The “loopophobic” part of me is happy somehow, at the same time I feel sorry for them.

Those threads don’t expose Envato to legal actions, but the tracks do, and if we keep hiding the dirt under the carpet we don’t actually make cleaning.
Having a big discussion, hearing all the arguments, looking into all the legal issues, that would make a cleaning, that would help the “copy/paste authors” understand what is wrong with this. That would help maybe us, the very “loop intolerants” to figure out what loops could be used and what licensing you need to use and how to make original works even from loops.

If the “copy/paste authors” have just a pretty hard to find article that explains about 40% of the issue, and nothing else, no reaction of fellow musicians, then you can’t even blame them for breaking the rules.
Even in this thread there were people asking what’s the difference between using loops and hiring a musician to play a part. All this thread locking trend is like “that’s interesting, please tell me more while I gag you”.

I constantly see this subject appearing often, and the threads locked after several pages.
This attitude from AJ officials/ forum moderators, stop any kind of discussion of authors about this subject. This way we will NEVER actually hear all the opinions for or against, we will NEVER get to any kind of conclusion and NEVER raise awareness.
- But what if the clients see the discussion?
Glad you asked my dear alter ego. There is a very small chance that clients come to forum, as much as you get into discussion between employers of the shop you buy your groceries from, but still, in theory there is a chance they come and see, which is not a bad thing.
The client would see a strong community struggling to offer original works, a community of strong artists that doesn’t need to “cheat” their way on top and a market place where authors and moderators interact free, responsible and polite to keep this market a fair place.
But what I’m saying… why would somebody want to see that. Let’s close, lock and erase all real discussions. It’s a quite scary thought that clients might realize that the authors are actually people, human, and they have opinions, feelings ad other such frivolous things.

Without posting links obviously what was the issue here ?

This is the AJ policy, when things get interesting, some AJ official close the thread. It’s dangerous to have opinions.

Make your profile pic like “3$” or “DISCOUNT 90%” and this will appear on all of your tracks, then hope nobody actually pay attention to the real price and buy a lot from you.

Very creative approach, but in the end everything sounds the same, guitars, brass, pianos, all is distortion-gate-filter, chopped to death and in the end you have a synthy … pulsating thing, pretty much like 8Dio Aura.

Great example. I only heard a difference in character, not necessarily in quality. They sound, for all intents and purposes, very similar. I couldn’t tell you which is which though.

I’ll put later some markers where is what :)

You can’t compare a Gibson against an Epiphone,

Well, I did, and if you listen to my example… here’s the challenge, which one is on the left and which one is on the right? Also, from time to time they switch.

Just to be historically correct, the first guitar that Les Paul built, aka “The Log”, was built for Epiphone. Epiphone was Gibson’s main rival prior to its acquisition in 1957. To this days Epiphone keep making their own models like “Joe Pass Emperor II”, “Sheraton II” the “Viola Bass”...etc, along with the Gibson models.

Epiphone guitars are actually very good for the price. I made a test some years ago with a 2100$ Gibson Les Paul Traditional and a Epiphone SG which the drummer got for 100$ from a flea market in London.

Now I’ll let you use your ears:

Right now I don’t have any of those guitars… :(
Oh well, I bought a Fender Telecaster made in Japan, I have a Joe Pass signature model by Epiphone with Seymour Duncan pickups and a Aria Pro PE-R80 that is an amazing guitar (from 1982).
I like the most the Epiphone.
