Subject: Mudcatters on MP3.com
From: Alice
Date: 03 Jan 01 - 09:27 PM

I started creating a page at mp3.com last weekend, right before the flu hit me. I was just using my little computer mic, they are unaccompanied, so no big "studio" sound from me, no back up band, just singing. It took awhile for the approval process, especially because it was a holiday, and I'm still trying to get some of the jpg art "album covers" to show up...

I know that there are Mudcat members who are on mp3.com and I would like to see them add a link to their pages in this thread. Maybe we can give each other support and also have this chance to hear each other, (especially for those of us who can't get into HearMe).

Here is a link to my page with three songs at this point in time:
MP3.com - Alice Flynn

Here are two people that I know are on mp3.com, and I am sure there are other Mudcat members.
Willie O
hesperis

Please add links to your pages.

My mp3 page is at:

www.mp3.com/BillCameron"

It has a variety of trad and original material including Paddy West, All For Me Grog, some original instrumentals and songs. The most popular track is the slow tune "The Long Walk Home" which even broke into the Celtic top 40 briefly. There's a CD one can purchase online if one wishes.

I'm listening to Alice right now--very, very nice. Even on a lo-fi connection. Thanks for the thread, Alice!

Warning! Keeping an mp3.com site can be an even more absorbing hobby than Mudcat.

Dan and Allan, thank you for the compliments. I'll add more now that I'm feeling better. I lost the weekend being sick, and since I recorded those Friday night and then was immediately flat out sick, I kept having weird dreams about mp3's!! Next song planned to go up is Kitty of Coleraine.

Susan AR, I really enjoyed reading about your Civil War group. I have to download each song though, since I can't get streaming to work for some reason, but I'll do that later and listen.

I'm creating an mp3 "radio station" of just Mudcatters from this thread. It is called THE WILD BIRD'S NEST. Frank, when I choose CelticDragon, all it gives me is a song called "Aftershock" to add to the station, not the song titles on your page. Why aren't your songs available?

I'll post a link to the station when I'm done. Maybe we can add this to resources? It would be a way to easily listen to samples of Mudcat member works without having to go to each individual mp3 page.

I went to listen to The Wild Bird's Nest. I discovered that All for Me Grog played fine but your (Alice's) pieces were garbled as though they were being played back in my machine without a buffer (ff-on-off-on-off-on etc). However, there had been an indication in Win Amp that the program was prebuffering on this end. It may be my problem but in case it isn't, I thought i would let you know. Other Mudcatters cans ee if they have similar problems.

mp3 support said there are some things their engineer staff are working on.

Here is an addition to the Wild Bird's Nest, the Mudcat station I put together - Celtic Dragon. There is another band on mp3 called CelticDragon, so a bit confusing in finding the one that is Mudcat related.

Alice, what a wonderful idea! Thanks for making it so!

I've been frustrated at not being able to get my brother's classical works and songs on mp3. Each time I'd hear about another Mudcatter doing it, I'd get after Rog that we needed to do something. Yours was the one that did it. :-) We went out over the w/end and bought a keyboard with midi. SO, now I've got all of this classical music and songs to get into the computer, mix, etc.! What fun, though! Thanks!!

Paul G. NICE TO SEE you!!!

Sourdough, this is the response I got from tech support when I asked them about the on/off problem you had when listening to my songs. It doesn't explain why you could hear Willie-O's song while streaming, but the information may be of help to others trying to listen at mp3.com. I also found out that artists get paid a few more pennies if the files are downloaded instead of streamed. I'm still new to the site, figuring it all out (and climbing in the charts) now being promoted by Celtic Ways, like Jenric and Celtic Dragon.

Hello,

Please make sure that they are using the play quality recommended for their connection type. If they are using a 56k dial-up Internet connection or slower, it is recommended that they use 'Lo-Fi' playback.

If you are using a connection faster than 56k (ISDN, DSL, cable, etc.) and are still experiencing problems, please try 'Lo-Fi' playback. If 'Lo-Fi' playback works correctly, you may want to try changing the 'buffer' settings in the player you are attempting to use. For instructions on changing buffer settings, please contact the creator of your player.

Here's some info regarding the functionality of the playback links:

Hi Fi: This will stream (play) a 128kbps high-quality stereo MP3 file; high bandwidth (T1, T3, DSL, ISDN, "cable modem" or equivalent) required.
Lo Fi: This will stream (play) a 24kbps low-bitrate, mono MP3 file; designed for lower-bandwidth users (28.8K modem connection required; 56K modem connection recommended).
Download: This will download and save the complete 128kbps stereo MP3 file to your hard drive.

In addition, all Radio Play links on the MP3.com site will now stream (play) 24kbps MP3s.

