So is the verbal announcer going to be scrapped completely?

Even remastering/mixing, the IP would still be in the hands of the composer(s) ; Looks like composer was Russell Shaw and the music/sound programmer was Tony Cox.

That aside, the rights do seem to still be in the hands of EA. Thus derivatives, remixes, remasters or whatever you want to flag it as, would be a no go (classed as a derivative work. Copyright can only be issued for a derivative work "only if the derivative work is lawful, because of a license or other "authorization.""

Although from a performers perspective, PRS has the same stance about arrangements of tunes that are within copyright. "You must check with the copyright owner of the original copyright material that they grant their permission for the arrangement"

This type of remix/master/whatever would be classified as a "purely adaptive arrangement"; not altering the primary or secondary melodies, keeping the chord progression etc..

You could potentially use snippets under the guise of samples, but it still needs to be a "new" composition.

I think there would be less of an issue if the originals (or remixes) were released as a mod pack or similar (not included with the game) released by an individual.

Bottom line, I don't see the original tracks being able to be released with the game without permission from the copyright or IP holder.

Yeah, I would always consider the announcer to be the woman who does voiceover announcements and the advisor to be the pop-up guy with hints & tips

In relation to what I thought the topic was about:
I'm guessing the announcer will want re-voicing at some point? If this were to happen, what would be the vision in terms of voice? Male/Female? Accent?

In the hopes of being helpful, I've made a quick spreadsheet with all the already recorded announcements that I've found and tried to organise them into groups (commenting enabled to anyone with this link).

May help with proposed priority system.

If people feel like suggesting things to add to this list, just say and I'll put a new bit in (for when a re-voicing is attempted)

With music composed in this manner, publishing a source file is largely useless unless you happen to have the same however many plugins and samples etc, then you have to consider the amount of space a three minute track may take up if you've done ten take per instrument, drums using 8 or so mics recorded at 96khz and 24bit.. it starts racking up size massively.

"Open Source Music" has been a largely disputed term and most companies come to the agreement that as long as derivatives are allowed; with no "source", so to speak, ever being formally published.

I believe the plan was for him to change to a deriv licence once he has finished playing with the tracks.
