To celebrate the forthcoming launch of my new sample library "Grant Nelson - Studio Essentials Volume 4" I'm gonna give some of you that may not have grabbed the others the chance to get them for a silly price.
They retail for $59.95 each on Traxsource and £34.95 each from our online shop Wyzestore.
But.. Until Saturday 28th Jan at 6pm (UK) you can buy all 3 libraries for £50, or any of them for £20 each directly from me.
This offer will not be available on any download stores, you will be dealing directly with me.
Simply send me a message here on Facebook if you are interested and I'll give you the details and then send you the files directly.
Once again, this offer is NOT AVAILABLE ANYWHERE ELSE, only here on Facebook. Message me for info ;)

Just recently you’ve started releasing stuff again on Nice ‘N’ Ripe, which has been dormant for six years. What are you planning for the label?

The plan for Nice ‘N’ Ripe is to try and bring back some of those old vibes.
Maybe this is a bit anal but I’m only using synths and sounds that were available to me back in the mid ’90s when I produce new stuff now.

There are really only two differences:
Firstly, back then everything was sequenced on an Atari 1040ST with Cubase and recorded to 1/4″ tape or DAT.
These days I’m using a Mac Pro with Logic and recording right inside the computer.

The second thing is the hardest part – I know too much!
I am trying to unlearn what I’ve learned over the past 17 years in terms of production sound, arrangement, programming and instrumentation.

This is pretty tough though as I used to write, arrange, mix and record an entire four track EP in a single one night studio session back in the day.

That isn’t the case anymore as I’m way too critical of anything I make these days which prevents me from “just going with it”.

Another bit or triva that will bore all but the studio heads


Back when I did these Jodeci remixes we didn't have the kind of audio HD recording in Cubase / Logic that you have now. As there were so many parts in this remix I bought an external HD recorder to multi track everything and sync it up. GOD bless the EMU Darwin ;)
