Hi! Can I ask for some advice please? I need to buy a new audio interface as my current one is using me as an earth and I donít want to die just yet! Iím looking at a Focus rite itrack solo, as it seems to be compatible with GarageBand and iPads/Macs. Does anyone have any experience with this one? Or can anyone recommend a better one?

Ha! Thanks! I will definitely get back to work singing away in my homemade recording studio made from a wardrobe lined with egg boxes and duvets! Meanwhile, in a parallel universe, Skyline Tigers has just finished recording at Abbey Road Studios and is relaxing on her yacht while her personal recording technician is mixing her track!😂😂😂😂

I always liked a lot of FocusRite products so there is no wonder, at all, that their interface is good. Another not small issue is that all their products are built like tanks, basically idiot proof and built to take whatever punishment you can dish out. Now get back to work l,l,l sorry...Happy music making.

p.s. I got my FocusRite yesterday and I`ve been recording with gusto. Pleased with the quality of sound you get AND no risk of electrocution, Bonus!!!

I don`t think it`s the newest model in their line up as I`ve had mine for several years now. But Apogee does tend to update their line fairly often. I didn`t have much use for 10 zillion inputs so that model did it for me. Actually the built in interface for the Mac wasn`t terrible but I could immediately notice the difference in sound quality when i stepped up.

Damn, I didn`t realise the new Apogee was called the "One". What I meant was that I use an Apogee one!

I have an Apogee Jam, which I use for guitar and you can get them on eBay pretty cheaply now.

I use and have used the most inexpensive Apogee One interface for years and it has always given me clean, clear sound. For the most part it`s set and forget. I say for the most part as at first there is a bit of tweaking but once you find your settings your done.

The Apogee one looks great but a bit out of my price range! 😱Thanks for the reply though Juxta! Appreciate it. I think Iíll go with the focus!

Thanks, I`ll look at that one too!

I`ve been using the Apogee one and it`s been fantastic but I have no experience with others.

Music isn`t a place to put your hate. There is a big difference between constructive criticism and hate/bullying. And pardon me for saying it but if you can`t tell the difference keep your mouth shut!!!
Thanks Juxta (John) for laying down the law in this respect.

Don`t know if this is the best place to float this idea, but, here goes. I would love to hear a collab between Wizard Radio (on vocal) and one of our premier guitarists (Kloppenburg. Andy Pf, Swartz or ?) on my favorite ACDC song, "Night Prowler." Wizard`s vocal is not far off from Bon Scot`s and with, say, Andreas K.`s guitar...

I definitely agree, I also think Wizardís vocals are something really special. That would be an amazing track.

Am I alone in having noticed a drop in plays since the new feature (where you can choose a song to listen to) came in? Fair enough if my stuff is crap & no one wants to listen to it but I thought the randomness of before worked well. I`ve actually turned off the pop up so I`m forced to listen to whatever appears in rotation.

I have noticed this too however it`s likely that we are now getting better quality plays rather than people just listening for the minimum time and then skipping. There was A LOT of that going on!

Number of plays is really a bit meaningless if you are not getting engagement and building your fan base.

06 November 2017 09:01

Yeah. Plays reduced logically with the change to 1 minute but since the new feature appeared I`m definitely getting fewer plays. I try to limit active songs to about 4 as otherwise listens are spread too thin.

You`re NOT alone. But, I noticed it before that was added. Partly, I think, from more tracks added overall and the 60sec. (I haven`t seen one of your tracks even come up in a very long while. Maybe add more).-Trend.

Hey John.. I think a minute is to long... I can`t keep up so I started deleting my songs, I think i`ve deleted 1/2 of them... but you can see that instead of more and more people adding songs it keeps dropping cuz people can`t keep up. I was thinking 45 seconds would better. thanks

Let`s see how it goes for a while.

As we grow there are more people joining so we are getting more people listening to our music.

If I reduce the time it takes to get credits it just means more people listen for the minimum time just to get credits rather than actually enjoying the song and maybe leaving a comment, etc. which is ultimately what we all want really.

I have the same issue but I am happy to just have a handful of my songs in rotation at any one time and then rotate through them over a month or so.

That way it stays fresh for people.

Are you listening for a full minute? The minimum has been raised fro 30 secs to 60
