    Cheaper and easier than Adaptiverb. Perhaps not as clean and pristine, though.

    I have both, of course... chalk and cheese...

    I also have Black hole too.

    And this morning I bagged the free Supermassive.

    All have their party trick in my opinion.

  2. Saw their post on Twitter

    @Fleer I think you may need to have a look at this one...

    I've bagged it, anyway, though other artists are going to suffer as a result because I've had to use my PayPal balance from my own Bandcamp sales...

    why are you putting it on a streaming service?

    what do you class as a "streaming service?"

    and gave away thousands and thousands of CDs


    I don't think I'd have ever done that

    a couple... a dozen, perhaps

    must have cost a fortune to rip and then distribute all those CDs

    Having your music up on a streaming service does not guarantee someone will listen to it.

    why not do what I often do - give it all away for free

    personally I have been doing this for a long, long while

    (I've done it myself as a way of saying thanks)

    I've tried giving my stuff away on Bandcamp but many want to give me money instead

    unless it is (in a little way) about the prestige of making a few bucks off your music....and I'm not saying there is anything wrong with that. Just admit it to yourself, is all I'm saying

    for me, personally, Bandcamp was an experiment

    up until setting up there everything I ever created was uploaded to SoundCloud and set to free download

    after a while I noticed that I was getting a lot of my stuff downloaded... not like hundreds or thousands but a lot more than I expected

    so Bandcamp was set up to see if people were happy to pay for downloading my stuff


    nah, definitely not, not me

    we shouldn't kid ourselves about our motives

    as this is a lengthy post especially for me, what do you think my motives are?

    making a ton of money off my art would be great, but it certainly isn't my motive

    I think it is something I simply must do

    I've done other things through my life... fishing... photography... motorcycling... barefoot waterskiing... had a load of doggies...

    but I always end up back in my little studio, making sound stuff

    And we shouldn't kid ourselves that it is in any way the route to being heard


    but it is a nice feeling when you know that someone is listening, and, probably enjoying that experience, right?

    prior to 2000 I would sometimes hand over a tape to a friend or work colleague

    that didn't go well... I do not create anything for "the masses" and I gave up on friends and family a long time ago, except for my poor sons that sometimes have to endure listening to something every now and then, and my poor, poor wife who lives in the same house as me.

    never stopped me doing stuff, though

    I really don't expect to make anything out of music, its a hobby, but I am considering putting the project I am currently working on, which is somewhat different, and I hope better than the stuff on my Soundcloud on Bandcamp as an EP.  If so I will be trying to drum up some sort of local interest because of the background story to the songs.

    And as you can see, @Philip G Hunt, from Glyn's quote above, he appears to have decided on a route that quite a few of us take, upload to Bandcamp, see how that goes... charge for it or not, it doesn't matter. 


    right... been at this too long now so I'm going to hit the Submit Reply button... my new drone is begging for my attention...
