[Not a rip] Sparta External Remix (hybrid_sparta.it)
« on: September 28, 2018, 01:02:09 »

That is a bad chiptune version of "Hybrid Song 2:20 (original by Quazar)" now it's "Sparta External Remix"

This module has a rip of Hybrid Song 2:20 by Quazar.
I see that there's an all original patterns changed just like a hacker including the samples. The original XM module turns into IT Module, which is a module format conversions. So, that's too worse because of thinking just lame!

Literally the only thing that's not made by Clop are the samples... Sure it's inspired by Quazar's module, but to hear it and immediately think it's just a conversion (HINT: IT'S OBVIOUSLY NOT), give it a 2/10 (!), and report Clop as a ripper... Seriously dude, what the fuck? You're just wasting everyone's time. Once again.

It's okay to create a new module and use someone else's samples. It's not even just the original module with some changes, it's an entirely different module that just happens to use the original's samples.

How do you think you have the right to give this a 2 when your uploads are nothing but rule-breaking MIDI conversions? Really???

The only thing that stayed the same are the samples. Pretty hypocritical to slap a bad rating to bring yet another member's rating down when half of the modules on your page are MIDI conversions.

Carry on!

The filename even hints at the fact that it's supposed to be a homage to Hybrid Song. A clearer indication of the sample sources would have been much appreciated, but in either case it's not a rip or plagiarism. Bad rating deleted.

I will jump in and say that many modules do take samples from various sources, including other modules, so actually crediting the samples themselves isn't that common in tracker modules.

Either way, using others' samples is not conversion, and taking small instrument samples from other modules isn't really enough to claim as plagiarism.

In the very early days it wasn't - but even in the mid-90s you already find tons of modules with properly credited samples. Every self-respecting module artist should declare their sample sources in some way or another, in my opinion.

I guess it mostly boils down to which type of modules you listen to, but my point still stands that taking the instrument samples from a tracker module isn't really plagiarising it.
