Well, I thought I had wrung out a new theme on MLR but seems there were still too many problems so I have reverted back to the old theme. Some comments were lost and if anyone has purchased a subscription in the last day and can’t log in contact me here and I will re-register you. Sorry about the hassle.
As MLR attracts more and more newbies to the music library world I’ve collected various posts that deal with recurring questions. Please check these links first! Continue reading
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.
One of our subscribers pointed out that the composer interview section hasn’t been updated in a while. To be included you must have some experience in the field and you must be earning at least 5 figures annually as a production music composer (we have enough interviews at 4 figures and under). The interviews will always be available free of charge (they will not require a subscription to access).
Those accepted will receive one month free access. If you have a lifetime membership you can donate the free month to a friend. Continue reading
So, I’ve started an MLR video channel as it’s something I have been wanting to do for awhile. Right now it’s just a few “explainer” videos with basic concepts that I’m pulling from our e-book.
I would like to expand it as time goes by and I thought it would be great to get ideas from the MLR community for future videos. They are only 60 seconds long so the concept has to be succinct. If anyone has ideas or would want to try their hand at a script you would get credit, for writing the script, and use your music (if you would like) also with credit.
Any ideas, or takers on writing a script, let me know. Either way I will be adding more videos on a regular basis. Click below to check out the channel so far. Comments welcome!

You know, we never discuss politics on MLR. It’s okay. My mother taught me never to talk about religion or politics in mixed company. In fact, she taught me never to talk about religion or politics at all! It always leads to big arguments. It ruins friendships, wrecks marriages, and nobody ever gets converted. To put it another way, as Art and I have so often observed, “You can’t tell anybody anything!” So, we won’t start talking politics now.
However, we can talk about meta-politics. (I just made that word up.) In other words, we can talk about how politics, on the whole, affect us. And that, I think, most of us can agree on. Say what you will about the past year, but it’s been full of politics! People have been yammering away about what’s happening in Washington, and the talk has not been pretty! Continue reading
