    Hello, has anyone here tried the detection services offered by sourceaudio, they are substantially cheaper than tunesat which I have always thought was too expensive for composers. Thanks

    I could be wrong but I think Sourceaudio’s detection service is an add on to their hosting of your audio files (which is expensive).

    SourceAudio’s trotting a new service out in a few months that’s significantly cheaper and may have a watermarking option. Stay tuned

    I did hear back from the people at sourceaudio and can confirm that the detection service is not an add on but a separate service and is very reasonably priced. You can confirm with your PRO if they will accept their data or not. Tunesat really need to bring their prices down…cheers

    Sourceaudio’s system is watermarking. This means your music files have to be watermarked before you send them for broadcast. Tunesat’s will detect existing files that are already being broadcast.

    So, if you already have music being broadcast, Sourceaudio will not detect it.

    From their website.

    21. When will I begin receiving detections on my watermarks?

    Watermarking inherently involves adding new information to your audio files. As such, newly watermarked music must be distributed to program producers, synched in their programming, and that programming aired before detections can occur.

    But the broadcast material wouldn’t be watermarked.

    So how does that affect detection?

    I think Art meant to say “Tunesat’s will NOT detect existing files that are already being broadcast”.

    Please do not put words in my mouth Happy Ears. I stand by my statement: “Tunesat will detect existing files that are already being broadcast.”

    Sourceaudio will only will ONLY detect files if they have been watermarked.

    Tunesat files do not need to be watermarked. They are two different systems.

    I repeat, if you already have music being broadcast, Sourceaudio will not detect it if it hasn’t been watermarked by Sourceaudio. On the other hand, Tunesat will detect it without a watermark. Though, to be fair, Sourceaudio’s system is probably more accurate.

    Sorry Art and Paul, for some reason I read “Tunesat” as “Source Audio”. in that sentence. It was in the middle of the night……:)
