Comment on Superior Singing Method by MusicMan http://www.jabberdi.com/3427/superior-singing-method#comment-155 Thu, 24 Jul 2014 13:22:49 +0000 http://www.jabberdi.com/?p=3427#comment-155 Hi Nils,
I do have a recording of my voice before I started SSM… However, I’m not sure I would ever want to publish it. SSM helped me a ton considering I really could not sing at all, and I have now moved on to, Elite Singing Techniques p1. I will publish a full user review of EST when I have completed the course.

I’m still using SSM everyday in my practice routines; it’s not something that you can use for a few weeks then one morning wake up sounding like a superstar. As I have found out learning to sing takes time and a lot of dedication.

What I did before I spent money on SSM was to try these free singing lessons provided by Aaron. I also took one paid lesson at my local music school to ascertain if I had any hope of learning.

I got some positive feed back from that, also a lot of negative stuff. The positive was that there was hope but no quick shortcuts to the big stage…

They recommended minimum of 4 to five lessons a week for three months to begin with.
That’s when I decided to give SSM ago.

My honest opinion would be if you can afford to take face to face lessons with a vocal coach, then do that. (I’m certain that you would get faster results) if not SSM is a good alternative. It’s working for me, but dedication is essential for results.

What I can tell you is:
Before my vocals were tight, I mumbled my words when singing. No voice projection at all, my tone was bad, and I sounded crap and when I did try to project my voice and sing louder I sounded even more terrible.

After near two years of what I would consider working on my own and learning to sing with the help of SSM… and now EST, I have learned how to use all of my body’s resonators, not just my vocal chords.

I won’t lie to you, learning to sing is not just belting out lyrics and singing in tune. It’s about learning how to control your body, all of your resonators and required muscles to gain a great voice and sound your best.

Not knowing what your artists have sold and what they should be paid is an awful
situation to find yourself in.

Is there no way of forwarding them a good will payment until you have this situation sorted out?

As regards interviewing them for the article, no I did not… However, I did a lot of research on them and confirmed they are a registered company operating in the U.K.
However, right now may be it’s time to do just that… I’m away all next week, but soon as I get back.
I will contact them again in regard to getting an interview with them.

Keep me updated on how things progress with your ongoing problems you are experiencing with DittoMusic
support.

Would be interesting as I’m not good at singing at all and want to know if it’s worth trying…

Comment on DittoMusic Review Get your Music Distributed to all Digital Stores by Riu Sodebayashi http://www.jabberdi.com/5011/dittomusic-review#comment-152 Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:17:56 +0000 http://www.jabberdi.com/?p=5011#comment-152 Hi Steve,

Thank you for your reply and for sending a request to Dittomusic.

I understand that when one part in the well-oiled machine stops working, it is inevitable that there is going to be a knock-on effect. Therefore, it is wise to have a backup plan as well as financial backup for these situations, which we do.

However, the biggest issue here is that artists know their music is being sold but they are not seeing any payment. Because of that, they feel we are a scam. Moreover, although we have financial backup, we do not know how much we should pay artists as we do not even know the value of the sales – no report, no nothing. Simply a record that states “Track A has been sold more than track B. Track C has been sold more than track A”

Riu

P.S.
Did you interview DIttomusic personally for this article?

Sorry to hear you have been let down by Dittomusic…
However, like all businesses when one part in the well-oiled machine stops working, it is inevitable that there is going to be a knock-on effect.

I’m not making excuses for them, and if you feel their support was lacking, then they need to rectify this and put things right without any delay.

Steve,
P.S
I have sent a request and asked Dittomusic to respond to your comments.

We work with various electronic music artists. I have released our artists’ music with them 3 times and have had problems in all occasions.

Dittomusic’s customer service and support is terrible.

Sometimes, releases were “lost”. I understand that third parties are involved so problems may occur out of their control and so, have been tolerant – until the following happened.

I have concrete evidence that my label’s music has been sold on Beatport as Beatport has label charts. Songs only appear in the label charts if people buy music. However, I had no record of the sales on Dittomusic’s sales report regarding Beatport.

I inquired customer support about this and for 3 weeks they kept on saying they would follow up with their “Accounts” department.

I only got a concrete reply after threatening them to go through legal means, change distributors and expose them as a fraud. According to them, Dittomusic has been without a Finance manager for 3 months, therefore haven’t been able to report sales correctly.
3 months??? How can they claim to be a reputable company with this kind of operation?

At the moment, I am waiting for Dittomusic to “login to the sales system and collect the data manually”.

Due to Dittomusic’s lack of professionalism, the label’s reputation is being considerably damaged as artists are demanding payment and we have not been able to do so.

Dittomusic needs to improve the quality of their service and pay their clients what they owe.

My personal opinion, as of now, is that Ditomusic is a fraud, a scam, until they have paid what they owe.

Contact me if you want me to send you the email communications I had with Dittomusic regarding this issue below.

I will also be happy to discuss more issues that I’ve had so feel free to contact me.

Finally, feel free to contact me if you have had similar problems with Dittomusic.

Riu
