I'm not sure why you'd want to listen to it (it's the dog's breakfast, I tell you), but sure:

https://jrhillma.bandcamp.com/

It's the only thing I've ever uploaded to bandcamp, so it shouldn't be hard to find. ;)

So you sampled and then bitched about being blocked as if you hadn't?

If so that's pretty douchey.

I did not use a sample from "Wait (the Whisper Song)" in any version, nor did I sample anything by the Ying Yang Twins. This is what I was blocked for and is patently incorrect.

If anybody can recognize the sample I *might* have used, I will gladly de-post the song in shame.

Good luck! :lol:

You have to feed that message into the soundcloud sample analysis algorithm on the command line in order for that to work out

It would be funny of thousands of users deliberately uploaded material that would make their software flag the track, yet the track itself be completely and legally sound.

And then have these thousands of people put in disputes. It might have them re-think their method of blocking tracks. Like maybe having a human somewhere in the equation to determine what should be blocked.

I have almost the opposite problem with YouTube. I used VisualJockey and Sonic Candle to make a 'light show' video for one of my tracks. The Performing Rights Society claimed (presumably via some automatic scanning code by Google) that I'd used some (presumably audio) material owned by a third party. The audio is all mine, even down to the synth patches, except for a couple of short royalty-free sound effects. The T&Cs for the video apps state specifically that anything I create with them is mine. The background image I used for the video was created from a still image that NASA made available for public use a month or three ago.

I've disputed the claim, but whenever I go to look at my video I see the text "Acknowledged third party content." Maybe the YouTube staff think that "disputed" = "acknowledged". Might have to wait until Feb 22nd to find out what's going on.

I'd understand it if I'd used a white noise sample created by Brian Eno...
