I will still allow people to join, but I think we are ready to really start working on this album.
Now for the official rules:
1. Absolutely no remixes of any kind
2. All your music must be original
3. You will be allowed to post this music on the internet, however you must disable all downloads
4. Each track must be a minimum of 2:00.
5. Refrain from using any loops from sample packs (I.E., construction kits)
6. We will accept any genre
7. Absolutely no profanity or adult themes
8. If you use sound FX, make sure it is completely legal and royalty free for commercial purposes
9. If you cannot create original material for this album due to personal reason, you may submit a track that you have already released (just make the downloads are disabled)
10. HAVE FUN! :)
Q: Why can't I enable downloads for my song?
A: Good question! We want to make sure that people actually buy the album. After all, this is for charity! If your song is the only song they want from the album and they are able to get it for free, odds are they will not download. However, if you feel like this is unfair we can all take a vote on it.
Q: Can I submit a track I have already released?
A: Sure you can! Just make sure all downloads are disabled.
Q: Will I make any money from this?
A: Sadly, you will not. Our goal is to donate our time for charity. We want to raise as much money as we possibly can so we can help the Child's Play organization as much as we possibly can. However, this will look really good on your portfolio!
Q: Where will you be selling the album?
A: I plan on using PledgeMusic.com. I have already got in contact with them and they like the idea.
Q: This isn't a scam, is it?
A: Of course not! The Child's Play organization (http://www.childsplaycharity.org/) is a legit charity. If you're familar with The Humble Bundle, you'll know who this charity is!
Q: What rewards will we be offering?
A: Good question. I planned on asking the entire group for suggestions.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask them!
As of right now, the due date isNovember 25th, 2013. If you feel like that is not enough time, please let me know. Hopefully we still start this campaign sometime around Christmas time to give the charity a nice Christmas gift. I want to raise between $5,000 and $10,000.
