I'm in the process of creating a Station ID for a non-commercial website that plays old radio shows. So it would be "You're listening to , thousands of free radio shows. It's that simple" Basically one of the static/radio tuning sounds fading into the announcement/identification.
Is a Station ID considered promotion or advertising? I'm unclear on this. Also, to make the sound more interesting, I would be running it through a glitcher/altering the sound quite a bit, but it is still using the original sampled/recorded sound.
If it is considered advertising and/or promotion, then I'll go a different route and figure something else out.
It is probably fine but best check with the author of the sound you intend to use.
Hi LG, thanks for the response. I sent the author a message, so I'll hope he's able to get back to me soon.
Edit: and a quick response from the author says I'm good to go!
That's great, good luck!
