Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

I suck at math, me, and use a calculator = $266,000+ a day. So by my estimation, at $8+ million per month that would mean 5000ish artists making poverty wages (if their only income is Bandcamp)...except we know there are way more artists than that...and most I’m sure sell next to nothing. I am inte...

$442.7 million/yr is "not very much"?
I’m not good at math but $8.6 million x per month seemed low for Bandcamp especially not strictly downloads. What I was saying.

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

:lol: So I made a fan site on Bandcamp because I ordered something (Roger Miller of Mission of Burma's band, Trinity) and didn't get the d/l link due to a PayPal glitch ... Anywhat, they sent a confirming email with this factoid innit: Fans like yourself buy $8.6 million worth of digital albums, vi...

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

(Googles) That fancy. Any reason this model in particular? I’m at an age where I never owned a legit Walkman (which actually doesn’t make me as young as you might think), or purchased new cassettes, I only had tape decks in the first two cars and briefly in the parents’ home stereo. simply put it's...

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

RE: the vinyl comeback What is the ratio of people that actually listen to their new vinyl on a regular basis vs just use the download code? I've never used a single download code from a vinyl purchase. Since losing my entire collection roughly a decade ago, I'm back up to 300ish titles. I typicall...

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

TBH there seems to be a few very specialized niche trade skills like this. Another one I think about, anyone using reel to reels...some day JRF will probably retire?

Re: Pro Tools -9173 errors

I dunno, but maybe you are expecting too much from a 2010 era system? I realize that was a high end CPU in 2010, but that is now 10 years old. I'm guessing the Pro Tools and plugins are more current (and unfortunately many times, more demanding than 10 years ago). while on the surface the CPU clock...

Re: Pro Tools -9173 errors

I got Reaper up and running...was a bit tricky. Had to go through my VST folders and clean out some old poop before it would launch. Reaper is a little alien to me so I didn't take the time make an "exact" copy of this session. I created a dummy session importing a bunch of the stems from this sessi...

Re: Pro Tools -9173 errors

Installed new video card today (Powercolor Sapphire RX570 ITX, if you care). Chose this one because it would be painless for Mac Pro installation...ie: no power adapters/relatively compact size and power consumption compared to the *monsters* out there...just used the basic 6 pin plug that the old c...

Re: Mastering To Or For Different Players Yikes Earbuds?

In addition to my monitors (duh), i check my headphones, my iPhone speaker, and my bone stock not very impressive car stereo over Bluetooth (because that seems to affect the quality maybe too). If it’s sounding pretty rocking in the car, then it’s generally rocking in everything else. But I’ll check...

Re: Pro Tools -9173 errors

Okay I ordered a new video card, will report back if it makes any difference. I’m finding suggestions from the Avid forum that a better video card can reduce errors...worst case scenario I’ll be able to get a modern monitor/run Mojave...it still costs less than what one year of pro tools updates wou...
