Poll Questions

How do you discover new music?

I'm online for a large part of the day, mainly because of the work I do as a Web Developer. I find great new music just by surfing online and reading forums and blogs. I don't spend time at record stores like I used to when I was a DJ. Back then, I would spend hours digging through vinyl. Now, I spend hours surfing through pages.

How do you discover new music? Radio, friends, online, record stores?

Do You Care About DRM (Digital Rights Management) In Music?

Since I started making music back in 2001, I have been following the whole 'DRM and music' discussion. This topic still draws out a lot of different opinions. The opinions vary based on many different factors, but the overall feeling I get when discussing this topic with friends in the music industry is that it is a good idea, but it has been terribly implemented. 

What do you think? Is DRM in music wrong? Is it even a problem at all? Would you buy DRM (or 'copy protected') music?

Does Sound Quality Matter To You?

As a producer, musician, beatmaker, whatever-you-want-to-call-me, I hear a lot more than my friends who are not into really listening to music as I am. Let me explain...

When I'm with friends or my wife and we are just chillin', listening to music, vibin' off some of the tracks we grew up listening to, I might point out something in a familiar song that I think really sets the track apart. I forget that my friends (especially my wife) don't really listen to music the way I do as a producer - disecting the track and even listening to parts while blocking out others, etc. Most of the time, they just don't hear what I'm talking about, no matter how many times I rewind the track.

Anyway, sound quality matters to me, obviously, because the better the quality, the more I am able to hear and enjoy. I have learned to appreciate the fact that other people get enjoyment out of music in totally different ways. Sound quality is not a big deal for many of my friends. My wife will jam to a song playing on a radio station full of static, just as hard as if it was playing with pristine quality.

What about you? Is sound quality a factor, would you pay more for higher quality downloads or subscriptions?

Do You Subscribe To A Music Subscription Service?

Music is everywhere. I was just thinking about how much we are saturated with music everyday. Almost every commercial/advertisement has music in it. I was on the metro (subway) yesterday and it hit me...Even the warning about the doors closing has a little chime before the vocal warning.

What Music Media Format Do You Prefer?

Do you buy CDs? Or do you get most of your music online through MP3 downloads? I know there are some producers and beatmakers out there who still prefer digging in the crates for the best vinyl (records).

What do you prefer?
