Of course I'm afraid about the price, but this new controller, used a generic Midi controller can really be a dream for me, 24 faders, many knobs with names ( easy to remember functions, even if its not the sames for your plugins/Daw) , Nice look. Congrats to the team anyway .

Le gouvernement fédéral vient d'approuver le règlement d'ordre intérieur organisant le fonctionnement de la Commission artistes. Cela signifie qu'il sera prochainement obligatoire de disposer d'une CARTE ARTISTE (pour utiliser le RPI) ou d'un VISA ARTISTE pour travailler selon un régime de travailleur salarié prévu par l'Article 1bis.

Le Guichet des Arts a réalisé un dossier clair et complet détaillant le rôle de la Commission artistes et la vocation des documents qu'elle est chargée de délivrer (carte, visa et déclaration d'indépendant). Vous y trouverez toute l'information nécessaire à appréhender ces changements, ainsi que les formulaires officiels permettant d'introduire les demandes.

Kenny Gates (PIAS): «Youtube, c’est un véritable scandale»

Kenny Gates (PIAS): «Youtube, c’est un véritable scandale» | E-gesture: Music, composition, gesture, acoustics, perception... | Scoop.it
Youtube, qui ne paye rien aux labels et aux artistes, c’est un véritable scandale. Et Spotify ou Apple Music, qui font de vrais efforts pour payer les artistes et les producteurs.

Pour une écoute sur Spotify, combien touchez-vous ?

On reçoit 0,3 centime par stream. Pour Youtube, c’est dix fois moins. Et il faut partager cela entre le distributeur, le label, et l’artiste. Ca semble peu, mais en 2015, on a dû traiter 13 milliards de streams. Et le plus compliqué pour nous, c’est de faire la comptabilité. On reçoit ces milliards de données de Spotify, et on doit acheter en permanence de nouveaux serveurs pour les stocker. Puis il faut répartir les gains, car Spotify n’a évidemment pas accès à nos contrats. C’est un travail de titan.

Avec 16 filiales à l’étranger, [PIAS] a des airs de multinationale, plus de label indépendant...

C’est une insulte. Nous sommes une transnationale, présents dans plusieurs pays. Mais nous, nous payons nos impôts. Vous savez, le label indépendant d’Adele a payé en 2014 plus d’impôts que Facebook, Apple, Amazon et Microsoft réunis !
