May be worth a look for anyone interested in midi guitar - whether that's Pat Metheny and a Roland or Alan Holdsworth and a Synthax

This should be of interest to those of you who upload their songs to itunes, cdbaby and all the other digital aggregators and distributors...

You should always have an ISRC embedded in to your music as it uniquely identifies your track, album and links it to the appropriate record label and is the only way that you can be ensured to receive any broadcast rights. ISRCs are routinely embedded in to redbook PMCDS but not those meant only fr digital distribution. Until very recently if you uploaded material to a digital aggregator you would have to either inform them of any ISRCs or send them a physical redbook PMCD and hope that they would apply them properly. One large aggregator was found to have ignored 1000s of ISRCs from small labels and individuals choosing instead to apply it's own code.

Earlier this year the European Broadcast Union agreed the outline for a new standard for broadcast Wavs, which includes a requirement for embedded ISRCs. In line with this forecoming standard a few daw manufacturers who specialise in post production and mastering daws have sarted to code this in to their suites. Prism who make the mastering daw that we use, have just announced that the forethcoming update will include this functionality along with the ability to produce gapless tracks and accurate fades for non-redbook PMCD broadcast Wavs. We've been busy beta testing the pre-release candidate and are now happy to announce that we can check, confirm, read, write and edit ISRC on broadcast WAVs meant only for digital distribution. We are one of only a very small number of mastering studios that can do this at present.

For those who can't here's the program summary from the BBC:

'Kalamazoo Gals

Availability:
6 days left to listen

Duration:
57 minutes

First broadcast:
Monday 23 June 2014

As part of Radio 2's Guitar Season: Suzi Quatro unravels the mystery of the Kalamazoo Gals, quite possibly, the greatest craftswomen written out of American guitar history.

Legendary stringed instrument maker Orville Gibson began making guitars, mandolins and violins in the Michigan town in 1896. After his death, the business expanded producing a wide range of instruments that were popular for their quality and tone.

But as America was drawn into World War 2, Gibson claimed their work force stopped producing guitars and concentrated on making parts for radar equipment and aircraft wings to support the nation's war effort.

But this wasn't the case. As Suzi reveals, an all-female workforce made over 25, 000 instruments including 9000 guitars. So why did the company keep this quiet? Did they fear no one would buy an instrument if they knew it had been made by a woman?

We'll meet some of the women who worked in the Gibson factory in the 1940's and hear their stories. Their skill, dedication and attention to detail produced guitars that were used by artists from Buddy Holly to Gene Autry and Woody Guthrie.

Even though the Gibson company of today has new owners, Suzi asks why Gibson are still reluctant to acknowledge the role that these ordinary American women played in the creation of some of the most beautiful and melodic instruments crafted in their factory in Kalamazoo Michigan.'
