Beatport just announced its Production Starter Kit, a free bundle of sounds and samples, video tutorials, and PDF how-tos for budding DJ/producers. It also comes with a 30% discount off of your next purchase at Beatport Sounds, which is the company’s online store for loops and samples.
If you’re taking our Music Production For DJs course (the best way to get started as a DJ/producer, if I do say so myself!) or you’re about to get started on it, this is a good supplementary resource – you can explore the samples that come with it later on as you go through the latter half of the course, plus the discount voucher for Beatport Sounds is a sweet deal (the Music Production For DJs course itself comes with packs from Beatport Sounds, so we can vouch for the quality).
• The Production Starter Kit from Beatport is available as a free download. Grab it from the BitTorrent Bundle site.
