Certainly in some territories you can definitely copyright an arrangement of a public domain song. Usually exists with traditional folk songs here in Ireland and UK.

Rick Beato does the best breakdown of this. The previous vids I have heard have altered the pitch and tempo of the KP track so it sounds like a mashup, hardly proof of anything. Another BS lawsuit IMHO
If we’re talking about the same library, I once got asked to change _all_ of the major chords in a future bass track to minor chords because the track wasn’t sounding dark enough. When that wasn’t enough, it was suggested: “Hmm, we might have to make them diminished chords then”.
And we have winner, can’t beat that !!!!
I have had a few PRS ones, PITA. Sometimes its just an admin error, Paul Thompson (Spitfire) had a story about an ad he did that went to Bryan Ferry of all people. He got 10K back .
Not a lawyer so won’t comment on the rights and wrongs of this case however any civil legal case needs to be viewed on the realistic outcome of a win, and more importantly how much will it cost to achieve that.September 30, 2018 at 3:03 pm in reply to: Bouncing stems – same or different volume from stereo mix? #30958
I always render (Cubase terminology) my midi tracks and then have a Macro key command to hide and disable the midi track. This saves resources and also places the hidden midi track just above the audio version if I need to go back. Regarding stems I just solo the relevant tracks and bounce out. There can be certain situations where the the send fx (reverb etc) need to be separate which requires a different setup from the outset. Jason Graves has a YT channel where he describes this in detail.
Not trying to be funny, I would listen to lots of this guy for the clavinet/rhodes funk grooves. You have picked one of the hardest genres to define musically , it really is all about the feel.

Good take on this Chuck.
As others have said the video just has a few orchestral elements, Symphobia is on sale now maybe worth checking, basically pre baked sections which sound great.
Having seen and witnessed orchestrators on film scores do their thing, its a life long learning curve really. What I guess you are aiming for is to add orchestral textures to tracks to give a hybrid type sound.
Comment left, hypothetically speaking of course, their system for composer payment could easily be gamed. According to them you need to always download a new version of the track if you use it for a different project.This enables them to work out the composer splits. What is to stop you from creating an account and just download your own track 100 times.For very little money you can do this easily. Even on AJ this was/is (tx Music1234) an issue but with a far greater monetary investment.
On the flip side how do make sure that the extra download happens? More often than not I would say the video content guys just use the same track over and over without doing this.
They are also NOT involved in Content ID so their claim about hassle free for YT is bogus, also with not being in Content ID they have no idea how your widespread tracks usage is.
