I have a question: Is the big Pandora cut in pay hitting Songwriter/Publisher/Performing Artist/Rights Owner, or only hitting Songwriter/Publisher?

Nuke Allen, good question, but my post is not ridiculous. To answer your question, I got in on an early beta of this service, and one of the first royalty amounts already paid to me was for Rhapsody plays, separate and additional to what I get for 'distribution' payments. It's not 'instead' of being paid through BMI/ASCAP or SoundExchange, etc.. - it's a more efficient and powerful mechanism to monitor and actually get the payments that are owed to me. I'd much rather get a lot more of my earnings and pay ten percent to have this done, than pay no percent and hardly get anything. If you are already thriving as is, by all means, stay where you are!

I joined the Tunecore Songwriter Service, and I'm blown away by the high level of customer service and results (yes, already) delivered by the Tunecore publishing admin team. Steven Cravis http://www.stevencravis.com http://www.facebook.com/stevencravismusic

Facebook seems more natural to me for talking, connecting with friends and family about any topic. The myspace culture is more like an over all acceptance and understanding that people are there to promote their (music, comedy, films, etc..) and connect at the same time. When friends at myspace comment with a band promotion onto my myspace page see www.twittermyspacebook.com , I approve those comments (as well as more personal ones) because I want to cross promote other artists and find, for the most part, that my occasional comment/promotion on other pages will be accepted too. The music player on myspace is MUCH more convenient for artists than the odd work-arounds which I'm still trying to figure out for facebook. I'm surprised that facebook doesn't add at least the ability to customize background and text colors.

Jake, thanks for this amazing article, and thanks to the many other experts who have commented here. I'm not a recording engineer,I'm more of a keyboardist, but trying to find my way with the many tools available through Logic Studio. Do you know if Universal Audio 1176 or Bomb Factory are available for Logic? Also, is there a best order that reverb and delay be added on to a track, one before the other, or is this not an issue? Also, does anyone recommend any other software similar to Waves plug L-3 for easy ultramaximizing, for the purpose of getting a good gain in the final mix, yet retaining a good amount of depth and dynamics (sort of a compromise to address the issue that Bimbo Patrol was mentioning)?
