Selling Your Music Samples Online ???

Postby musicworld1 » Tue Oct 30, 2012 3:29 pm

Hi

Does anyone know if it's possible to sell short samples of your own music online? Meaning i do a lot of composition work on Solo Piano, Orchestral and Electronic work, and a lot of the time have many unused samples left over ranging from 30 sec to 1 min. Basically these are drafts that i didn't use in the main composition but still feel they are worthy for other composers to use who are just starting out. Instead of permanently deleting these samples could i pass them on to other musicians online for a small fee ?


Thanks.

There are lots of places to sell samples !
Depends how organized you want to be - but just clip by clip ?
Soundsnap ? Pond5 ? Sound Dogs ? etc

Are the sound sources unique / original ?

ie recorded actual piano / orchestra .. analogue / generative synths ?
