Re: How do you choose your music distributor - e.g. CD Baby, DistroKid, TuneCore?

I do remember you giving that option. I don't plan on going with them just because of how little platforms they distribute to compared to others. Regardless, its good to know of the many available options.

Might be, althou right now you can get your music to spotify, itunes, deezer, etc for free, but most of the people don't know it.
How?

That's odd. You'd still need a ISRC at least to make $, though, right ?

I found that Sounddrop does free auto-splitting. It took a lot of emails and a few articles to get a handle on music distribution services and fees.

How do you yall deal with split-payments? CD Baby doesn't have it and Distrokid charges anyone with an account.

CD Baby is more expensive than others if you pay full price for distribution, in fairness they have a lot of services that add value..
What are you paying more for with CD Baby that's cheaper with DistroKid or Sounddrop? Also, how do you deal with split payments?

Distrokid is ~$30/yr and ~$50 for it to stay on for life.

Anyone got good info on deciding between getting ISRC only from a distributor or buying your own ?

CD Baby seems like the safe bet but DistroKid seems like the #2. This and how to handle the ISRC seem like the 2 biggest conversations few musicans are having often.

I've seen the Aris Take, but not the ProductionMusicLive. How do you compare RouteNote to the others?

How do you choose your music distributor - e.g. CD Baby, DistroKid, TuneCore?

From most of what I've read, for a US-based musician, CD Baby and DistroKid seem to be the best I've found few people able to discuss in the detail the pros and cons between them. That's without including Tunecore. Distrokid seems to keep most of their FAQ's basic and one simply tells you to create ...

Re: Summing Box Hardware or Plugin

From a technical point of view the sound can only get worse when feeding through an external hardware chain. Can you explain your opinion on summing along with any articles or studies for support? [...] That's a matter of taste. But this coloring is understood and can be simulated by plugins, too. ...

Summing Box Hardware or Plugin

I recently read from Mixerman book about a debate over the use of a summing box or plugin. Have you ever considered either to improve your mix-downs - i.e. The Dangerous 2-Bus and Slate Digital plugins?
