    A cold day in hell

    As if composers don't have it tough enough already. Of course, no one who needs "good music" will settle for that, but it's still an amusing if not disturbing attempt.

    This is probably mainly going to appeal to radio DJ's doing spots and types that already use needle drop so I doubt it will greatly impact any working composers who aren't affected already. I'd like to hear the results...

    I think that the kind of tv producers who use that stuff would never call a composer...even if that program doesn't exist.

    Not much to worry IMO. Anyway I would like to listen to some "demos"

    hmm --I thought this thing was actually going to compose which might have been entertaining. As it stands, it's a bit hard to see the point....

    This is my favorite part of the article:

    "As filmmakers create custom music with Cinescore, it is expected that they will claim lucrative ASCAP and BMI writer and publisher performance royalties on the music they create, as they seek to enhance the financial return from films and exercise more control over the creation of score music for their films. "

    Man I spent a ton of time and money learning my craft and buying soft synths and all I really had to do to get those "lucrative ASCAP and BMI writer and publisher performance royalties" was to buy this program.

    So here's the deal. I'll buy it 1st. I'll make a ton of money, er sorry, "lucrative ASCAP and BMI writer and publisher performance royalties" and retire to a private island with Pam Anderson and Jennifer Connely. Then I'll send word (via smoke signals) and some one else can buy it and do the same. Sounds good to me

    PS Doesn't this sound alot like the program "Smartsound"?

    That's a shame. I'm sure dpasdernick won't settle with getting only Jennifer Connelly. Man has to have principles.

    For what it's worth, composers have always had it tough, except for the 10% who are a)talented, or b) know someone, or c) both.

    This program won't change the way we work in the main, but there's always someone out there who'll try to cut corners. Creative professionals in many fields have always been an obvious target for the lesser skilled. Fact of life really.
    If it takes off, and i doubt it at the moment, you may see a lot of smaller films with generic scores hit the market, as directors and producers try to cut the muso out of the game, thinking they can do it all themselves, and have 'total' creative control. (and the ensuing savings in expenses.)

    And i wouldn't rest on the notion of 'anyone who needs good music either'......
    If the money men think they'll get away with it with audiences, it has as much of a chance as any composer.

    Nature of the world we live in.

    Film's always been a commodity for mainstream (generally), never more so than now. Like a conveyor belt in a factory, if you reduce the manpower, and get the robots in, the bottom line improves, so any temptation gets looked at.

    We are fortunate there's still those with visions of 'godlike immortality' who make films for a sense of making their place in history, or preserving an historical moment, but they're a bit thinner on the ground than they used to be, probably overwhelmed by the 'studio machine'.
