Anyone using Rin-M?

I just downloaded this last night - going to start using it from here on in, as getting and giving credits in the digital era has become all but non-existent. This seems like a step in the right direction…

Seems like a pretty good idea. I watched the video. What happens to the .rin file at the very end though? Does all the metadata get embedded into each…mp3? wav? Where does the information ultimately get used?

I’m confused too. They said it was free, but when you go to download it, its $30? Did they mean the service is free (as no subscription license)?

$30 is a reasonable price, but I don’t fully understand what it does. I have the same question as @Cristina about the metadata system.

It’s designed to be passed on through each stage of the project so that every person involved in a piece of music can be credited. You send the .rin file with the song/project onto the next person involved, whether that be another player, mixer, producer or mastering engineer, then they add their information and send it on to the next stage.

The ultimate goal is an easily accessible platform that enables credit to be given where due in the digital realm.

It’s not a service. It’s an information exchange enabler. The way I see it, ultimately it relies on everyone in each step of the process to “pay it forward”.

To answer you both at once: There are two versions, the free version and the pro version. The pro version has some extra capabilities, one of which is the ability to embed metadata in the .wav and .mp3 files you send them out. In other words, if you will be providing completed deliverables, having the pro version might be a good idea, considering the meta data embedding capabilities.

There are 2 different videos in the link I posted - one for the free and one for the pro version. They explain the differences in detail.

Normies and plebs would see this as an invaluable tool when it comes to consolidating various meta data into a single ‘easy to use’ application.
Those with a bit more self/social-awareness would see it as an insidious data mining tool, used to further strip away, ever-declining, personal privacies.

PROTIP: If you use a Facebook account, consider yourself a ‘normie’.
