I used to work for an advertising agency that made $40,000 a year by holding their vendor payments 90 days before paying them.
I have to concur with Gareth’s post. I live in Nashville which is a music center in the United States. There is a term used in Nashville called being “A Good Hang”. That basically means you are cool/fun to hang around with both in the studio and out. As with most of the music business – it’s all about relationships here as well.
Congrats! I love your work!
I think it is a great idea! +1
Thanks for the kind words and endorsement! I am really glad you were able to get the sound you wanted on your project. If you have the budget it is always nice to get someone else to master, even if you do everything else (produce and mix) on the project. When I produce albums I always try to use a different mastering engineer (even though I do mastering) because that last set of ears can really make the project sparkle and fix things you might have missed.
Let us know when the project is released. I really enjoy your work and would like to hear the completed project!
If you are going to be using pro-tools, look at picking up a digi002 rack and having the guys at blacklion do the signature series mod to the box. With the mod the digi002 sounds amazing!
- Advertising: I believe AudioJungle will be the next ThemeForest. Factually, audio is actually a larger market then website templates, however there simply hasn’t been a central marketplace or mechanism that really has had the power to attract and engage all of the potential buyers around the world.
No company has really emerged as a possible solution and front runner – until what is happening now with AJ. Respectively, there has not been the same type of focus on AJ as there is on TF as the revenue is not even close, which is understandable, however I believe now is the time to make some serious changes to get this great market place to become the #1 Royalty Free Music website in the world!Overall, the music is already here and continues to get better. The community is already here. The site is already beautiful and easily navigable. We already have the goods, we just need to let everyone know we’re here!!!.....so my last point is, please increase our advertising budget!!!
I agree with Tim, audio has huge potential.
One other point I would like to add is that I believe AJ could use a price increase. The pricing is so low I have had clients purchase tracks from sites that cost more because they didn’t believe the tracks and license’s were legit from AJ due to the low cost.
2. Some sort of sliding scale for non-exclusive authors like the exclusive authors have, not as lofty, of course, but a little bit of a hike for reaching certain revenue amounts.
I thought version 3 was the best for what you are looking for. It retained the dynamic range, felt more open and had more air while also raising the overall dynamic level. Just for fun I messed with mastering the original – see what you think:https://www.yousendit.com/download/M0Rvek9wTlEzS3BFQlE9PQ
Can you upload the unmastered version as well? It is hard to comment without hearing the before and after.
