Posted on May 11, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on May 11, 2015

The HTML 5 Drum Machine is (as the name suggests) an online drum machine. With a range of different drum sounds (crashes, snares, kicks, etc.), drumkits (Hip Hop, Electro, Acoustic, Techno, House) and editable volumes and tones it is great for composing across a range of tempos and styles.  Beats can be exported as WAV files which can then be imported into Adobe Audition as drum tracks. It takes a little bit of playing around with to get the hang of it but it is well worth the small investment in time.

How To Use The Sandstorm Photoshop Action

Posted on Apr 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on May 3, 2015

A couple of days ago I came across Brad Goble’s Behance portfolio and was amazed at what he had done. The thing about using particles in Photoshop, at least for me, is the effects are not easy to create. That is until I discovered that Brad’s effect, known as Sandstorm, is a simple, easy to use Photoshop action that is available for $4.00 over at the Envato Marke
