    Aiva - Artificial Intelligence Composition: beta starting today

    I’m unskilled so I use all the tools I can to compensate for that. It’s faster and easier to use tech than it is to learn how to do things the older way.

    Reaching for "the next level"

    I would not compare what I do to Quincy Jones. Of course he is in another league. He grew up in conditions that forced him to become proficient in as many instruments as possible. So he is great at what he does. I am doing something different. Besides, humility is not my strong suit. I am only...

    Reaching for "the next level"

    Too much work and too much money for all of that. I can make three songs a day with computers. With real instruments, there are a lot more steps and money involved just to get a song to sound decent. Quincy Jones and others grew up in a time where that was all they had. We have more, so why be...

    Aiva - Artificial Intelligence Composition: beta starting today

    Why do human beings have to be eliminated? Technology is here to serve humanity, not replace it. Only morons want to replace people with technology. Humans are smarter than AI because they understand what intellect is and know how to apply it. So humans need to use AI to do menial grunt work...

    Build feedback please

    Yeah, I understand. I am deciding on whether to get a bigger and better laptop (nothing insane like what you are getting) or to get a slightly improved laptop and then but some courses. Honestly, I think the hardware upgrades are the first priority. Adding that extra RAM or getting an SSD...

    Build feedback please

    I don’t know. Is it really the right thing to do to spend all of that money on technology? Isn’t it better to spend that money on training to become a better composer?

    I'm a fraud

    I don’t view modesty or humility as virtues.

    Would doing "a song a day" help me speed up the composition process or just result in frustration?

    Well, what do you consider to be “working in the industry”? Do you have any music with production music libraries?

    ASCAP Issues

    I don’t feel like arguing. So I’ll just say that I am no fool and will continue to fight for what is mine. One way or another, I am going to win.

    ASCAP Issues

    No. They need to do better. I’d pay $100 a year ($25 deduction from royalties per quarter) if it would help to bring in more royalties. But if the PROs did get that from each member, they would get comfortable with that money and go back to slacking off. It’s just how big systems work. So us...

    The future for musicians in streaming media

    I understand. It is a cruel reality that composers are some of the hardest workers but get the least respect for their work.

    Keeping your DAW off Internet

    I use Splice so I gotta stay connected. Hackers aren’t extorting small fries for Bitcoin money. They go after businesses with important info who will cough up cash quickly to be done with the ordeal.

    The future for musicians in streaming media

    That’s my point: loading up on garbage to bulk up their offerings. But I don't really care about the woes of streaming companies. I care about composers getting paid. And I also want to know what publishers are going to do to help composers get paid.

    The future for musicians in streaming media

    Despite the hype, most shows on streaming platforms are there because they wouldn’t attract a large enough fan base on regular TV. It’s kind of like the shows have a chance to blow up, but not quite. Some of the stuff is good, but a lot of the exclusive Netflix content is kind of lackluster. I...

    How to promote original orchestral-style music?

    So you want more exposure? Do you have any videos of you playing live? You could build a YouTube channel and use that as a promotion vehicle. Also if you own a studio, you could take photos of your equipment and create an Instagram profile. Believe me, there are many shy people who use social...

    How to promote original orchestral-style music?

    I guess I don’t understand what the problem is. You don’t want to put in the time to promote your music. You don’t have the money to promote your music. So what do you expect to change?

    Hired to write a style you dislike/don't care about?

    So if the money is right, just find some people to collaborate with. Splitting a nice sync fee to land a gig is worth it. You get to dabble in something new, you find someone else to work with for future projects, and you give the client what they want. Why try to put in 100% effort for a...

    Reaching for "the next level"

    I can work on getting better. I’m not opposed to that. But I think I would do better by focusing on what I know and work with other people who are great at what they do. Pop music is often done by small armies of people. I’d like to work in that capacity and build up a bigger catalog by...

    Reaching for "the next level"

    So the “next level” for some is about becoming a better musician. For me, the “next level” is about making more money. I don’t care how I get there either. Learn new instruments, use ghostwriters, use AI to compose. As long as I get my money up, I’m good. I don’t mean to offend anyone, I’m...

    Hired to write a style you dislike/don't care about?

    So why not collaborate with people who do those genres? They can do some parts, well most parts, and you fill in gaps as needed. Those genres always need someone with skills to replace programmed melodies with real playing. Much more easier to knock out than orchestral music, and pays better in...

    Top non-exclusive royalty free music libraries

    Not really. Just upload 20,000 of those 40,000 pieces and you have a shot! Honestly, it takes a ton of music and a ton of work to get noticed. But a composer should just buckle down and do the work to make things happen. Or a composer can just get a day job and relax.....
