Man, there was quite a lot of stuff to go through. Really sorry for taking so long. I was busy with exams before and when they were over, I didn't realise there was such a backlog to take care of. Thank you to everyone here for helping keep the Audio Portal a cleaner place.

I dunno about this one. It is seem to be a MIDI instrument change, but also seem to be a legitimate remix. What do you think, guys?

Different tempo and length from the original, and it has a slightly different structure. I think I'll let it pass.

I consider this a test/spam song, just hear it, it sounds like someone dying.

Sounds like crap, but not something we would ban for or remove. As BrokenDeck said earlier, best to just vote negatively on it and/or leave it be.

Removed and banned for a month. I also removed his other tracks which were also not his.

Unfortunately (yes, I really mean unfortunately), this song is a copyright violation due to it being a blatant combination of 2 songs; Stereo Madness and Can't Let Go.
Apparently this was to use in a GD level, per the song's description.

Wow, that's never happened before. Track deleted, account banned for a month.

I know it's doubtful but I feel like there's the possibility that it's an official account (especially considering the username, profile description, and all of the links to their social media), so I don't want to go ahead and remove the tracks straight away. I'm not sure what we can do but I'll try and contact them from their website, which has an email address, and ask them if they can confirm the account's legitimacy. No idea if I'll get a reply but I may as well give it a shot.

I've removed all those tracks. Those are definitely stolen.

This one's being a bit more difficult to track, since all I have is the name "q-bic" and no author comments. But everything else he has uploaded has been stolen.

Taken care of! I also went ahead and deleted the second one. I don't usually go under "guilty until proven innocent" but I make some exceptions. If that track actually was his and he wanted fairer judgement, then he should've given his author's comments a bit more details than just "Lol". Either way, I can always re-publish the track if need be.

Got an email back. It's not an official account and they requested the tracks to be removed immediately. Going to do that now, and I'll also perma-ban the account as it seems to be only made to post Knife Party music.

Exactly. Somehow, I feel that a 'real' author would make a 'real' author comment. I did on all my submissions, y'know?

It's a combination of nearly all the game music in Geometry Dash. That's OcularNebula, ForeverBound, DJVI, Step, Waterflame, Dj-Nate... quite a list.

Found another one, this time stolen from "M83" (I don't know who that guy is but whatever)
Also, the description says its only for use in Geometry Dash.
I pretty much like how going to the levels list in Geometry Dash helps you find stolen songs.

Response to Audio Portal Cleanup 2015-02-24 20:35:12


...And yet another one

I have first heared this on "osu!", then realized there were a few Geometry Dash levels with this music and then I remembered the osu thing and I said "oh, this one is stolen!" and decided to INMEDIATELY report it.

Alright, so this guy spagboard has been uploading edm and dubstep track he admits aren't his for a while. He says he's been uploading them to use in Geometry Dash levels.

Somehow no one noticed when the song he submitted Slender, which is currently featured in audio, is stolen. I even found the damn track, which is a collab between OMG and ShockWave just by simply googling "slender dubstep." Here's the youtube video.

Here's the track he submitted:

Here's another one. He doesn't even bother to change the names of the songs. Flashpoint by Tarro (EH!DE Remix)
His submission:

I could go through and find each and every one of them, but I don't have a ton of time.

He had many more when I first found him, with something like 30 or 40 songs at some point (though I'm probably wrong) and has been deleting them I guess.

Anyway, get this dude please.
