Entry #1

The Old DavidOrr.net brought back (but Diatonic Studios remains)!

2007-08-14 16:58:17 by DavidOrr

First off, first post since the redesign of Newgrounds. I have no idea how many people are actually going to read my blog here, but if you're interested in following me and my work, visit DavidOrr.net for the newest music and news. Also, there are a few pieces on there that Newgrounds has never seen!

Now, without further ado, here is the scoop on the DavidOrr.net website, taken directly from the website.

Yes, Davidorr.net now redirects users to the actual Davidorr.net, and not DiatonicStudios.com. I am still working on the DS project, and hope to get that off the ground. But for now, I've gotten a lot of requests to bring this back, so here it is! You can still get to the Diatonic Studios page by typing in www.diatonicstudios.com into your browser.

If you haven't noticed, this page has gotten seriously spammed (I've got over 11,000 comments "in moderation", and many more actually displayed on the site). To help cut back on spam, I've required all posters to register. It only takes a moment, and I'd love to hear your feedback on the site, my music, and whatever else is on your mind.

I've added a few new pieces to the site mp3 player, and will be adding those same ones to the stand alone player when time permits. Until then, enjoy the music!

Feel free to let me know what you think!

David we have to get that site off the ground >:'(

DavidOrr responds:

We will get the site off the ground- we just have to get some more people to join the team and we'll be all set. Until then there isn't too much more we can do :(

Hi, David!

I would like to know some things.
Tell me, what is diatonicstudios.com, and what is its purpose?

DavidOrr responds:

Hey Deflektor!

Diatonic Studios is a project I'm working on that will hosts a team of high-quality musicians who write music for the site. The purpose of the music is for use in any flash production. It's much like the Audio Portal on Newgrounds, except the idea is to keep the quality of the content at a premium.

Right now the only compensation offered to the artists in publicity, but hopefully when the site picks up momentum again I can provide a pay-per-piece type of compensation. There was a point where the site was bringing in enough money to support a small team of artists, assuming roughly 2 submissions were submitted a week and, they were paid $50 per piece. Unfortunately, the ad revenue is down (although it is starting to pick up again now that I have re-launched my old site). Until I get a steady income from the site, and a slightly more substancial financial reserve, I won't be able to pay artists.

So, long story short, the site is a " Community-based musical database that offers independent multimedia producers royalty-free musical loops, full-length songs, and sounds".
