    Music is such a volatile and unpredictable market. You never know when a song will take off or not. Why risk taking a one-time work-for-hire fee for a few hundred dollars when you can have X% ownership? Owning and registering a publishing percentage ensures fair compensation if the release sells well. (For a quick crash course on royalties, rights, and publishing, check out our free course, How to Get All the Royalties You Never Knew Existed.) When we were just getting started, we worked with American artists like the Flashbulb and French hip-hop producer Kacem Wapalek. We also reissued the debut album by French house producer Bob Sinclar, Paradise, released in 1995 on Yellow Productions, and we teamed-up with labels such as Tru Thoughts and Einmusika Recordings.
  • Logic has a ton of great built-in MIDI sounds. Your first option is to select the sound of the keyboard you’d like to record. In the top left corner, there’s a box with a file folder inside. Click on that to open the menu. From there you can turn your MIDI sound into almost anything by searching through the available sounds: everything from synths to classic, electric, and grand pianos, and percussion sounds. Unfortunately, Jameson is probably now better known as the Russian President on three seasons of the TV show 24 than as “the dude who shredded on ‘Slow Ride.’”
  • Knowing your audience is a crucial aspect of marketing your music, but it is also important to consider your audience when writing your music. What kind of people (outside of your friends and family) do you want your music to appeal to? What artists do people in your target audience listen to? Which moods and lyrics does your audience relate to? The form here is also a puzzle box, making me use up all eight of my form abbreviations, not to mention the chorus variation and verse variations. So that’s actually 10 distinct sections, people! #Winning.