If your player is not functioning properly, download and install the most recent version of your player. You can also download a file called MP3.fix (for PC users only, NOT FOR MAC USERS). You can find it at:

http://software.mp3.com/software/individual/windows/utility/2794.html

If you are unable to obtain a copy of MP3Fix and you are still unsuccessful after attempting to use MP3Fix, or are a MAC user, please visit the FAQ on setting your MIME types located here:

I'll try the mp3fix thing...my ability to stream anything from mp3.com, even at Lo-Fi, is extremely flaky. For some reason it's often the case that I can play the "artist radio" on an mp3.com artist page, but clicking on play for a particular song usually takes me straight to the mp3.com "help" page--which is no help at all, tells me my computer isn't properly equipped to play mp3's (wrong) and to download MusicMatch (which I don't want).

Thanks for the hint.

Just want to say Good Job! to Clansfolk, too. At age 18, you are well on your way to developing a nice traditional band. Let me know when you have more files recorded. Don't be shy about the home-made sound, all I have is a cheap mic connected to the computer in my living room - when I record I have to deal with barking dogs, ringing phones, and the sound of the furnace starting up!

Alice, before you start recording, you're supposed to turn off the furnace. Then you sing till you're done or your toes turn blue, then you turn the furnace on again...

I went through this very rigorous procedure with the recording of "The long walk home" and a couple of other tunes on my site--We were using fancy digital equipment in the producer's house, in January, and it was just part of the routine to get clean tracks. Course that guy was a fanatic. Because the previous commercial recording he'd made there, in summer, windows had been open, and the recording was released complete with traffic noises.

Ditto for the phone, as for the dog, well I've been there. Another time recording at my house, my old dog was being exceedingly mellow and relaxed as we were recording in an upstairs bedroom; in the middle of the song he quietly ambled upstairs, walked into the room and contentedly flopped down; quietly except for the extremely loud clattering of claws on the plywood floor. We too collapsed but in uncontrolled laughter. Wish we'd saved that take.

Stay warm,

LOL! Bill, my dog was jingling dog tags and clicking toenails across the hardwood floor yesterday when I started recording. He was sleeping very contentedly until I turned on the mic. I've learned to unplug the phone. Actually, the refrigerator and furnace hum doesn't seem to be detected by my microphone - or else my speakers are so bad I just can't hear the background noise!

By the way, my newest project on mp3 last night was to create a storytelling page. I'm doing children's stories I have written (mostly for toddlers) and re-telling old folk tales, with a little singing included in the stories.

You can have more than one site, just signing up as a new artist each time with a different "band name". For those of you who do comedy, poetry, stories, etc., look under the genre called Spoken Voice. You can create mp3's of your own work and read/recite work that is public domain.

Jon, I'm afraid to go there!

Harpgirl, my experience with using RealJuke to make MP3's for mp3.com was not successful -- it encodes them at the wrong bitrate for MP3.com which does not accept them. (they need to be set at 128 / 44 mhz / stereo.) They are working mp3's but not usable by mp3.com/ Maybe you can change those settings, I just used another mp3 encoding program that uses the mp3.com requirement settings as the default. (I use bladeenc, elegantly simple it is.)

Alice, you are definitely hooked on this aren't you? Good work you're doing too.

I am getting increasingly frustrated with mp3.com's lack of good customer service and caring, and I would recommend other bands who are starting out in the digital music world to put their music up at iuma, or musicbuilder. Maybe put up a couple of tracks on mp3.com, so that you can be featured on stations, but don't make it your main focus. They introduced a "Premium Artist Service" or PAS, where if you want to get paid per play by them, you have to first pay them $20 per month. They are still listing the "amount earned" right on the page of non-PAS artists, even though those artists are NOT earning anything from them. It is extremely misleading.

I will gradually be moving my stuff elsewhere, after a succesion of responses to my letters that were full of propaganda, and did not even answer my questions or concerns...

Good Luck!

As long as the other artist is owned by the same admin, there is no problem putting your tracks up on different artist pages.

But if you work with someone else to produce a song, and both want to put it up on both artists' pages, then you would have to write to coversongs@mp3.com before even uploading the track, and be prepared to fax written permission to them. Also, be prepared for them to lose the info... so keep it handy to resend it.

That's as far as I know.

Mixed feelings about MP3.com in this forum. I've been one of their top NMA promoters since Christmas and joined last September but only handle Celtic and folk music rather than the common electronica that dominates the top MP3.com spots.

Like many folks I have been niggled by the recent frequent changes by the company, but I have also placed music on other sites around the net - and still find MP3.com the most responsive. Visitors are still very happy. I hand a lot of business cards out to people I talk to each week which sends new people to MP3.com each week. Several get back to me telling me they are having great fun on the site with all that new quality music.

It leads me to believe that if all artists on MP3.com are active in sending new people to MP3.com it will maintain a profitable place for all artists.

Regarding covering the new $20 PAS, I have been surprised by a new solution. Some of my new artists have covered their PAS not by downloads but from profits from the new "Back The Band" program. That really works! Its also shooting up the hits on my pages, which leads to more hits for the artists on the Celtic Ways roster.

