The Problem Is Obvious – The Law of Averages Meets the Criminal Element!

Illegal software downloads are becoming easier and easier to find. The revenue generated from unlicensed software alone has generated over 2.1 billion in revenue since 2010.

Thieves are scouring the web more now than ever to see what they can steal from people or websites. With billions of people online every day, you can only guess what software companies are doing to defend themselves. Keep reading to find out why cracked downloads are not your only concern! (It’s every second after that if you intend to actually use the software to publish music.)

How Companies Have Been Finding People

Here are a couple of the ways people are getting caught by software companies for cracked software:

They Are Watching Your Videos!

Piracy has become easily accessible with the rise of websites that offer free torrents, and people aren’t taking it seriously enough. Consequently, YouTube has become a playground for the wicked, and apparently, they have been unwillingly exposing themselves. 

Check out this article where software companies are watching your YouTube videos software tutorials, making catching a cracked version easy money.

Software Programmed to “Phone Home”

You’ve most likely heard of cracked software users being sabotaged in courts, social media, and on popular download sites that allow access to pirated software.

Well, some software companies are now encoding a “phone home” feature in the software. This gives the software the ability to phone home if a cracked version is used. When activated, the program will give your information and IP address to the software developer.

 What Does DMCA Protect?  – DMCA Protection

DMCA stands for the Digital Millenium Copyright Act.  This Act is a US copyright law that protects the digital rights of certain copyrighted works accessible by criminalizing the production and dissemination of technologies, devices or services used to control access to certain copyrighted works.

We know that if you aren’t savvy to copyright terms, this could be confusing. Here are some easy examples of what DMCA covers:

  • Making a Copy (Ripping) of A CD or Movie for Yourself
  • Jailbreaking or Unlocking a Phone or Tablet
  • Jailbreaking Gaming Systems (Like PlayStation 3)
  • If Someone Cracks the Code to a Piece of Software
  • Removing DRM to Freely Play Music or Read eBooks
  • Websites Like Megaupload, IsoHunt, and BitTorrent (Usually 90-96% illegal)
  • Bypassing the Restrictions on Gaming Console to Homebrew Games
  • Someone Makes a Copy of a Song or Video that they Should Not Have Had Access to and Shares it Online

Best PC for Music Production – What is the Best PC Processor for Music Production

Apr 05, 2018 by raygpro - 0 Comments
Best PC for Music Production - MAC vs PC

Best PC for Music Production – MAC vs PC

Best PC for Music Production – What is the Best PC Processor for Music Production

 

I get this question all the time… and it’s true. If you don’t have the right kind of PC for music production, you can’t run a DAW without a whole slew of issues.
The best PC for music production will not be hard to find, once you know exactly what to look for. This article will tell you exactly what’s working for me and other audio professionals, so that you will know what to look for when you are ready to buy a PC for your music.

 

What the Pros Say

 

Until a few years back, MACs were considered better than PCs on a power/performance level due to the PowerPC architecture. However, technology is getting more and more “up to par” because manufacturers are beginning to understand that we need our creative freedom.

 

Any moment, the big star can decide to start a career in audio production, hip-hop, or any of the other creative paths, and to be honest… Our computers need to be ready!

 

Therefore, both MAC and PC are being manufactured very closely-knit performance wise to meet our needs.

 

For that reason, despite the small differences we’ve outlined in this article, both PC’s and MACs have huge advocates, die-hard fans, and people that would’t ever switch in the audio industry.

However, there are a couple of factors that can play against you working with a MAC, that are restrictive to audio production.

Pros and Cons Of Each

 

In this next section, we will list the pros and cons of MACs and PCs ftom an audio production perspective, so that you can decide which one is right for you.

Best PC fot Music Production Apple Products

 

Pros of Buying A MAC

 

  • Apple has Been Designing for Creatives Since they Came Out
  • MACs are Made Super Powerful with Ample Performance
  • MACs Are Easy to Use (Once you get used to them)
  • Wide Range of MAC Plugins asd Software (Like Logic Pro)
  • Many Audio Interfaces to Work With

 

Cons of Buying A MAC

 

  • MACs Are More Expensive
  • Not As Many Free Softwares
  • Not As Many Free Audio Plugins

 

Pros of Buying A PC

Cheaper to Buy

Cheaper to Operate In Audio Production

Tons Of Free Softwares and Plugins

Lots of Buying Options

Cons of Buying A PC

None If You Know What to Look For

 

Best PC for Music Production – What to Look For

The most important factors to consider in getting decent latency with your audio interfaces are:

  • Top Quality Motherboard
  • Top Quality RAM
  • A Quality Processor for the Workload

Briefly, an i7 – 4790K CPU @4.00GHz, 8GB RAM, and a 64-bit Operating System will be more than enough to run your software, your analog gear, and all your other parts and components flawlessly and without lagging in most cases.

