Farewell Tumblr, It’s Been A Blast
In late January we moved the Envato Marketplace blogs here to Tumblr, and it has been a blast. A crazy 4,006 posts later over seven tumblogs, we’ve come to appreciate Tumblr’s speed and flexibility, its informal atmosphere, its variety of post types, its integration with other social media sites, and its bookmarklet that allows you to create Tumblr content from just about anywhere.
Many of you have found a home at Tumblr too, with 1,252 of you creating your own tumblogs and following us. If you’d like to give your new home a fresh coat of paint, you’ll want to check out ThemeForest’s Tumblr Themes section and pick out something that appeals.
But it’s time for us to move on. A new unified blog called Envato Notes will be launched in the next day or so. The new blog will support marketplace authors, sharing tips and giving advice that will help you market yourself more effectively. It will also be a central place for the community to get together and keep up with the latest Envato news.
See you around!

“Playlist clips in FL Studio can be sliced up and rearranged, which is an easy way to add fills and syncopated variations to drums. Once we have some variations, we can merge the clip slices and then clean it up a bit in the piano roll.”
“In the first part of Guitar Amp Simulators 101, we looked at the fundamentals of choosing, setting up and getting started with an amplifier plugin. In this second part, we’re going to get our hands dirty and really get to grips with how to get the best out of our software amps.
“As before, and largely for the sake of practicality, I’m working primarily in Guitar Rig, but many of the techniques we’ll look at can be applied to whatever software you’re using. Feel free to share your own software specific tips and tricks in the comments!”
“Welcome back to Part 3 of our mini-series in ‘Seven Steps To Writing Memorable Melodies’. If you missed the previous parts, then I do urge you to pop over and read those first, as there is a natural progression of the steps as we build on information learned from each previous stage. You can read Part 1 here, and Part 2 here.”
