Sa Mowar
« on: January 25, 2019, 22:33:38 »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQopUR63aVk&index=1&list=OLAK5uy_lWQRtGyPRG0gNkYStiQlHIMRX2KaYdsN8
i was shazaming one of the already identified musics from tom's hardware guide videos and this album came up.
this sa mowar guy is basically claiming some tracked modules as their's and selling them commercially.
the only music i could recognize is dj ecera-alkarinques haran

is jay newingham back as sa mowar?

EDIT: thx axxy for identifying all songs sa mowar had ripped! go to page 2 for the list

The proper course of action here would be to contact the original creators of those tracks so they can at the very least contact Spinnup to have the album taken off from their distribution service.

Uh, how do you contact the original creators if they haven't been identified?
Only one, DJ Ecera, has been identified so far.

There is little you can do without having a proof that a song was made by another person anyway, so the kinda obvious answer is "you have to figure out who made the other tunes".

most of them sounds like an .it module, so im kinda convinced that all of them were in .it format

Could just as well be XM, it's just that general late-90s IT/XM sound.

Not only could they be XMs or ITs, they can also be S3Ms, or even MODs (whether it is Amiga or extended version). Come to think of it, they can be in any sequenced sample format, even with the characteristic '90s module' sound.

Technically, yes. However, if you listen closely, you will find lots of details that speak for a typical IT / XM module of that era, e.g. wild ping-pong panning envelopes that would be extremely tedious to do in MOD / S3M and in particular would not allow for any other commands to be used at the same time. In practice that means that it's unlikely that they are MOD / S3M files.
But it doesn't really matter because I doubt that anyone is going to go through the entirety of all XM / IT files from that era on TMA to look for the originals. A much more promising attempt would be to identify a set of potential authors based on the style of the tracks and then download all their stuff and compare it.