 

Final Thoughts

Despite what a lot of people believe to be true, the specs I have listed here will get you fully emerged in a multitude of samples, tracks, instruments, vocals, all of that… and only be working about 25% of the CPU. We have had years of experience working with this equipment, and never seen the slightest glitch.

FL Studio 12 Crack – My Personal Experience with Cracked Software

Apr 01, 2018 by raygpro - 0 Comments

FL Studio 12 Crack – Pros and Cons of Using Cracked Software

 

I have worked with music and been around other musicians my whole life. When my content guy asked me if I wanted to add a link to this page to actually download the software, I said that I would never throw all of a musicians work in the garbage.

It’s true.. If you are thinking about downloading a cracked DAW, they are getting better at catching people doing this.

Here is what we know:

Having ANY music available to the public made with a FL studio 12 crack is the worst business decision you could ever make. once you find out that that software companies are using code tracking. This means that when you download the software, they get a signal that contains your IP address.

If you keep reading, we will outline the pros and cons of owning your audio workstation compared to being restricted from your full potential and then scared to use it.

FL Studio 12 Crack Man Standing In Cyber Security Background Just Getting the Big Picture

Getting Caught Could Be Devastating to Your Business

To educated musicians, that’s someone suing you and taking everything that you make and more, in the midst of legal trouble later on down the road.

Listen, let me save you a ton of worry and tell you how you should see your tools in the music business world. You should view your tools as a serious investment that can make or break you. If you haven’t crossed this bridge yet with cracked software, I can tell you ahead of time that it’s pointless.

 

Here Is My Experience with Cracked Software

When I first started out, I was trying to cut corners everywhere I could because I didn’t have any money. I downloaded a cracked FL Studio version, I recorded a song, and I published my song and a few raw beats.

A few days later I started worrying. I knew that you could get caught on the websites downloading these programs, but was there any reason to worry after that?

When I found out that software companies were using methods like; traffic logging, P2P network sniffing, Torrent Honey-pot, and a whole slew of others to find out who downloads and uses cracked software, I did some more research.

FL Studio 12 Crack - Guitar Case Open for Donations

FL Studio 12 Crack – Guitar Case Open for Donations

How Much Can I Get Fined If I Publish a Song Using Cracked Software?

I found out that I could get fined a ton of money if my work became popular because I can’t have full ability to label my beats as mine. I asked a pro at guitar center, and he told me that cracked software has a unique code, and if you publish a song, they will be able to tell that the recording uses pirated software.

In short, this decision could make or break you!

The fines for files and software surrounding DMCA issues are anywhere from $100,000 to $250,000 per file or account, and plus up to 5 years in prison. According to this article on PC World, Burt’s Bees was forced to pay $110,000. I don’t know about you, but most people don’t have this kind of money to throw around.

You should have seen his face.

I was instantly scared that I was going to get caught, so I had to go back and delete everything from offline. Every link, every song, every time I posted on social media…

For Songs Using Crack3ed Software – DMCA Fines

One reason why serious musicians should get the paid version of their DAW is because of the legal issues behind it. Circumvention of Copyright is no joking matter. It is a very serious offense, and if your song hits with a cracked beat, you can end up paying out a lot of money.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 allows the plaintiff to collect up to $2,500 for each offense, and then up to $25,000 for statutory damages.

Not to mention the fact that that the plaintiff will be entitled to collect money from any instances where you sold your work. Which can add up to a whole lot depending on how popular it was. Check out this article on Legal Beagle called The Consequences of DMCA Violation.

If you want the shortest versionhere, SERIOUS musicians just don’t do it.

Cracked Software Doesn’t Weigh Out  – FL Studio 12 Crack

When you weigh out the pros and cons of getting a FL Studio 12 crack or any other cracked DAW versus buying your favorite full version, the pros and cons just won’t add up.

