Hi whilst on a vacation / work holiday i have been reading an interesting review about how to get started in the music library world. Not sure if the mag is available in the USA but thought it might be of interest to other members of Music library report. I subscribe to SOS. In the uk. The review makes it look easy to get started …. I am not quite sure about some of the points.
Hope it is of interest if you can have a read.

I don’t think I can copy and pAste the article. You might have to buy the mag or download . However, there are some really interesting reviews about software and modern recording techniques as well as the article. You can search for sound on sound on the I tunes store.May 12, 2017 at 3:45 pm #27371
is it in the latest copy of SOS? if so i would like to take a look. curious to see what it suggests.May 12, 2017 at 8:01 pm #27373May 13, 2017 at 1:21 am #27374
Hi Up from the skies, yes May edition….. You have the link. I think you may have to pay and then you can download the mag. I regularly have a subscription.May 13, 2017 at 3:33 am #27375
thanks guys seems like it also might be useful for those of us already writing for libraries.May 13, 2017 at 6:02 pm #27384
We do havs SOS in the USA. I have a mail order subscription.
IMO it is the most informative music recording/technology mag out there.
I have to check out that article…….May 22, 2017 at 7:16 am #27435
This was an interesting read, thanks for the share!
How do you guys feel about the completed-album approach that he suggested?May 22, 2017 at 7:47 am #27436
Hi SquarewaveMultimedia. That approach has worked for me with larger PMA libraries.May 22, 2017 at 9:01 am #27437
@ UpFromTheSkies thanks, that is good to hear!
I will have to give this a shot as wellMay 22, 2017 at 11:00 am #27438
Hi SquarewaveMultimedia. That approach has worked for me with larger PMA libraries.
And it just worked for me last week with a smaller boutique library. Received a modest but acceptable upfront fee for each track.May 23, 2017 at 8:18 am #27442
Thanks for sharing, I thought the article was well worth the $1.40 download fee (if you don’t already have a subscription).May 23, 2017 at 3:51 pm #27444
Hi everyone the June part 2 read is out now.May 25, 2017 at 8:38 pm #27449
I don’t want to over complicate the authors strategy but in his full album approach, is he sending a playlist of equally mastered tracks to the Libs and calling it an “Album” or is he sending an album in the physical sense?
He really did not get specific on that point.May 26, 2017 at 3:36 am #27450
everything is digital these days i doubt anyone sends physical media anymore.
actually this brings up another point. for any of you guys working with exclusive libraries, how often do you actually chat to your publishers on the phone etc? i kinda realized that some of the libraries i’m working with i’ve only ever spoken to the A&R guys once and for others actually never.
do you think its important and helps form better relationships with the libraries by chatting now and again rather than doing everything by email?
