I posted pre-mixed stems for my songs a week ago on this thread: http://www.ultimatemetal.com/forum/...tream-download-includes-stems-dis-midi-2.html A few days later, I find this youtube video where a dude is selling his mixing and mastering services with my song. The description said "here are a couple of bands I mixed recently". There were even comments like "did you mix the new nerve end album? wow", which he didn't even bother to answer. The song was also on his studio myspace page. The fun thing is, the song was 99 % like the original. He had only reamped the guitars and bass. Everything else was untouched, so the drums, vocals, keys, effects etc. was already 100 % mixed and automated by me. It's astonising how someone can think that it's appropriate to market their services with fully premixed songs, especially when it's clearly stated that these files are not to be used for commercial purposes. What do you do when a client has a request like "hey, we want a similar snare sound to the nerve end song you did". Do you just go "uhh.. well... actually... I don't know because I didn't mix it". You just can't put songs on you're official résumé if all you've done is imported some tracks and played around with a guitar DI. I think that sharing stems and tips etc. is what really makes learning this profession great. But when people violate the terms and use work done by others for their own benefit, I'm really starting to doubt if it's worth it.
