The interesting people from Lander (Professional Mastering for Music Creators) have a very interesting blog and news letter with good resources and professional tips. Joe Kapela (Thanks Joe!) suggests AKE participants check this rather nice reflection by Scott Parsons on the types of things that should be ready before releasing new music, specially when you are doing “self production” or when you have limited resources.
This sound also very relevant advice to other type of media productions done in AKE. If you apply some of this suggestions let us know what you learned from them.
