HOW TO PERFECT LOOP AUDIO FOR INSTAGRAM

With the help of the chart below, you can choose an audio file with bpm (beats per minute) very close to the needed lenght.
In your editing software, you now can pitch your file for generating the perfect loop. Therefore you need to right click your audio clip, choose „change clip speed“. In Adobe Premiere you can type in the exact lenght you want the file to be.

So why the chart? Because this operation will change the pitch of the audio, too. (In fact there is an option for keeping the pitch the same while changing the lenght, but this always ends up in bad results.)
For best sounding results it’s advisable to choose a close bpm.

You don’t know the bpm of your track? Just try a simple tap tool like all8.com*.

NEW YEARS EVE

What do you do on new years?

Every year it is the same question?   ….and sometimes it is the same hustle: What to do on New Years?  I wonder how people can have the New Years eve planed one year upfront? Most of the time I ´m so busy planing and organising for Christmas that I totally forgot about New Years. I end up doing last minute research after Christmas when all my friends are telling me about their great trip to Hawai or the Philippines for New Years! That is the time when I feel a little jealousy crawling up from my toes to my head. Where do they find these great trips and how can they afford them?
Every year I wonder why everything is twice as expensive on New Years. But when I tell my girlfriend that we will do the fantastic journey this year and we will go to this amazing location she always wanted to go on New Years … only …… only two days later, on the second of january, I look in an cute but slightly disappointed face.

So what should we do?

We all know the big parties where you end up standing around drinking cheap champagne out of paper cups. Don ´t get me wrong. There is nothing against cheap champagne. Only if it bad.
Sometimes you paid 120 Dollar for food but it was already gone when you arrived.

 So let ´s come to a conclusion. What is the best plan for New Years?
I went to the Soho House last year in New York and it was a nice party. I was celebration in Berlin on a cool electro party the year before.
I was enjoying an amazing firework in Disneyland one year.
But I still think the evenings with nice friends were the best of all.

 So let ´s get the best ideas together and exchange our experiences!
What was your best New Years? What ideas do you have?

HOW TO FIND MUSIC FOR YOUR VIDEO?

gitarre_

You finished filming and everything looks great but now you have to find the right music for your video to put it online without any risk.

If you want to use a famous track it can be a long story to clear the rights. According to law you have to get the permission from all the owners of rights of this track. For example: You like the new song from Beyoncé. What can you do?

With the help of the internet or companies like ASCAP and GEMA you can find out the publishing company of that song.
If you write them you will get an answer of who owns the rights of the song.

If you are lucky the publisher or the record company holds all the rights and you can deal with one person.
In some cases the rights are shared between many parties.

This can mean you have to ask the publisher, the record company, the singer, the musicians and the writer. This can take month to clear all rights and the costs for the use can differ from 1000 Dollar to 80000 Dollar or more.

 If you use the song without clearing the rights you will risk a high amount of money. Even if you yourself just earned 5 Dollars with your video the original rights owner can sue you for sums like 120000 Dollar or whatever. So it is a high risk to use music without clearance. It is amazing that so many people take that risk because they probable don ´t know.

Alternatively you can buy some “royalty free” music or music where the rights are cleared already for you.
For a very affordable amount of money (20 Dollar to 200 Dollar) you can choose very often out of hundreds of tracks that are ready for your use.

On our platform, Soundfluencer.com we have the music ready in categories like comedy, action, trailer, … or in music styles like Rock, Pop, Electro.
They are very reliable, have high quality tracks and many instrumentals that are perfect if you have somebody speaking in your video.

 Create you video with emotional music and feel save!

Yours sincerely
