  1. Then you go get a job that pays enough to support you... If this really leads to a drop in jazz musicians and live jazz is something that the public wants to hear then they'll start being paid more, supply and demand What IS ignorant is thinking that musicians should be subsidized because they should be able to live a musician lifestyle despite the fact that the demand for their work isn't enough for them to live on.
  2. Fascinating, I have friends who've had issues with their discography's being merged with another artist of the same name who got on Spotify first so I think this is just bad design rather than a conspiracy to take money from artists... And it seems like Spotify has no real reason to do this? They don't make money per streams(ignoring ads but that's nothing compared to subscription revenue), they just pay artists per play, so why create fake music and then pay themselves nothing....
  3. Hot take that I actually believe: Like everything else on our society art should be paid for as if it is the commodity that is. If an artist is motivated enough to create something great to get their message/ideas/whatever out there they'll do it without the draw of money. And if it's great it's likely will get recognition and therefore income as a result anyway. This also weeds out the people making mindless art that wastes peoples time and people that aim to soullessly hook people for no reason other than money.
  4. I agree there's far more noise but I believe there's also more great music being created now just because of the sheer amount of it being made nowadays. Guess it's impossible to really quantify that however.
  5. Takes 5 minutes more and it costs more money to aquire the music that way, even if it was just as quick as searching in Spotify the average person wouldn't spend the extra money and that's not laziness.
  6. Yeah I agree they may be getting rich off artists work but at least they're stopping piracy and funnelling that money(Ok, some) back to artists rather than artists getting nothing. I'm far from a ludite but the real issue is that the internet has made it so easy to distribute and share music which means people no longer need to pay anything at all. So the only reason they will pay is for convenience which streaming services now provide, and artist do make at least some money off that now. Can't help but feel like some people complaining are just pissed off that they can
  7. Mate what are you on about, the average listener wouldn't even be able to tell the difference between high quality flacs and what spotify streams. In their eyes it's just a pain in the ass and more expensive for literally no change to buy hq stuff from artists and put in on their phones. Hate steaming services all you want but you have to be braindead to think it's just "laziness". Everyone's always crying about how the music industry is ruined thanks to streaming services, piracy, whatever the fuck. Just sounds like excuses for why they aren't making bank. In the music industry wh
  8. Anyone how a way to control the pitch of a sample using the automation editor? The effect commands don't give me enough control. Thanks
  9. I'm only just starting to get into jungle but I enjoyed that last track a lot, good stuff
  10. Hard to choose but probably Amo Bishop Roden Sounds wrong saying that, but it is the one I come back to most often
  11. It definitely makes me not want to read it at all, that's for sure
  12. They are cool when you overcompress some drums on purpose but that's about it. If you're doing live recorded stuff like vocals sure use one but other than they they're trash
