The CinemaRaven production house discovered the most used sound effect in cinema and edited a demonstration video
The film production company CinemaRaven of Denver (Colorado) recently released a super cut composed of numerous movie trailers in which the same sound effect is used : that atonal descending scale with a synthetic sound that we have already heard in almost any film science fiction of 2016.

In the introduction to the video, CinemaRaven specifies that the trailers pasted in the video The Most Overused Sound Effect in Movie Trailers (2017 film trailers cut together) are only twenty, but that the list of trailers in which the abused special effect is present is very longer.

Genelec is announcing three new products in its series The Ones , high-end of the well-known manufacturer that seeks to optimize the monitoring process from the integration of advanced calibration and compensation systems according to the room. They are two new monitors and a subwoofer, the latter so far nonexistent in the series, which now includes the renewed classic 8351 that receives an update with more compact size and better performance in the new 8351B , announced next to the new model 8361A , now the largest of the house, and finally the adaptive subwoofer W371A that wants to change the game within the company.

The Ones series has its own concept of Genelec that seeks to implement a design of three-way monitors that converge under a single signal routing point , which favors the search for signal neutrality, listening in reduced or field environments nearby, or high precision work, calibration, among others.

Genelec 835B
The 8351B expands existing technology in its predecessor to offer higher SPL (113dB), additional equalizers for room compensation, and improved response in high frequency filtering. It operates in a frequency range of 32Hz and 43kHz, with a 250-watt woofer, a mid-range of 150 watts and a tweeter of 150.

For its part, the 8361A model arrive to considerably expand the possibilities of the series, with woofer it is 500 watts, the average range of 150 and the tweeter of 150. It offers a frequency range of 30Hz to 43kHz and has the largest range dynamic, SPL of 118dB.

Genelec 8361
The W371A is a subwoofer with front and rear cones and the GLM signal configuration and calibration system, under a design specially designed to integrate with the Ones series monitors. 120 SPL, frequency range from 23Hz to 500Hz and a design with a height of just over a meter high.

Genelec The Ones calibration
As they comment in Genelec, it is not simply a complementary speaker for bass frequencies, but a revolutionary design within what has been achieved so far in systems with dedicated subwoofer, achieving great flexibility to control the propagation of low frequencies, the integration with the monitors of the series and even the control of frequencies that normally do not correspond to a subwoofer, which is usually between 85 and 150Hz at most, to lower between 18 and 25Hz. In the case of W371A we speak of a double cone with a capacity of a considerable medium range that exceeds 400Hz.

The subwoofer has three modes of operation that include flat and neutral as well as configurations for different sub location points in the monitoring room. Everything is calibrated from the dedicated software taking into account both the position of the listener and the monitor in space.

The new models of The Ones series will be available this year from the main distributors of the firm. The price is € 4140 for an individual 8351B, € 4920 for the 8361A and € 9120 for the W371A.

On Thursday 4 July, Netflix will be streaming the third season of ‘ Stranger Things ‘, one of his most successful TV series and, consequently, one of the most awaited. The good news, for those who loved the adventures set in Hawkins and the Upside Down, is that the critics reviewed it more than positively. The time has therefore come to prepare ourselves for the vision, summarizing what is worth knowing, but without making spoilers.

Stranger Things, summary of previous seasons
Brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, creators of the TV series and shorwunner of the first two seasons, also return to the third and continue to tell what moves between the streets and houses of the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, and what is hiding below the surface, in a disturbing world populated by monsters.

At the center of the new adventures, set during the summer of 1985, we find the protagonists of all time, who in the meantime have grown up, strengthened the bonds of friendship, weaved new ones and, in some cases, started a relationship loving. All of them will be forced to come to terms with the fact that “evil never ends, evolves” (as stated in the official synopsis).

The cast
On the adult front, Winona Ryder (who plays the mother of two of the young protagonists) and David Harbor (the head of the local police department) return.

The kids have once again the faces of Millie Bobby Brown (plays Eleven / Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Noah Schnapp (Will) and Sadie Sink (Max).

The older ones are Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan), Joe Keery (Steve) and Dacre Montgomery (Billy).

Among the new entries we highlight Priah Ferguson (Erica, Lucas’s little sister) and Maya Hawke, daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke and whose character is described as “an alternative girl”.

