    Default Alright guys, would like to know your idea about this innovative idea

    I am a Dutchmen, so don't sue my English.

    During the development of our (= crew) electronic dance music I have been asked several times to offer a service to judge tracks and promos. Due the limited time that a human beiing have, I am not able to provide every single track of well-argued comments. On many online forums people will post their tracks to get reply's / feedback from other community members. Some comments are constructive, some are not.

    Back in Holland, there are loads of new talented producers. Also, internationally, there are many producers with quality tracks. In the past 4 years I have meet a lot of people. The innovative idea behind this concept is the well-argued feedback you'll receive as artist.

    The idea will be: The forum will contain the following people:

    Beginner producer
    Advanced producer
    Reviewers
    Label owners

    Producers will register an account on the forum, and can post their FULL tracks. Their tracks will not be visible for unregistered people. Within their thread, they receive feedback of our reviewers. The reviewers are people who finished a audio-related study, audio-engineer, studio owners and labels. Don't worry about the reviewers, they get their earnings as well. You will be sure that your track will be reviewed and commented as a producer.

    The comments will be constructive, like suggestion of new synths, how to edit their climax step by step, how to mix their final track... Every comment will help the producer to make their track 'release-ready'.

    The label PR people will pick tracks from the forum, if they think the track will be a good one for their label.

    What do you think guys?

    I think that's an awesome idea. It would be a very good opportunity for everyone involved, really.

    Id love to get criticism and help from advanced producers

    First song I made in fruity loops was some Hardstyle too

    But It could use some work (mastering)

    Its a very good idea and would keep people liek myself motivated because starting off producing by yourself is a very hard and daunting task, but thats not to say I dont enjoy it.

    Hardest thing to find is good feedback, there are the 3 types. Those that know nothing about music, those that think they everything but know nothing, and those that do actually know something. This last one is hard to find.

    I find when I give constructive input, people are still defensive... it is their baby. I know in my life where I'm defensive too, sometimes to argumentative amounts and am willing to accept the discussion, but that takes a chunk of acceptance of the critique and credibility of the person doing the critique. There are tracks on Soundcloud that I will still play, but I'm going to work it hard to make it groove, most aren't are really willing to hear all that is missed is make the snare hold it together or fill in the groove with the hi's.

    The key is to finding people that really want to utilize this information. I hear plenty of my mistakes, would love for some one to point out weak points, and be able to build. Most people think they are there already at the next step, a step or three below, each step along the building process. I guess it call it thickskinnedproducer.com

    Generally sounds like a very good idea.

    What I'm really curious about is how you want to pay/compensate the reviewers for their efforts...


    Anyway, there are some more ideas I'd like to share:


    It would be great to not only get reviews from the reviewers, but also from advanced producers/professionals. Audio-engineers may be great to judge the (technical) quality of tracks, but I think it's only people who have been doing this themselves for a long time that can tell you those little tricks of the trade that you don't learn in any university but aquire only through years of hands-on experience.

    I don't know if you have planned something like this, but you may want to introduce some kind of rating system for the tracks if you want the platform to be interesting for A&Rs/label owners. Typically those people have a huge pile of demo tracks to listen to already, so they probably won't be willing to dig through many different tracks to discover the rare hidden gems. If there was some pre-selection, e.g. by the reviewers rating the tracks they listen to, the platform would become much more interesting for label owners, as the tracks that are not ready for release would already have been sorted out.

    I'm on VIP promo lists.

    For example this month I have reviewed 31 e.ps. (Deep House/Tech/Minimal)

    I work for several labels as Mastering Engineer. (I specialise in Quality Electronic Music)

    How will you make money?

    I have a few ideas but I would like to hear how you'd monetize a service like this.

    But I agree with everyone--this is an outstanding idea.
