    Hi all!

    I read The bedroom super producer, where this site was mentioned and decided to give it a go!

    Have been a musician for 20 years, and have been learning to produce electronic music for around 8. Dreaming of one day working 100% with music so now I’m doing my research.

    Haven’t sold any of my songs, but we all have to start somewhere!

    I love many genres of music and am aiming to make movie music type cues, electronica, piano music and more.

    Would love to come in contact with people for some mentoring so if anyone would be kind enough to let me ask a few questions about their personal experiences, that would be awesome!

    Welcome! There are many here just like you. I started doing this about 3 years ago. I’m not full-time yet, but it’s slowly ramping up. Persistence and getting better is the key!

    Hi both and thanks! Would either of you mind to answer some questions? Interested in how you got started etc!

    Nutshell… started off in RF libraries. Still belong to a few but slowly saw that revenue decrease so knocked on library doors, got into a few, worked more on cues for TV, started getting placements and have watched my PRO statement slowly grow.

    OK, and how hard did you find it getting into the business? I have songs in one library but barely have any listeners, figured I’d use this site to find ones suitable for me!

    A couple of things you should know.

    “It’s a marathon not a sprint”

    “Patience and persistence”

    Welcome to “living the dream” haha. Here is a post id did a couple of years ago that may interest you:

    I suggest you spend a week or two reading MLR threads in reverse before you ask general questions about the business. You will have to wade through some banter and grumpy composer posts, but you will likely find answers to all of your questions. And definitely pay for full access. This site was free when I stumbled on it. I bought a lifetime membership the day Art decided it was time he got paid for his hard work. There is a treasure trove of info on this site.

    Hey Alan!

    Thanks for your input, your post was very interesting!

    Yeah, I realise the road is long, but I am looking at it as a long term investment. At the moment I am also looking for indie filmmakers to include my music for free, just for the love of the art.

    Started looking at the library listings and posts here and I agree, the site definitely seems worth paying for!
