Rather than do the usual HISSandaROAR Xmas present (i.e. some free sounds) I thought I’d make it a little more interesting this year, so this is a present with potentially an additional reward!
Basically I’ve extracted some rhythmic loops from some of the industrial recording I’ve been doing, along with scaffolding hits I came across: they are yours to do what you like with… But, if you make something interesting with them, email a link to xmas@HISSandaROAR.com & I’ll select a few – the best ten IMHO – and those people will receive a copy of the full library for free when its released early in 2015!
When I first started to mess with sound back in the steam age, one of the first digital gadgets I owned & noodled with extensively was a Yamaha SPX900 with two foot controllers. With it I could process, sample & loop sounds, and I spent many happy hours jamming with it… So this little competition harks back to that idea… But there aren’t any restrictions on what you do with these sounds – recycle them into an amen break if you really want to! Having fun is the main aim, and maybe its an excuse to have a play in the studio or on your laptop or iPad once the Xmas hangover has worn off…

Happy Holidays and thanks for supporting HISSandaROAR over the last 12 months!
Next year is a special year for me personally, and some serious planning & hard work has been occurring behind the scenes… 2015 is going to be the best yet!
