Hi everyone,

If you would produce a track that you are going to upload to AJ, can you detach some parts/pieces and make a logo out of it – then upload both? sometimes i think while making a track this would be a good idea (depending on the track, of course). anybody did that already or did i just oversee some rules about it?

thanks, alex

Yes you can do that but only if you upload them as part of the same file and show both versions in the preview. In the description you write something like:

Included in the download -

Lion Audio track

Lion Audio track (logo version)

Hope that makes sense :)

Soundfix, if one does that, the upload will not be featured in the logos category, right?

That is true, but I’m not sure how else you could go about it as you can’t upload variations of the same track in different categories.

actually thats what i meant, Andrew. I understand what Sondfix said, but let me rephrase: If, during a production, you would “extract” a short phrase/part that might aswell be a base for a good logo/reveal sound, you’d make a new project out of it, add and delete stuff, change tempo etc. you would have a new sound, still with resemblance to the other though, and put into logos-category. this way you would kill two birds with one stone (if thats the right saying). is it allowed or, as Soundfix said, just within the main .zip??

Well I guess it all depends on how different it is from the original; if people hear them and automatically know they’re from the same musical idea then maybe there would be a problem, I’m not really sure.

I will flag for staff reply so you can get a definite answer :)

Good question. Both is conceivable.

What I think and feel about it is, that parts of a project should be in the Item-Zip where it comes from. That’s also making the Item more attractive. I think this is what you should do, when you think a few seconds of the track sounds interesting standing alone.

Or you really should make something new out of it which don’t belongs to the main track anymore.

Another idea would be the possibility to put the parts of a Main Track with a pre-assembled setting like All Files / Music / Music Packs / Music Parts / .... where you put it into “Music Parts” and set a link to the original. There the author can buy the short version cheaper, when he only needs the part. And you can do more sales in case that the original Item would be to expensive.

Sam is correct. If it’s immediately identifiable as being a variation, then it has to be bundled with the music item.

If, however, the arrangement is completely transformed, especially any melodic passages, to where it could be construed as an entirely different work, then it could arguably be accepted individually as a logo item alone.
