First one. Few days ago, but the point still stands.

Especially when you mark down the price for most things, you can get the bare essentials for under $1000 a song. My local music scene has plenty of studios that give pretty decent quality recordings, and they usually charge only about $20 an hour. Mastering can cost anywhere from $90-400, depending on where you go(I live in Miami, I like to go for cheaper alternatives since the big deal studios here are expensive), and then duplication fees will usually cost no more than 60 cents a disc, and maybe another 50 cents for casing. It's not that expensive to release albums. I could easily write a 6 song EP for under $1500(without mastering, sadly) and be able to release over 1000 copies as an independent artist. Sell them for $2 an EP and you still make profit.


Just curious - are you able to make a living off of that?

Well, obviously not for $2 an EP, but as far as I know most independent musicians rely on a combination of touring, merchandise and EP sales.

There was this website(now it is renovated so I really cannot cite the source now), that explained this in a better way than I could. In order to make a living off of music, you'd have to have much more dedication than I personally have, and you would have to make many, many sacrifices. You won't be making the hundreds of thousands of dollars that the Top 40 Artists make, but enough to get by probably.

I'm too lazy to read through the past three pages(I've read the first two, pardon me. I need to go to sleep soon, so I don't have time to read it all.), but I guess I'll throw my opinion in.

As a musician, I think pirating is completely fine. Most of the musicians I know actually are pro-piracy. I don't see it as a problem.

The only music I buy is for the local scene, and that is because I know 100% of the profit will go to them. With most other major labels, the artist relies on merchandise and ticket sales. And with the openness of piracy, your music is put out more. More people listen to your music, and as a result, will go to your concerts and buy your merch. To me, pirating is one of the greatest things to have come to independent artists, but it might be one of the worst things to come to major labels.

tl;dr - I support piracy.

In Topic: Females playing RS?

15 March 2011 - 04:23 PM

I've been a female on RuneScape since 2007(I am a male). Never had a problem. Granted, I quit from mid-2008 to late 2010, but I've still never had a problem with it. I tell people I'm male if they ask me, never had any problems with that either. Some people actually don't suspect I'm a male because I guess I speak sort of in a feminine matter?
