Greetings to all. This is my first question here, so plz dont hit me too painfully.
I have got some rare edition of Two Steps from Hell discography/library. PDF booklet from there contains such lines:
Now, for the very first time, the Two Steps from Hell sound has been
made available for use beyond the Hollywood studios. Contained on
these 3 DVDs is the entire catalogue as 48K WAV files. For instant
gratification, a sampler CD is also included.
On the DVDs you will find the music organised into the following folders:
Action, Adventure, Drama, Epic Drama, Ethereal, Neo Classical,
Horror, Horror Tool Box, Rock Thriller, Suspense Thriller, Drums
and Trailer Toolbox.
Every folder above has in its name a production music label like XTS00X, so Action is XTS001, Adventure is XTS002 , etc. So should it be the single (DVD) release that contains all this labels or i should split it on separate releases per labels?
Also every such folder separated on 2 other folders: “Full Length” and “Alternative”, which contains respectively usual and alternate (no choir, etc.) versions. While adding new release how should i treat all this? Should this 2 folders be two different mediums?
(probably) All recordings from this release are in ASCAP database, but they differ a bit, so for example recording “Black Winged Messenger” exists in two copies, where one with alternative title “XTS001” i suppose definitely belongs to this release, while other probably belongs to CD/public release. In this case can they be treated as one recording in MB terms?
- I am confused about composer authorship. As u can see in the link above even the same (probably) recording is credited differently in the terms of writers/composers and though i didnt verify it yet, but suppose that all recordings under “label edition” as alternative title will always have both composers meaning that they worked together as studio. And this confuses me also because we have this wiki, which has exact composer info for the most of recordings http://two-steps-from-hell.wikia.com/wiki/Volume_One
