Update: Dec 17, 2020: DIALOG AUDIO Launches 'THAT'S LIVE' streaming service, with no setup charges and no fixed costs

COLOGNE, GERMANY: Specialised audio performance tools developer Dialog Audio is proud to announce availability of its That’s Live streaming service — supporting bands, DJs, orchestras, or spoken word artists alike during today’s COVID-19-triggered turbulent times as a platform providing the technical infrastructure for facilitating worldwide live event streaming to paying audiences with no setup charges and no fixed costs involved — as of December 4…
What was previously a prohibitively costly, complicated stratagem, streaming live events to paying audiences has effectively now been opened up to any band, DJ, orchestra, or spoken word artist who wishes to do so. Straightforward and fair in its implementation, the That’s Live specialised streaming service supportively provides the technical infrastructure for facilitating worldwide live event streaming to paying audiences with no setup charges and no fixed costs involved. Indeed, it throws an economic lifeline to many more of those trying to work within the tightly-restricted confines of a live events industry so severely impacted during today’s COVID-19-triggered turbulent times, thanks to developer Dialog Audioadvancing into servicing such streaming so straightforwardly and fairly.

Getting going with That’s Live is straightforward. Start by registering online (https://dialogaudio.com/user/public/user/registerlogin) to use Dialog Audio’s live streaming service platform. Quickly create and schedule a live event and sell tickets to an audience worldwide with an automatically-generated event webpage that can conveniently be linked from social media channels, websites, and e-newsletters. The tickets bought from the event page are e-mailed to buyers after a successful transaction; ticket holders can then listen to the live stream as soon as the event starts. Simply speaking,Dialog Audio’s financial partner transparently takes care of all payments worldwide, including any taxes that may arise, whileDialog Audio itself handles customer support and, of course, the technical infrastructure. It takes an average of 15% for doing this, leaving the band, DJ, orchestra, or spoken word artist using the That’s Live specialised streaming service with an average 85% share of each ticket sold — can’t say fairer than that!

Talking technology, event streams are brought to That’s Live users’ audiences overDialog Audio’s reliable CDN (Content Delivery Network), itself guaranteeing that the audio stream concerned can also be streamed reliably to remote locations anywhere in the world (within reason). Receiving listeners can choose from the widespread HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) format as an AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) standard for lossy digital audio compression encoded at 128, 192, or 320 kbps adaptive that can be played back on commonplace operating systems such as Android, iOS, Linux, macOS, and Windows, or MPEG-DASH (Dynamic Streaming over HTTP) format as an AAC standard for lossy digital audio compression encoded at 192 kbps that can also be played back on those operating systems, albeit not supported by all media players. Put it this way: while all commonplace media players — including iTunes, Mplayer, and VLC, to name but a few — can be used by listeners, commonplace web browsers can usually play one of those two aforementioned streaming formats.

For the benefit of any band, DJ, orchestra, or spoken word artist considering streaming a live event to a paying audience for the first time and attracted to That’s Live as a specialised streaming service platform providing the technical infrastructure to achieve that in the most straightforward and fair way possible, please note that it is also necessary to have access to recording equipment such as an audio interface (to create the audio signal), a computer with Dialog Audio’s Live Processor cross-platform desktop application installed (to pick up the audio signal and stream it to the connected stream server), and an Internet connection (to transmit the stream). Saying that, though, worldwide live event streaming with paid access is, perhaps, easier done than said withThat Live!

Ace Frehley – Cherry Medicine - (Official Music Video).

Ace Frehley – Cherry Medicine - (Official Music Video).

Ace previously released the title track, "10,000 Volts" and single "Walkin' on the Moon." Rock ‘n’ roll and heavy metal simply wouldn’t sound, look, or feel the same without Ace Frehley. Among hundreds of accolades, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame® inducted him in 2014 as a Co-founder and the original lead guitarist of Kiss. Guitar World named him in the Top 15 of its “100 Greatest Heavy Metal Guitarists of All Time” and plugged the lead from “Shock Me” on the “50 Greatest Guitar Solos of All Time.” Magnifying the imprint of his catalog as a solo artist, Foo Fighters cut a fan-favorite cover of “Ozone,” and he even jammed out “New York Groove” alongside The Roots on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The late Dimebag Darrell of Pantera proudly sported a tattoo of Frehley on his chest, while Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine celebrated him on X/Twitter as “My first guitar hero.” 10,000 Volts upholds an incredible legacy for Frehley, spanning 50-plus years in the limelight. Back in 1978, he delivered his solo debut, Ace Frehley. It reached platinum status and exploded as “the highest-selling of the four Kiss solo albums in the Soundscan era.” Pitchfork even retrospectively rated it a rare “8.5” score. In 1987, he dropped Frehley’s Comet. Following Anomaly in 2009, he went on to make history once again. His 2014 Space Invader LP captured #9 on the Billboard 200 and emerged as “The only solo album by a past or current Kiss member to reach the Top 10 on the chart.” 2016’s Origins Vol. 1, bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums Chart and in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart. He notably maintained his momentum with Spaceman [2018]. "'10,000 Volts,' in its own time, in its own way, is similarly staggering – quite simply, OVERWHELMING. 10,000/10 -- Ghost Cult Magazine (February 22, 2024) RRHOF-inductee and guitar legend Ace Frehley releases a new video for "Cherry Medicine," featured on his new album, "10,000 Volts." His highly-anticipated album will be released tomorrow. Produced and co-written by Ace and Steve Brown, the uncontainable energy on the 11-tracks showcases some of Ace's best works since his '78 solo album. On "Cherry Medicine," a mean palm-muted chug underlines his pensive vocals where he confesses, “I knew I had to change my ways for sure to keep you by my side.” The track showcases another side of Frehley with its saccharine and sweet, soaring hook as he promises, “I love you, cherry medicine. You heal my every need and some.” He seals the sentiment with another powerhouse solo.
