Worldwide audience

In the last month Download2MP3 was reached from 169 countries with the remaining gaps being a few countries in North Africa.

These days most visits are going direct to one of the big name composer pages although the ragtime category is holding it's own.

The last twelve months or so have been a dry patch interms of producing more recordings but I'm pleased to report that the technical issues which been related to various software upgrades.

I have been using Cubase for at least 25 years not on an Atari but an Acorn with an external roaland Sound Canvas synthesiser which was purchased in London's Tin Pan Alley. Some of the steps that have got us to 10.5 have been very disconcerting but the truth is that there is nothing to campare with it for the work that I do.

I have also acquired some exciting new instruments in the last few months to augment the stalwarts which saw this site get underway.

So the Covid19 Lockdown is giving me the time to produce more recordings which I hope to publish soon.

Introducing Children To Music… Strategies For Success

While we struggle to restore full menu fuctionality We thought you'd like to hear about a more uplifting topic: Introducing Children To Music - Strategies For Success I've heard a million parents lament the fact that they didn'’t get their children interested in music sooner. There are also hundreds of adults out there that wish they had learned how to play an instrument when they were younger. Studies actually support the idea that music stimulates certain brain connections and can actually help children grow smarter! Music also provides an invaluable outlet for safe expression of feelings and emotions, and can also serve as an important learning tool throughout your children's lives! Music helps educate in many ways, by developing children'’s memory skills and nourishing their spirit. Now, some children are a bit resistant to music at first, but you can easily find ways to encourage them to enjoy music in many different forms early in life. You need to si

Bigdaddy's in the Wings

Friday's customer mystery is unresolved ... But meanwhile, word on the SEO street is that, the next major re-index on Google, code name Bigdaddy, is being prepared and a few of our keywords seem to be in play. Since Jagger we have already seen our most competitive keywords drift back into effective obscurity but the rest seem pretty secure at the moment. It looks as if this could cause some further erosion but nothing too exciting. Our sub-menu problem isn't helping people to move around the site so we must get to the bottom of it. The response from support hasn't been too helpful so far but we shall persist. The production software problem is also proving intractable - technology is great when it works but more than a tad frustrating when it don't.

New Music

It is time we changed our tack and came up with some new recordings perhaps in a slightly different style to see if we can generate interest that way. The main obstacle at the moment is our kit. The software for our sophisticated Creamware sound card is not working properly with our Cubase sequencing and recording application. Specifically this means restricted access to final mastering functionality as we put the mixes to bed. On the instrumentation front we have some new presets for the Moog that we'd like to try - provided they don't pull the processor over and we have some Symphonic movements on the stocks that could be fun. So this calls for another attempt to get a response from their support organisation. In the meantime the weather here in London is sunny and warm at last, our broadband reasonably steady and the visitors are coming into the site in reasonable numbers but that's as far as it goes. Time for the new weekly composer now - Saint Saens I think.