The Stranger Things 3 trailer

HOW IS THE SEASON 3, THE REVIEWS
The criticism welcomed ‘Stranger Things 3’ quite well: on metacritic the average rating is 71/100. A first aspect that is worth underlining is the difference compared to the second season: in general the third was judged to be superior, but also lighter and more enjoyable, and characterized by a more than satisfactory ending.

A further thing that is important to emphasize is that season 3 adds relatively little to the already established narrative universe: some have considered this a defect, because they would have liked the Hawkins / Sottosopra relationship to be expanded in new ways. Others have appreciated that the Duffer brothers have not wanted to exaggerate, risking to heal.

SEASON 4 AND 5?
Missing official confirmations, but Matt and Ross Duffer have previously stated that ‘Stranger Things’ will end after the fourth or fifth season. They will probably be more precise in a while.

HOW TO SEE THE TV SERIES
The third season of ‘Stranger Things’ consists of eight episodes with a duration ranging between 40 and 60 minutes and will be published online July 4, leaving the freedom to choose how and when to watch them. Netflix suggests that viewers are subscribers at least fourteen years old.

Production music on Social Media

The music in the stories of Instagram has the potential to be a new and powerful channel of discovery for songs and artists, although for now it is not a real streaming service to play the songs.

Instagram added that the “Music in Stories” function will be available in some “selected” countries starting today, with a global launch scheduled for “the short future”. The Instagram spokesperson said the service will be launched in Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States.

For Instagram, today’s launch is the first result of Facebook’s licensing offerings, including those with Universal Music in December 2017, Sony Music in January 2018 and Warner Music in March 2018, as well as with the independent companies Merlin, Beggars Group, PIAS and InGrooves. These agreements concerned the use of music in clips uploaded by users on Facebook , but also on Instagram, Facebook Messenger and Oculus VR.

Producers these days have also found greener pastures in providing audio and sound design for game development. Retro Revolution: here comes the second game from the POCO Game Developer Academy. POCO, born of Xiaomi , seems to be following a particularly rich line of contents. After holding the bench with Xiaomi Pocophone F1 , the best buy for quality price of 2018, the company extended its range of action in the tech field and did it with the Game Development Academy .

The game development academy presented its second title: Retro Revolution which follows Fantasy Glider , the first game produced.

While Fantasy Glider is a simple tap game, there is still no particular information on Retro Revolution, but one thing we can imagine: the game will stimulate the imagination of 8-bit nostalgics. POCO’s initiative in this sense is commendable: in fact, the company has worked to bring together a team of developers who will be cited personally when the game is launched. Retro Revolution will be available soon on Google Play and Mi Apps.

10 Places to Get Royalty Free Music

Let’s face it, it’s really annoying to have a great video project, but to know to have to tribulate to look for some original and beautiful royalty free music that does not violate any copyright law , especially knowing that most of the time you’ll have to compromise editing, or be satisfied with a soundtrack not really “bright”.

And so on there to search on Google “Free music sites” or “Where to download royalty free music”, coming very likely to a slew of fictitious results of sites that in reality or are not really free, or have soundtracks that hardly you will insert in your videos.

After all, there is nothing more frustrating than working hard on a movie, only to end up with the usual result, namely that YouTube blocks it because of a copyright infringement on music (we all know very well this feeling).

So do not panic and make a definitive list of the best online platforms where you can find royalty free music perfect for your video content. Here is a list of ten fantastic sites where you can find, download and use royalty-free music for your movies to share online.

