Facebook to ban bands from sharing their music?

From the 1st of October, you will not be able to share your music on Facebook. You could also have your band page deleted and banned. That’s according to an article by Loudwire published yesterday Sept 12, 2020. It goes on to say that “Facebook is taking steps to limit the ability of bands to promote videos that will “create a music listening experience for yourself or for others”. Understandably many musicians were angered by this and worried that their Facebook pages would be rendered useless. But the truth is that this is not the case. Facebook are targeting users who post unauthorised copyright content and in an interview with reknowned music magazine NME they moved quickly to clarify their intentions. The rules have also been in place for 2 years and are meant to “balance our commitment to supporting musical expression on our platforms with also ensuring we uphold our agreements with rights holders, which remains unchanged.” So relax everyone Facebook is not banning music nor are they going to delete band pages for sharing bands own music.

He is one of our favourite CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) artists. He is classically trained and also a music therapist. The song “Requiem Aeternam” is from the album The Cry. It is a powerful prayer from the perspective of ‘suffering children’. The song features the Winchester Cathedral Choir and Natasha Gorlee. This is a powerful song and the choir and strings complement Adrian and Natasha in a beautiful and compelling manner. For more information please check out his website. https://www.adrian-snell.com

Make Your Own Digital Sound Mixing Console

Today we have a plethora of live mixers, digital and analogue, from the affordable to the super expensive. You can get them from under $100 or if you wish you can spend over $100,000. The Behringer X32 was a game changer and has sold thousands upon thousands of units since its launch in 2012. The 18 channel digital mixer, the Behringer XR18 costs only $448.00 USD, plus the cost of an iPad or tablet to control it. In light of this we are fascinated by Make Your Own Sound’s series on building your own digital console system, using your own hardware (Computer, Audio Interface & controller) and software (they recommend RML Labs SAC). Martin gives us a set of detailed and clear tutorials and we recommend this as a must watch series. Learn how to mix and match your favourite hardware, optimise your PC and get to grips with the SAC software.

richard hawley – DARLIN’

Richard Hawley’s song Darlin is one of those songs that instantly grabs your attention. Partially because of his warm soothing dulcet tones and also the beautiful guitar and bass lines that transports you from the hustle and bustle of modern life and into a world where nothing really matters for 3 mins. It appears on the album Lowedges released in 2003.

Making music with one synth

We love the channel Once Upon A Synth and especially love this series wheee he makes a song using just one synth. Now in this day and age we tend to feel that we really need lots of gear and lots of plugins in order to make a record. Truth is that you can use just one synth or one plugin and create all the sounds you need. This video revolves around an analogue synth which is a lot more remarkable. So make your song with what you have already. Also subscribe to his channel as well.

For many years I ignored gimbals as I really had no use for them, having owned a DSLR camera and using the iPad Pro as an extra camera (with its large screen of course). That all changed at Christmas when I bought the Oppo Reno 5g phone and then on Valentine’s Day went and had a look at a gimbal and was blown away by the DJI Mobile 3. This thing is amazing and will make our smartphone film making and music videos look like the real deal. Click on the link and check it out. It is low cost and offers tremendous value for money.
