2015 Hackaday prize video music - amp hour theme ripoff?
« on: March 10, 2015, 05:05:29 pm »
Is it just me or is the music in this 2015 Hackaday Prize making-of video a total ripoff of the Amp Hour music?  I had to laugh when I heard it.  Obviously who ever did the music is an Amp Hour fan.

Just sounds like 80s computer music to me.

That's just awful.

No, the Amphour intro music is way better, and much more pleasant to listen to.

The crap on that hackaday prize video is too loud, annoying, strenuous, and makes me want to rip my hair out :)

Same style of music, but I don't think it's the same track (unless I missed it in the Hackaday thing - I didn't listen to the whole thing).

Having said that, a lot of these people and shows use royalty free music made for this purpose... so there's a limited amount of it out there, and they don't own the rights to it - so they wouldn't be the first to use that music or the last, so it wouldn't have been 'copied'.

I don't know if TAH is using such music, but I'd imagine so.
It's not always the most popular person who gets the job done.

The original Amp Hour music was written by Chris.  The current music was written by a listener.