Every success to you all

Hi, John, good to see you here.

I signed up with John at Celtic Ways to be my mp3.com promoter back around the time I started this thread. He is modest in not telling you more about his extensive music background and involvement with bands in Scotland and Britain, and now in the US (and worldwide, through mp3.com). John works very hard to keep the artists in Celtic Ways updated with information about all the Celtic Ways groups, their performances, new music, reviews, and strategies in getting the music we love listened to. He is a very positive force in forming connections among the Celtic Ways groups in different regions of the country, encouraging bands to get together for performances, keeping everyone informed on new developments on almost a daily basis with his email newsletter.

John has a very positive and hardworking approach to helping the world music artists that he promotes. Two of the most successful in world music at mp3.com are Celtic Ways artists, The Brobdingnadian Bards and Brendan O'Loughlin. Here is just a bit of what John has had to say about their path to being successful at reaching a very wide listening audience at mp3.com:

---
"The formula is still the same as it always has been in music. You must put more effort into building a fan base than into selling music products. Right through history musicians have been beggars because nobody ever owes them anything. There is not a market out there that is going to snatch your music products the moment they are released. Nobody really cares about what you do or that you even exist - until you build your own fan base.

Music touches the soul so you have to find the souls your music touches, heals, excites and is a friend to. When you network these souls together you'll have an extended network of soul mates that will naturally look out for all new music you provide."
end quote ----

In spite of all its flaws, at this time I still find mp3.com to be the best way to reach people with my music. For me, being isolated in Montana, it is even more an important vehicle for sharing the music I love, since there are no large local populations to perform to. I recall a time back in about '97 when I posted a message here at Mudcat wishing that we could actually hear each other's voices singing. The response was that there was no way - audio files being too big (at least at that time).

Now the internet is losing many sites because they cannot be profitable enough to stay online. I'm not sure about the outcome of every tactic that mp3.com has chosen to try to remain solvent, but I have found that of all the places I've listed my music, it is still the best vehicle to get it to people whom it "touches, heals, excites and is a friend to".

I tried to listen to The Lawsuit on John's page, but got an error message when trying to stream it. Usually I can save a file and listen on Real Audio or SoundJam. Anyone else able to play it? http://www.mp3.com/JohnBond CLICK

Finally got it to work on Real Audio by trying it a different way --- REALLY enjoyed the song and the singing, John. whilst the lawyer kept a milking of the cow, cow cow.... I'll add it to one of the Mudcat stations.

So, if I recite "Toast" at our session, with my son present, do you think I'll shame him forever? Parents are a constant embarrassment to their teenagers.

John's been embarassing Simon (my son) and me (from the last line) for the last 8 years - toast always goes down well at festivals etc..... and we're still searching for the origins of the lawsuit - only other person known to have recorded it was John's Mother!

I've got loads of new stations, so if any mudcatters want to have their song plays on them, please email me via my page at www.mp3.com/Mad_Rush and I'll sort it.

the station thing is a nightmare of sorting, so if you make good music, I would love you to suggest some of your stuff to me.

PLEASE NOTE!

I have ones for Welsh, Irish, Scottish & English, 'Celtic' Best Women in Folk, (Best Men in folk is nearly full) english folk excellence, Ghosts/legends, Celtic Nations, etc...

I need to know, proposed song title/s, genre, style of song, male or female singer, or group, whether harmony etc...

So please email me via the contact link at www.mp3.com/Mad_Rush

Cheers

Deni

AliUK, do you mean you want to save songs you've found on mp3.com (download) or create a page of your own music on mp3.com (upload)?

Additional songs I added to my page before Christmas:
She Lived Beside The Anner
The Foggy Dew (A Wan Cloud)

AliUK, you can sign up as a new artist at mp3.com and get a page for free, and then it is just a matter of following the instructions on the site to upload mp3 sound files and customize the way your page looks. It probably isn't worth paying for the extra service unless you expect to get alot of traffic. Start out with the free page. There are instructions at www.mp3.com. If you run into a specific problem, one of us who has gone through the routine can probably help you.

damn, I never seem to have time to update my mp3 site...or get to the mudcat much.

It's all because they strictly forbade us from surfing at work...the blue meany Maoists at Bell Sympatico...where I am also strictly forbidden to post a message on any web site or chat room stating that I am a help-desk technician for Bell Sympatico.

Oh, I didn't say that did I?

There you go, Chris. Sounds good. I am listening to the first track on your page right now.

I am about to reach 8,000 plays on my mp3 page. If anyone wants to help put it over 8,000, I'd appreciate it.

Not quite mp3.com ... but I've recently had an mp3 of mine placed on The Mandolin Cafe.

It's the track by Aidan Crossey - my name in the real world - called "Gerry Crossey's Tune and Gerry Crossey's Hornpipe" - a set of tunes named in honour of my late da, RIP.

The track can be accessed here.

Further info on this and other of my original tunes can be accessed here.

Let's know what you think!