First of all, the cracked software can’t even compare to owning your tools. You get all of the rights and can label and time stamp your tracks that way, and being able to able to work professionally without fear is worth the $60 bucks you pay for the software.

On the brighter side of things, if you buy the full version of a DAW you usually get benefits that are truly worth it. Most full versions offer lifetime support, lifetime upgrades, and the ability to put your name on the beat. This is crucial if you’re serious about your music.

 

 

Pros and Cons – Why You Don’t Want a FL Studio 12 Crack

Here are some pros and cons involved with going with a full paid version instead of a FL studio 12 crack :

Pros

 

  • Ability to Customize and Add Tons of Metadata
  • Unlimited Software Updates
  • You’re 100% Legal
  • Peace of Mind
  • You’re Supporting the Creators of the Software

 

Cons

 

  • It’s Illegal
  • You Could Get Sued
  • Fear of Getting Caught
  • You May Download a Virus

 

Final Thoughts

 

In the end, is going to be your decision what you decide to do. But a lot of musicians agree that spending the money up front and enjoying the benefits is way better than being sued, or even paranoid about the music you’re making. Botton line… It feels way better to own your work and be able to have your name on it. Not to mention that if you have your music stamped you can prove ownership, which gives you rights to claim it.

I hope this information has helped you and helps you stay out of trouble and feeling good about your music!

Best Rap Mics –  Top Recording Microphones Ray G Production

 

I know what you are most likely thinking… Is this guy another affiliate marketer that doesn’t know what the heck he’s talking about? I hate those too… Being in the music business myself, I get tired of running into people that  blog about topics just for the money, or my favorite ones… The ones that don’t even do proper research before they start blabbing about something!!!

 

My name is Ray Gutowski. I’m the owner of Ray G Production. I have been serious about music production since the age of 13. I have worked with artists, rappers, and other producers, and I would never steer you wrong.

 

We are going to go over some of the best microphones for recording in this post. If you are setting up a home studio for the first time, we’ve interviewed with Professionals in the music industry to get you some of the most dynamic mics that money can buy.

 

We will cover both low-end to high-end mics in this article, and we speak with authoritative speakers from recording studios and more! If vocal microphones are your thing, you should find this post very entertaining. please pass it on!

 

This blog will include interviews with music industry professionals regarding the top of the line recording microphones currently available. We will look at which ones are truly the best mics for rap and hip hop artists, and we will also give reviews of the final top 3 best rap mics, as well as the best places to buy them!

 

I sent my content creation team out to interview with some professionals in the industry. I also handpicked some music industry professionals on Quora, just to see if we were all on the same page about this topic.

 

After speaking with professors, recording studios, and other musicians… I set out to summarize this topic.

Best Rap Mics – Interviews with Audio Pros

 

This blog will first include my recommendations from personal experience. Then, we will take an in-depth look at what we found in our interviews with some of the audio industries top authorities.

 

After that, we will give detailed reviews of the top 3 best mics for rap, as well as the best sources to pick them up online.

 

My Professional Experience – What Mic Should I Start With?

 

So, here is where I stand currently on the subject of which mics are top of the line recording microphones for rappers/hip hop artists:

 

I have been through a few different mics in my years as a music producer, but I am currently using a RODE NT1A condenser microphone package. Here are a few reasons why I prefer this model over other models:

 

1. Warm Vocals – Sound waves produced by the RODE NT1A are round and smooth.

 

2. Very Clean Sound – Low distortion. – If any, to be honest.

 

3. No Hiss – You will be amazed at the sound quality of this mic for the price you pay!

 

Now, let’s take a look at what we found out in our interviews.

Best Rap Mics – Interviews with the Pros

 

Interview #1

Guitar Center

Audio Equipment Technician

 

We were lucky enough to get an interview with one of Guitar Center in Austin‘s pro audio technicians. What he had to say was pretty consistent with the rest of the comments you will see just beneath this section from the poll we took on Quora.

 

The audio technician stated that you absolutely must have a condenser microphone for rap vocals. He stated that it is an absolute necessity that you get a mic that requires power. (Generally 48 volts. Also known as phantom power,)

 

After that, he stated that your decision is mainly going to be based on price most likely, and that good sound in today’s market, doesn’t have to break the bank. The technician pointed out several microphones as viable candidates.

 

On the lower end, he recommended the AKG P420, which you can get for $119.00 at the Guitar Center, or the or the RODE NT1A for a few bucks more.

