Digital Sheet Music: The Peanut Butter to the Drum Kit Jelly
For full disclosure, this following is a sponsored post.
The music industry has dramatically changed over the last 10 years making it much easier for anyone with an MPC to download their favorite artist’s official drum kit/sample pack, upload it into their favorite software, and start creating music. On one hand, some can rightfully complain that a large amount of producers these days don’t have a clue about real music and are relying heavily on the ability to sample songs and utilize kits to achieve the sound they want. On the other hand, if you are a musician, you honestly have a greater advantage, being that you can physically play music in addition to using the newest music tech. If you are a producer and want to remix a song, instead of spending hours cutting up songs and piecing them together, you can hunt down and download similar sounding kits from a site like www.freesamplepacks.net and grab the digital sheet music of the song from a site like MusicNotes to create something truly original.
Established in 1998, MusicNotes.com has been keeping sheet music very much alive for the past 18 years. Over that time they have amassed a library of over 300,000 pieces of officially licensed digital sheet music and guitar tablature, and are currently servicing over 4.5 million musicians, artists, and producers around the globe. “I am a Steinway and Sons artist, have sold millions of recordings and had over 30 White House performances. Requests were made at a White House party for some Stevie Wonder tunes so I immediately pulled out my iPad, summoned Musicnotes.com and bought sheet music for “Overjoyed” and “Ribbon in the Sky”.” says David Osborne, Pianist to the US Presidents.
DJs, Rappers, and other artists are always creating contests for up and coming producers and artists to remix or reimagine their music. Sometimes they even offer submission contests for producers and artists to submit beats or instrumentals for them to work with. This is your chance to set yourself apart from the rest and present something truly original.
MusicNotes makes it easy for you to search the site for a specific song you are looking for, but in case you aren’t sure about the name, MusicNotes has a popular music section which features all trending available music and is a great starting point for all producers searching for sheet music. MusicNotes.com stays current by constantly adding sheet music for the most popular songs like music from Grammy Award winning artists Kanye West, John Legend, and Justin Bieber. Evolve as an artist and start creating your own clean samples by using sheet music to play and record each instrument, pushing your music to the next level.
