  1. IMHO, I think everyone here should be a little careful. The part about the MIDI just doesnt make sense and the advance payment idea sounds like a trap.

    1. Right….. so I had some thoughts about this midi stuff…it would be easy for me to take your midi tracks and bounce them to .wav and then sell it as samples…midi is just to easy to manipulate…all you’d need is the software load it up manipulate the midi and who’s to say I couldn’t make a sample pack…lots of non cleared samples on shady websites out there…….also some software companies do not want you to make stems or use samples in isolation…IAW their license agreements…i.e Splice for example they require… If you wish to submit your work to a production music library you can, but you do have restrictions to providing the samples you’ve used in isolation. This means that the samples you use need to either be edited to the point of it not being recognized as the original sample or include it in a combination of other sounds… i.e. a track…this is what I take away from this request for midi they need…just some of my thoughts maybe I’m wrong…but I’m not willing to take that chance?

      1. What you’re saying makes sense as far as the samples go but midi is just data not sound so I don’t see how you can make any kind of sample out of it and sell it so that part is a little lost on me unless I’m just not understanding you which is very possible.
        In either case, I wouldn’t touch this. My comfort level wouldn’t allow it just based on what little I know and have read about it but that’s just me.

  2. ….I got the same email….I asked them a lot of question also on why the midi files, time restraints and such….The response I got was “Sorry but midi is required because of Chinese market environment” WTH does that even mean……….I just did not get a warm and fuzzy…..I have learned through the years to trust that feeling…your dealing with another country and a whole set of different laws heck I have a hard enough time figuring ours out ..I wish you all good luck…

  3. They seem legit, but we can question their methods. Maybe they’re trying to grow their catalogue quickly and get exclusive content? It may work. I hope the best for them.

    1. I had 15 tracks accepted and approved by them last may. I never got paid. Their attitude became and claimed my banking info was useless in China for political reasons.

  4. I’ ve got an invitation too and was wondering what to do.. Maybe someone can help me clarify this?
    Lets say you do China exclusive:

    China-exclusive authors share 55% of their income, for example, selling $ 100 (tax excluded) for music.

    The money you get = ($100 – 10.7%Poundage) * 55% = $49.12

    Since most buyers on 100Audio are in China, we have to abide by China tax laws which means that you will have 17% withheld from all China sales. Also, according to China tax policy, there’s another income tax for individuals varies between 40% and 20%.
    So if I get it right on top of any other fee.

    So on top of any other fees (poundage and 100audio cut) they withhold between 37% and 57% of taxes on each sale? that sounds like too much but maybe im missing something?

    Thanks

    ps. oh and then MM_Musicworks is talking about another 5% fee for transition?

  5. I’m thinking this is bogus….but did anyone get an email like this from 100Audio.

    1. My experience… I uploaded 71 tracks… Got 65 approved .. and then shortly after received my advance payment (I had signed up for 60 tracks).

      Its been 7 weeks since I joined… ive had 8 sales…. Their selling price is higher than other rf sites…so money earned per sale is also higher… Even though they deduct some fixed percentage before calculating the payout..

      So far, my dealings with them seem above board…

      Upload is a bit complicated… You have to upload a screenshot of the daw session and a midi file…to prove you are the true author… Ive gotten used to it after uploading so many files…

      Payment is transferred electronically via SWIFT bank transfer… Which eats up about 5% of the payout… Hoping theyll shift to more common methods like paypal soon…

      Hth…

      1. MM_MusicWorks – Do you have any follow up here? We are looking at this company in part based on your review here but I’ve been going back and forth with them, them asking for an entrepreneurship license (vs a person drivers license), and they said we would be the first represented US artist/company hence the unawareness that there is not a specific entrepreneurship license here. Are you based in a country where this is a thing or otherwise what did you do here?

      2. Payment is transferred electronically via SWIFT bank transfer… Which eats up about 5% of the payout… Hoping theyll shift to more common methods like paypal soon…

        PayPal takes 3-6% too (better services like Payoneer still take 2-4%), but most libraries I’ve seen will pay the fee themselves and not offload it to you.

        1. Hi Steve,

          Do you have any concern that they want midi files of your tracks? That’s a bit of a red flag for me as they are easy to sell or steal.

          The drivers license request also gave me pause.

  6. I found them through research and was wondering if any of this was legit. Thank you guys so much. I probably will not be uploading my tracks there as well. Has anyone had good experience with this site yet?

  7. Red Flag 1: I got an “invitation” through the e-mail portal of an already existing music licensing platform. This is not an ethical or professional approach.
    Red Flag 2: The are mainly a “Shenghai, China” operation. China is clearly stealing intellectual property every chance they get. Their government closes their markets and fair trade is just non-existent. This creates a perfect opportunity for this company to just sell music and not pay artists.
    Red Flag 3: Why are they trying to poach existing writers and catalogs with the $2300 advance temptation scheme? Exactly $23 per track. This is not a good deal. They essentially are saying we will pay you for the first 100 sales up front, but gee…once you hit that 101st sale…will they resume paying you?
    Red Flag 4: I have never seen back end performance royalties from China on a statement and I wonder if they even have a PRO in place in that country to deal with performance royalties for air plays.

    I would use extreme caution with this type of company. I personally will not be uploading music to them. In turn, I am hoping the platforms I am currently working with can responsibly and ethically expand the distribution into the Chinese market and pay us writers fairly.

    I have always found it interesting how China and Russia (2 very large countries) buy the least amount of music from stock music licensing sites. Yet, Russian composers can do very well selling to the world. Bottom line: it’s not a 2 way street with communistic countries.

  8. Got an invitation from them to upload to their library. I don’t know….. Anyone had experience with them?

    1. At the moment it doesn’t look like it’s worth the effort – their top selling track of all time has fifty something sales and that coupled with what looks like an extremely convuluted upload process puts me off for now

    2. I received an invite recently also. I would like to have a foot in Asia, and apart from ME, I only found crappy exclusive deals to do so. In the email, 100Audio promotes on its openess to China, so I am kind of interested.
      So I’m with AllanGiorgio in asking if anyone has experience with them 🙂

      1. They are offering upfront money – $2300 out of your future earnings if you upload ONE HUNDRED exclusive tracks!! So that’s twenty three dollars per track, for what could be a few months work. Great. They then go on to advise you to upload more than a hundred though, as some are likely to be rejected!!

          1. Yeah I guess it’s an advance, but what I was getting at is how shocking it is that they would even propose anything so appalling
