Here we go Steve. Pretty much the same story here in terms of overall growth over a 2 year period.

I agree that sometimes it can be pretty frustrating when we experience a ‘down’ month, especially right after an ‘up’ month. I remember thinking back in June 2013 “this is it!, I’m on a home run!” only to feel pretty deflated the following month.

But looking at the all time metrics over a longish period of time does indeed put things into perspective, and kind of drills the point home that we can’t always expect a solid upward trajectory. And I guess that philosophy can apply to any business.

@Ralf: Wow, small world indeed! I’ve actually been following his works for a couple of years now, and very familiar with his other commercial and filmic projects. You’re right, he’s definitely very unique and original in his approach, and personally I favour his sound over the more ‘bubblegum’ dubstep sound that seems to be the staple these days.

@Marb: That’s fair enough mate, if you don’t like the sonic qualities of it, regardless of the creativity put behind it, then I guess I’m flogging a dead horse. Maybe this is more up your street ;)

I hate dubstep in general. It’s bland and uninspiring and very very samey with no imagination. Not as exciting as drum and bass used to be. I find it extraordinary that so many musicians are obsessed with it.

I used to have very similar viewpoint, especially coming from the realms of dnb production back in the late 90s. But I’ve discovered there are indeed highly creative Dubstep producers out there that just don’t get the same limelight that the more mainstream Skrillexes of the world seem to get.

I highly recommend checking this guy below Marb. Despite being a promo for Ableton, I suspect you may find it quite eye opening, especially with your knowledge in sound design and sound effects. His name is Ben Lucas Boysen from Berlin and works under the name Hecq, producing Dubstep for the most part. He’s a very talented chappie, with a great deal of creativity and imagination.

Unfortunate Sunday. I hope this will change.
It’s the May Bank Holiday here in the UK right now, and most people are ‘out of office’, so that could explain the slowdown we’ve seen, especially over the weekend.

Also something to consider; Twitter and some other social networks account for 2 to 3 automatic clickthroughs when you post the referral link.

This is apparently anti spam measures and to verify that the posted link is being legitimately directed to a genuine site.

anyone got anything today?

Feels incredibly slow today on the sales front. Not just AJ, but elsewhere too.

Also, not to kick this month off with a downer, but in the RF music world there’s talk that May is historically considered the lowest selling month of the year, so will be interesting to see how things pan out for us all.

In fact, here’s a little snippet from a forum I lurk on, of a small survey conducted by just over 280 RF composers with their yearly findings. Obviously it’s only a small handful of composers, but interesting to see nonetheless.

“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.

Personally, I adore some of the stuff Troels and the guys have put together over at 8dio. I use Adagietto quite extensively these days on my corporate productions, as their whole tonality fits incredibly well.

Not being a purist orchestral composer, alongside being an avid supporter of smaller, less mainstream companies however, I’m mildly ignorant of the differences between these other major string libraries. To me, it feels always akin to comparing mineral waters.

Simply an outstanding achievement Loïc, and deservedly so. Your music is superb and I think it’s fair to say that most of us who’ve heard it are very impressed indeed! Keep at it mate!
