What does it say plz?
They sampled a song by a guy called Lo-bat without permission and now the 8-bit community is up in arms.
not very cricket though is it?
They haven't actually sold the song. It's on a second myspace of theirs.
They don't seem to be very good at using other people's ideas, selling them off as their own and getting away with it.
they're actively bad at it.
They probably think that's how these things are done.
The problem with 8-bit music is that there are only a limited amount of sounds you can get from it. It would probably be wrong of CC to claim credit for that one noise.
had a very distinct sound he made in the WAV channel of the gameboy sound chip.
Not without a few people thinking "Hey this sounds like a Lo-bat song, hang on it has the same melody as well!"
BURN THE PLAGIARISING HIPSTER BASTARDS!
Its only limited by musical notes. So the melody had to be stolen too.
I've read that there's controversy surrounding that sample a swell.
...from a particular synth, so no-one can claim it as their own artistic property.
P.S. It was 50 Cent featuring Justin Timberlake and Timbaland who produced it was who was being sued.
P.P.S. Sorry to be anal.
This is why I'm not a huge fan of presets.
WHY CAN'T YOU EDIT POSTS?
sounds like the place to be!
is a sure fire way to get into a girls pudding room.
stolen segments of loads of artists music (in unreleased and released tracks) without informing any of them, stamping all over various copyright laws and making up some shit about a circuit bent atari in the process. Profiteering fucks.
