With his final piece, I think Stefano achieved a really amazing vibrancy and power. The way it climbs the register increases the tension and emotional pull. The monophonic transitions create urgency and more power. And the different treatments of the different sections create a lot of interest and variation. Overall, he created a beautiful piece!” — Ian (Soundfly Mentor)

I don’t need to tell you that podcasting has blown up again and with heavy-hitting content like This American Life, Serial, and Mark Maron’s WTF, to name a few, it’s easy to see why. Content is better than ever. But with an influx of great content and more listeners also comes a lot of crap and poorly produced podcasts in a saturated market.

Companies that donate to marching bands

As you can imagine, this collection contains many treasures, so we approached them with a proposal to release certain works in a limited edition, and expand the reach of this organization to collectors and listeners everywhere. They loved the idea and chose three cultural icons of which they happened to have exceptional archival recordings.

The Shure SM7b is a classic broadcast microphone. Used in radio stations all over the world, this large diaphragm dynamic microphone is known for its smooth, warm sound. With built-in tone controls, the SM7b lets you fine-tune the sound of your voice right at the source. An internal shock mount and pop filter prevent mechanical noise as well as plosives. And the built-in swivel mount makes finding the perfect mic placement a breeze.

On this day, 57 years ago, James Brown and his Famous Flames recorded what would become one of the most earth-shattering funk and soul albums of all time.

The most significant similarities are the chord progressions and the instrumentation, neither of which is protectable under copyright law. While Sheeran may have been inspired by Gaye, these similarities are insignificant, and these cases should be thrown out — a perspective echoed by experts in the field.

Soundfly welcomes new voices each month to offer unique perspectives, shine a light on unexpected musical worlds, and help our readers find their sound.

The great thing about studying pop tunes is that they very rarely stray from a given key. They like to keep things rather diatonic. This means that with just a small bit of practice, you can start to recognize these chord progressions for yourself, even without your instrument in hand. We will go much deeper into our understanding of how these chords function in later articles, but for now let’s just get comfortable with what we get from “Sorry.”

If you are submitting a track to a publisher to be considered for the music collection they will be pitching for an upcoming Netflix series, should you have your song mastered? Absolutely! If you have a full album mixed and ready to release on iTunes to share with the world should it be mastered? Definitely! In cases where you need to put your best foot forward, producing a fully mixed and mastered song will be the best way to go, every time.

There’s no doubt that Logic Pro X is an amazing DAW filled with a variety of stock sounds, effects, and loops to use in your tracks. But in addition to these features, Logic allows you to add third-party plugins into your workflow with ease. In fact, it’s designed for that. So you can feel free to browse the websites of awesome plugin manufacturers like Waves, Slate Digital, Native Instruments, UAD, and Arturia to see what they’ve got for sale anytime.

Me too. Those “magical things” that come from our being open to and joyful about our mistakes — those are the moments that make music like Tredici Bacci’s feel like such a gift. Both intricate and broad, both ridiculous and honest, both precise and full of human breadth and skew, La Fine Del Futuro is a triumph of Hanes’ philosophy about taking the art of laughing (at himself, and with others) to be the very serious business that it is.

I also enjoy the version from Morimur performed by Christoph Poppen and the Hilliard Ensemble, and I’m not alone. This is one of the most popular classical albums of all time.
