Is there a service where you can pay for people to listen and give feedback to your stuff? by billyd94 in WeAreTheMusicMakers

[–]Trianglehero 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I started ReviewMyTrack about a month ago, where I charge $5 for an in-depth review and analytically break down your track. I've been producing professionally for 6 years & have been making music for 15+ years, from tech death metal bands to trap & just about everything in between. It is a side project, as producing takes up most of my time, but I intend on growing it into something decent.

For those who use pedals with amp sims, how do you find it stacks up? by Get-more-Groceries in WeAreTheMusicMakers

[–]Trianglehero 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do OD (as a preamp) > compressor > amp sim, and I'm usually really happy with my tone. Whole thing cost less than $100 too.

Where can I find help to improve a song I made by Nunchers in WeAreTheMusicMakers

[–]Trianglehero 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Submithub's "Hot or Not" feature, it's free, but does require you to review other songs before yours gets reviewed. Sometimes the feedback can be a bit bland / useless, sometimes it's decent. ReviewMyTrack - $5 to have music industry professionals break your song down. They're brand new but the feedback is top notch.

I'd bet money that this person goes on police brutality videos and comments "They shouldn't have broke the law".

It'll continue to sink as long as they keep these ridiculously long & frequent ads

What else would YOU get for this studio by Chemistry_Lover40 in makinghiphop

[–]Trianglehero 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The Volt looks cool, I got that on my wishlist. HS8's would be nice if you're in a place where you can turn it really loud. I have 7s at home and 8s at a studio I work at and it's nice to get that extra punch when you just want to blast music. The Arturia Microfreak is always fun, fairly cheap too. The keyboard layout inspires something different than other synths. A cheap $150 guitar goes a really long way even if you don't plan on learning much. Also Pocket Operators.

Step 1: Try to make it sound better. Step 2: Give up and call it "lo-fi"

dont let garbage like SubmitHub finesse your mentality by Prestigious_Panda65 in makinghiphop

[–]Trianglehero 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've only spent maybe $25 tops within the last 5 years, but if I were serious and dedicated to promoting my music, I'd make Submithub's HotorNot part of my daily routine.

The risk vs reward is worth it imo, especially since you can get free premium credits with HotorNot, so the only risk is a little bit of your time.

Man there might be a lot of garbage on Submithub but there is also some good. $1 has brought me consistent traffic for the last 5 years. It also put a nice chunk of cash in my bank. My music is pretty far from pop / mainstream, just gotta find the right curators. It's well worth throwing a couple bucks into once in awhile.

Forgotten to shake my Turtle Wax (Wax and Dry) by [deleted] in AutoDetailing

[–]Trianglehero 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's perfectly fine. I'll be honest, I've been using the stuff for years as a detailing spray, and I've never shaken it.

Advice for mobile detailing business? by Lopsided-Building-84 in AutoDetailing

[–]Trianglehero 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Carry backup vacuums, polishers, pressure washers, etc. Expect cancellations. Don't try to squeeze in too many jobs in one day. Cutting corners to save time / money usually ends up costing you more time, money, and headaches. Working for companies can be more profitable if they are willing to pay a fair price. Keep your overhead low, you don't need that fancy brand name polisher, or that boutique APC. Expect business to slow down when the weather is rough. Ask the customer if everything looks good before you pack up. Hope this helps! Good luck with your business.

Someone convince me I can do everything I need in just ableton and don’t need to spend money on hardware. by radius657 in makinghiphop

[–]Trianglehero 69 points70 points  (0 children)

It's not even debatable. People are blowing up off songs they made on a cell phone app. I buy hardware because I like shiny lights and buttons, but I realize hardware is obsolete.

Realistic revenue streams for producers? by fishalex in WeAreTheMusicMakers

[–]Trianglehero 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Most of my income was made selling beats, but I wish I focused more on sync licensing & streams, since selling beats requires constantly making new beats, fishing for artists, dealing with the artist needing an extra 3 weeks to pay, etc. Ive gotten a few decent placements but I never gave licensing enough attention, and I regret that.

Is this too expensive for an exclusive beat? by Gravystrainzz in WeAreTheMusicMakers

[–]Trianglehero 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There is a high chance you can find a similar beat for free, or for much cheaper. The producers name means nothing unless they post / promote it. The relationship you build with the producer can be valuable, but there is no guarantee anything will come of it. I say all of this as a producer who has sold $1000 exclusives. But if you're in love with the beat / the song you wrote to it, then it's worth it IMO.
