Specific music library questions/comments
Just a reminder that the forum is not a place for any specific music library related questions or comments except for here (subscription required). Please ask them under a particular library’s listing. It’s the only way to build a knowledge base of composer’s experiences. Any forum references to a particular library will be deleted.
I was contacted last week by a “Copyright Registration Service” that wanted to advertise on Music Library Report. They actually had already paid for one month’s ad run (since returned).

Tag your Music with Metadata
You’ve made all this great music; you burned a ton of Cd’s and are headed off to a conference. You hand the CD to several music supervisors and industry professionals. You feel good, heck, you feel great! You are hopeful about all your new connections.
The music supervisor takes your CD, (loses the cover) and imports your music. The music supervisor then shakes their head when they see:
Track 01 No title, no author, no nothing.
They love the songs they are hearing but have no way to contact you. In the stack of 100 biz cards they collected they don’t know who you are. Now an opportunity is lost because the music files weren’t properly tagged with metadata or they did not retain that data. (WAV files don’t retain metadata)
