Here’s more proof-of-concept fun: an NFT for my first tweet from account @MikeShupp. Part of my MTS Archive 1 collection on Ethereum Mainnet — from the vault, non-music, non-photography, or otherwise archived NFTs. It’s token #2, minted on my ERC-1155 Ethereum contract (0xf152…667c), and is a limited edition, with a minted supply of 10. It’s live now on OpenSea, currently priced at 0.01 ETH.
Honored to be included on the Mint Songs Genesis Poster NFT, which dropped Tue NOV 30th 2021, for participating as an artist in the Mint Songs beta. Mint Songs is a music NFT platform focused on helping artists build web3 communities. Their new product, Posters, will (from their blog) “…enable artists to convert prints and flyers from tours, festivals, and more into NFTs that their fans can claim for free with their email address and build their digital collection.” Mint Songs uses the eco-friendly Polygon blockchain (a scaling solution for Ethereum) and offers $0 minting fees.
Collect “Right For You,” from my back catalog, today, on Mint Songs.

On Oct. 10th, 2016, DDEX announced the completion of the long-awaited Recording Information Notification standard (RIN), addressing the need to restore sound recording metadata (credits, liner notes, artwork) in the age of digital distribution.
Sound Credit Tracker by Soundways, is a DAW plug-in that implements the RIN standard and allows users to enter and track performer and recording credits as they happen. Using the DDEX standard, the plug-in stores the metadata in a small, .RIN XML file, to be included and passed along with the project session files.
Ten years in the making, the RIN format comprises an XML file that standardizes the metadata describing all aspects of a recording project and sound recording. RIN is designed for Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) manufacturers to enable their users to capture and store essential metadata in a standard form at the point of creation of a musical work and/or sound recording.
Maureen Droney, Managing Director at The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing (and a key member of the RIN Working Group) stated “RIN will facilitate crediting, ensuring that performers, producers, recording engineers are properly identified and paid for their contributions.”
