30 Days of Roc #4: Around the House

30 days of Roc, where we release 1 new instrument a day! You're on day 4! First time here? Check out what you've missed:

Day 3: The Kitchen Sink
Day 2: Body Sounds
Day 1: Human Beatbox

Chores can often become a tedious and unwanted task, but sometimes, the most creative sounds can come from the little activities you do around the house. For instance, the sound of a sweeping broom. Think about it. No really, think about it. It's calm, tranquil, and peaceful. I mean, some might even consider it to be the ultimate mood relaxer. (I joke, and am being serious at exactly the same time...)

Because of these often overlooked sounds, we've gone ahead and decided to put an instrument pack consisting of things "Around the House" for Roc, our awesome music creator. From door slams to stair creaks, there are 12 fresh and newfangled sounds to play with that'll turn any regular song a household favorite.

Once you've launched Roc, you can find the latest addition, Around the House, on the right hand side, inside the instruments toolbar. The great thing is that they're all licensed under creative commons attribution, and can be used commercially. This means that you can use any music you've created in Roc (even in a commercial project!) as long as you give Aviary credit.

Here's a quick demonstration of all the sounds from Around the House mashed up together, and notice, the broom sweep totally ties it all together : )

Launch Roc now to start crafting some tunes of your own, and in case you suddenly forgot how to use Roc (shame on you!), check out this refresher.

Hint for Day 5 release (coming Thursday): Quack, oink, woof, meow, moooo, rawr!
