Celebrate with us: 10,000 tracks on alonetone!

- posted by Sudara on September 10, 2009 - 32 comments -

Earlier this week, alonetone surpassed 10,000 tracks.

That just wows me. Wow.

If you loaded up alonetone and listened to every song in a row, you’d be kept busy 24 hours a day for pretty much a full month!

I’ve made so many new friends, heard so many new sounds, ran into some amazing music, had so much positive feedback on both the site and my music that I need to say thank you everyone for hanging out, sharing your music, letting me know when you run into glitches and bugs, and just in general being a wonderful group of people.

I want to celebrate. Anyone else?

I’m thinking the following: We make September the official ‘show your love to alonetone artists’ month and choose one of the following:

1) Cover and/or Remix a song of your choice by an alonetone artist. Be sure to get the artist’s permission of course. Maybe send them a private comment asking. I’d be willing to bet most would be honored, but it’s always polite to ask!

OR

2) Create a playlist of your favorite songs from alonetoner artists and publish it. For those with 100s of favorites this could be a real job!

Do one of these two things then post a comment here pointing us to your track or playlist and we’ll feature the results in October. Oh, and one person participating and posting here by the last day of September will be randomly chosen to win a Very Special To Be Announced alonetone prize :)

Thank you guys and gals again!

@Sudara

to win a Very Special To Be Announced alonetone prize

I have it from a reliable inside source that this prize will be that piano you busted up....... I mean, sampled :D

@ the rest of you, I don't want to get all cornball on ya, but you folks proved that you can teach an old dog new tricks about synthesizers and REVERB!!!

This community has become an asset to my home recording projects. I hear everything here. Even the kitchen sink! I am very happy to be a contributor and a dedicated listener.

Thanks Suds, I'm sure I can speak for everyone when I say, we appreciate your efforts.

I hope I'm here to see 10,000 artists.

haha, that's hilarious Gumbo! Was just informed that I comprise about 3% of the site uploads.. last year I was maybe 10%.. so this place has grown quite a bit this year! I'm unable to keep up with the total site growth, which is great! So much great music has found a home on alonetone over the past year.

Congrats to everyone! I haven't been here as much as I'd like lately, but this is without a doubt my favorite music place on the web, so much great music and music makers!

Congrats to all! We love the community here - nothing better than getting praise from fellow musicians on musical ideas. Up here in SF we're all in transition this weekend, but hopefully we'll have time to finish up a cover or two of some of our AT favorites.

Thank you Sudara...I can honestly say I get all my creative juices from alonetone. I'm not sure I even would be recording any more if I hadn't found alonetone. Well done!

Now that the excitement has died down. Allow me to be the first of the second wave of folks saying:

Holy crap! Congratulations! A truly wonderful home you've built for us. My deepest and warmest thanks.

My 10k playlist is here:

Spent many many happy hours on this, though it was incredibly hard to get the tracks down to 25... Consider this a double CD! And Vol 2 is already almost complete.

(I love Alonetone.)

Sudara said

Hey hey!

Partially out of greed (I've been traveling the last 2 weeks and want to participate) and partially out of common sense, the "deadline" for getting your cover tune or mix is extended.

You have until October 15th. The Prize will be announced this weekend, keep your ears open :)

Enjoy!

Thank you. Even if I'm new, I'm here because this place is really a comfortable home for musicians. Thank you for making it so good.
I can't think of a better place to share my music.
