OK, how have MP3 new band / artists websites helped your recording business?

Are your studio's clients booking time to record music destined DIRECTLY for the web for promo & download?

CD Baby, I Tunes, Napster...

How is this all affecting recording studio business?

Please discusss,

My unsigned clients are keen to get their tracks on hip showcase websites (like in the UK - Karmadownload)

no one has come in to directly record to release on the net... however, there is great power for both sides with such places such as myspace./

over the years, probably starting with IUMA and MP3.com i have made contact with bands all over which have brought me work by networking with them via sites of this nature. i find it to be a great way to see and hear what is going on. if i were a label AnR guy, i would certainly be taking advantage of this to find/hunt new talent down. flip side of it, the ones who are very savvy with the web promotion think there is less and less place for labels to begin with and some seem to do quite well on their own.

just sitting at my computer i can cover a lot of ground that used to be reserved for the touring scene and becoming a part of it [which i still do as well, and meet more people who know people who i know etc]
