I'm not trying to be constructive at all. This guy dug up a 6 month old topic, just to trash the OP's work, and has been nothing but a miserable twat about it since. "Fuck off, Grandpa" pretty succinctly gets my message across without any of the "you show me yours, I'll show you mine" defensive nons...

Maybe even taking into account their taste, technical ability, genre, etc., etc. Exactly!!! If you cannot do that, then your criticism is not constructive. If you cannot do that, then your criticism is INVALID. If you think that there hasn't been any good music since the 70s, then you have no busin...

Oh. I didn't even make it this far on the first read. You can go ahead and fuck right off, grandpa. Your input here is irrelevant.

'Nuff said. You cannot relate to young people trying to make music today. To pretend that you can is pretentious and embarrassing. Move along.

A lot of people avoid edits altogether because of some lame dogma about how music is "supposed to be" recorded. I chose instead to become really fast and good at it. Pardon my immodesty, but I'm really, really fucking good at edits. And, if you're running a commercial recording studio in 2013, where...

Yeah, the choice of whether or not to use a click track has much more to do with whether or not the band is comfortable playing to a click track than it does with your intentions of editing. Editing across all tracks is pretty easy, even without a click track. You've typically got drum tracks, and t...

This whole thing is stupid. It had been 6+ months with no response. I'm sure the OP can take a hint. It was definitely not necessary to rub salt in the wound in such an up-your-own-ass kind of way. I hope the OP doesn't take the lack of response, or the delayed childish bullshit too personally. The ...

I fully support anyone who wants to make a go of it in DIY fashion. But, I also fully recognize what managers, booking agents, publicists, etc., bring to the table. My band has done a PR campaign. My band has signed a contract with a label. My band NEEDS a good booking agent! My overriding philosoph...

Yeah, the only reason I mentioned more touring is because regardless of what kind of PR you're spending your money on, you're way more likely to get press/spins if your band has upcoming shows in the markets where the PR is taking place. A couple thousand bucks is a small price to pay for getting yo...

It still takes a certain specific sequence of well-orchestrated events to break a band nationally and internationally in a viable, financially successful and sustainable way. The wild-card exceptions prove the rule, not the other way around. I don't disagree with this at all. My point is that the w...

http://www.musicbizacademy.com/articles/collegegigs.htm This article is 12 years old. I think you'd have to be crazy to get mixed up with this nonsense in 2013. It's MINDBLOWING how much money they want from you, just to be considered for gigs. At Oklahoma University there is a Campus Activities Co...

It makes a lot more sense if you're touring more extensively. Effective radio promo gets people out to shows. But, if that's all of the touring you've really got planned, I doubt that it would really be worth the investment. Unfortunately, if that's all of the touring that you guys can pull off, you...
