I do not like the mail voice repeating several times "Biome Digital", can´t enjoy listening this way

Would be enough to have it twice only in the track and maybe a deeper voice ?!

It's a watermark. Same as many others.

I agree with Giano
Too much watermarking is not needed and counterproductive

It surprises me that the only comments so far are about the watermark! It's not counter-productive, it's quite normal practice in the production music business. It is actually less often than AudioJungle, pond5 and many other watermarks.

I will add a disclaimer to the post to warn people that it contains a watermark.

Curious ... do you place the watermark on everything you post online or only works that you have commercial goals for? I'm quite familiar with watermarks, but just wondered what your reasoning is in this case? So far I've only used these when selling short commercial soundclips, which were required and placed for us by the marketing site. Not sure how I might proceed with regular tunes in the future. Some use them, some don't; some only release first X seconds of new songs, etc.

I personally think you should add your watermark to what ever you want. Its your music. People will use watermarked versions in their videos and then monetise it on youtube. So, you make nothing and they use your song and get money, same way pirate sites work - advertising!

At least with a little wartermark you have a credit! lol

So, is this music really this bad that the wartermark is the only talking point?

I'd like to point out that if you digitally distribute your works, then people stealing for their own youtube videos is a good thing, as you'll get their monetization $$$

I can't imagine why anyone would want to 'copy protect' such rubbish audio/visuals.

A video of a seemingly manic depressed woman, and a chain smoking male, with 'funeral derge' background 'musak'...

Sorry, maybe I am missing the point ... !

Had a quick look at this. The voiceover keeps saying 'This song is available etc' but they are not songs. Songs have singers and lyrics. Why have people started calling instrumental pieces 'songs'. I opened another of your videos which had the same voiceover and that was an instrumental track too. You should change the voiceover to 'This music......' If you have to have a digital watermark at least make it accurate in description.

I actually quite liked the piece and could picture it working quite well as a melancholy theme in a short film.
The watermark didn't really bug me. I get the purpose of including it.

Cool piece. In this case.. Its more of a mood than a song but its cool. The watermark does limit the impact. I didnt really like it. Put it this way, without the watermarks i may have given it a second listen to try and pick more up from the piece. Not with the watermarks tho. I understand the reason for them however.

Default Interesting work

The watermark is a watermark.. when you know it is there, it is not too much of an intrusion. I thought the piece was a bit depressing, but that is point, so mission accomplished. I wish I could play like that though.. I'm impressed by that.

I thought the girl drinking coffee was fit. do you have her number. I could cheer her up some.

If I may.. a tip.. loose the mega THX 3D ID intro thing. It is impressive but it sets the listener up wrong. Particularity for that track. Better still, make another that is less 'Action Movie' and a bit more 'Intel Inside'..

Also. I had to look twice at your logo.. At first I thought the 'i' was an 'L'...

Good work though.. I will listen to more of your material.

The watermark was way too obnoxious for me to listen to it all. I liked the composition though. Apparently they lost a child. I'm not saying don't watermark but for me it's extremely annoying.

amazing that no one 'gets it'.... obviously Biome Digital is the name of the missing kid that used to be in the swing. Hopefully the parents have contacted the authorities and posted some Missing fliers around town.

I can not concentrate on listening to the track because the watermarks spoil the track,

Imagine an audience in an opera watching and listening to Mozart´s "Don Juan" and every 60 seconds a guy appears during the performance on stage shouting "Do not record this live performance with your smart phones, you can buy a CD with the same orchestra and piece after the concert!"
Ask the audience if they liked the Performance, they would not talk about the performance, because all they would remember is that annoying guy on stage who appeared every minute.

Or
imagine you want to make love with your girlfriend and your mum comes every minute in your room repeating "Use a contraceptive" !
Would you like that ?

Either you want people to enjoy or perceive your art OR you want to make them know that you make some art, noise, music or whatever and you want to point out that this composition is yours, it can be purchased and no one is allowed to steal it - you have done the latter more or less - and I comprehend now !
So now we could assume that you make some noise, music or compositions, maybe you want to post a link in order to make people hear your compositions ;-)
Reaper even has a specific thread called "Music/CollaborationDiscussion"
Maybe think about adding a permanent hiss noise to your tracks, that would be better than these nerving watermarks and at/after the end of track you could add one watermark with some info (e.g." this is a 8 Bit /12kHz mix with some hiss added, you can purchase and download this track in high quality!")
