Note that "getting away with it" is definitely something you should not count on especially the more popular become. There have been quite some high-profile court cases about famous artists sampling each other. As said before, if you stay underground it's unlikely you will ever get caught, because there's not much money to get from you to begin with.

When it comes to music, modern artists actually do this on purpose, which lead to an interesting development in music making.

If you make a song that is very similar to another tune, but still is significantly different, you can still claim to be inspired by that other tune while making something new, and you get away with it.

If your song is really the same as the other, not just the melody line but also the chord progression, then it becomes a cover and then you need to worry about labelling it as cover and see if you are allowed to make a cover. It can become a matter of buying a license to make a cover, or altering the song enough so its no longer a cover but rather an inspired work.

But as said, this is mostly something bigger artists face, and will come to play when you want to sell your music or make it available through streaming services.

So, if you have a melodyline that is very similar to that original tune you once heard, but there are a few different notes, and the rest of the song is also completely different, then you just have an insipired song, which is totally okay.

Did you by any chance run Song Cleanup after changing the number of channels? If so, that will remove all unused channels again and you will end up with the minimum number of required channels. If not, please upload an example the problem happens with to have a look at.

The "xCHN" or "xxCH" magic bytes tell the number of channels. "3CHN" means that your module has 3 channels. You can change it to four channels in the Song Properties, which will then use the "M.K." magic bytes.

That's the problem. It doesn't change. I could enter 64 channels, but the indicator shows 3CHN after saving.
I recently updated the Tracker, but the problem still is there.

Help and Questions / Modul export question
« Last post by ixs on Yesterday at 07:06:17 »
Hi!

If I try to save some other format to MOD, everything seems fine.

But there is a issue that restricts the usage of such an exported module.

There is an indicator that shows the type of the MOD file.
It should be "M.K." "4CHN" or "8CHN".
The exported file always has "3CHN" stored.
Why is it set to 3CHN, and how to change/fix it?

Thanks

Probably, everyone who writes music, faced it.
Subconsciousness, at times, plays with us a malicious joke.
For myself I divide this theme into the realised and not realised repetition.

All of us repeats someone's product when we study.
I downloaded another's 1000 fashions-files to understand, how correctly to use the editor. Peeped and stole another's ideas to use in the works because most there was no experience and ability to do arrangement.
Unless someone did not do it at the initial stage?

Another matter when you try to earn on it. Material benefits or the status (position). Here also there comes legal responsibility.

There are also amusing incidents. One year ago has written a new melody, but did not leave sensation that I not the first... When переслушал it in a half-year (with a fresh mind), it has appeared that I have repeated OWN song which has written in school days... :)  But to understand it, it was required to me of half-year...

Today it is difficult to think up something new, unique. If the melody can be qualified to any style, it means is already similar to something.
If you manage to create something new, there and then there will be hundreds groups which will play your style.
