I think Music Xray itself offers numerous opportunities that are legitimate, so it's a great vehicle by which to place your music. I echo the comments in the book in saying that the better job we as artists do in submitting/targeting quality material, the longer music industry professionals will continue to be open to receiving material through this channel.
The book does a great job in explaining the ins-and-outs of Music Xray. I learned several new things myself and I'm sure I'll will refer to it often!
Alas, along comes Norman Dolph with his new book Maximizing Music Xray: Pitch Your Songs Directly To Music Industry Pros to save the day. The author shares his own experiential awareness and opinions of using Music Xray from the viewpoint of being an active user, which should be music to all of our ears, and it is indeed. Norman differentiates the different categories MXR offers songwriters to submit their work to (categories that in my opinion have become more difficult to decipher since MXR's latest redesign of the site), and shares the likelihood of which categories songwriters are most likely to see results from. MXR offers "Diagnostics" for songs submitted, which should provide valuable information for songwriters, and indeed it does...to a certain extent. Dolph questions and discounts certain "Diagnostics" which in all fairness MXR owner Michael says are still be worked out; Dolph's comments on areas like "The Needle" told this user that he wasn't missing something here after all, and indeed this info is amiss.
The book's breakdown of completing uploads, formatting correctly, and increasing your submission odds by completing various optional categories is valuable info.Read more ›
