    Default Ownership/Licensing for using iRp backing tracks

    Hello! First off, WOW! I知 blown away by the app. This is truly changing my life and opening up a whole new avenue in my songwriting! I am one of those people who has musical ideas constantly rolling around in my head, but unfortunately I do not have the natural ability to play instruments. My music was always trapped in my heart and my head save writing the lyrics down. So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! This is absolutely a game changer for me.

    I知 using iRP in composing my original music. My question is, is there any ownership or licensing issues if I would want to export the MIDI and use it in my DAW for for finishing and ultimately, for release and possible sync licensing? I feel personally that I should list iRP in the credits, but I was just wondering if this would be an issue legally even though it痴 an original composition. Thanks!

    You may freely use audio backing tracks created with iReal Pro for any purpose as long as you include attribution.
    That means be cool and credit iReal Pro to reward all the hard work we put into this app.
    We are looking forward to seeing your original charts shared here with links to your YouTube tracks and videos.

    If we're posting original compositions/arrangements (or links to the audio, etc.), which area on the Forum should we post those?

    When sharing a song that is your own original composition, please include a link to either an audio file or YouTube so your original chord chart would have some context for others.

    Only post audio and YouTube links as follows:

    1.context for your own original compositions

    2.when requesting a song be added to the Forums
    Please review this helpful info:
    https://www.irealb.com/forums/showth...-Request-Songs

    3.to show the source of a tune you have transcribed to an iRp chart and are posting.

    Don’t post random audio tracks to share or promote. (that's spam) this is not Facebook.

    Where to post?

    Start a new thread titled like this:
    song title - composer name (you)
    Include any other information in the body of the post.

    Post it in the most appropriate genre Forum
    Select the best choice from the five at the top of this list.
    https://www.irealb.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?3-Songs

    Remember, just because you prefer to play your tune as a "bossa" doesn’t make it a Brazilian song.

    If you have a playlist of your original songs, you could share it in a single thread titled:
    <your name> songs
    and share a link to your SoundCloud, Bandcamp or youtube channel where the audio for your songs lives.
    You could add more songs to that thread as a reply in the future.

    Your arrangements or reharms of other peoples compositions should be added the existing song discussion thread for that tune. If no song thread for that tune has been started (yet) go ahead and start it.
    review the guidelines for posting charts:

    Looking forward to your tunes
