What browser should I use to view Aux Send?
I’ve designed Aux Send to be as cross-platform as possible… but if I had to, I’d recommend Safari, followed by Chrome, then Firefox. The site should function properly on iOS and Andriod devices, including the video player so you can watch episodes on the go. If you run into technical issues, please alert me to them here.
Can my band/solo project/collective be featured in an episode?
It’s possible, the best way to get picked for a taping is to be an unsigned musician who networks with other unsigned musicians; for best results, it should be with ones that have already been featured on the show. For the most part I’m not looking for submissions, so if you send in a demo or link to your website, please don’t be offended if it goes unreplyed.
What equipment is used to produce the show?
A shockingly inexpensive and obsolete collection of DSLRs, Protools gear and old Macs, not to mention a lot of borrowed mics and accessories. It doesn’t take an expensive studio to create a great recording, it takes a great performance from a great musician.
Hey! Your merch is crazy expensive! What gives?
The store is powered by Zazzle.com, who also produces any of the products you may buy. I wanted to be able to offer merchandise without an investment of capital, so for now this is the best option I could find. I make a very, very small amount from anything purchased (less than $3 on average) because Zazzle sets a standard price for merchandise based on the design and then pays a 10% royalty to the creator. Think of any purchase as a way to support the show by spreading the name and website, and not by contributing to a profit.
