- Mutant v3 by Crypton Future Media (Windows)
This Japanese freeware, by the developers behind Hatsune Miku, helps you organize your sound effects, loops, and samples in a database. Add folders, then play and tag your files right from the browser. The program shows waveforms and editable musical/sample data such as key, BPM, filetype, genre, instrument, etc. I use it to keep track of all the junk I download from Freesound and various free sfx packs. Mutant has been hosted at sonicwire.com/mutant for years, but a 2017 redesign seems to have knocked it off the internet, and it looks like some missing js prevents downloads from the Wayback Machine archives too. Since Mutant has been a boon to me as a musician/audio editor, I’m posting the copy on my harddrive for you to download until the official one comes back.
- The Dinosaur Piggy Bank Theme
If there were ever a TV show about my dorky bachelor friend Will and his sentient flesh-eating stegosaurus piggy bank, this would be the theme song for it. I tried to get Will to sing his own verse but no such luck.
I get requests for stems strangely often which I usually can’t complete because I am a file-purging monster. I actually had to have someone send Nimbasa Core to me to upload to Soundcloud because I had deleted it from my computer. Multiple times. Sometimes I do have things lying around though, so they’re compiled into scraps you can use for your remixes here! Bear witness to my terrible mastering skills!