 

These are both very good mics, especially if you are setting up a home studio and you don’t have a lot of money.

 

The technician also stated that the RODE NT1A is a great starter mic, and that in his opinion, it has a very clean sound for it’s price point.

 

On the higher end, his top recommendation for the best rap mics was, (and you can probably guess this one…) the Neumann U87 Ai Shockmount Set Z Microphone with Box.

 

This is a $3600 dollar mic though, and not everyone can afford that much. (The tech joked that theirs was $500 less because they lost the wooden box for it, so you may find some variations in the price if you shop around.)

 

The audio tech at Guitar Center was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of audio production. He stated that for a mid range mic, he really enjoys the AKG C414. He stated that it does well with hip hop and rap vocals because it handles the p’s and b’s very well, which tend to be much harder in those styles of singing.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The AKG C414 is better for rap and hip hop, while the XL2 is specifically for singers. (see the middle video below that also references this.)

 

We also got some recommendations for headphones, and other home audio equipment while we were at the guitar center, which we will be blogging about very soon… So check back with us for those!

 

Interview #2

An Intern at

5th Street Studios in Austin

 

My friend/content strategist set out this past Saturday to try to get  a spur-of-the-moment interview with one of the producers at 5th Street Studios in Austin. Here is what he came back with:

 

He was able to speak with an intern at 5th Street Studios in downtown Austin. The intern happily agreed to answer a couple of questions for our blog, provided we didn’t mention his name or say that he was one of the producers. Here’s what the studio intern had to say:

 

Question: Which models would you say are the best mics for rap?

 

Answer: “Personally, I believe that the Langevin line makes some of the best mics for vocals. That’s from my own experience.” (Please note that I left Langevin mics out of this post, because they are so hard to find new.) “Another great mic that won’t let you down is the Blue Baby Bottle.”

 

We didn’t get to speak to this intern very long, because he had to go back inside the studio, but he did recommend a couple of very good mics. However,  for all sakes and purposes, not all of the mics mentioned in this article will be included in the top three at the bottom of this post… I did manage to get a brief review of the Blue Baby Bottle mic though, just out of sheer curiosity. Here is what I was able to find out about the Blue Baby Bottle:

 

 

Our Hand-Picked Quora Poll – More Interviews with Pros

 

We started a thread on Quora about the best microphones for rappers. We hand picked the music professionals that we thought were most qualified to answer our question.

 

This is what we found out:

 

We spoke with Steven Cron,Sound Engineer at All Microphone (2015-present) and he stated, “A great modern mic is the Sony C800G that is used by a lot of the Aftermath artists such as Eminem and Dr. Dre. But this is a really expensive option that most people can’t afford.” (Right at 10 GRAND!)

 

Mr. Cron went on to explain that some of our famous rappers, like Tupac and Jay Z have used the Neumann U87 and loved it, but again, the Neumann is a bit on the pricey end.

 

We also hooked up with Juan Maria Solare University of Bremen. (2002-present)

 

Here is what Mr. Bremens recommendations were:

 

Shure SM57-LC Cardioid Dynamic Microphone

 

Mr Bremen stated that the Shure SM 57 – LC. is “virtually indestructible.” He went on some more stating that this mic is perfect for harder vocals where you’re screaming a lot, and it can take a beating and keep on functioning properly.

 

Mr. Bremen was also able to recommend the Neumann TLM 102 MT Condenser Microphone, which he said was fit for rap vocals due to it’s very high sound pressure level. (SPL)

 

Mr. Bremen went on to give us one more recommendation which,  (not to my surprise) was the Rode NT1A Vocal Condenser Microphone. He stated, much like myself,  that he recommended it for its extremely low self noise levels, making it the ideal mic to RECORD rap vocals.

 

The Results

Top 3 Best Mics for Rap

 

I picked three top of the line recording microphones partially from personal experience with microphones, and partially because of the reviews, interviews, and other research we did on the topic.

 

We took into account a number of things like price, availability, customer feedback, and more. We also found some very good review videos on each one. So, as they say at the Academy Awards… Then envelope please!!!

 

#1 – The Neumann U 87

 

The iconic Neuman U87 is the best field effect transistor (FET) mic currently available on the market. It has been the go-to mic for musicians since it’s debut since 1967, and it it is said by every musician that experiences it first hand to have superior levels of performance.

