  1. Thanks for checking us out, Jim! We just released a cool version of Jingle Bells on our SoundCloud page: http://www.soundcloud.com/frenchwhorenamedbabette
  2. Dear Tom: We are good on the legality - the copyright for Jingle Bells has expired - it was written in 1857 and it is in the public domain. That's one of the reasons why we chose to record this one. Mike
  3. I have a bit of a double treat for you - we just finalized our version of Jingle Bells. It is really something very different - give it a listen and let me know what you think. You can find it on our SoundCloud page - it is the first song, along with the rest from our new album, Filth: www.soundcloud.com/frenchwhorenamedbabette If you love the tracks and need to own them, there are lots of purchase options on our site (www.fwnb.net – go to the Store page), iTunes, CDBaby, Amazon and on Sound Cloud itself (they have a Buy button), but my main goal here is to share the music with you.
  4. Cute film and the soundtrack works really well. One thing, though. Chernobyl is in Ukraine - not Russia.
  5. Hey Henning - that's a really great sound you have there. Really effective stuff.
  6. I use on all the time and it is a big part of my sound. There are a few things to keep in mind in working with them, though. First, a little tweak goes a long way on them so, adjust settings gradually to get the best effect. Second, the device is a preamp as well as a DI, so if you are going to send that to an amp, watch out for sending too hot a signal to the amp. The instructions speak of "unity gain", which is essentially the point where the volume leve of your instrument is the same whether or not the Bass Driver is engaged. Start from unity gain so you don't end up blowing speakers, etc. For recording, I use the device to eq my signal going to the amp (which is recorded with a mic) and then run the parallel output from teh Bass Driver to the board, so I get a really driving effected signal going through my amp along with a cleaner signal going straight to the board. Works well for me, but I have a bit of a driven sound. Finally, take some time to explore the device and read the instructions. At first I hated the thing but once I learned how to dial in the tone I like, the Bass Driver is a permanent part of my set up.
  7. Hey Rippinlyricist - I presume that what you did for copyrighting your song was to submit it to the US government - is that correct? That is probably a good idea (as John kind of indicated). The deal with protecting your copyright to a song (or other things) is that you need to be able to prove that you were the creator of the work (or that you otherwise have rights to the work) and when the work was created - that can be difficult to prove in some cases. That's why registration with the govt is a good idea - it provides specific recognition of when the work was created (or at lest the date it was received). In any event, copyright to a work automatically attached even if you have not registered anything with anybody, but you might run into some issues with proving things. If you want to sell your song to artists so they can record them, you are now looking at publishing. Publishers are supposed to sell your song to potential users like recording artists, so look for a publisher with a decent track record of selling songs like yours, but please be careful - publishing agreements can tie up your rights, so getting stuck with a bad publisher can cause some problems. Finally, get a lawyer to help with any contracts you might ever sign in relation to your rights to your songs. Check with the local or state bar association for entertainment lawyer referrals. Finally, congratulations on formalizing things! I hope you have a bunch of success with your songs!
  8. Thanks for the welcome! I need to get a few more posts in before I can edit my signature, apparently...
