just clear the sample if u sell it. geez.
did u go to a school to learn engineering arcane?
i didnt produce for them, obviously, as my name isn't on their album
i mixed monitors at the mark ecko gettin' up festival in toronto, august 13th and 4th, 2005 with towers productions
all those artists performed
loool thats hardly a legit resume then. honestly if uve never dealt with actual sample clearance dont make up bs.
Wow, that's almost like the guy sellin soda at the festival saying that he worked with those artists too.
Working with them means actually working WITH them. The bouncer at a club doesn't say that he's worked with Mobb Deep when they perform at the club that he works at.
word the fuck up!
Lol this thread is mad funny. Really, heads know what concerns them and what doesn't. Hell, even these producers on the net that say "don't steal my shit or I WILL sue you" doesn't really mean shit. Cats are actually pressing up albums with beats that arent exclusively their shit and who ever finds out? No one!
Being on a Hip Hop board, or listening to a Hip Hop track dissing sampling is dumb though...Hip Hop=Sampling. Whether the shit was created professionally, chopped, looped, simple, or complex isn't the issue. I'm sorry, heads that think that all Hip Hop based beats should be composed??? Get the fuck outta here.
I remember reading a few threads on the whole suing issue, I remember being on the Non Prophets board (I hate these fuckers, but anyways) I saw a thread of a recent court case saying that a certain amount of the shit needed to be sampled and certain level had to be reached. Meaning units and I guess a label.
So I doubt Rufus would coincidentally walk into a session of me sampling their shit even though I have no label backing, probably won't be doing more but selling the beat and fading in the distance, and then bring up a suit.
I know everyone wants to pretend to be more professional than they are...and I agree with knowing the facts and details of your facet/genre/career whatever. But...realism has to be a factor too, lol.
anyway, to really get back to the whole educational thing and learning cuz arcane and everyone is here to help, let's stop arguing and debating and help a dude wit a few questions. cool ? =p
"you need an mpd for that shit"
what is an MPD and what do u need it to do?
composing and sampling... key differences?
i know i'ma probably get bashed lol but i need to kno specifically. i'm the kid at school that puts is hands up... no not really but here i will.
anyway, if any y'all livin' in the tdot area and willing to help me out, cook some 'crack' up, or whatever the case may be, get at me through msn or just pm me.
and yo, get off arcane's back, homey's takin the time to help everyone out.. how cruel this world may be, heh.
getting back to the topic about sampling.. i've got a tutorial somewhere that shows a bit abt it. if i can find it i'll post it or pm you or something. peacee
hes asking the right people but hes asking the wrong questions. its not how do u sample but ask specific things. i could tell u a fast way of sampling is
1. record sample
2. loop sample.
3. add drums
4. add bass
and he still wouldnt know shit
legally ur right but how many people do u know of that are releasing tracks before they cleared the sample or even letting the track be known before clearing it and making a profit?
um, i'm pretty sure being ON STAGE with them mixing their monitors and talking to them about what they want done for their show qualifies as working with them
I have contact numbers for every single one of their agents, tour mangers, front of house techs and their entire show staff
but yeah, i didn't "work" with them [dunno][funny]
|mao @ this whole legitmacy of sampling thing. WTF cares. If they aint takin food off ur plate and kickin u outta benz's why does it bother u how a another man makes his money right or wrong. I personally make both composed and sample based tracks shit I compose with samples at times if u do it right aint nobody gonna tell the difference stop arguing over techincalilties lol
well don't list them in ur "resume", making it look like actually took part in one of their songs or projects... all u were was the techie, their bitch, at one show...
lets see...considering I'm A FREELANCE PA TECH/LIVE ENGINEER putting them on my resume would be a good idea...i have the festival as a listing, not the artists individually
and anyways, it's better than any of you have done in the industry...at least i've met and worked with celebrities
hardly. cats on this board actually PRODUCE tracks for "celebrities".. so get your facts str8. your just looking like a foolish little kid.
Just like you said, you put the festival on your resume, not those artists. You didn't work with the artist, you worked with the festival.
I guess that's the same thing as •••••••'s gold plaque with Pretty Ricky, INFO and Nova producing for Dipset, and Wyshmaster getting on the DTP album.
one time destinys child came to my city
there for, i lived with beyonce for a short while
so the fact that it was the biggest hip hop festival in canadian history, and all those artists were there, TALKING TO ME and PAYING ME TO BE THERE means I didn't work with them? Right
i guess if you serve food at mc donalds you're really not working for them either...you just hang out and get paid by them...:screwy:
The artists didn't pay you, the festival did.
I talked to Tyson Beckford once and my friend wanted us to take a picture with him, I guess her and I worked with him too.
mcdonalds pays you to make cheese burgers
if ti comes in and orders a big mac
even though he essentially 'payed' you for the burger
doesent mean he hired u to make burgers
theyre not cutting u checks.
