SAMPLING FOR BEGINNERS

zoolon-pic

A lot of people have asked exactly what the sample packs Zoolon Audio sells are all about.  For the uninitiated in musical composition the answer is, as defined pretty well on Wikipedia, “In music, sampling is the act of taking a portion, or sample, of one sound recording and reusing it as an instrument or element of a new recording.”

Basically, with Zoolon Audio I create the sounds other musicians, electronic musicians and sound artists, across virtually all genres can manipulate and work with. Being sold on a royalty free basis the purchaser doesn’t have to worry about any legal issues once he/she has downloaded my sample packs.

Having just updated the website, www.zoolonaudio.com it is now possible to listen and download, at no cost, a range of free ‘taster’ samples. There is even, under the tag ‘LEARN’ a beginner’s guide to sampling as well as an ‘ABOUT’ page telling how this project began just 3 months ago.  Also, there is the new ‘REWARD POINTS’ system giving loyal customers decent discounts.

Whether you’re professionally interested in sampling, or just curious, please feel free to take a look at the website. By the way, the picture above is of some of the items I used to create unusual, uniquely sourced Field Work samples. Here’s the FREE sounds for download offer.

  1. George, I believe you already know that I think you did a FANTASTIC job with the update to your website. All of your samples and bundles are great, for some reason I seem to be drawn to the Field Work Samples packs, especially Bundle 3. Now I feel like tapas, and watching some Flamenco Dancing. Congratulations on the new update! A Mary Murphy scream! ~ M & R

    • Who’s Mary Murphy? A professional screamer? Brilliant. That said you would be impressed with the stuff electronic musicians can do with samples. Mt Cosa Nostra stuff was done with samples. It’s a great art form that could never have existed until sound was captured. Mary Murphy? I feel a Google search coming on. Rexie the genius probably knows who she is.
