Exclusivity per item would be great. At the same time, 40% for exclusive stuff isn’t that great, according to another royaltee free sites.

Hi JHunger,

I play guitar, piano and bass a little, but I’m a composer :) I need a professional Electro Guitarist with a professional sound and great technique.

The idea to contact the guys from Augiojungle is great! I think I’ll do this.

It would be great to have a pool of musicians gathered in one specific site dedicated to this purpose, though, so you could listen to all of them, choose and hire from one place.

Hi,

There are lots of freelance guitar, bass and drums players around the world who can record tracks at their home. Probably I’ll need one of those in the near future. Is there some sort of a site or forum where all those freelancers gather and I could choose and hire them? And what is the general price for one 2-3 minutes track per musician nowadays?

Thanks, LaMusique

I have PRS Mira and love it a lot. Connecting it directly via my RME UC (via its own preamps) and processing with Guitar Rig4 + sometimes Impulses of different cabinets.

Do you think I should get a better preamp like Great River or I won’t hear the difference in my electric guitar tone..?

Yes, you just have to get authorization from your university (and a letter from your employer). It’s very straightforward. The office of international affairs at all US universities will take care of this for you.

Technically you can only work for 20 hours a week I think, on a student visa….but who is keeping track of these things ;)

Just make sure you have authorization. You do NOT want to get in trouble with the IRS or DHS or ICE .

Hi Gareth,

This thread is pretty old but the information you gave me is very important to me.

I’m starting my studies this Fall and I’ve already talked with university’s international department and they claim that they cannot allow me using those 20 hours a week for my freelance projects cause this is not an “on campus job”. There is some “CRT” permission but they give it for internships only. So what permission/authorization exactly should I apply for in order to be able to work with my freelance clients from the 1st semester as you did?

I would appreciate your help very much!

Thanks guys for advise. I’d rather listen to someone from comunity then some strangers and if you are confirming the fact it is a good mic for what I’m looking for – I’ll go for that. P.S. – I got myself a mandolin and learned’s few chords so far :-)
You call me a stranger ? :) Sorry that I wrote my message.. Have a nice day, girl.
I think rtofvnt meant that we are part of the community, not the strangers :).

Oops, I think you’re right :)) Sorry, guys.

I’ve used M3 for a long time till I bought AKG 414 :)

M3 – is a workhorse that can record any instrument and even vocals with a good quality and excellent price.

I think the prices for the “Regular license” are very low, the prices for “Extended license” are ok. The average price for track nowadays is 35$ among other successful sites: 20-25$ for regular license and 50-80$ for “Extended license”.

But what hurts are the lowest rates that could possibly be for the composer.

If the composer’s rates were “Ok” (40-50% for non-exclusive author) the sales would be the same (high, compared to other sites) but the composer would earn the normal money. So in my opinion, the rates are more important. Cause again, the prices would be the same, wouldn’t hurt the clients and the composer would earn his fair piece of pie.
