Hi John,

I suppose that by Online music services you mean OMDs (I think that's the more widely accepted term).

If you meant something different, then my answers will not be very meaningful :)

My experience is this domain is limited to MP3.com (RIP) and InterConnected.

"What benefit were they? "

Exposure, to parts of the world I would have never reached otherwise.

Contacts, which leads to collaborations, which is a very good experience too.

Otherwise, most of my "fans" were put off by adverts and the fact that you had to register to listen on MP3.com. With InterConnected, these two issues are solved, so I do expect more people will actually listen to my online tracks.

"Were they value for money? "

When I signed for MP3.com, it was free, so that's good "bang for the buck".

My current OMD (InterConnected) is free too (with a limit of 10 songs) *and* allows deep linking, which means my own site can allow streaming transparently for the users.

And you can't beat the price :)

So I can definitely recommend IC. Apart from your time, you have nothing to lose anyway.

I, too, would be interested in reading other users' experiences and feedback.

Thanks for the info Didier!

You're welcome.

I just created my own account there, seems like a decent place.

I think it is. Time will tell how it evolves.

If you post in the forums (it is customary to post for new users on IC, once the account is up and running), I will recognise your name (unless you take another nickname on IC), and say hello :)

Hi Didier

To be honest the ones I have had experience of are either gone, very bad, or both!

Vitaminic - complete crap

Ampcast - no free service, very little artist support

Recently I've been bombarded by OMD spam. So far the only decent one I've found is IC, thanks for the recommendation.

There are a couple of support sites, non-OMD, but I'll hold on any comment just yet...

Cheers

John
