    I see a lot of people complaining about the fact that people take their loops and don't credit them or that they only want people to use their loops in non-commercial activities. You read the terms & conditions when you joined. When the loop is uploaded, it is royalty free and no credit is required. Don't get me wrong, when someone credits me for my loop its cool because they didn't need to do that but they did anyway. But that doesn't mean i feel entitled to it. You don't get a special pass because you think your loop is really good or whatever. This community works if everyone understands what they are getting themselves into when they upload. If you need to, read the t&c again to familiarize yourself with the rules.

    Lets do better,

    Welcome to 2018 where everyone is offended by everything, entitled, and respect is a thing of the past. Read, What's that?

    I guess what most people mean is it would be nice if people showed a bit of decency and gave credit where it's due but as phatkatz has kinda already said, these people don't show any decency and not only that, they want to claim it as their own work!! I think it's the reason why people don't give credit is what they're complaining about and I agree with them on that. Though I get it from the other side that they are free to use so if you don't like it, don't upload I s'pose.

    Fact is though, even if they were treated in the same way as acapellas and not permitted to be used for commercial releases, they'd still be used for commercial releases - the same as the acapellas are.

    Phatkatz4 has it very much correct! These days, it seems that everyone wants something for nothing, especially something that they think they will profit from. It may sound conservative, coming from me, but I partially blame the hard drugs.

    Lemonization is also correct from my POV. To the point where I have considered releasing everything original which I have done, or will do, under creative commons licensing. I think that I could probably make money from recording, mixing, and mastering - but the odds are that my music will always go over peoples' heads, a bit like an aeroplane.

    you know i used a voice sample from this site and gave credit to the owner of that sample and full song and didn't reply so what's the point lol

    I do like honesty and loyalty etc but to be fair where does that get us in the real world at times?

    I think acapellas are a lot more personal and I understand the want for credit in those situations, and by no means do I think credit is a bad thing at all as Ive said its nice to get credit. I made this post because recently i've seen some pretty big posts in these forums where people are outraged and feel like they have a right to credit and that their livelihood is being stolen from them. Im just saying you shouldve known what you were getting youself into when you posted, you can only be upset at yourself for not being careful enough instead of whinging.

    Nailed it Masz. I love the posts about legal action and suing the pants off the offenders, when in reality you can't get blood from a stone.

    Nothing posted on the internet is safe. It is extremely hard to control what you let loose on the internet.

    But on the other hand, if you are the type that uses people's stuff often, giving them credit is the least you can do, because that's the best way to encourage them to upload more of their good stuff.

    One of the reasons i dont often use royalty free loops for commercial productions it is good practicing material for upcoming producers though! by the the way as producer is it really mandatory to use Always loops in your productions?

    Still people dont read the FAQ here.

    the Loops in the Loops and Samples Section are Royalty free

    the acapella's on looperman are not Royalty free and copyrighted.

    have a nice day

    some might not know how to produce their own loops or not be able to play an instrument so well, just saying :)

    then why calling yourself a producer if you cant produce your own sound!

    actually on the other hand. i guess everyone can call themself a producer. We all produce shit and pee every day :)

    true what you say but is the definition of a producer is to produce and maybe that might not always be from their own original making but from say loops that may have been used they can be called a producer because they have produced the final created product as in which case this so happens to be a music track

    ok let's put this another way and this might sound hilarious but here goes

    say someone wants to make a smoothie, now they didn't grow the bananas or strawberries etc but have since bought that and now made the smoothie and in which case have now produced a finished product from something that they didn't originally create and in this case grow

    oh i'm done lol with my 5 mins of rambling i'm off to shit and piss hahaha :D
