    Hi I did research, but there is only so much online about the library. We’ve also been in constant contact for a while. All seems well. The only thing, that I have not really looked into the last year of online studying, as far as media music, contracts,deals,sync fees,placements etc is TV promos placements. Which is where they want to target my music. The library which can not be mention on the post, has one of the higher user ratings on this site. Plus I’m no fool online or off.

    If you are in “Constant Contact”, simply ask.. “Hey Man/Woman, how much do You think I stand to make”.

    Anything is possible. I literally trade recipe’s with One of The Biggest Execs at UMG..

    I can tell you first-hand.

    I don’t know much about US TV. All I know is that they mostly or all the time work with ABC on TV Promo stuff.

    I just got my first pro set up today. My publisher said they register the tracks. Does this mean I don’t have to add anything ?Tracks etc? to my pro account.

    Thanks In Advance

    I used to think, “WOW, that’s so nice of them”. Now I know the truth.They are doing the “registration” of the songs/cues, but it really covers them. They do this to make sure that they are in control of the copyright, and making sure they lock these tracks into perpetuity.

    Yes, they are going to take care of all of the registering. So, there is nothing you will need to do.

    Nice one for the info.

    How many libraries would composers on here recommend to be on?
    I’ve seen a few people online who say 2 or 3 at the most?

    Really depends on your output of music “Annually”, and how much music normally is required from those Libraries/Catalogs you’re in.

    I stopped taking on more Libraries at around 20 Exclusives.

    I would EASILY make room for “Extreme Music” though!!

    **Foot Note**
    You will be able to gauge how many Libraries to be in by how much action/placements your music is getting. Just because it is an Exclusive doesn’t mean it is “a popular library, or even popular for your music, or style of music”. Some you will feed once, twice, and some you will “Replenish Frequently”.
