We are now populating our online studio master, music download site ...

If you are a artist, band or label this is a great way of earning money from your studio master files; whether your potential is to sell 100 copies or millions, you will be paid a fair price for each and every download.

If you know an artists, band or label and think they should be selling their music in full studio master format then please ask them to contact us. Our site is now fully functional so you can start earning from your studio files immediately.

The basic criteria:
  • You must provide the Studio Master file (24 Bit),16bit (CD quality) & MP3 (note: 16bit & MP3 are given free with every studio master download). 
  • The music and recording must be of a high standard.
  • You must own the music or legally be authorised to distribute it.
  • There is a one off charge of 1000 Kr (100 uk pounds) for administration including uploading files, photo, text and video material. (This fee is also a disincentive for non-serious applications.)
This international download site means the artist, band or label can actually earn a living from the work they produce and receive a fair price for each and every download. There is the added bonus of international exposure .. why can't you be 'big in Japan'?

The consumer buys with the knowledge that they are supporting the artist directly and that they are receiving the absolute best quality available for that piece of work.

Apply to martin@peoplesandschmidt.com confirming you meet the criteria above and with links to samples of your music and we will take care of the rest. You can also SMS: 0760071281 & I will call you at a convenient time.

While in Ireland ...

I signed a distribution agreement with an exclusive hand crafted guitar manufacturer and I mean hand crafted. No CNC machines used in either the mould or the finished products ... even the intricate carving which can be a simple inscription or as dramatic as dragons on every detail like Alistair done with the worlds most famous guitar for Asian rock god Leehom Wang

What's clear is that it is the work of a genius. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ezb61qlYi9o&list=UUIBu_0e2tTKeunQbb4mmDUA&feature=c4-overview

The following clip shows a rather tamer looking guitar from Alistair, my favourite, the X20-0s artisan acoustic, one of which we received in November.

For Peoples & Schmidt this is a step closer to our passion of music: playing, recording and playback. It's another step in the goal for our shop where you can play an instrument, record it and instantaneously listen back to it in full studio master in one of our 5 demo rooms. It's a unique concept where you can experience the music industry in one shop from the instrument, LIVE music the microphone (the converters) and the playback all in the one shop: all the products in the shop are available to test properly and purchase. It's purely music performance based, using the latest technology and it's incredible fun to work with. We even have a new Studio Master music site launching (oncloud32) so you can buy the finished product - music!

Emerald Guitars was founded and is run by Alistair, a humble yet incredible innovator with some serious talent for the material carbon fibre, craftsmanship (more specifically art/sculpture) and musical instruments. 

This next clip shows the travel guitar X5 which I never played but held in the factory. For serious guitarists that want to take their guitar on a boat, camping or summer house without the fear of damage from damp conditions, this is extremely practicable. I think it will be a studio favourite used for intricate recordings as it's just incredibly clear, neutral (correct) and precise without the problems when miking larger guitars. 

Ironically Alistair leaned His craft in the insanely noisy but exclusive world of Formula 1 boat racing which, is of course at the cutting edge with both design and use of the latest materials.

With the talent and courage to be radically innovative with products that, due to sound improvements created from extraordinary measures, Alistair's guitars look radically different thus run the risk of scaring the traditionalists so it's important they deliver sonically. 

Alistair's success with His products is driven entirely by performance, no matter how different it may look, if it sounds better it goes into the guitar. The radical designs work and most exciting of all He is not afraid to change and improve on designs, actually every improvement He finds is immediately incorporated into the very next guitar. He proudly declares :

''The next guitar I make will be the best one I have ever made''

LINN Klimax Exaxt v's LINN Klimax DS+Kontrol

Even with just a short time for set up in what is a much better room than it looks (a diagonal back wall that seems to resolve any bass issues) it was ''clearly'' apparent that LINN Exakt is a serious improvement.

My conclusion is that it's like when you turn the kitchen fan off and suddenly you are more relaxed, can hear clearer and it's just such relief. The artist starts singing in control and stops screaking.

''Relief from Klimax DS'' ... I never thought I'd be saying that ... what I thought was the best digital source I had ever heard (HiFi or studio) appeared in comparison a bit hard to listen to at high volumes. Exakt is much cleaner, smoother and calmer but it's the timing that really shocks me. Going back to the same track (Mario Biondi) on the Klimax DS, it was almost like the instruments/musicians were ''tripping each other up'' ... out of time ... like the mix was out!!

Everything is relevant and of course the older Klimax system is amazing but the goal posts have really moved! Add the new functions of the Exakt system, HDMi inputs, an amazing A-D, digital transfer to the speakers, room adjustment that really works so the speakers can be tight with the back wall and still sound amazing and hold onto the sound stage ... and one box instead of two and this is really a difficult system to ignore for those with the money to buy it. Less in this case is more ...

High gloss Black or white was a more difficult choice. I've always preferred Piano White or standard Black Ask but with a black wall as background both sets of speakers looked amazing. Not often you get this much ''HiFi'' in the same room ... FUN!

Our shop is stunning :)
