Looks like other people had that same problem. Check this forum post:
You might also want to consider trying the demo version of Studio One Pro. I think that at the end of the 30 day trial you can choose to continue using the program as the free version.

I'm not sure about your "genre", maybe someone else can help you determine that, but in the United States, as well as many other countries, you have automatic copyright on your work once you finish it. It might be wise to register your copyright though. You should visit the copyright office: and see this forum post:

Why take all the fun out of scoring your own composition, instead of a program handling it automatically for you? There would also be less mistakes to fix on the score. There are also many services available if you look that offer the preparation of sheet music of your piece.

Mic Techniques » Vocal compression for an opera singer » Go to message
None! Plain and simple, if you are recording lieder, arias, or other operatic pieces. The proper placement of microphones (varies from concert hall to concert hall) in the recording is extremely important. The balance of dynamics between say for example, a singer and pianist, is controlled by the performers themselves for the most part.

Mic Techniques » Binaural Miking/Recording » Go to message
Binaural recording is a method of recording sound that utilizes two microphones, arranged in such a way as to recreate a 3-D stereo sound. It is supposed to create the impression that the listener is actually in the room with the performers or instruments. "Dummy head recording" is the most common method used to make a binaural recording. Stereo headphones must be used to hear the full effect of this recording method.

Information about binaural recording can be found here:

Here's some example recording (scroll down to the mp3 links):

Mic Techniques » General Miking Tips for Classical Music » Go to message
Recorded in stereo, without any spot miked usually.
- Keep in mind that processing/effects of any kind are almost NEVER used. That means no compression, no eq etc..
- Close miking of any kind (including piano) is almost never used. Close miking (even a piano) does not produce the natural sound of an instrument.
- Dynamic contrast and balance in the recording comes from the performer/performers.
- Wrong notes/flubbed phrases are usually edited using a 4-point stereo editing technique.

The main principle is to try to recreate a natural performance as though you are right in the audience at a concert hall.

There are quite a few different stereo recording techniques used in the recording of Art Music, and most engineers seem to agree that less mics are better than many mics.

Here is an article that outlines in a brief manner some of the techniques used:

Here is a link to a company that shares a little bit of information about their particular approach to recording:

I posted this interview video of the well known classical recording engineer (in the interview above) in another forum post, but I feel it is of importance enough to post again:

How do I (You fill in the blank)? » Writing a Musician Biography » Go to message
A good biography helps the audience connect personally to the artist. Bios are an important marketing strategy, so the writing style and format matters tremendously. Always be sure to use proper grammar and proof read several times before calling it "finished".

Start by making a list on scrap paper. Things to consider including:
- Recent concert engagements you've had.
- Awards and degrees earned.
- Other accomplishments.
- Recording projects.
- Upcoming projects.
- Hobbies.
- Unusual facts about yourself.
- A quote from a good review.

It helps to make both a short and long version of your biography.

Here's a nice article about writing a bio for bands:
