We’re excited to announce the arrival of MIDI start points and filtered batch downloads, two new features that expand your ability to get that sound you’re looking for.
In this blog post, let’s take a look at how you can get started with each.
1. MIDI start points
Exploring MIDI files is a great way to discover a tangible musical idea that’s also totally adjustable in terms of its pitches, rhythms, and timbre. We’ve made it easier than ever before for you to locate packs that contain MIDI files on Splice Sounds – all you have to do is click on the new MIDI tab on the left-hand navigation bar to get started:
This will direct you to a page where you can view a curated collection of packs, categorized by whether they contain MIDI basslines, chord progressions, or melodies. You can click on any pack to be brought to its page, where you can preview and download the MIDI files using your Splice Sounds credits. Note that the MIDI files won’t download to your Splice desktop app – rather, they’ll download via your web browser.
2. Filtered batch downloads
Another subtle but heavily requested feature we’ve brought to Splice Sounds is the ability to downloaded samples in a pack within a filtered result.
In other words, you can now use tags and search terms to filter the sounds that you want within a pack, and then download all of them in one easy click with the “DOWNLOAD ALL” button. This can be a huge timesaver if you’re looking to download all of the female vocals in a pack, every sound that includes the term “retro” in its filename, etc.
