Hello! i just wanted to say,Thanks for letting me know your process.
Thank you for talking to me, because I received an 90 days bans from the M-bot, which is it completely fine!
It just surprised me at the start. This is because i didn't understand the rules and wanted to show my talent in music.
Now that i read what you said, i will need to check the chord and any melody in the loops are in sync,
I also used an app called groove box which it is free on iPad/iPhone where you can export into separate wav loops.
Every song i do, is made from the scratch and no sample is used in groove box, just recommended midi note of drum beat. (automated suggestion) sometime i use it and edit it to make it or change the drums sound when i found the right rhythm.
I also use garage band and sometime i do use samples which it is alright?, let me know because i do have receive different instrument from the sample pack to mess around with the synth or the drum machine. (picture below if you don't know what i mean)
Samples, also treat with the same caution as loops, because some sample providers can be very picky about how their stuff's being used. If it comes with your own software (e.g. GarageBand), in most cases it should be okay, because most DAWs allow their default samples to be used for whatever.
GrooveBox might be a bit ambiguous, I'm not entirely familiar with it. It may be the whole Magix problem all over again — whereby most who use the software just want to mash loops, and because of that, legit composers can get caught in the dragnet.
I'll have another mod weigh in on what may have confused you about the rules as well, hoping they can help you out.
While i'm not really a sample guy, i'm more of a midi guy, i can at least say that what i know is this: Your songs must be (mostly) your own original work. Using a sample or a loop in a song is not against ToS but making a song entirely composed of premade material is.
For example, i've made songs using loops before, as seen in:
at around 1:53, a chord pattern plays on a rhodes piano. This was a loop from the mixcraft library that i ended up basing the entire song around (even the parts where the loop is absent). This isn't against ToS.
There's parts of the song that use a drum loop from the library as well (starts right at the intro), but other parts of the song has drums that had me take the loop and cut out pieces (such as the kick) to make my own new loops using pieces of the original. The newly created loop can be heard at 2:00.
All the instrumentation otherwise are all midi and were programmed in via interface, note by note, and the melody and other things like arps and such were all composed by me. So even this song which uses a few samples/loops is still at the end of the day, a mostly original piece....
Now, if i made a song that consisted of only that rhodes loop on top of the drum loop, both unedited/unaltered, and uploaded that to the AP, it would be flagged because that would be a track that i didn't really create, but rather, merely assembled. If you are making music on this app "groovepad" which I am unfamiliar with, and all you are doing is dragging and dropping different sounds you find in libraries, then you aren't really making a song of your own creation, you're just assembling one.
Songs made ENTIRELY of sample/loops with high editing are allowed, because that consists of more work than just dragging and dropping premade material on top of each other and calling it a day. Songs like Daft Punk's One More Time is a good example of this. They took an old song, cut it up and pieced it together differently to make an entirely new song. This is cool and I like seeing people do this with loops and samples they find.
Does this make it easy to understand?
