Oh, Hai Pete

Remember when I mentioned a song I recorded called Shelf Life? Sure you do…

Well anyway, thanks to the Creative Commons license I used (Attribution) others can put it to use, and now someone has…

Gabe has just uploaded Oh, Hai Pete, a little number he sent me via email last week, which I somehow talked him into publishing for real.

Enjoy…

Shelf Life

I created another song and got it uploaded to Ourmedia using SpinXpress.

It’s called Shelf Life.

I’m getting a lot more familiar with GarageBand, and experimenting a bit now. I even recorded a few guitar tracks, the bass track, and a vocal track (which you won’t recognize as vocals) for this one. The drums mostly came from a loop.

A Song at Ourmedia

I’ve been bothered by the fact that Ourmedia has been fubar’d for me for quite some time. I mean, I was an early user, and a good supporter, but when my account no longer allowed me to upload (due to some weird problem on their end in which they seemed to believe my archive.org credentials were incorrect) I pretty much stopped using Ourmedia. My videos (and some audio) were going to blip.tv, and nowhere else.

So I did the only thing I could… created another email address, and registered it at Ourmedia, The Internet Archive, and SpinXpress. (Yup, now you also need to use another service/piece of software. SpinXpress is recommended to actually upload your media files. It’s a pain, but it actually worked!

That’s the long complaining version of saying, I created a song. It’s called 13 Diodes, and you can find it at 13 Diodes at Ourmedia or 13 Diodes at The Internet Archive. (Creative Commons Attribution License.)

Anyway, let me know what you think of the song. Most of the music I’ve been creating lately has been put into the videos I do, but I may start playing around with just doing songs on their own if I feel like it.

Free Loops

I’ve been playing around with Garageband quite a bit lately, and having a good time. I’ve started to look for other loops I can use, but the problem is, all the “free loops” I’m finding out there always say something like this:

All of our free Garageband loops are free for personal use.

And that’s it. I mean “Personal Use” doesn’t mean a lot to me. (I assume it means non-commercial, but is that just my assumption? Can I freely publish works I create with these “free” loops?) I want things laid out in terms I can easily understand, perhaps using the Creative Commons licenses. Is there a listing of Apple Loops somewhere that are available with CC licenses? So I can easily see what is attribution, or non-commercial, etc?
