The idea here is that we collectively create an open source sample library, and make these samples available to the world to access and use. If things go well, we’ll make this a series. I’m envisioning a Team Supreme-style project creating sound design/sample libraries if this takes off. Perhaps I’ll include a composition element to it as well, so we can share music using the samples we create…
