“In my career I have found myself more often than not being called
upon to compose for ethnic-inspired films and media and as such was always
searching for a way to demonstrate a vision to a director of what I heard in my
head. It had always been such a struggle to do that since those sounds
came from no synthesizer I had in my arsenal. Enter Q Up Arts. The first
time I happened upon the amazing “Native America” series it was a revelation.
Not only were the samples absolutely pristine and the performances
impeccable, but the organization was completely user-friendly even for someone
as tech-challenged as myself. I have purchased Voices Of Native America,
Voices Of Istanbul, Voices Of The Aztecs and Latin Groove Factory and have had
tremendous use of all of them. They are featured in my work in countless
films and television productions. The best compliment I can give…..and
something that is essential to every working composer…….they inspire.
Thank you, thank you to Doug Morton and his team. Much gratitude
for your singular contribution to the world of sampling.”
