I like Logic Pro but would wait to see which direction the wind blows with Apple. It appears that they are leaving the pro market space. They have dumbed down and ruined their flagship editing software Final Cut Pro and they discontinued Shake (which was the software used for many of the effects in Lord Of The Rings). I would be afraid of them deciding Logic was to “difficult” for the average user and rewrite it as garage band pro – they have a history of doing this with pro apps.
This is a question for anyone that has had the free file of the month. Did doing that increase your sales on other files? Just curious.
It might be nice for the purchaser to have the option of allowing the author know who they are or remain anonymous.
Hey all, I have a question about referrals. Are any of you making decent money from them? If you are are you willing to share what kind of revenue they generate? I will go first, I have been here around two years and not had one referral, I have never put any effort into it.
I guess I am curious if anyone has had success with referrals and if it is worth the time putting effort into getting them or if I am better off writing more music.
I work as a video editor and downloaded the app, looked at it and saw it was missing SO MANY PRO FEATURES that I called and got a refund. I am really sad about the product, not so much that the product is awful for pro users but that Apple is basically telling pro users to bug off – all we care about are semipro and hobbyist.
I guess it is time to look at premier and avid since it looks like they want to develop and support pro users.
It is a sad day considering that many of the most “hard-core” apple users I know feel absolutely betrayed.
Hello All, I am looking for a plugin or way to password protect sections of a wordpress website. I have three different types of user for the website that need to be able to be protected by different passwords.
I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.
If volume was all that mattered they could lower the prices and raise the volume but at some point volume does not make up for price. I truly believe they could raise their prices 20%-30% and not see a drop in sales. They might even see a bump in sales. Sometimes when something is priced too low shoppers look elsewhere because it appears too good to be true.
This is a little off topic as well, but I would like to see the percentage for non-exclusive authors raised a bit as well. The low sale price and low % combined are tough.
+ (if not more)
This idea leads to a dark road. In essence, almost a pyramid scheme were those already at the top stand to reap more than those on the bottom just by having more sales. This kind of system is already in place. Pricing needs to be structured regardless of sales.
In fact, let authors decide prices above and beyond the base price set by the editors with a cap. say, nor more than $15 above the base price. Believe me, the market will decide that Sh*t and people will either keep prices high or, lower them to remain competitive.I mean, no offense tim but your suggestion seems to only really benefit the top tier authors such as yourself who seem to be doing this full time. Those of us that don’t shouldn’t be penalized for that.
I disagree with you on two points, I am not sure how a pyramid scheme is already in place..
Also I am not sure why I hear complaints against the top tier authors – it they are doing this full time and are putting out great work they should be rewarded. We were all new authors here at one time or another and it does take a while to grow your business here – just like any other business.
