well i know i post stuff up there all the time (i actually even put our last album up for free download), and it is vocal based, but just falls into the abyss. i figured that maybe a lot of people here don't care for "songs," or at least my group's songs ;)

I know I would be hearing a lot more of what other people are making. I very rarely go outside of the General forum, although I know I should. Then again I probably should be making music or money instead of being on here in the first place!
Exactly, that is what is needed! The Reaper guys have a streaming Shoutcast station playing a mix of songs from users and it's very eclectic. It would be a lot more convenient to load something like that up rather than hunt down a bunch of different tracks in separate threads and links. I'd love to see something like that here.

Seems we've come around full circle.
The label will only cause more pre-conceived notions will it not?

For me… the songs I’ve worked on have acoustic guitar and/or electric bass, some type of drum beat (done electronically), singing, and spoken word “rapping“. What genre is that?

criticism is highly over rated.

I enjoy soundcloud, because you get to see the exact number of the dozens of people who listen but don't comment. I don't think you can take that as anything but a negative, which probably means you're on the right track. I spent years making pop candy (think more Pet Sounds than Kanye), partially because I liked it and partially with the intention of impressing people on some level. Now I'm on a mission to make the most ugly, repetitiously rhythmic, guttural shit I can come up with, purely for my own enjoyment with grooving to it, and have rather enjoyed the disdain I sense from even old friends about it. Not what you were expectin', eh? Success, yo.

Not like I was getting rich off it even when it was pretty...

haha really?

its not that simple, you cant listen to everything people say about your music, but for technical issues a third party is very necessary, thus why it's hard to master your own material, but when given to a dedicated engineer he can make it shine

"snares too loud"

"kick is missing transient"

"too much compression"

"melody isnt loud enough"

"drums could use a fill here"


not everyone has perfect ears for mixing

I've got 3 answers (since I admit I don't browse the "link you music" forum)

-1)
I don't to go wasting my time stumbling through threads and sound cloud accounts of people who title their thread "new track up" or "just finished a song." There are certain types of music I don't like. I simply don't want to visit those threads.
+10

I know there are songs that do not fit any genre, but hey, you could define it (fat, agressive, ambiant, disco-hop...)

-2) ableton forums are for me a great source of technical knowledge, not a site where I browse artists (I go myspace, soundcloud, or blogs for that purpose)

-3) the music we post here (yes I did) is mostly crap. (anyway, the music I listened to when I had the courage to browse this forum)

peace :D
