Re: Legal advice on white labels

Here's an easy way to find out if you have what it takes to sell records. This is something that I observed while living in NYC. Get some gear for a live gig like a portable PA system. Set up at a location where there is pedestrian traffic. Put a tip jar. Start playing your music, it doesn't matter ...

Re: Roland AIRA TR-8 vs Roland TR-909 & TR-808 comparison de

I remember a house artist that did well telling me he only sampled an MC-303 with an MPC2000 and also used a JV1080. You can now probably find an MC-303, Akai S2000, and a JV1080 all for under $500 and still make 90s sounding house music that sells. The moral story is it's not what you have but the ...

Re: Roland AIRA TR-8 vs Roland TR-909 & TR-808 comparison de

Villalobos music could easily be software like most minimal or a sampler. Real XOX boxes are great for authentic retro music just like using any old drum machine. One thing positive I will say about Roland is the people involved in the original TR's were involved in the TR-08. It's not cheesy sample...

Re: Producing Berghain techno?

The owners need to rename the club the Haunted Mansion Stalingrad. Spooky sound effects over every track. uhh...what? Bad joke. Here's my new club.

96 khz is good sound quality. Recreating the originals would no be in the $500 range. Because of the popularity of EDM and the nature of EDM the marketing isn't that deep.

Re: Legal advice on white labels

A person on the phone did say 300 was going to be the future limit. Maybe they didn't follow through. If you are having to press such a low quantity of vinyl maybe you shouldn't release records. Swallow your pride. If you are just starting out okay but it's like an aspiring actor working at Starbuck...

Re: Roland AIRA TR-8 vs Roland TR-909 & TR-808 comparison de

I'll have to check one out at the store but its all sold out. No store demos. It's hard for me to get exited over an 808/909/303. It's to the point where hearing an 808 or 909 or 303 acid sounds is not that exiting anymore.

Re: Legal advice on white labels

@ John Clees. commissioning work is a bit foreign these days but that's what I did. On Archer when I was getting quotes I was told 300 was the limit. What I would recommend is paying for at least a 1-color label, a record sleeve, a record jacket, and pressing enough vinyl so you can either break eve...
