Tracker Samples' Use Questions? 2012-12-27 16:59:53 Reply

Hello, I have a question that been troubled me recently.

Often people edit/mod/rip samples from other modules for their own modules, and they often credit the origins. This is okay with tracking communities. However I know NG is quite strict with sampling. Is this okay to upload song that has samples from other?

Most of the time samples are hard to trace the first origin. For example I used Nightbeat's samples often, but according to some of his in-track comments, some traced back to Awesome, and so on. Sometime I am clueless on the origin because the artist didn't comment, so I only credit the known artist(s). Or I credit the original file (because there is no artist name) Is this fine with NG rules?

Thanks for taking your time.

You can sample anything that isn't COPYRIGHTED, but it's generally encouraged that everything in your uploaded songs is created by yourself.

I forgot to mention, that Royalty free is NOT the same as Copyright Free. People often mistake the two for being similiar or even the same thing.

Cool.

Just remember to credit absolutely everything, and avoid any MIDI ripping and copyrighted content, and you'll be fine.
