    I have 6 Sound Effects CD'S on top and 21 different Ambient Tracks as you scroll down.
    I am sorry I forgot to include you in my list of audio used in our haunt. I have every cd Adam had made, and they are all great.

    I will second the CD's from Poison props, however we got through FrightProps, still GREAT CD's!!

    We use his ambient tracks as backdrops to our orchestral pieces that WE'VE WRITTEN, and had recorded by the local philharmonic and choir! Custom all the way and love it! I'm not saying the music out there can't be used, love it all! I say, use it all and use what you can! -Tyler

    Midnight syndicate is better anyway but they should get back to their roots, back to the gothic sounds from Born of the Night and Realm of Shadows. All their stuff is good but those were even better IMO.

    Just for the sake of complete information: I did contact Nox Arcana. They do have some music I would have liked to use. There are 2 options that do not require paying $100 fee each year. One is to display their web banner on the home page of your website, the other is to buy $200 in cd's at wholesale cost and resell them each year. If you don't want to do one of those options, you pay $100. I personally will just stick with Virgil, Jerry, Midnight Syndicate, and Poision Props, but if you want to use Nox Arcana, their are options.

    I had a chance to work with Adam on a project and got to meet him. Great talent and great down to earth dude! He also has won A grammy I think for some sound design in a movie. I have most of his cds and use those exclusivley in my haunt.

    I'm certainly no lawyer, but can they legally do that? My logic is along the lines of a bait and switch. Last year they sold you XYZ album for use, royalty free as long as you hang their poster. Now, you're no longer allowed to use it unless you pay a fee, after you have already purchased the CD under the original agreement.

    Actually, as far as I know they still allow you to use their music for free you just need to put a link on your attractions' website. That way they can verify it unlike the poster option.

    No The Policy Has Been Changed they told me directly through a couple emails. I heard through the grapevine that they have given some grief to one haunt over using their music last year that did not hang their posters or have their banner on their webpage BUT I can't confirm the truth of the story and I got the news from someone that heard about it from the haunt owner. So yeah that's a lot of lips and ears that news passed through before entering my ears. LOL

    I just finished redoing our Soundtrack for the Haunted Forest. I've been working on it here and there since June. It's our 30th year so being forced to have new music is kind of a blessing in disguise. I'm not really angry at Nox Arcana just disappointed. I put the original warning post up not to pick on Nox Arcana or pick a fight with them just to point out to everybody to pay attention if you use their music because their policy has changed and they did give me a warning in the emails about using their music without paying a royalty.

    My big thing is this, now that they have changed their stance on allowing their music to be used, IF IF IF they reversed it today and said alright we are just going to go back to the way we were I STILL WOULDN'T use their music. Not because I'm stubborn but for two reasons.

    A: In case they change their minds again

    and

    B: I just re-did the Haunted Forest soundtrack.

    At this point I just really don't care anymore. I wish them the best of luck from here on out.
