Bedroom Producers Blog has posted a list of 100+ free online resources for music producers, including instruments, drum machines, DAWs, samples, and more.
Over the years, I’ve bookmarked hundreds of free online resources which can be incredibly useful if you’re away from your main music workstation. Things like online BPM counters, tuners, virtual instruments and web based music sequencers can be life savers when you’re making music or recording audio outside of your studio.
All of these free goodies are compiled here, in a huge list which is meant to be updated and improved with your help. I’ve also added some of my favorite tutorials, music theory guides and various other tools which can be helpful for music artists. Feel free to submit your own favorite freebies in the comments section below!

Bedroom Producers Blog has announced ESQ-1 Cassette, a free sample library by Neil Paddock, featuring a set of multi-sampled Ensoniq ESQ-1 instrument patches.
The sounds (originating from the ESQ-1 factory programs and sequence data cassette) were recorded and edited by Neil Paddock of How To Program Drums, who has also included a useful set of instrument patches for Native Instruments Kontakt and all SFZ compatible samplers. The library includes the individual WAV files as well, just in case you want to use a different sampler for these sounds.
ESQ-1 Cassette sample library will consist of two parts, featuring 22 patches in total. The first part of the library (available for free download on this page) contains the following eleven multi-sampled Ensoniq ESQ-1 patches.
ESQ-1 Cassette Part 1 is available to download from Bedroom Producers Blog. Neil Paddock is also offering a range of exclusive discount codes to BPB readers.

Bedroom Producers Blog has launched the BPB Christmas Giveaway 2014, a chance to win plug-ins and sound packs from 16 sponsors.
After a year full of giveaways on BPB, it’s time for the grand finale. One final giveaway of 2014 to rule them all! I am very happy to present BPB Christmas Giveaway 2014 with 35 amazing prizes for 35 lucky BPB readers!
I have to say that, although I really enjoy organizing giveaways for you guys and girls, I always feel a bit sour in the end because only a couple of entrants can win a prize and the others are left empty handed. That’s why I’ve decided to take things to the extreme this Christmas, organizing a giveaway with 35 winners. It will be a HUGE task to organize and manage, but hey… What should Santa say then?
The giveaway includes prizes from Image-Line, Sugar Bytes, u-he, Cableguys, and many more. The giveaway ends January 7th, 2015, 23:59 GMT.

Bedroom Producers Blog has announced the release of Toy Keyboard Bass Station, a free sample pack containing a set of multi-sampled bass instrument patches in WAV format and a set of instrument mappings for NI Kontakt 5.
All of the included sounds were created with the Yamaha PSS-390 toy keyboard and recorded through a compact tube preamp.
Yamaha PSS-390 is an unusual toy keyboard which features a rather cool FM synthesis engine with some unlocked parameters, making it possible to completely modify the factory sounds. There are 99 factory patches in total and every patch can be edited using the rudimentary and at the same time totally awesome synthesis engine.
I was planning to sample this one for a long time and a couple of days ago I finally got some inspiration to do it. Since programming such a simple FM synthesizer is tons of fun (and incredibly easy), I’ve spent quite some time trying to get the best possible bass sounds out it. I ended up with 16 custom presets and I’ve recorded them through a compact 12AX7 tube preamp, just to round them up a bit and add a bit saturation on top. I’ve also recorded the drum sounds, in case you want to have some toy keyboard DnB fun.
The pack contains 17 instrument patches and 135 audio samples in 24-bit WAV format. The instrument patches were created with NI Kontakt 5, although you can still use the individual WAV files if you don’t own Kontakt.
The pack is a free download at Bedroom Producers Blog.
