  • I'm looking royalty free Indian music

    I need some music for a scene in my feature film, like the Ravi Shankar music of the 60s. Are there any public domain pieces out there? Thanks for the help.

    Wow! Why?

    You have Jam Pac World Music. Quick run down (there could only be more)... These are all Indian instruments... 66 Sitar loops, Bhangra Drum 8, Bhangra Flute 8, Bhangra Santoor 7, Chant Subahar 18, Curry Ganjira 6, Dandiya Drum 10, Dholak Drum 40, Khol Drum 10, Mridangam Drum 19, Pakawaj Drum 18, Raga Drums 6, Raga Oboe 1 (one?) *, Raga Tabla 10, Rajah Bansuri 4, Rajah Sarod 30, Rajah Tabla 37 and I skipped some AND I have a lot more which look like they may have come with GB. I had over 600 matches in my search but am pointing to what you should have.

    Just because I started messing with these, I tested myself a little and put together something in STP... about a 2 minute song, done in less than 20... sounds pretty good. I might be a bit more adept at this than some but really, I promise you, it is so simple and it's right there on your Mac. In fact it was so much fun I think I'll keep going!

    * Hmm, I've also got two Indian Oboe instruments in Logic... maybe I should write some loops.

      Wow! Where is all this stuff?

      Thanks for the help! I went to GarageBand but I can't find the Indian instruments. There are no Jam Packs. Do I have to buy these?

      I've never used GarageBand, but I know how to use STP. Can I access these Indian instruments from STP?

      In STP 1 there is one sitar sound and there is no dronning instrument sounds. There are the various drum beats, that's not a problem.

      I need the dronning instrument. I don't know what it's called off the top of my head. It's the instrument Anoushka Shankar played with her father Ravi Shankar in all those marvelous ragas

      Well, tell me where can I find these instrument sounds and how much do they cost. I already have iLife also, so if there are sounds there, please tell me. I don't have the program installed yet -- too much to learn; I'm in the middle of finishing my movie Felliniesque Players.

      Thanks for your help.

        OK, my bad. The jam pack collection comes with Logic Studio. I had it in my head that World Music came with STP2. Nevertheless it is reasonably priced with a boat load of loops. All of the Jam Packs work with STP and Logic--they are loops and software instruments.

        http://www.apple.com/ilife/garageband/jampacks/

        Something to consider... The four jam packs, World Music, Symphony Orchestra, Rhythm Section and Remix Tools, all come with Logic Studio. Bought separately, that's $400. Logic Studio is $499.

        There is a more recent jam pack, Voices. I'd like to hear some samples... Apple, you there? On the earlier packages they provided some hefty samplers if you had a Dot Mac account but they have yet to do so with voices. In fact, Apple hasn't really added anything significant in this regard for Dot Mac users in a few years.

        EDIT: Oh, Anoushka Shankar plays sitar just like dear old dad.

          For the love of Anoushka :-)

          I asked Anoushka for one of the pieces but she referred me to her agent

          Would you consider doing a little ditty on your virtual sitar for my movie? I'll give you credit

          If you're agreeable I'll send you the scene...

                    You can try http://www.freemusicpublicdomain.com/ it's an easy to navigate website. I'm not sure if they have any Indian music, but they do have a lot of instrumentals and stuff similar to Enya, Dead Can Dance and some Newage stuff.
