  • in reply to: Edits from MIDI session? #32590

    Personally, I always do alts and edits while everything is still midi so where to slice up .wav files isn’t an issue for me. I also don’t mix down then apply my master fx as a separate operation. Everything is done while everything is midi including alts and edits. By time the composing is done, so is the mixing and mastering “for the most part” because I do it as I go and I find that it actually helps with my composing ideas because I’m inspired by almost hearing the finished product as I go. When I export the stereo file, it’s done and that’s it. It’s just how I work and I feel like I’m able to get more music done that way. I don’t recommend it or not recommend it, it’s just how I do it and it just seems to work for me.

    ok, I got a reply from a library that has sent out a similar request so generally – x amount for the right song. If the composer wants to create it there is no guarantee.(Not sure what the last part means).

    Thanks Wes_B. I just emailed a library that sent out a call like that and asked how that works “generally” speaking. I’ll relay what he says.

    Thanks Michael and Beatslinger for the response. That’s kind of how I took it but wanted more feedback.

    Hey Art. I’d say kinda of an ebb and flow. I seem to have settled within a range. Feels like a stock that won’t break out and like you said, a couple more pages without any real noticeable pay increase. Seems the added pages are just enough to maintain the status quo.

    I use Reference as well. It really makes a difference. I live in a condo so I do much more headphones headphone mixing than I do through speakers.

    Maybe I’m wrong but that sounds like semi exclusive to me.

    Kind of strange. Out of nowhere these last 3 months or so,I’ve gotten about 7 Harry Fox notices of intent to distribute music of mine via Spotify. Don’t know what sparked it. What I’ve heard is it takes a whole lot of streams for it to even amount to a little bit of money so I’ve just been shoving the notices in the drawer figuring if I see any money great but not holding my breath for sure. Maybe they’ll be a nice surprise one day.

    I forgot to mention that I got a second notice on a different song and different music company.When I went to their site it was all in Chinese I believe. The translator was only able to translate enough to know it’s possibly a new music site which lists clients it has. Couldn’t find the actual song because of the language barrier.

    What I found was interesting. I found the “artist” from my HF notice on the website with the title of my song indicated in the notice BUT but actual music was different. Somethings mixed up there.

    That’s ok. Spotify never crossed my mind until I got this notice that an artist wanted included a song I wrote. Other than that, I shoved the notice in my drawer and on with my day. If I happen to get a few bucks great.If not, there was no effort on my part so it doesn’t really matter.
