I'll show you mine if you show me yours . Actually, I've seen yours and have to say, for the benefit of other readers, it's a brilliant and fascinating resource, so go see http://www.bemuso.com

My own modest effort is at http://www.mattdowning.co.uk . It's not very exciting, and I still haven't worked out what to do about the pointless 'welcome' page - just ditch it probably and go straight to one of the other pages. But it serves it's purpose as the music is easily accesible so I can refer people to it if they want to hear examples of my work.

My other favourite forumee sites are by Blue Mask, Carlos Presents and James Lehman (very professional without being pseudocorporate or irritating).

I still haven't worked out what to do about the pointless 'welcome' page - just ditch it probably and go straight to one of the other pages.

Yeh, I wondered about what to put first on my site, i decided to go for just news on the opening page, rather than a 'Hi welcome to my site...' type page. I don't like thos 'click here to enter site' pages, so pointless, like shrink wrapping for web sites!

My own site's still under construction BTW, but when it's ready you'll all know about it!

Mine's www.rachelapp.co.uk.

I'm not too happy with it right now, i need to make it more user-friendly for people with poor sight (i have to admit i didn't really think about it when i designed it)

Oh, and i need more content LOL

It's just HTML raw coding - i'm a bit old fashioned when it comes to websites, probably because i did my first one in the "early days" (1995)... I mean, i'm old fashioned as a web designer, not a surfer! I like well-designed fancy websites but when i think about making a new website for whatever project i have or for friends, i always think of it in terms of coding (be it HTML, perl, php etc), it's quite bizarre... Maybe it's laziness LOL

Sounds unlikely Oli, but I'm prepared to be corrected. What's your measure of "largest"?

I had to look... trackitdown seem to have come from nowhere since August... what's the story? Do they advertise or is it word-of-mouth? I have to admit this is the first mention of them I've seen.

One of the main guys behind trackitdown.net is Ed Real who was the A&R for Nukleuz Records, which itself was pretty much the biggest hard dance label in the UK for about 6 years (think it's just folded though...)
So it's got credentials, and they seem to have a lot of the big labels of dance on there.

I think their proposal is much more directed at DJs than the 'consumer', and is a pretty compelling one - download a track, stick it on CD and play it out that evening, all for about a quarter of the price of a slice of vinyl.

I'll be sad to see vinyl go, but that's what it's looking like, at least for the smaller dance labels.

Vic, I happened to click on your link for some unknown reason and my immediate thought was "why are none of the images clickable links?".

Tip: Don't waste any opportunity on your site to make something clickable, as there is nothing worse for visitors, and the moment you scroll down the page on your site, you lose sight of the three yellow button links at the top right (well, on my screen you do).

Just my initial impressions.

Lol, Logic ST24 came with the soundcard (STA C-Port)-- I was puzzled as to what it was as well, and it didn't come up with anything on Google, but it seems to look the same as logic... I'd love to hear from anyone else that uses it - so far I can't find anyone else on this forum has it...
