VST Synth

The Alchemy Player from Camel Audio, could very well be one of the best kept secrets in the audio production world.

I frequent music forums and production websites frequently, but do not find much mention of this completely free, fantastic sounding VST Instrument.

Since it has a large download size, you may wish to first hear some audio demonstrations of what the Alchemy Player sounds like for yourself. So, I’ve taken the time out to create a demo of just a selection of the 200 top quality sounds that come with this free virtual instrument.

The sounds in my alchemy player demo appear in this order:

“Dawn To a Sunless Sea”, “Hoffa Goes Saw”, “House Pike”, “Low Red Moon”, “Sequenced Square”, “Rain Lakota”, “Battlestar”, “Breakdown Boom”

There is no additional processing applied to the audio demo. This is how the instrument sounds without any manipulation. I didn’t even take time to create any intricate programming or sequencing, most of the demo is produced by pressing a single key and letting the sounds run their course.

You’ll hear a varied selection of sounds in this demo. Ranging from ambient soundscapes to arpeggiated techno sequences, and a dance riser to top it all off.

There is a degree of control offered over sounds in the Alchemy player, using X/Y pad style controllers and the modulation wheel to vary the sounds. In this demo, I didn’t go to those measures, so even the small selection of sounds that you will hear can be further altered in real time to create additional variations.

To hear it for yourself, to help decide whether its worth the download (you will find that it certainly is), hit the play button below.

Here are sound samples of the alchemy player demo:

If you’re convinced and wish to download the instrument for yourself, completely for free, here is a link to Camel Audio’s website where you can find it:

best free piano vst

One of the best Piano VSTi’s I’ve ever used for (nearly) free!

There are a lot of piano sample libraries out there, costing several hundreds of pounds for multi-gigabyte libraries, some of which I already own.

Incredibly, the piano library I find myself calling up most in the Kontakt sample VST, is the “Soft Piano” instrument from Spitfire Labs.

In case you don’t know – Spitfire Audio produce some of the finest orchestral and natural instrument libraries available, usually priced at a premium for high quality instrumentation and audio perfection.

In addition to their regular retail offerings, they also offer some experimental sampled instruments via their Spitfire Laboratories label, which can be purchased for a minimum charity donation of £2.00 to UNICEF.

In amongst other great sounds, you will find their Soft Piano – which sounds incredible. It’s a dark, moody, spooky piano sound, which you can hear used in my Crafting Mines track here.

To download the instrument for yourself, check out their special laboratories offerings by visiting their store here:

Royalty Free Music like minecraft

Royalty Free Music like minecraft

Royalty Free Music like minecraft

This simple, relaxing piece is inspired by the background music to the Minecraft video game. If you are looking for Royalty Free Music like minecraft then your search is over. This is a very non-imposing, transient, instrumental production which adds to the atmosphere without taking center stage.

The track starts with a repeating soft piano emblem, and slowly builds with bells and light string instrumentation into an easy, transparent piece of music to add subtle atmosphere to any media production.

Inspiration from the composer C418 of the original minecraft soundtrack is used to recreate the serene, calm atmosphere of that special lego block world.

make a professional music website

How to quickly make a professional looking music website

Fellow musicians – forget Dreamweaver, fiddly Flash design or HTML coding. Before creating this website, I considered my options, and in the end decided on using WordPress to produce the website you are using right now. This guide shows you how to make a professional music website exactly like this one.

If you’re wondering – I’d estimate that it took around 3 hours to get the basic framework of the site going. Since then, all I’ve needed to do is create and publish the content on a regular basis, to keep my visitors coming back for more.

In all, it cost me about £30.00 maximum. That includes the domain name and web hosting. WordPress is free!

I found this great tutorial on youtube, which told me everything I needed to know to create this site as you see it now.

You too can easily make a professional music website just like mine to provide royalty free music or publish your music online.

Follow the 1 hour tutorial here, and you could be up and running too.
