reubenchng saidAh, ok, I understand. So yes, I guess Cubase then would also still be my first choice if I really needed those features.
Hey Basspartout, I tried Studio One and I like it a lot. However, I felt the software wasn’t for me with the lack of an integrated music score which would be handy when I decide to teach my students a thing or two. Also, the lack of a surround mix in Studio One. I don’t do much work in surround, but its something I can play with. But again, Studio One, fast, easy and really nice to work with, but lack a few essentials that I need.
Guess what, I just bought Cubase 7! I’m a full time Logic user but I decided to try something new while I also think using a software that runs on both the PC & Mac platform would be great for collaborations/work these days.So while waiting for the box to arrive, I was just wondering if anybody have Cubase tips for me. Especially for me, I’m so used to the Logic workflow. I’ll appreciate any comments and tips given!
My tip would be, dont open the box yet and give Presonus Studio One 2.5 a try first, but I guess it’s already too late for that
I was assisting at a post host last year-working on a fairly major spot. I helped source music with the engineer and I found something here on AJ that worked and he could NOT BELIEVE how cheap it was. Literally shocked. This is a guy who spent years in Chicago’s once thriving advertising music scene as a engineer, back when composers actually had a budget to have an engineer to mix for them. So, basically, any amount of money not spent licensing music here went towards the hourly rate of the post host for the music search ($500/hr). The even more ridiculous part is the author AND audiojungle are not able to earn PRO money for the spot.
This is exactly why it is critical that the AJ licenses become stair-stepped so that the price of licensing music for a national TV commercial is significantly (very significantly) higher than the price for licensing a track for a YouTube cat video.The royalty-free marketplace is maturing and these changes need to happen soon in order for this business model to better match the expectations of buyers and authors.
It’s a great idea, why is it so hard to implement this. The little youtube type guys don’t get hurt or scared off by higher pricing and the big companies that want to use stuff for TV broadcast type usage pay a higher price, which would still probably be a joke.Add a TV Broadcast license, so simple.
but guys, there’s more:
talked to a close friend of mine today who is a producer with a pretty big reputation and he said he knows several cases of agencies buying their music on AJ while charging their BIG clients BIG numbers and keeping the money themselves. In one recent case he said a client of his told him that he received a budget for the music only! of ,converted, $3300,- Dollars, bought a track on AJ and you can guess the rest. He could go on a nice holiday for the difference!
So keep that in mind next time you’re boasting about a big company using your music.
While I admit that such practice is hard to prevent and there obviously will always be black sheep who put ethics way behind a quick dollar, it is a) a matter of refining the licensing (which thank god is getting done step by step!) and b) also definitely a matter of reducing the huge price gap.
Audiojungle URGENTLY needs a price increase!
It is not fair any more to such a huge growing number of items and authors!!! I repeat: It is NOT FAIR. This is not complaining or whining, this is simple maths! Simple Maths!
When I started here the number of items on AJ was 30.000 and now one year later, it has tripled!
I dont believe that the growth rate of the whole Envato marketplace can make up / justify the unchanged prices on AJ.
So what is AJ without this huge number of authors uploading their great music day by day?!? While Envato for sure doesnt lose a single cent in this game, faithful authors do when the pricing doensnt reflect the evolution of the marketplace, right?!
So I say it again: A price increase is long overdue! Simple Maths!
Noise-n-Music saidHaha, so far from the truth. 44.1 / 16 bit was not more or less than a compromise made by the industy in the 1980s. Although mots of listeners/consumers (and sound engineers!!) got used to it, it’s ridiculous to say that it covers human perception.
This resolution completele covers potential of the human perception.
Wow, amazing, Tim, and well deserved! Big Congratulations! That green would nicely fit the colour of my avatar, maybe I should reconsider doing vocal tracks, haha
So the first thing that already really annoys me is that I cant access one of your profiles without a) signing in myself and, especially annoying b) getting hit with a full screen Justin Timberlake everytime.
Apart from that, it takes a lot to convince me to have a third (or fourth) useless social media site apart from FB, YT, Twitter and, the only a little bit useful in my opinion for us musicians, Soundcloud.
Ok, good to see that it’s taken care of
Hey guys, just discovered this and the links and items look VERY suspicoious, right? [link removed]
Edit: What the hell is going on there? And what Connection does he have to upload all that to YT in one night?? (Also sending email to support)
