Hi folks,
somebody uploads sound effects to IS?
Just wanted to upload several hundred wav's and I sadly saw, a talent release must be uploaded with every audio. This is ridiculous, why they need talent release for bicycle rings, door opening/closing, etc. sounds??? For sure it's more work to complete, scan and manage talent releases than the actual work with the audio recording...
I'm missing something?
Or they accept a generic talent release and that's it?

Although for music pieces or singing it's somehow normal to have a talent release, it's overcomplicated to complete/scan/upload tons of writing just for a bicycle ring or cricket sound... As always, IS likes to complicate the simple things.

If it's not too much, can I ask you to send me (in private) a generic TR that worked for you?
Or at least to see what do you write at "Description of sound, musical compositions or master recordings" and what/who is "Talent 1" in the case of audio recordings...
Thanks

Thank you icefront.

Yes, It is a little absurd.
I can just imagine what I will need if in one tune I use a percussion loop and synth sounds with samples probably I will need to give a release for the percussion instruments (each piece, each brand) used, one for the percussionist, then one for the synthesizer brand, one for the sound designer who has created the sounds (and probably he will have used some samples him too)
And what else?
:)

Myself I just write 'Various sound effects' in the description and use it for every sfx file I upload. You yourself as the recorder are the 'talent 1' for sfx.

And I had my girlfriend witness that I signed my own talent release. Silly but that's the way it is.
