Isn’t it against AJ policy to let others add vocals to AJ tracks?
Why not? I think, the song with vocals and just a track – these are totally different objects..

Sorry, Alexander. They are not totally different objects at all (same music). And, after looking further into it, AJ does not allow this.

From the License FAQ’s page (here):

“Can I use an AJ track in a stand-alone music track? What about sound effects?

You may not use music in stand-alone music tracks, but you could use sound effects in a music track.

Example: You can’t add lyrics to an audio track and sell it on iTunes”

I’m afraid to say if you start earning royalties from her songs, I think you have to take these off AudioJungle. Or you could get her to get rid of them altogether and keep them on AJ, I think. Am I wrong? I’m always willing to be wrong if I’m missing something!

Tracks are still on AJ..
Also were you compensated well enough for these songs? or did she just buy a standard license of AJ, sang over those and then claimed the whole production?

They paid some extra money for me..

Add the songs she used to AdRev! That’ll get her attention. :D

My new favorite undiscovered AJ author who has seemed to abandon adding to his portfolio:

Thanks for this thread because I’m now reminded that we used to see the song’s frequency levels, like here: http://dailylamas.com/img/demo2.png I’m not seeing that anymore. Anyone else? I agree the big black empty box is no good. It’s boring. Staff, how come we don’t see that anymore? Is this a bug that has gone overlooked?

Hey Phil, you’re correct, this is not an allowed use, and is specifically prohibited.

See Clause 11 of the Music License:

You can’t use the Item in applications allowing an end user to customise a digital or physical product to their specific needs, such as “on demand”, “made to order” and “build it yourself” applications. You may use the Item in these ways only if you purchase a separate license for each final product created using the Item.

The End Product here is the customized video slideshow that incorporates the music. Not the app itself – that’s simply the means to the end. So if they wanted to use AudioJungle music they would need to purchase one license for each final video slideshow created that uses your song.

Hope that helps!

Thank you, Eric! :)

I’m from southern California and one of the reason why I usually avoid SF is that it’s too damn expensive. My recommendation is take lots of money cuz’ you’ll need it. Other than that you’ll enjoy other places such as Yosemite. Also, try and visit Sequoia and King Canyons National Park. Here’s all you need to know, Visit California

Thanks for your input! :)

Hi! I’m looking for travel recommendations and advice about spending a few days around San Fran, CA region with my brother and father in the middle of April. Would love some help if you got it.

We’re looking at Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Napa Valley, San Fran, Big Sur…?

Do you have any recommendations of things we should do? Places we should see? Information we should know?

Thank you so much! :)

Authors (or Staff), I need your help.

I have a question from a potential buyer about what license he should buy. The thing is, I don’t think that he is allowed to use my music this way…

He has an app that takes pictures from the user’s phone and turns them into video slideshows. In this app, he wants to give the user the ability to pick the music that would go behind their slideshow video. He’s wondering what license he has to buy in order to offer one of my songs in his library of song choices for all the users of the app.

I don’t think this is allowed, right? Because he’s essentially offering them as free-use to the user. Am I correct?

Maybe it would be fine if I was a non-exclusive author? I’m not.

Thanks for your help!
Phil

PS. as a quick side note, can I suggest that AdRev authors don’t copy/paste their email conversations from AdRev directly into this thread. There’s a confidentially notice at the bottom of our correspondence with them, so it’s probably best to adhere to this and explain our discussions with them here, in our own terms.

Okay, yep! Thanks for the heads up.
