Hi Ott, I hope you're enjoying the long hours in your studio or frolicking in the hills making the new album. I'm very excited to hear it. I notice you have your tunes available via Bandcamp as well as iTunes, and presumably elsewhere. I'm wondering if you have any experience worth sharing with digital distribution? I'm about to release an EP and am looking into CD Baby, Reverb Nation, et al. Any advice? Best wishes, Andrew.
All I know is that that between Bandcamp and Tunecore [iTunes, Amazon, etc etc] I get a fantastic service for very little overhead. Admin is easy and Bandcamp in particular makes it possible to offer a personal service and keep control of every aspect.
I have no knowledge of any of the other companies.
Hi Ott, I love how your snares sound. I know no two snares are the same, but I just wonder what compression settings (attack, ratio, release) you would normally use, roughly speaking. Cheers!Ott responded on 04/27/2015 Next question
Have you heard any of Frank Zappa's synclavier works? https://youtu.be/MPOYmf6tpg0?t=49s Programmed in the very early 90's with a synclavier on an Apple II computer (notes typed in one-by-one on a green/black screen). The level of cheeky musical wit and technical ingenuity is ridiculous.Ott responded on 04/27/2015
