The online world is becoming more and more relevant?not just as a center of communications and commerce, but as a place to try out new ideas and get instant feedback. Case in point: Trent Reznor has released his new album online, and you can download the whole thing?free?at www.nin.com. What's more, it's available in multiple formats, including MP3, FLAC, and high-res 96kHz/24-bit. Still want more? You can download some multitrack files as well, and mix them yourself. Seriously.

Does this devalue music? We'll find out, but according to the site, Reznor simply wants to give something back to the people who have supported him all these years. And, the album will be made available as a physical product you can buy. I don't think music will be "all free, all the time" any time soon, but I do think what Reznor has done will get him publicity and notoriety that no amount of money could buy. It's just one more example of someone taking full advantage of what the online world has to offer.

There are so many ways to get your music heard online, whether it's putting a link to your website in your sig on the forums, using an outstanding service like TuneCore (www.tunecore.com), or taking advantage of social networking sites.
