Hopefully getting ready for a big influx of new reason users.  Seriously.  They should pay Adam and Brent for Totally Fuzzed Up.

That list of tutorials (along with the James Bernard videos) is what convinced to spend $400 on a DAW, and made me a big fan of Propellerhead.

Why?  Adam and Brent waived all their rights.

With Discover Propellerhead is attempting to follow the tried-and-true business model of the internet.  Their customers create the content and Propellerhead reaps the reward.  Think about it, most of the really successful technology companies work that way.  The real money is in acting as a middleman to leverage the unpaid creative talents and contributions of others.

Good to see those tutorials back officially in some form. They were awesome.

Funny you mention. I was on the blog last night and came across some great articles I've never seen. Learned more things & stuff :crazy:
Aaaand then I scrolled down and saw good old Ernst and his article. You gotta love the strategically placed guitar in his picture.

My guess is that they're just trying to offer a spot on their website for all of the content that's been collected over the years.

Except for the right of ownership, for which they still hold and can use their creations (and any others that are curated via Discover) in any commercial way they would like.

You know I'm a bit confused by this.  How is waiving all your rights except for right of ownership any different from waiving all your rights and putting something in the public domain?  Isn't posting stuff on Discover in a very real sense functionally equivalent to putting something in the public domain.


Any one of us can take a Chopin sonata and print and sell the sheet music, or perform it and sell tickets and a CD, or make it the theme music to a game we write.  We don't have the "right of ownership" but what difference does it make?  I mean if Chopin were still alive he could also make money on his own works, even if every one else could as well, right?

I'm not trying to be difficult but I'm really trying to see how "right of ownership" is really any kind of right at all?

Also, I'm not disparaging Discover here.  If people enjoy collaborating as a fun and have a good time with it, great!  No problem over here.
