PulseSetter-Sounds and GDPR

 

Our vision of a dystopian future slowly fulfilling itself became more real with the GDPR (European privacy laws) . And with a jealous eye we see how our EU brothers are fighting what seems to be common sense; Do not let evil corporations use or sell our private information in a way we do not like. Humans are not products and we value our privacy.

We at PulseSetter-Sounds have been very clear on our privacy policy and use a common man lingo instead of legalese wording trying to hide something. While reading the GDPR rules we realized its just what we always thought should be common policy. We let people know about our newsletter and that we only use customers emails to send newsletters about upcoming products or important sale events which are easily unsubcribable. We do not hold on to any other info or any way to identify anyone besides their email. We do not hold any customer credit card or passwords. Nor we buy or sell customer lists or any other personal information. We use 3rd party payment processing systems from paypal and stripe so we do not see any credit card or financial info or anyway to use any info to do anything else. Our website is setup (SSL) with the intent to be secure and that we don’t have to deal with anyone’s personal info.

And we do it (and have being doing so since the beginning) for a simple reason; we also buy music related products for our own personal musical projects and we do not want our privacy to be compromised. So we applied that common sense philosophy to our web store.

And to be more transparent: that image is of Freddy and Gmo (owners) waiting in line to see the Conan o’brain show in Burbank CA. Freddy Composes for well known TV series and films and Gmo does music production and sound design who used to work for a MPAA facility dealing with FOX, Disney, Warner, Sony high end tv Shows/films and had to go through yearly FBI background checks for MPAA certification. So we are really not into buying or selling of data or medling into peoples affairs or private info. We only want to make sounds and sell them via this portal/webstore while there is downtime in our music jobs. While we understand that the GDPR rules are meant for big data companies that have a price on our info, we want to re-mention our privacy policy, what happens with your email info and a way for you to knows us better.

Still editing those darn Kontakt Libraries….

Just a quick update for the start of 2018. We are working on several kontakt libraries. Its always fun to “sound design” (used as a verb:) stuff but makig it spotless clean and perfect for consumer release is another level of detail that takes some time. Not to mention the scirpting, marketing and “life”.

Still with this “editing too much face” we couldnt be happier doing these libraries, soundsets and loops.

 

2018 is looking good!

We are huge fans of sci-fi and this classic film has to be one of the pinnacles of sci-fi standards.

A lot of our graphics are based on this dystopian future of movies based on this sci-fi classic.

In honor of this film and the new Blade Runner 2049 release, we are throwing a flash sale.

Our individual soundsets are $20.49.. (of course!)

Pulsor Soundset for Zebra2

Zebra2 is one of the most well known soft synth for media composers so therefore we HAD to make a soundset. We called it Pulsor.

We composers usually get a little frustrated with the current soundsets out there and even though we’d like to have more time to create our custom soundsets we sometimes need to buy them to speed up a project. The typical presets out there are painfully geared towards EDM and trap music… or for your average 70’s solo lead performer!

Therefore we created a patch that uses one of the things we use most… pulses. OR starting points to layer other elements on top and still get a cool sound underneath that orchestra. And speaking about layers, thats one step Pulsesetter-Sounds decided to take Pulsor. This composer oriented soundset has complex patches and also the sublayers for that same patch. We found that some of the libraries out there have really nice sounds but those were too complex for us to use in our own compositions. With Pulsor we wanted to leave flexibility for the composer to be able to layer the amount of complexity on each preset. Each layer of the patch could be used on its own, it still retains a lot of depth and modulation options to stand out and proud.

We are also very happy that top hollywood composers like Joseph Trapanese and Lucas Vidal liked them and loved their feedback.

Check out our video walkthrough and tutorials to see in action and please let us know your feedback. What you like liked and didn’t like. That way we keep making better patches.
