Here it is, a song I got professionally mixed and mastered. But I won’t sell it, it’s available for download on Soundcloud -too much of a hassle to put up on iTunes and other sites, often requiring more payments and fees while I don’t expect many, if any, people to pay to download it.
The name’s from a screenplay I’m working on, I guess it’s like an accompaniment in my mind.
The first two series of Strugmo on iTunes.
No, not the arch-enemy of Doctor Who… I’ve decided to take the plunge and get one of my electronic tracks mixed and mastered for iTunes as a kind of learning experience. Because I’m often on the move, (teaching in Sydney now then back to Japan in September), there’s never been a point to get studio monitors or convert a room to home studio… besides, I still don’t have the ears of a professional when it comes to panning the stereo field, adjusting the equalisation to rid muddiness etc or the software to boost and compress it for a professional sale.
Even though they say you just need a computer to record and distribute music, there’s still no substitute for the professional mixing and mastering. Besides, if you want to sell on iTunes you need sales codes encoded in the file.
So, I’ll see how it goes, and might do a couple more songs down the line, not that I expect many sales since I haven’t even had many free downloads. But it also means the song is ready for use if someone wants to use the music in a documentary or Youtube video for instance.
I’ve put making demos on the back burner at the moment while I research into getting a track or two remixed and mastered. It would be nice to put them up on demos and off a sync licence for Youtubers or something, though I know there’s very little chance of making any money of the tracks. It would be a ‘vanity project’ so to speak. Anyways will look into it while I’m in Sydney, and then I’ll be back in Japan in September for my next 5 month teaching gig.
