<br>Yeah baby.<br><br>I feel like the 30-second sample is a bit misplaced, though. The template seems to take something like 30 seconds into the song, 30-seconds on from there. The problem with that is, that's typically where verse 1 sits, and never gets to the chorus/hook.<br><br>Nyah anyways. You can still hear the full song on the website.<br><br>--<br>http://www.stevenkimband.com/

That's great, Steven. <br><br>I also don't think much of how the 30-second bits are parsed out. I've listened to samples of songs I know really well, and think to myself: "Why the heck did they offer a part of the song that isn't even close to representative of the entire piece?"<br><br>I think it should be up to the artist—or at the very least, the producer—to decide where to snatch the 30 second clip from.<br><br>Just as an example, imagine that you only had the first 30 seconds of the song to decide whether you wanted to buy "Stairway to Heaven", "Freebird," having never heard them before. <br><br>In cases like that, I'd even be more amenable to keeping the 30 seconds format, but having a crossfade in the middle that more accurately portrayed how the song develops. Add a little icon designating that the sample has a crossfade, and things would be much better.<br><br><br><br>

I get paid through CD baby (a distributor), which is the acting label in this arrangement. CD baby actually takes a very small cut of the deal - if you know CD baby you know their culture - and most digital distribution sites kick back a pretty decent part of the dollar. It's all available on public pages - if anyone's interested in some hand-holding for getting your music onto iTunes (or any other DD sources for that matter) just ask me, I'd be happy to help.<br><br>--<br>http://www.stevenkimband.com/
