I reached nr. 3 on the top new authors list within the first month, and although I saw a significant increase in followers, I did not see any sustainable increase in sales from being on that list
Another tip : don’t always trust your ears! Make sure to compare your mix with a commercial mix that you like now and then, so that you have a “true” reference point. This will help you a lot in the beginning.
Also, without a pair of well balanced monitors, you’re not gonna make it. You can’t fix what you can’t hear don’t rely on headphones!
Yes, eq’ing is important, but getting the right sound or recording in the first place, is even more important. Cmpression should be used wisely and there’s so much to it, so don’t get caught up in it just yet.
And my last advise – if you have a good mix, you have a good master – focus on your mixes for now, that’s 90% of it
Definitely feeling the holidays here, very slow month this far

Hadn’t noticed there were such a thing as extended licensing here, very nice!
