    Hi fellow ASCAP writers! Just curious how this payout goes for you. Increase/decrease?

    Best of luck.

    Increase for me due to some network placement action.

    Last year was small as it was my first year getting royalties. Much better this year. No other quarter touches July though.

    Interesting…I have a cue sheet in my account with a March air date for a syndicated show (1:35 background instrumental) but YTD royalties = $0.00.

    I’m new to the cue game so any advice is welcome.

    not one of my better quarters but I was surprised by a CBS placement that payed me almost $100.00 for one spin..I could use a bunch of those 🙂

    So how often @Golds @chuckmott @Jay have you not been paid for cue sheets that posted in your ASCAP account?

    Never, occasionally, all the time?

    I submitted an inquiry to ASCAP.

    @chuckmott ha thanks for the reply. I will keep my nose to the grindstone then and hope that the surveys/algorithms etc find favor with me eventually.

    I’ve had issues with cue sheets not being paid. It’s something I believe you have to address immediately. Recently, I had a situation where Ascap wouldn’t honor a payment for a cue sheet which was submitted over a year after the initial airing

    the way ASCAP pays is so sketchy I really don’t know if they’re not paying me for cue sheets in my account…but I can tell you from what I see @ Tunesat that they miss a lot…I stumble upon placements on my own as well (no cue sheets).. I’m missing out on probably 30 to 40% of the revenue that should come my way..it’s pretty frustrating…makes me want to quit @ times..the current system is a JOKE..they could fix it but they don’t want to..

    Thanks @Golds and @Jay for your candid responses.

    I’m missing out on probably 30 to 40% of the revenue that should come my way..it’s pretty frustrating…makes me want to quit @ times..the current system is a JOKE..they could fix it but they don’t want to..

    I’ve only been in the library game a year and can already totally understand the frustration. The little bit of placements I’ve gotten I’m extremely thankful for yet it is a hard pill to swallow to see a properly filed cue sheet showing 1:35 usage of my song be ignored.

    I’ll follow up when I get the final answer from ASCAP. I suppose there’s a chance they could say the payment was so small it wouldn’t round up to $.01 haha

    Mine was about average. I expected more so I was a bit disappointed. I was surprised to see royalties for a promo on CBS that aired 9 times. I was unaware of it. It was 10 seconds long and paid between $3 and $9 each depending on the time of day. Hopefully it continued into the next quarter.
    Now I will hope next months international payout is strong. That one is always a surprise.

    I got more than I expected. A couple of reality show placements from 2 and 3 years ago still generate.
