Hi Paolo, thanks for your comment!
Sure I understand what you’re saying about the quality.
I’m not a newbie in making music, but however I had never the reason to consider myself as excellent. 🙂
I noticed that exclusive libraries often publish collections in particular styles/genres, thats why I came to this question. Thinking this way I just suppose that it would be more convenient for the library to get a bunch of tracks in one genre than very mixed stuff. But maybe it’s just my mistake.
I have a similar question about the genre of tracks.
I plan to create about 10 -12 tracks and offer them to the exclusive libraries.
My main genres – pop/soft-rock (indie, alternative, rocktronica, mostly with positive mood), rock (hard-heavy, modern) and acoustic (simple, happy or country-blues).
What do you think, would it be better to do this tracks in one particular genre or in different genres?
Just take a look at Pond 5’s MoM (Media of the Moment).
Believe me, almost everything from those tracks (no matter what quality it may be), being sold a lot. One of my tracks periodically gets there. And with $40 it’s still double priced in respect to many competitors! It hurts a bit :(.
I experimented on Productiontrax changing prices from 30 to 80 and back, I can’t tell I’ve noticed a difference in overall income. Same on P5, reducing prices from 40 to 30, gave me absolutely no sales increase.
I noticed one thing, if the sales go down they just go down and basta.
It doesn’t metter what kind of manipulation I do with the prices.
Sure it’s just my personal experience.
Since the start of this topic, subscription fee was changed to $99 for a year :).
Before I came to PT (version 6), I worked with Cakewalk, Cubase, Nuendo, Logic, Samplitude. I would probably stay on Logic cause I loved it, but I’m on Windows.
Since upgrade to PT 11, I’m absolutely happy with it! It’s much more stable and less CPU hungry in respect to PT10. Some projects that I can’t even play in PT 10, run with 40-50 % CPU in PT 11 on the same computer. You can try trial version before upgrade. Avid made some very unfriendly movements for the last year, but the last 12.3 update looks very promising and timesaving. I tried S1 and Reaper, but was disappointed with interface. Sure it’s very individual impression. I think, Logic can be good alternative to PT.
thanks for the info.
Sometimes Avast goes crazy.:(
Avast says – “the site is infected”.
Just bought it. 26.4 GB – about 8 hours of downloading for my internet speed…
I’m absolutely not orchestral guy, but sometimes I do simple christmas tracks or need some strings parts for pop-rock. The orchestral patches from Structure sounds too thin for me and most special orchestral libraries are too expensive. I find it’s a good deal, hope it will fit my needs.
My Tunesat (free) account shows me much more detections in compare to that I was paid from PRS. Some tracks Tunesat has detected I’ve never seen in PRS statements. Do somebody know if PRS will accept the Tunesat records?
Yes, sometimes it’s not easy to do the short versions because of the tempo and chord progressions. I don’t cut them from the full tracks, I do it in my DAW project. There you have more flexibility to edit the length of different parts of the track.
thanks for your advice!
Something tells me that my DMCA notices for the monsters like YT or iTunes will be like a mosquito bite to an elephant:).
