Hello everybody I´ve searched the forum but couldnt find a clear answer. We run a studio here in Namibia, but most of the time we are busy arranging the stuff poeple are bringing to us.After that it goes on CD.Often they just give us a MIDI with a draft voice and let us work on that. Is it still arranging or co-composing? Often during the process the song changes its own character, for example last time some send us a tape with his voice and piano accomp. Than he asked us to arrange it as a dance tune, although on the tape it was a "pathfinder" ballad. He was happy and loves HIS SONG Still arrangement? Some poeple just come to the studio with only melody and say we hve to do the beat. I think you cant consider it arranging anymore. Last question One guy made a song with us for 5 months. He brought us in the beginning only a midi. We changed everything,even the whole structure of the song, he was happy. We finished the song, he payed, now he play it on the radio.Point Now he phoned us he wants the multitrack to remix it. Can he do it? He sad he payed us so even the multitrack is his. Could you guys give us some ideas on contracts we should do, or if you know some links so we can read a bit more about. Thank You in advance Wojtek P.S Sorry for my english.
