Beatslinger: I hear that, i do. If we had more money it would be free. All I can say is certain sites make promises for gigs that are not visible or cloudy. We are showing our featured judges and polls are visible. There can be no denying that a winner was selected by quality, not contribution. It might not be for everyone, but the intentions are good and visible for all to see. Plus, it’s fun and breaks up the monotony of sitting in a cave and waiting for a PRO check.January 28, 2018 at 10:19 am #29388BEATSLINGERParticipant
OK. Here goes.. I am one of those “Solid B+ Composers with full albums, and tracks in some Top Tier Libraries”. Understanding that because “The Bar has been set so low with the influx of un-seasoned writers; it is making it harder for music to be heard by The Top Tier Libraries”. I will send you a PM, with a link to my work, and you let me know I should give this a shot. It’s not like you’re asking a lot of money, it’s just the principle..January 28, 2018 at 11:21 am #29390LAwriterParticipant
Yeah, myself as well. I’m an A+, B or C- level writer depending on the day you catch me, ad who I’m working for. 🙂
I appreciate the fact that it takes some money to do this, but as it sits – even with the reasonable price – it seems that it’s just another pay to play scheme. And with that, I’m not interested. Thanks for the opportunity though….January 28, 2018 at 11:48 am #29391GoldenEarParticipant
Honest enough…I’m like an A in my head, but a B- according to BMI 😉
This discussion has definitely given me food for thought. I will expedite my homework on advertisers and go back to some 7th grade math to figure out how to balance this. ThanksJanuary 28, 2018 at 5:18 pm #29393gigdudeGuest
How do they know we are MLR users ? It just says $5 on the submission page.January 29, 2018 at 9:57 am #29406GoldenEarGuest
Due to some discussion on “pay-to-play,” we have decided to not charge for submissions.
We are exploring advertisers to help cover the hosting and administrative costs.
All future correspondence will take place off MLR, as to not clog this forum.
If you are interested and would like updates, please join the mailing list if you have not already done so, and we will re-launch with new submission info on Feb 1.
Thanks for the creative input.
