    Hi All:
    How important do you think it is to offer alternate versions to the main version, in RF libraries?
    Can someone give me your opinion please?
    Does it worth $$ the time spent to make the edits?
    If that is the case, which edits do you recommend? 30″, 60″
    Does it apply to all kind of cues, songs and genre?

    Thanks for your help ¡

    Absolutely! Was just looking at a cue that has not sold well except for DnB version. That version generated over $1k on one RF site alone.

    One of my biggest sellers on an RF site is a 30sec. version that has generated thousands of dollars.

    I do DnB, Bed, No Drums, Loop, Sting, 15, 30 and 60 all genres.

    So, a big YES!

    It’s certainly very important to do alt versions for your RF tracks.
    The previous 2 months i got 14 sales in one RF site and only 1(!) of them was the main version.The rest were mostly DnB,No Lead Melody and Sting versions.
    My 2nd best selling track in the same site is a DnB version.
    In another RF site,i got a No Lead Melody sale for a national tv commercial in Taiwan.

    All the alt versions Art mentioned above can get you sales in the RF libraries.

    Generally, I price them all the same ($39.95) except for loops and stingers ($19.95). On best sellers I go as high as $59.95.

    Thanks Art, InLightTone, Kubed and boinkeee2000 for your helpful comments, by the way, can someone explain to me what it is a loop version?

    Thank you.

    A loop version is a usually a shortened version of the song that is “loopable”. So if you copied and pasted it several times back to back, it would seamlessly play over and over. It allows the client to use it no matter how long the scene is. In your DAW just highlight a segment of the track and make sure it sounds fine/smooth as it keeps repeating.

    It is extremely important! I would say that at least half of my sales on the RF market are the alt versions.
