If you recognise the name “Ben Osterhouse” that’s likely because you’ve used one of his sample libraries.
For a while they were the best kept secret of the composer world, until someone let the cat out of the bag and they became a favourite for so many people.
I had to get Ben on the show to talk about his approach to creating libraries, and I was not disappointed! We dove deep into the many considerations when it comes to developing sample libraries.
So here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:
- How the pursuit of learning can lead you down all kinds of unknown paths
- Learning scripting by STARTING with ideas and THEN finding solutions
- How boring technical exercises can actually inspire creativity
You’ll hear all that, and much more, including the benefits of being a solo developer and whether or not composers should create sample libraries for financial gain.
