My Opinion

Every artist should have a website…

In my opinion, because artists can have so many portals like TIK TOK, Facebook, Instagram, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer and many more, it is good to have in one place, everything about you and your project. Instead of naming all the individual places you rest your music, you can tell people to check your website www. mymusic.com which can hold all of your musical links. Whether it’s a website or even a one-page, it’s a great one stop place for people to find you.

MUSIC NEWS, INFO AND IDEAS

Yes, CDs sound better than vinyl.

One of the great myths in the audio world is that vinyl sounds better than CDs. It’s just not true. Sure, you might prefer the warm analog sound, specifically its crackling and other imperfections, as well as the visceral experience of actually dropping the needle on a spinning record, but CDs are simply the best sounding physical audio format that most people can get their hands on. Compared to vinyl, CDs are able to produce a wider dynamic range and more bass. Plus they’re not going to skip (unless scratched). Read more… (Article by GEAR PATROL)
