    I got it straight away , great sounds and a big expansion on the original. I really dont see the issue with false positives on tunesat etc unless loads of composers do all drum cues at the same tempo and with the same patches. Hardly likely is it ? By its very nature it’s a library for supporting rhythms underneath melody and harmonic content.

    Sounds great, perfect for the spot, the whole point about music for picture (especially in advertising) is that it plays a totally supportive role to the product. In this case a very expensive bike!!!! Nothing jars or sticks out well done

    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.

    I am sure they do but the whole point of Splice is using Royalty free loops/stems in your own music without issue.

    Not sure, I am guessing that its stems from Jareds tracks. If so what would happen if you composed a new track using these and then submitted it to JP ?

    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.

    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.
