I’ve been exactly where you are. In fact I’ve been there a few times in the last 18 months and there’s a thread or two here that I started that’s very similar to yours.
I will say this: If you love making music, what really is your alternative? You gonna quit writing music? Is there something else you could be doing that would pay so much more than you’re making here? My guess is no. I can say that because if there were you would have gone a long time ago. The reality is, this is a great outlet for your creativity and music. I understand that making commercial music may not be as creative as we all would like, but we are making music nonetheless and that’s what we love!
I also said I was leaving many times. In fact I went non-exclusive for a while, quickly found out the grass was not greener on the other side, (6 months) and came right back to focus my efforts in one place.
Let’s be honest here. You would still be making music no matter what right? So why not make a few dollars and do what you love doing? That’s how I look at it. I do get frustrated about sales (or lack of) like you and everyone else does. But, if we all had something else that was so much more amazing and profitable that we could be doing, we’d be doing it.
This is a good place. Not to mention the incredible musical education one can get here by listening to the people. There are some very accomplished and knowledgable people here that have shared a lot with me and my music has definitely improved because of their willingness to help me. That is worth a whole lot of sales!
Keep the faith, do it because you love it, and remember…....you’re always one great track from being featured and having more sales than you’d previously imagined possible. None of that can happen if you quit.
I looked also and don’t see a way to independently resize them.
Let me clarify and see if I can perhaps get an answer.
I submitted a track. The track had two versions. One with lyrics, and an instrumental. The version with the lyrics, (the best one) was stripped out because it’s in Spanish while the less inviting instrumental was approved.
What can I do now with the version that was rejected because of its Spanish lyrics? Can I submit it?
So, a few months ago I had a track rejected because it has Spanish lyrics. Now it’s ok to submit it?
Hey your setup is already amazing, think twice before upgrade
Yeah no doubt! Appreciate it bro! What I like the most is being able to mix on the go! Nothing worse than being stuck in the studio! It kills my creative juices! I like being able to head to the store and buy some of that “creative juice” while I work on hits!
Here’s my current setup.
I’m hoping to make enough sales to upgrade this year!
Well done! Great pace!
