From an old posting of mine in 2014. Seems nothing has changed since then:

I wrote:Some time ago I signed up at hearthis.at only to discover that with an upload you give all the rights to your music into their hands. When I asked for a reason to this license policy they returned that this would be the only way to avoid legal hassle and they begged me to trust them - which I didn't. In my opinion you are giving them carte blanche if you upload anything on their site. I will never do it.

hearthis.at in their terms of use wrote:Grant of Rights. You shall retain all of your ownership rights in your User Submissions.

Notice the words "perpetual" and "irrevocable" in connection with any future "sublicensee" of hearthis.at. Crazy!
Also compare it to SoundCloud's Terms of Use and you will see the difference.


Apart from that — congrats to the winners!
Have a nice day

For me the vote was very difficult due to the large number of good tracks.
Unfortunately, some cool tracks were not even in the top ten. I really liked the tracks by Mark Edwards Sounds, Peter H., eraze the borders and Generaldiomedes.

Thanks asi4...that's good to read. Actually I have your track, eraze the borders and that of the General also in my top ten...similar taste it seems ;-) Thanks again.
And congratulations to the winners...

Didn't know the site. A close look at their terms of use though reveals a word to word copy of hearthis.at. See section "3.2 License" of https://www.orfium.com/terms-of-use/ WTF! :eek: :-x

Congratulations to all winners!

Also thank you all for your generous votes despite my silly approach :D Although my rank stacks pretty much in the middle it's my highest so far and I feel really proud about that.

I really liked this VST and I'll definitely use it for my future creations. Also I think it's really cool that Taron won this month not only because he deserved by making it so unique but also because he had the most difficult position out of us all. I mean all the debugging, explaining and taking in consideration all the critique. In my opinion it even overcomes advantage of using his own synth.
KO :ud:

@Ruedi - yes I did see the terms were almost identical - my reading though is that with reference to "your user content", you give them permission to "broadcast" it as they see fit on their platform. The bit I didn't like too much was that they could amalgamate your content with other content - so I guess they are thinking about e.g. a "easy listening" stream where they bring together content from loads of artists - and you have no control over this at all. But all in all, it's not a bad site, just perhaps they have dodgey business ethics - who knows how to sort the legal gobbledygook!

Seems we have quite a good deal with Soundcloud, even with the shortcomings. Hope it stays ... but then,
IUMA and many early "mp3.com styled" sites bit the dust. Probably the same will happen with many of the sites which offer streaming services.

Congrats to the well deserved winners :tu:

There were some really nice tunes. Like Taron I especially enjoyed zarf's song - so beautiful! :love:

You're gonna pass? Could at least grab a satyatunes skin, spice up your rig.

Guess if it's my turn I'll go for one of the synths. Diversion if that isn't picked yet.