  1. Incompetech
    If you want to start your search with the right foot, the advice is to start from Incompetech , site created by the composer Kevin MacLeod with many tracks, starting from the horror soundtracks, rock, pop and even the polka, all divided strictly for gender and atmosphere. MacLeod only asks for a credit in the video, a more than legitimate compromise.
  2. DanoSongs
    Do you know Dan-O, a composer who offers his original songs for free download on DanoSongs.com ? The royalty free music can be used free of charge in your videos, provided that in this case you also provide the link to your website or credit it in your work .
  3. Moby Free
    Instead who does not know Moby? Yes, just him, the American musician and singer, author of the famous album Play . Well! If you want to use the music of this well-known artist for free, the right site for you is Moby Gratis . In MobyGratis.com the music is free, provided that your video project is non-profit and not for commercial purposes.
  4. Free Soundtrack Music
    FreeSoundtrackMusic.com ! It would be enough to translate the name of this site to understand what it offers . Muscia royalty free to use in movies, YouTube videos, games or other multimedia productions. In this case, to be completely honest, part of the music on the site is paid. However, many of these tracks are free and can be easily downloaded and used in your projects.
  5. ccMixter
    ccMixter more than a music site is a community where you can find many tracks that fall under the Creative Commons license . The site allows you to listen to music, create mashups and more. Please note that some Creative Commons licenses may require credit within your video.
  6. Partners in Rhyme
    In Partners In Rhyme you will find music loops, sound effects, midi files and much more. Again, watch out for cases where the music on Partners In Rhyme is paid, but having said that, they have a satisfying selection of music loops and complete tracks available for free download.
  7. PacDV
    Even PacDV offers a solution similar to that described previously: that free music and sound effects for all your multimedia works such as video and audio, in exchange for mention and visibility ricollegandoti to their site or listing them in the credits.
  8. Public Domain 4U
    Public Domain 4U is a great site to find digital audio content that no longer enjoy the intellectual property rights associated with them , either because they have expired or because they have been lost. Music, videos and other content in the public domain can be used in any way, for example by inserting them in the videos you want to share online.

Much of the music is “dated” (the music of the early 1900s is now in the public domain if the copyright has never been renewed), but there are also more modern tracks that are free and with the permission of the artist.

  1. Musopen
    Musopen , like Public Domain 4U, provides music with expired copyright. On the site page they say, “We provide free recordings, sheet music and textbooks to the public, without copyright restrictions.” In short, our mission is to free music . ” Quite clear, no ?! In Musopen you can search for music by composer, performer, instrument or period. And it’s great, especially if you’re looking for classical music.
  2. Beatpick
    As they say in the homeland of the Union Jack, ” And last but not least ” Beatpick , which features a large selection of licensed music that can be used for free if you are editing a non-commercial or non-profit video. When you have chosen the song you want to use, click on “License Song” and select “Non Commercial projects” , and easy-peasy lemon squeezy , that’s it.

What’s Up With Music Licenses on Facebook Going Head to Head with Spotify and YouTube

After months and months spent playing on the streets in London, after having conquered his fans one by one, after covering almost all the songs on the radio, here he hears his big moment: an email from Warner Music , but not is a record contract, but a warning for copyright infringement, at the same time was banned by Facebook, with the promise that if it will violate the copyright again erase its page forever.

Although differently from his expectations, it was certainly his highest moment of popularity on the net. All this thanks to a 15-second video uploaded on Facebook where he runs Castle on the Hill . Why all this fury?

In reality it is not a real fury, but a rethinking towards a too loose attitude towards those who make covers, especially on a platform (Facebook) that does not provide, to date, any form of monetization or distribution of copyright .

If I publish a track published, I go to exploit the work of someone else’s ingenuity that must necessarily be rewarded: I can do it on YouTube, where the system provides revenue sharing (percentage of video advertising revenue + 2 euro paid by Siae / Soundreef every 10 thousand views) and of course on the Digital Service Provider (Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer), but not on Facebook.

Charlotte Campbell, in its own way, has been a watershed because from that moment work began to ensure the Zuckerberg creature the necessary licenses to host music edited without risking sanctions from the recording industry.

The first step was to establish a dedicated office in Menlo Park called Music Business Development & Partnerships, run by Tamara Hrivnak – a past in Warner and Google where he played a similar role.

Facebook is seeking agreements with majors and independents in order to legally host songs and covers made by their users. However, it has not yet released official news regarding the type of monetization offered.

Surely it will be a program similar to that used by the YouTube competitor : pre-roll advertising and on-screen banners, but we must surely expect some news or innovation. Also because Zuckerberg has repeatedly admitted to want to focus on video not only from the point of view of user-user experience, but also to turn them into advertising space, such as direct reports that could be interrupted by real commercials.

To date, the Music Business Development & Partnerships office has entered into agreements with the three majors : Universal in December 2017, Sony in January and lastly the Warner, where they admit they are proud of having established a “holistic partnership that will cover both the music is the editions, in order to offer the user a social experience such as videos and messages “. Even the most interesting comment is released by the head of the Global Digital Strategy of the major. “The Facebook team is creating an incredibly innovative product”, a small anticipation that, however, simply increases the expectations of social music geeks.

