What's SPC? (something something copper?)

Sorry, I'm a total noob at cables and google failed me yet again.

If it's mentioned in some article, then I've not read. But asking him directly he politely declined to answer (this was back in July, I don't know if he's decided to share the information publicly since then). So when I had ALO convert to balance I asked Ken if he could take a peek to see what the cable was made of, and his response was silver (not SPC). He further added he understood why the cost was so high and felt it was justified.

Silver-Plated Copper. It's not often used as an acronym, but typing out the whole thing is bothersome.

:-(...then I've just spent a lot of money for this cable then - well I got a reasonable discount but still, the most expensive cable (per foot) I've purchased.

It think it's more a marketing angle than anything else. I do listen to anime songs (some are really excellent) and they're all over the place with regard to style, instruments, etc. In fact, like movie songs, many anime songs are simply borrowed. For instance, the anime Inuyasha borrowed songs from Do As Infinity -- which is how I discovered my favorite Japanese band, one of my favorite bands ever, and one of the few I saw live (in New York). Similarly, I discovered Kansas's "Dust in the Wind" through the TV series Highlander

In those instances they aren't borrowed but rather it's what they call a "tie-up" - basically it's a cross-promotional effort where singers (usually well established ones, but not always) gets either hired or was placed directly in the production by sponsers of the show to make a song for that work and it's gets played in the show, then the song gets sold as "x's show theme song".  In fact anime rarely "borrows" from existing pop songs, it's nearly always creating new theme songs so they have yet another thing to promote and sell for more revenue.

Seems like with all the fees added up together, getting the Monet may be close to getting the LCD3. *frowns*

Hefty premium for a luxury item :). The key word is "luxury".

But "Deep Forest" was released as a DAI single before it was aired as the second ending theme song for Inuyasha. You'd think that, were it a joint effort, "Deep Forest" would have first been first heard as a theme song, not as a single.

I'm not familiar with this particular situation but I really don't think that there was no tie-in promotional effort involved somewhere because on the business end it makes no sense - it's not worth paying JASRAC for the license for the rights to use an old song (I once did some calculations for JASRAC song rights, it easily going into several million yens) in a new show when you can't even sell it, or the more logical explanation is that DAI's music label was Inuyasha's back sponser so they could just nip it without paying royalties.  Even if they did "borrow" then it would be a really big exception and not the rule.  Also if they did "borrow" it would nearly always be a new mix or new cover of the old song, just like how they do it in the states anyway.

 

EDIT:  I checked the Japanese wiki: "Fukai Mori" was first used in Inuyasha in episode 21 which was broadcasted on April 9 2001, the single for Fukai Mori was released on June 27 2001.  So it appears I was right all along. wink.gif
