Cartel Coins

Postby ChastainCriswell » May 18th, 2009, 1:52 am

Hello everyone,

I have been working on a project now for almost a year ... and I think it is time to let the magic world know a little about this exciting project!

I call them Cartel Coins ... please have a look at the teaser on my web site. Click the Sneek Peek below.

Thanks!

How much did you have to pay for the rights to use that music!

Bet it set you back a few bucks!

If the Cartel Coins has something to manage that last coin vanish... all the better.

Intersting to find that Coins Across described as an "age old classic". Not sure if that's flattering though - still have a few hairs left on my head and don't feel entirely old yet. :D Hey Chris, has it been an age yet? (he's not old either BTW).

LOL ... Mr. Townsend ... I will change the vernacular if it is offensive ... I just know Three Fly no touch has been the holy grail for your original idea for years. As for the music .... I am certain in it's current form is not infringing one the original. it has been altered to release it from copyright. But once again if that is a serious issue I can fix that too. As for the last coin vanish ... very possible ... I am just teasing the uses these coins can have. Hope you enjoy them.

Blimey!

I bet all those hip hop records who have been sued for a much shorter samples wish they knew that before they were sued! Would have saved them a fortune!

I am being a snarky git, yes, but come on, it's not been altered at all has it?

Joking aside, a commercial release deserves the author not to steal someone's music. IMHO. There are enough youtube clips with kids nicking music. A professional should pay. You wouldn't steal the DVD cases! ;)

It's taken care of and yes I changed a lot ... I removed some vocals ... I also slowed the pitch down .... I also added some noise to make it sound a bit grimmey ... but ... it was encoded with Windows software so that could have distorted it more ... however I am taking care of it. THanks for the heads up.

I'm not being belligerent, but what software is there that removes vocals? I'd love to play around with something like that.

Still, us discussing it is bumping the thread for you! :)

LOL .... Thanks!

No the software I use don't "Remove" vocals more so as cover them up or muffle them out. makes them undistinguishable. (wow did I spell that right?)

However I took care of that ... the new update will have royalty free music on it :) Thanks seriously ... I told myself if one person mentioned it then I would assume it was questionable. So it is :)

First of all, I assume you mean 12:01 am JUNE 30th, not July 31st.

Second of all, I assume you'll be communicating when you ship them. You may be waiting to get our feedback, but we're waiting to get the coins!