With the majors on board, Facebook can already start making the first tests. However, he still lacks a large part of the market, the one represented by independent labels . These have a remarkable value that in 2017 stood at 4.8 billion dollars. To these we must add the “small change” made by self-production, 472 million dollars. But in Menlo Park they already have an agreement with Merlin that represents over 20 thousand labels, or 12% of the total market.

Then there is the technical aspect: how will it be possible to check what the over 2 billion users do on Facebook with the songs published? And how do you recognize them to reward those entitled?

YouTube, for example, uses audio fingerprints, a super-compressed format that delivers digital distributors. Once the mini file is received, a bot scans the videos uploaded daily looking for and matching the monetization program with the right holders.

Facebook could do the same, entering so heavily in the video streaming market, and – why not? – even in the audio one, actually going to harm the dominant positions of YouTube and Spotify .

But let’s not forget Cambridge Analytica and the fact that Facebook is not the best safe where to place our data. The scandal did not affect behavior. According to a survey conducted by Reuters / Ipsos between April 26th and 30th, only 1% of the interviewed users canceled their account. 4% instead stopped using the social network. However, the interesting figure is 26% which has increased its virtual activity, accompanied by 49% who have not changed their habits.

Facebook will have to convince the industry and musicians to be able to manage their data and produce reports. Above all, you should not use the fair use alibi to not pay the owners of the work fairly.

Charlotte Campbell will therefore be able to use Facebook serenely to promote her musical career, without the fear of losing her own page and years of work. He will have to wait for the Silicon Valley developers to produce this tool as quickly as possible, before the market finds new behaviors.

Related news about Spotify. Spotify advertisements become interactive. The free version of Spotify will allow you to interact with advertisements through voice commands: the test of functionality at the start in the USA.

Immediately after announcing the achievement of 100 million subscribers , Spotify focuses attention on those 117 million users who instead rely monthly on the free version of the service, accepting to listen to the reproduction of advertisements between tracks: l advertising becomes interactive, with the introduction of support for voice commands .

The feature is currently being tested for a small circle of US subscribers (only if support for voice commands has been activated in the Android or iOS apps) and, at least initially, all you can do is start playing a playlist or podcast within the platform. Below is an example, with the advertising that suggests the streaming listening of the Stay Free podcast: The Story of the Clash of the Spotify Original series, intended for those who want to know the career of Joe Strummer’s band.

As you can see, a microphone icon appears at the bottom of the screen. The advertisement leaves the user a few seconds to respond and if the latter pronounces the “Play now” command it starts listening to the sponsored content . Otherwise, in case of silence or other words, a notification sound is played and the microphone is deactivated. Users still have a way to customize the behavior of the feature in the application settings.

The will seems to be to allocate a similar form of advertising not only to smartphones, but also to all those devices that integrate a virtual assistant , from smart speakers to smart displays with Alexa or Google Assistant. In this way, Spotify can aim to further expand its range of action, monetizing the provision of the service to those who do not wish to subscribe to a Premium account but want to listen to the tracks in streaming by accepting in exchange for being the recipients of the advertisements.

Among the other features put in place by the platform also the customization of editorial playlists by ad hoc IA algorithms designed to meet the tastes of everyone. It is through initiatives of this type that the group aims to keep its leadership in the sector built so far, keeping at a distance a competition that has no intention of watching.

6 Radio Sweepers Nonstop Music

So there is a joke about radio station IDs and the irony that they remind listeners how they play nonstop music while “essentially” interrupting their listening with a voiceover.

But that is the point of station identification, you have got to grab the listener’s attention because you need to tell them something.

Sweepers are effective at this as they can be segued in between songs.

So the river flow of music isn’t interrupted, but you get to see a ferry passing by with a big sign that says “you are listening to nonstop music”.

In a world of relatively short listener attention spans you have got to do it quick but at the same time delivery the message home.

Here are some quick sweeps for you.

We dont stop the music

Continous hit music

Nonstop and back to back

Free flowing hit music marathon

Going full throttle with nonstop hits

One hit after another
