    I know this topic has a few threads, but I was wondering if people can comment on their experiences using some of these services that provide composers a searchable website library. Tell me your pros and cons.

    Here are the ones I’ve found:
    SourceAudio
    StockMusic Templates
    Tunebud
    Harvest Media
    Cadenza
    There might be some other ones, if so, let me know.
    Thanks.

    I know DISCO provides a platform to post your library that is less expensive than Source Audio. I haven’t signed up yet so I don’t know how searchable it is within your own Account. or the entire platform.

    I have to put in a plug for my brother’s site https://composerspace.com/. Starts at $10 per month.

    This is something I’m curious about as well since I feel like I’d rather partner with a few composers (strength in numbers) and try to build something together.

    I just finished my site with composrspace. Great price and great support! I had a question, and Scott called me to help me work it out. It’s relatively strait forward and easy to work with, and I think it looks good. Highly recommend!

    Here is the site.

    Interesting idea echoflex. How would you envision it working?

    Hey Scott,

    I work in post production and we are always grabbing production music from pond 5, audioo, premium beats, etc… I can refer a client to my music, but I only have 100+ tracks of varying genres. And if we are looking for a corporate acoustic pop track, and I have 8 of those, we can try all and they might not work. And even if they do choose a track of mine from Pond 5 or wherever, I’m not getting all of the money.

    So if I was partnered with 3 or 5 or ??? Composers on a site where 100% of the track cost goes to the composer, it’s a win. I might not sell a track of mine, but the client would be happy they found something and be more likely to come back. Obviously the big sites have thousands of tracks, so it’s hard to compete.

    It would be worth advertising to the buyers that ALL of the money they are spending is going to the composer. Many don’t know/care that the $30 they spent at Pond 5 is being cut down to $5-10 for the composer.

    This is just random thoughts in my head. I can see a big issue being managing the site and someone would need to do that and then they would need some kind of compensation and there are probably lots of things I haven’t thought of. Anyone reading this who wants to shoot holes in this idea PLEASE DO! It will only help flush out the possibsilities.
