For me guitars and basses are the easiest part. I don’t like programming drums… so dull, always prefer to record live, but it’s a lot of work and lack of good drummers The hardest part for me is programming orchestral instruments. They rarely play as I wish so it’s lot of tweaking to get what I want and some like violin solo are just impossible to record without live instrument and musician.
Well deserved man! Congrats!
Some national PROs claim as default everything what is performed/broadcasted and you must prove that it’s RF or not registered. In my country they do such things and as performer I had to pay sometimes and wait for refund from them for not registered tracks. That’s so f… annoying.
Very good point… my good item describing tittles losing with Button 1 or Transition 50 or Cinematic Hit 78. Dirty flint is absolutely right!
Sometimes sfx are processed in regular way when queue is short
Good shot Mihai I have had suspicions many times, that some people are ripping sounds from Sound Ideas, but until they come to AJ it was impossible to prove.
Someone from Canada may buy reselling or distribution license from person who recorded this sound or from movie/documentary producer etc.
A noise reduction in adobe audition is quite effective. It’s good to have pure beep sound and load it as noise profile, then apply noise reduction to these parts. Usually beeps are narrow in frequency spectrum and there’s a chance to remove them almost inaudibly.
In general there’s no need to separate music and sfx. Many authors produce both. And what we should do with logos? Another site?
The fact is that these top authors ranks etc are just fun and nothing more. In 2 years all top ranks will be occupied by Sound Ideas But is that any profit from them besides of more following other authors? I don’t think so. I don’t see any sense to make another site like SoundGarden or SfxIsland etc. How many people submit SFX frequently – 200-300?
So if the ranks are useless and not fair just bring them down or sort by earned cash or badge level