 

Smooth as silk and clear as a bell, with deep, rich tones and amazing versatility, the Neumann U87 is the envy of the recording industry. Check out some of the features on this bad boy!

 

  • A Large Diaphragm Mic that is Versatile
  • Pressure Gradient Transducer
  • Ideal for Almost Every Recording Situation
  • Omni, Cardoid, and Figure 8 (3 dimensional) – This makes the U87 ideal for duets and collaborations!
  • Switchable 10 db Pre-Attenuation
  • Switchable Low Frequency Roll-Off

 

The Neumann U87 is IT. Again if you have the money, it is a must have, but if you don’t, you can find a ton of mics that will do the trick for your vocals without breaking you.

 

Bottom line… The Neumann U87 is a must have if you have the extra money, and from the press it gets online… The quality will make up for every penny!

 

 

#2 – AKG C414 XLS

 

Arguably the best microphone made by AKG, the C414 XLS out does it’s predecessor (the C12) quite a bit. With discarding transformers and sprouting LEDs, users of the C414 XLS are saying that it is basically the same mic as the C12, but with a nice grip of improvements!

 

The C414 has a total of 15 improvements cited by AKG, with some performance affecting and some simply cosmetic. According to some of the reviews we read… The XLS will deliver accuracy that will leave you amazed, and a natural, smooth sound that will melt your senses. Here are just SOME of the features:

 

  • Maintains the Same Basic Look of the C414 B – ULS (and has since 1971)
  • Engineered for Neutral Sound and High Linearity
  • Nine Selectable Polar Patterns
  • Three Different Switchable Bass Cut Filters
  • Overload Warning with Audio Peak Hold LED

 

The AKG C414  boasts all of the needed features to make it ideal for most any application you will need it for in recording vocals. The AKG C414 XLS comes highly recommended as a mid-priced option, and from the feedback we got between YouTube and customer reviews, there’s no question of the quality of the C414 when it comes to performance.

 

#3 – RODE NT1A

 

Recommended by beginners and professionals all over the world, the RODE NT1A is I must have for beginners. Priced on the low end, the RODE NT1A  sounds absolutely amazing. I have worked with one for years, and this is your best bet if you are working on a budget, and don’t have $1,000 to drop on a mic. Here are the features:

 

  • Excellent Quality Engineering
  • Ample Shock Mount and Pop Filter
  • Very Low Noise
  • 10 Year Warranty (Register on the website!)

 

Often referred to as the world’s quietest studio mic, the RODE NT1A has a low signal to noise ratio, and an amazing neutral sound. As I stated before the waves from the NT1A are round and warm, with basically no hiss whatsoever. The cardioid polar pattern blocks out the extra noise and leaves you feeling unrestricted as you drop your bars, instead of cheaper mics that make you feel like you have to cradle them and pay perfect attention to get a good sound.

 

 

Final Thoughts

 

The RODE NT1A is trusted by rappers and singers in over 113 countries. It is not the best condenser mic out there… But we found the feedback pretty unanimous… For a budget mic that won’t cost you an arm and a leg, the RODE NT1A will defiantly get the job done. (And then some!)

 

If you have the extra money, you can go with the Neumann U87, and if you want a good middle-of-the-road mic as far as price goes… You can grab the AKG C414 XLS or a little over $1,000.

 

To be honest, all of the mics mentioned in this post make exceptional microphones for beginners and experts, with compliments and recommendations from music professionals across the board. Bottom line… If you don’t have a huge chunk of change, I would go with the RODE NT1A, as I still use it, and don’t plan on switching.

 

You can find all of these mics, and other top of the line recording microphones at Guitar Center, as well as on Amazon and eBay. You may find good used ones on Reverb.com, or other online marketplaces for musicians.

 

We hope our research and expertise benefits your search for the best rap mics! Please share this post if you believe that this info could benefit others! We love the attention! Your comments are always welcome also! Take care!

Music Modernization Act of 2018 – Sign the Petition Here – Ray G Production

Music Modernization Act of 2018 – Sign the Petition Here – Ray G Production

 

Thank you for clicking our Music Modernization Act of 2018 blog! The reason we decided to post about this topic, is because songwriters have been neglected for some time now.
The problem is that the royalty collection rates set in place 20 years ago governing royalty collection have not been recently updated to keep up with technology. What this is causing, is collected royalties to not be correct with the amount of data being streamed and sold.
