New site for Artists for selling downLds
All this site needs is a catalog of Artists, a forum and a few more pay options! It’s run by a nice guy too!
Has anyone here had any dealings with Worldphonic?
I found this paragraph a little hard to agree to:
a. Distribution of the Sound Recording(s). Subject to the terms hereunder, Licensor hereby grants to WEL a transferable,
non-exclusive, world-wide right and license, with the right to sublicense, to make copies of, distribute, sell, transmit
and publicly perform and synchronize to video the Sound Recording(s) using any medium of expression or transmission,
whether now known or hereafter

I ain't too crazy about that particular piece of language.
If you sell you CD through CDBaby.com, they can also distribute your songs through places like iTunes. I've actually made $2.47 commission from digital sales. Still saving up for the Ferarri, though.
Heh. You might as well promise the guy you’ll give him your first-born too!
I wouldn’t touch it with an eleven foot pole.
John - Yes I agree wow, the guy sent me the greatest email so I thougth I’de test drive the site. As I was signing up, I froze over that paragraph, it sounds so simular to mp3.com’s old agreement.
Hey you can almost affored the polish
TG - Right!
You know being listed with cdbaby is a very good thing but if your not offering these downloads or cds for sale form you site it’s a good idea to have a quick link directly to one of them.
Here is a musician based site that is in a beta stage; I haven’t read the terms yet because cdbaby put me there. But I will be going in to update artist info soon.

My stuff there:
Waddayaknow! I’m already in there!
Must’ve been part of the CDBaby “Digital Distribution Network” they have; it’s an opt-in feature that I can bail out of with a few mouse clicks.

Yes, everything was done in nTrack, in my living room. The drums were all sequenced in Fruity Loops using the "Tom Hicks" collection of samples, and synched to nTrack as a vsti slave. Bass recorded via a SansAmp Bass DI, electric guitars via a POD 2.0, acoustic guitars and violin mic'd with an SM58, vocals went through a StudioProjects C-1 and a ART tube pre-amp.
I also did my one mastering and package design.
Working almost entirely alone the whole time, the project took about two years, concept to final package.
Madness? I was sane when I started, and frazzeled and near deaf in one ear when I finished.
Well you know that “method to madness” is only a figure of speech.
In refrence to the mad scientest that labors in his laaboritory! It’s all very cool! I was pretty heavily critized for using a drum machine on my CD “Fountain of Blues”. But your rythm tracks sound great! The only thing that could sound better would be to hear the rythm section players joke around as they actually participated in laying down the tracks! You have some very nice work there John, thanks for sharing.
