    I sent a reply Art. It was short (a paragraph or so) and no profanity. Of course, I didn’t save it before hitting submit. Maybe it’s still sitting in the ether and you can post it back up. Thanks.

    That same thing happens to me from time to time here. I never use private browsing windows. Different browsers though. Usually firefox or safari.

    Believe it or not, it shows up on SOME browsers, and not others. On one of my browsers, I cannot see the “PERSONAL MESSAGE (PM)” unless I log out, then click on it, then log back in. So weird. On other browsers it works as it should. My guess is you have one of the problem browsers. Try another one.

    Art, with shorter submissions, I have not found it to be a problem with Mac/Safari. I’m not sure why “some” longer posts make it, while others don’t, but it seems that’s a constant factor in things when they go south for me.

    Also, sorry for any thread pollution I may have created. I have not found these types of problems anywhere else on-line. Cheers. LAwriter.

    If you have a 500 series rack (and even if you don’t, and are willing to get one) one of the best bang for the buck preamps out there right now is the louderthanliftoff Chroma.

    https://store.louderthanliftoff.com

    Both API and Neve style preamps in one space, with a colour slot for compressors, EQ’s and other tone coloring options, HF/LF EQ and you can use it on your mix bus as well as when you record. I got a couple of em.

    in reply to: Submitting to more than one non-exclusive Libary #29403

    It sounds like you’re mixing up two completely different topics. Unless I’m not understanding.

    I wasn’t able to find info on guidelines to submitting same tracks to more than one exclusive library.

    Feel free to submit to more than one “exclusive”. But when accepted, you must NOT put your music in any other exclusives, non-exclusives or private placements. When it’s in an exclusive library, it’s IN – and they are the only place it can be licensed from. I would not suggest putting it in a bunch of “on-line” submission exclusives because there’s a chance that more than one might accept your music simultaneously. And that would really complicate your life as you would have to contact all the “losers” which would not make them happy.

    But with traditional style libraries, sure, send it to more than one simultaneously. All that said, perhaps I’m old school – if I’m doing an exclusive project (which is rarer and rarer these days), I’ll target a library, contact them about direction, and write for them exclusively. If they take it, great, if not, I’ll move on to the next library and send it there are wait for a decision before moving on. I absolutely DO NOT do exclusive “on-line” style libraries where I don’t have human contact, and where the submission itself it tacit approval of their terms and conditions.

    I am a newbie with Pond 5 with 20 tracks and wanted to submit same tracks to Audio Jungle and others as a non-exclusive deal.

    Great. No problems there.

    To my knowledge, it’s pretty common to do this. I’ve heard some people “re-titling” the music for each site is that true? Would it more uncommon to keep the titles the same and upload them with same price? What are some advice you would give and are there any risks by uploading with same title to a different library?

    As Art mentioned, your only danger is competing against yourself. If you think that will happen, a pseudonym and retitled song names will help prevent that. No risks other than competing against yourself if you cannot control the pricing.

    If you can afford it, IMO, nothing beats the Sterling Modular offerings unless you custom build something. Even then, it would be tough to make something better/cheaper. My finish work carpenter was even blown away by the design.

    They are customizable, an ergonomic masterpiece, and sonically angled to avoid standing waves and reflections in what is arguably the most important piece of hardware (sonically) in your studio. One of the reasons they are found in so many mastering facilities.

    I don’t like their “silver” / modern stock design. For a few hundred more, I did mine in african rosewood, and it’s spectacular….

    Too little, too late. IMO of course.

    Yeah, myself as well. I’m an A+, B or C- level writer depending on the day you catch me, ad who I’m working for. 🙂

    I appreciate the fact that it takes some money to do this, but as it sits – even with the reasonable price – it seems that it’s just another pay to play scheme. And with that, I’m not interested. Thanks for the opportunity though….
