MsP Production Vault: TPS Module Brass VSTi

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Switching it up this week, we’re going away from drums and giving you guys a VSTi! =D

The first VSTi from the vault will be the TPS Module. This is a great sounding brass module with some presets that can get you going. If you’re a fan of Polow the Don’s producing, which has a fair share of brass, you should be able to use this VSTi with the quickness.

What’s great about this kit is not only the actual brass sound you get, but you also get different ways the brass is played. There are multiple crescendos (brass starts low in volume and gradually gets louder and fuller with different characteristics) both quick and extended, nice accentuated brass hits with quick release, and you can even choose from individual brass instruments (french horns, trumpets and trombones) or groupings (ensembles, quintets) in those stylings.

Head on out to our Production Vault and get the VSTi today!

MsP Beats Section Update: Never Mind What They Say

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Continuing on with our bi-weekly beat series, this week, we have a beat called “Never Mind What They Say.”

This beat is pretty open-ended, as you can use the vocal sample in different twists. You can love someone, and “never mind what they (others) say, never mind what they do), or you can do you, and “never mind what they say, never mind what they do,” etc. In the “hook” section, there’s a small vocal part that sounds like “About Me,” which can work for you.

It can work in different ways, and if you want the beat, we can also strip that part if requested. Otherwise, it’s pretty open-ended, and you can use your imagination and creativity.

For more information, including purchase/lease information, click here, or click here for more beats.

Make sure to sign up for the Mailing List to get updates on new beats plus updates to the Production Vault.

More to come soon!


Hitting the College Radio Circuit and Submitting Music, Part 1 – WNYU

Monday, October 25th, 2010

In an attempt to get my music out there to different listeners, I decided that I would try hitting up the college radio stations that might be willing to give me airplay.  After my first experience with Real Heat Radio, I figured that I would send my music out to different types of listeners to get a better idea of what audience would like my music.

The first I’ve hit (and I plan to document each time I hit one so artists can try to hit them up to), is my own alma mater, New York University.  WNYU is their radio station, 89.1FM in the city.  There are two ways to submit to them.  For traditional album releases, CD’s/CD-R’s and vinyl, you can postal mail them to:

WNYU Radio
5-11 University Place
New York, NY 10003
Attn: appropriate director, see below

  • For club & house music submissions:
  • Attn: Beats In Space
  • For hip-hop music submissions:

This information was taken from their website at

For MP3 submissions, you can e-mail Jacqueline Castel at or go to the (Make The) Product MySpace for more details.

I’ve submitted three songs in via MP3, and hopefully I can get some airplay!  I’ll keep you guys posted.

More coming soon!


MsP Production Vault: Urban Fire 3 Kit

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

Come get your drums! =D

Here’s another kit from the Urban Fire series, which is most of the same style as 4, but there are some extra things in here that make it unique. There’s a Middle Eastern folder with some ethnic perc sounds, amongst other things. The Machina-Ren folder is pretty interesting as well, as it’s a shoutout to the popular SR-16 Drum Machine by Alesis. The Lazy Claps folder also has some interesting clap sounds that may fit certain styles.

Head on out to our Production Vault and get your free drums today!
