creativeLIVE unlocks music industry secrets with new audio channel

creativeLIVE

creativeLIVE has announced the addition of an audio channel to its online broadcast network.

Instead of scouring YouTube for homemade tutorials, you can now learn music production and business directly from leading DJs, producers, and managers. creativeLIVE, a live education platform, today announced the addition of an audio channel to their online broadcast network. creativeLIVE’s free workshops — on topics ranging from DAWs to networking — teach musicians the technical skills and industry knowledge needed to make a living in the music business. The audio program will launch with classes taught by Incubus manager Steve Rennie, metal guitarist/producer Eyal Levi and EDM DJ Big Chocolate.

Founded in 2010, creativeLIVE is transforming online learning by providing free, live access inside previously-closed doors. Venturing into music makes sense for a company whose CEO, Mika Salmi, is responsible for discovering and signing Nine Inch Nails. Of the audio channel launch, Salmi said, “Music is close to my heart and we have been chomping at the bit to launch an audio channel on creativeLIVE. Just like in photography and other channels, we will be bringing world class experts to teach real actionable skills. I personally can’t wait to update my DJ skills!”

Creativity is the new literacy — and creativeLIVE is where musicians, artists, and entrepreneurs find the skills they need to make their dreams of living the creative life a reality.

Upcoming creativeLIVE audio courses

  • Music Business 101: Networking with Steve Rennie
    The driving force behind Incubus’ blockbuster success, Steve Rennie, AKA RENMAN, will reveal how he went from booking shows in Hollywood to managing platinum-selling bands. Spoiler alert: Networking isn’t just for business bros. (Sept. 12)
  • Eyal Levi: Digital Drums with EZDrummer
    Billboard top 200 staple Eyal Levi (Whitechapel, August Burns Red, Devildriver, and Job for a Cowboy) will teach a one-day course on how to digitally create real-sounding drums in EZDrummer. (Sept. 25)
  • Big Chocolate: Producing EDM with Ableton Live
    DJ/producer Big Chocolate (Cameron Argon) started making music in his bedroom at the age of 16, and is now an internationally-renowned performer coming off his second Warped Tour. Big Chocolate will demonstrate how he gets his song ideas out of his head and into finished tracks using Ableton Live. (Sept. 30)

The free live workshops will be available to creativeLIVE members (registration is free).

Toontrack releases Indie Folk EZX & Indie Folk MIDI

Toontrack Indie Folk EZX

Toontrack has announced the release of the Indie Folk EZX EZdrummer expansion library, focusing on capturing the organic, warm, intimate and ambient sound characteristic of the indie folk genre.

The EZX, aptly titled the Indie Folk EZX, was recorded at the Avast! Recording Co. in Seattle, home to bands such as Fleet Foxes, The Shins and Band Of Horses. It comes with three complete vintage kits: a 1960s Gretsch Round Badge sampled with both sticks and mallets, a Ludwig from the 1950s as well as a Slingerland Rolling Bomber kit dating back to the 1940s. Also included are two tambourines, a hi-hat mounted tambourine jingle, an extra kick and snare as well as a 28″ floor tom.

Indie Folk EZX features

  • Three (3) complete kits.
  • Two EZXs in one! Each kit is available in two variations: a standard multi-mic mix and a classic four-mic mix.
  • Custom drums from the 1940s to the 1960s.
  • Default kit sampled with both drumsticks and mallets.
  • Recorded at Avast! Recording Co. in Seattle, WA.
  • Included MIDI performed by sampling drummer Stephen Belans.

The EZX is available to purchase for $89 USD / 69 EUR.

Toontrack has also launched the Indie Folk MIDI, a collection of grooves and fills.

Toontrack Indie Folk MIDI

With the Indie Folk MIDI pack, Stephen Belans delivers a wide and useful range of grooves and fills for songwriters that are looking to expand their horizon, go outside their comfort zone or rethink what role the drums can play in a composition.

“Sometimes just a simple heartbeat/backbeat feel is all that’s needed. Other times, the drums find their place at far ends of the spectrum. Some grooves stick to a smooth ebb and flow with a natural evolution of intensities while other ones use more dramatic transitions that don’t rely on traditional rock defaults”, says Stephen.

The Indie Folk MIDI pack cost $29 USD / 25 EUR.
