I was wondering what kind of online services you are using for getting your music heard.

Currently I host some of my music right here and at SoundCloud, but I have not actually promoted the SoundCloud page in any way.

So, what are you using? Let us know here.

In Bb 2.0

Some interesting things I found recently:

# in Bb 2.0 – a collaborative music/spoken word project

In Bb 2.0 is a collaborative music and spoken word project conceived by Darren Solomon from Science for Girls. On the “In Bb 2.0″ website you can play and mix a combination of videos which all work well together.

The videos can be played simultaneously — the soundtracks will work together, and the mix can be adjusted with the individual volume sliders.

You are encouraged to participate by submitting your video in which you sing or play an instrument in Bb major.

# Sound Design in Ableton Live – Jungle Bass – Nick Maxwell of of Nick's Tutorials uses the sounds of a flusing toilet and the interior of a car to create a Jungle/Drum'n'Bass type bass patch in Ableton Live.

mQEdit v1.14

# mQEdit Graphical Editor for microQ

mQEdit is graphical editor for the microQ written in Java. The website it was formerly available on has vanished, but the author Martin B. has kindly given permission to host it here instead.

mQEdit is an intuitive graphical java editor for the Waldorf Micro Q synthesizer. It includes interfaces for editing sound-patches including a randomizer, multi-patches, drum-patches, sound banks and global parameters. Patches can stored as either ‘midi’ files or ‘sysex’ files.

# The menacing sounds of my office

Kent Williams is offering some samples of him banging stuff in his office:

… with a sharpie, a bottle opener, and my knuckles. Including banging on the Presonus preamp that I was using at the time, a can of compressed air, etc.

# THRU YOU | Kutiman mixes YouTube

If there's one music video you are going to watch this year it should be one of Kutiman's. A-W-E-S-O-M-E!

This guy collected tons of clips from YouTube and remixed them into brand new songs. Mad skills.

Note: everybody and their mother is now trying to watch Kutiman’s amazing work, so if the site is offline you should really check back later!

# Reaktor Tutorials – Free Reaktor tutorials by Mats Claesson. From the basics of building a simple synth to more advanced topics like Granulation modules.

Benjamin Heckendorn Guitar Hero 4 hack

# Air pressure kick pedal for Guitar Hero 4

Benjamin J Heckendorn built an alternative to the GH4 drum kit’s kick pedal for a person who uses a wheelchair:

Basically this turns the kick pedal into an air pressure diaphragm. You can now “kick” the bass drums by blowing into a tube.

# In search of the click track

Paul Lamere uses the Echo Nest API to find out who is using a click track:

I’ve always been curious about which drummers use a click track and which don’t, so I thought it might be fun to try to build a click track detector using the Echo Nest remix SDK ( remix is a Python library that allows you to analyze and manipulate music). In my first attempt, I used remix to analyze a track and then I just printed out the duration of each beat in a song and used gnuplot to plot the data. The results weren’t so good – the plot was rather noisy. It turns out there’s quite a bit of variation from beat to beat. In my second attempt I averaged the beat durations over a short window, and the resulting plot was quite good.

Native Instruments Guitar Rig Hero

Native Instruments has announced the Guitar Rig Hero contest, a four-week worldwide video contest that challenges musicians to demonstrate their skills and creativity in combination with Guitar Rig 3.

Show off your skills and creativity in front of the YouTube community, and impress our jury of international guitar pros! The GUITAR RIG HERO contest allows you to compete for prizes worth over $10.000, including some top-of-the line Gibson guitars, a cutting-edge Quad Core-powered laptop, valuable NI vouchers and more.

To join the contest, capture a video of the most original and spectacular performance that you can do with GUITAR RIG 3. From the most insane guitar solo to the craziest sound experiments, no sonic or artistic limitations of any kind apply! If you don’t own GUITAR RIG 3, you can simply download the fully functional demo version and use it for the contest.

Once your video is ready, upload it to your own YouTube account – you can create one for free in just a few minutes – and post it as a video “response” to the title video in the Guitar Rig Hero channel.

Submissions will be accepted until September 30th, and the public voting will continue until October 14th.
