    There’s another option on Soundexchange I have a question on – AHRA Authorization (Home Recording Act). I understand it gets money from a pool somewhere from sales of blank tapes/CDs, etc. Is there any drawback from opting in?

    I can’t see that there is.

    I am having a big problem w sound exchange once I checked my catalog and noticed 1/2 the tunes I registered were missing from my album I registered yrs ago, then there were 3 that I didnt even write on there. Then I asked the person to please remove the ones I didnt write from my catalog which I detailed but now it seems he just deleted my entire album , it has been a constant comedy of errors it seems but if they lose ones tunes I guess no royalties they have absorbed will actually make it to the artists . Multiply that kind of accounting by 1000s or by well known ones like gene Simmons and I guess suddenly one has an embarrassingly large unclaimed nest egg. I just wish there were an alternative, I feel ive been jipped out of royalties for yrs and now I need their help to recover what never should have been altered or deleted – my tunes. I wish there were an alternative but I guess its just too good a money maker. I really am not sure how to proceed. I have a screen copy of back when my catalog had not been messed with too.

    Their support is terrible but:

    Why don’t you just resubmit them? I submit mine using the bulk import option. Download the template, fill it out and upload.

    Is anyone getting regular royalties through Soundexchange? I’ve been on there for at least 5 years and haven’t seen a penny. I have dozens of “artist” tracks and hundreds of library tracks linked to my account. I know that some/most of my artist tracks are on Pandora (which I believe is one of their big claims to fame? lol). It seems like I should have gotten something by now, but I basically brush them off as one of those things that has been a waste of time.

    Yep, one check in the many years with them. September 2023, $14.23.
