Note: I'm updating this soundset so it's currently offline.
On December 17th, 2010 I released the Sounds from a Distant Outpost FREE Live Pack. Now, a little over a month later there have been over 1,000 downloads! Update on 6/13/2011: Just about to hit 2,000 downloads :^).
The most exciting thing for me is that a two people have REALLY dug into the 12 instruments in the Live Pack and have taken the time to compose tracks using ONLY instruments from this pack.
I’ve attached their two songs plus a third I created below. It’s pretty fantastic that while we didn’t directly collaborate all the works are quite different yet sound they all sound like they are telling stories from the same universe.
I think it would be pretty cool to create an album or score a film with multiple composers sharing the same custom yet limited instrument palette like this.

This is a track I created to kick off the idea of everyone composing from this live pack.
Thanks James and Jason for your wonderful contributions.
