Topic: Bricks In Motion Sound Library - Thanks For Your Contributions!
UPDATE: PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE READING ON!
As it seems there has been some confusion regarding what is "acceptable" content,
I have prepared a short chart that should answer your questions.
SOUND SOURCE WILL IT BE ACCEPTED?
Sounds or music
recorded from copyrighted NO
films, movies, cartoons, and TV
music recorded or ripped from video game NO
discs, console games, multiplayer online games, and the like?
Sounds someone else made? NO
The demo music that came with my music NO
Tapings of copyrighted concerts? NO ]
Original content recorded and edited by me, YES! ]
on my own recorder (DAT, MiniDisc, solid state recorder,
reel-to-reel), or music composed and arranged by me without
using pre-made loops?
Please read all of these guidelines carefully before submitting! If you're in a hurry, the important stuff is in red.]
Bricks In Motion.com is in the process of developing a sound and music library for use by the community.
We are looking for people who are interested in contributing quality sound effects that are solely their original content.]
If you have a sound you wish to submit, please follow these guidelines:
-It is extremely important that you do not submit a sound that you didn't make.] Any and all content submitted must be original and produced entirely by yourself.
-The sound should be formatted at a minimum quality level of 44,100 Hz, 16 bit].
- Sounds should preferably be in an uncompressed PCM format (WAV]), though MP3] is accepted as well.
-Please have your nick] listed as the "Artist" in the ID3 tag, and "Bricks In Motion.com Sound Library" as the "Album". In addition, include your sound's title in the "Title" field and the year you recorded the sound in the "Year" field. Also, please include a brief description of the sound in the Comments section of the ID3 tag.
-When submitting multiple files that are related (i.e. several different versions of the same sound), please place them into a ZIP or RAR archive folder] before sending them.
-Before submitting, ask yourself, "Is this a sound that I would want to use in one of my own films?"]Also, please keep in mind that once you submit a sound, Bricksinmotion.com will have full rights to distribute the sound.]
In addition, if someone uses your sound in a film, they only need to credit the Bricks In Motion.com Sound Library, not your username.]You will, however, be credited within, at least, the sound file itself.
-When recording, try to record as much of the original sound as possible.] Try to capture that sound alone without background noise or unwanted sounds (i.e. telephones ringing, babies crying, etc.). The exception is if you are recording background noise, in which case you want to record everything that is going on around you(i.e. home, restaurant, office), as long as it maintains the mood of the environment you are trying to record. Also, please make sure your sound clip contains only the sound itself, not a long delay before and after.
- To submit a sound, please compose a brief PM to me here]. In your message, please link to your sound as hosted on a third-party media sharing site,] such as Mediafire, MegaShare, RapidShare, FileSonic, or Filestube. Your sound will be reviewed and if it is accepted, you will receive a PM back saying so, with a link to your uploaded sound included. If it is not accepted, you will receive a PM explaining why. Please contain all other questions about the submission process, the sound library or anything else related to this thread. Thanks!
-As a final note, keep in mind that even if your sound meets or exceeds the minimum technical standards (meaning it is a good quality recording) it will still be judged on how well it captures the sound itself, and will not necessarily be accepted.]
