Scott R. Garrigus' DigiFreq(TM) - Let the World Hear Your Music
ISSN: 1531-6505; Issue 27
Music technology downloads, news, articles, reviews, tips and tutorials for home recording and professional musicians. Over 19,000 readers can't be wrong!

"If you are a Sonar user then this book (Sonar 5 Power!) is as essential as all the other gear in your studio. If you are thinking about making the jump from Pro Tools or Cubase to Sonar for its deeper feature set, this book will give you a guided tour of not only the application but also the superb plug-ins and soft synths that ship with it. Since I've had this book I've used it as a reference during every single Sonar project I've completed." - Greg Keenan

Scott's Notes - Musicians, Let the World Hear Your Music

Garrigus.com and DigiFreq announced that together they are launching the new DigiFreq Music Promotion service for independent musicians. This new service aims to help independent musicians gain some added exposure for their work. Hosted via the DigiFreq web site, the service provides one section for music listening and another for music submissions.

Music lovers looking for something beyond the stale selections provided by many radio stations today, can find a wide variety of new, independent music in the listening section of the DigiFreq web site. A wide range of genres is represented here, including Alternative, Blues, Country, Rock, Pop, Jazz, Latin, R&B, Hip-Hop/Rap, Electronic, New Age, and more. A list of titles (more being added daily) is available at:

Musicians wanting to get their music listed on the DigiFreq site can do so by filling out a simple submission form. Site submissions are free and are processed on a first come, first served basis. The only requirement is that the title being submitted must be available for sale from either Amazon.com or CDBaby.com. Once a submission is processed, it is listed in the music section of the site, complete with a detail page and Listen To links.

In addition to being published on the DigiFreq web site, musicians can upgrade their submission and get their music listed in the DigiFreq newsletter for a small fee. A listing in the newsletter provides a huge amount of exposure given that the newsletter currently goes out to over 19,000+ readers. Plus, past newsletter issues are archived on the site so that new readers are exposed to past music listings as well.

Musicians can submit their music to DigiFreq by going to:

DFreqFINISH - It's All About the Music!

Over the years I've collected a fair amount of music technology products. I've got a decent home studio with a nice audio PC, some monitors (speakers), MIDI controller, a couple of MIDI keyboards, and even some outboard effects and synth gear. Plus, I've got a ton of software. I could probably cook up just about anything I wanted in terms of audio, but I think sometimes we forget that it's really about the music, not the toys.

So here's a reminder for you to take some time to reflect and step away from the toys for a while and just create. Take a little time to listen to what some of your fellow musicians are doing over in the Music section of DigiFreq:

And when you're ready and have your own stuff out there for the world to hear, submit it to us and we'll help you spread the word:

In the meantime, please keep spreading the word about DigiFreq. I really appreciate all your help and support!
