Re: regarding music theory

Assuming that we're talking about subtune 2 of the paperboy.sid.... Whilst I haven't pulled this apart in SID2MIDI, (or similar), my initial feel on listening is that it's C7 & F7 not Cmin & Fmaj.. It's a very 'bluesy' lead-riff and with many blues structures, the bass follows the minor progression....

Re: Another case of stolen work

So... If the video is riddled with ads, (which it is).. Then the video IS monetized.. yes? If it's monetized.. who monetized it? and who's getting the ad revenue? Rebeat? Taktakt? or the YouTuber? Obvs.. I can't do anything directly regarding the 'thing on a spring' sampling as I'm not the copyright...

Re: Another case of stolen work

Can anyone offer any guidance on this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UD7Ti5-X5Ww Contacted this guy via facebook because he's got Ocean Loader 3 in there and the video is monetized.. He was really reasonable & understanding but said he hasn't monetized the video - He showed me the youtube form for...

Re: WIP Ocean Loader 3

@buzzard Had another couple of listens through... because you've lifted the bass-line an octave or two, it's sort of taken away the low-end drive, (vs the original), assuming you're trying to achieve some degree of familiarity. On the middle-8, the background arpeggio is more prominent than the lead...

Re: WIP Ocean Loader 3

One question @Peter: "Make sure it comes after the instrument in track order or you'll be EQ'ing fresh air.." How this looks will depend on which Sequencer / Digital Audio Workstation you're using but... What I mean is... if you're using samples or soft-synths on a track in your DAW, make sure the ...

Re: WIP Ocean Loader 3

I'm sorry - I really don't understand what your trying to say: "to rebuild a song as close as possible". Could you maybe say it a different way? If I don't get it, (and I'm reasonably comfortable with mixing and it's terminology) then 'buzzard' probably won't understand either..... Are you talking a...

Re: WIP Ocean Loader 3

No daXX! What I mean is 'Muddy'.. when instruments in the low-mids are playing notes like 3rd's & 5th's to the bass-line's root note.. The kinda thing that keyboard players do with their left hand and go steaming into the bass-player's space... For the benefit of 'buzzard', maybe you could explain w...

Re: WIP Ocean Loader 3

Okay - Let me see if I can translate daXX's comment into more lay-terms for you.... Muddy, generally occurs in the low-mids although it can also simply mean 'lack of brightness' - If your mix is muddy, try this... Each instrument has a range of notes and therefore a frequency range that it produces....

Re: WIP Ocean Loader 3

Hey Buzzard.. It's Peter Clarke... thanks for covering the tune :) For me, the lead-line from 1:21 onward, gets a bit lost in the mix. It recovers some after 1:40 but could maybe be a bit louder. From 3:25 onward, the cymbals seem to get used a LOT. If it's intentional then fine but they're very dom...
