    First of all I dont think Audiosparx is unethical in any way. Personally I have found them very upfront in any dealings I have had with them and also I am quite successful with them.

    Now

    I dont think Music Cult is different from many libraries out there in offering gratis licenses, this is an evolving/evolved business model. It doesn’t make any sense for Music Cult to give gratis licenses with no expectation  of backend either, they would make no money  !! There is surely a big impetus for Music Cult to handle this correctly or otherwise they are shooting themselves in the foot and also severely jeopardizing AudioSparx sales ?

    I do have AS handle the publishing for me so that part is not an issue, it may be for some though. I do think a possible idea WOULD be to allow composers to assign some of their catalogue as Exclusive and have only that portion of their AS tracks included in Music Cult. Personally I am leaning towards ticking the box,I cant see a huge downside for me. This is still a non-exclusive deal albeit  with a 5 year term.

    This is a business after all and everyone has to take a measured leap of faith sometimes.

    The great thing about this site is talking about these things in the open and getting feedback not only from the library involved but also composers.

    You have too many issues to be dealt with here, first of all your Yamaha PSR-195 does not have usb out, just a midi out so you would need a separate midi interface. I would go to your local music shop and explain in detail what you require. The info you get here will not help you in the short term.

    TBH this is not the type of forum to ask this question, the answer is so vast these days and there are so many variables. If everybody here gave you a list of what they recommended and used, you would be more confused. Gearslutz is probably best for this type of thing as they have many different sub forums, covering a lot of bases.

    Even stranger is this, which is a piano version of a Skrillex tune which I think is remarkable.

    Original above.

    Kind of goes with the idea of the same composition done in radically different ways, re exclusivity.

    I will now set out to do dub step versions of my entire catalogue !!!!!!

    Thanks Michael for your response. The important point is read the contract and if you don’t understand it, take it to someone who does.

    The definition of Jingle Punks or other libraries exclusive contract lies within the wording of their contracts. There is no one absolute definition. It can mean forever, for a fixed-term or until a certain level is reached . Sometimes they allow you to pitch your music via your own website. It depends.

    However in general an exclusive contract gives the publisher/library an exclusive right to license to a third party the recording (master) and the composition for a fee. These two things are linked in this scenario. I don’t think that in an exclusive contract you can just remix the master. The composition has not changed and that is still under the exclusive control of the library/publisher you have signed with.

    In the traditional publishing world the composition and the master are handled separately by a publishing company (composition) and a record company ( master ). In this scenario of you want to use a U2 track and it’s master recording you need permission from two sources. If however you want just to use the composition, the publishers consent is all that is required. I am talking in general terms here.

    MichaelL will give a much more consise answer but I think remixing an existing track to sign to different exclusive libraries would be fraught with danger. However it may be a question how different it is. Could a gazoo version of an orchestral piece be acceptable. Mmm interesting discussion.
