Cover Art Factory

Have Cover Art Factory design your, erm … cover art. Upload a pic and let them do the rest. In a nutshell.

What sounds like a cool thing might be one step more into the “automated art” direction, just like “automated audio mastering”. I’m very suspicious about all this, but in this case here I think it’s better to have it done nicely instead of all those cheesy, shit looking “artworks” I’m seeing every day. Not even mentioning the myriads of stolen photography.

Worth a try, me thinks. Well, not for me (or my label), but I guess for a lot of you folks this could come in handy.

ocenaudio – FREE, easy, fast and powerful audio editor

ocenaudio is a cross-platform, easy to use, fast and functional audio editor. It is the ideal software for people who need to edit and analyze audio files without complications. ocenaudio also has powerful features that will please more advanced users.

That’s right. This little piece of open software is actually a full-featured audio editing monster. And it even looks sexy.

More features:

  • Real-time preview of effects
  • Cross-platform support (Mac, Windows, Linux, and all in 32 or 64 bit!)
  • Multi-selection for delicate editions
  • Efficient editing of large files (very important for looong DJ sets!)
  • Fully featured spectrogram
  • VST support!

As a matter of fact, it even has features the mighty Steinberg Wavelab hasn’t. Totally love it. 🙂

Russell Brand vs. Sean Hannity (and the German Equivalent)

We all should love Russell Brand for this masterpiece in TV history.

This is how it started:

This is how it continued:

And if you ask me, I stay tuned for follow-ups. 😀

One more thing … as with everything regarding the US, we have a German version of Sean Hannity as well. His name is Michel Friedman (you should really click this link, trust me, you’ll be surprised!). With this short video clip you will clearly understand what I’m talking about:

Unfortunately, Germany is missing a version of Russell Brand. Friedman is able to pollute the German world of media and TV in particular, and no one stops him.

P.S.: This post doesn’t reflect my personal opinions about the Israel/Palestine conflict. Its entire purpose is to pillory a disrespectful discussion culture. Also, I’m no sympathizing with any person involved, neither personally nor politically, apart from Russell Brand.

As you might already know, we’re working with the label management system, distribution and promo system of Label Worx. Label Worx offers PromoBox, which is basically the option to dropbox (and other cloud storage services!) all promos you’re interested in. This makes it way easier to manage your promo downloads.

On top of this is the really excellent iOS app for PromoBox! Listen to promos wherever you are, we’d say the mobile app is even more convenient than the web app.

PromoBox is FREE to use but in order to register you must have already received a Promo Campaign from us via the Label Worx system. So, if you’re interested in receiving our promos, drop us a message!

Things That Don’t Actually Make You A Better DJ

I thought all has been said about DJing. I was wrong. This is the best article on DJing I have ever read: Things That Don’t Actually Make You A Better DJ | PassionateDJ.com.*

This just FYI: I grew up playing vinyl and switched directly from there to laptop — never had a CDJ phase. Today I play with a laptop, FLOW and Controller. If someone likes to think I’m not a real DJ (anymore), I suggest you give me 2 records, 2 turntables and a mixer, and I show you.
