Hybrid Tracks

Example 1:

Example 2: Has both orchestral and electronic elements.

Filing Cue Sheets

So, I have a big hole in my education when it comes to filing cue sheets. Recently a company in Ireland licensed a piece of music for a commercial to be aired in Ireland. This was through Audiosparx (AS) and AS did send me the track usage info and cue sheet. I know I should file the cue sheet but am a bit in the dark with foreign usage and the proper procedure. I know AS would did this for me but I’m not willing to give up that income for something I can do myself, once I learn.

I also received a cue for a piece sold for Internet broadcast that was sold through Productiontrax and in the dark about filing that cue sheet also.

I know I could go to BMI for this info but thought I would start a thread as I’m sure others could have questions along this line.
