If you recorded the vocal hook yourself, then select the Exclusive vocal option when uploading the track.
If you use loops and samples, you must make them unrecognizable and therefore unique. Provided that you follow these guidelines, your track can conceivably consist entirely of samples.
The melodic loop is used in an unaltered/original form. It is forbidden.
One-shot samples of guitar chords are used to build the melody. This is allowed, as the result is an original melody.
A melodic loop is taken to create an original melody. It is transposed two semitones up, the rhythm is completely redone, and some notes are reversed. Therefore it's a completely original melody and is allowed.
From the original musical loop, the producer only changed the order of the chords. This is minor processing and is prohibited.
Make your own decision that does not violate the conditions described above.
Frequently asked questions
- Am I allowed to use clippings, one-shots, or melodies, either from films, songs, YouTube videos, or similar sources?No, because the rights to such materials belong to other authors.
It is wrong to think that it will somehow “work out.” It is illegal.
Such actions will lead you to being banned from Soundvase.
- What happens if I use a pre-made melody in unaltered form, or with minor processing? Is everything really that strict?Yes. The reputation of the Soundvase platform is more important than profit lost from one producer.
Don't risk it!
