Good question Art.
I was going to call them in a few minutes.
The problems I’ve had with promos, according to BMI, is that if they have no promo log # , it’s impossible to get info. Soooo frustrating. I may be owed thousands of dollars.
IMO BMI doesn’t want to pay anything unless they have actual documentation from the Sup or production Co. I wouldn’t be surprised if they try not to gather the info. I know I may be a little pessimistic but I’ve had real crappy experiences with BMI.
I will ask SourceAudio a lot of questions regarding this. They claim they can get cue sheets from detections too. Interesting.April 4, 2019 at 9:08 am #31964Art MunsonKeymaster
They claim they can get cue sheets from detections too.
That would be a big plus!
The downside is they can only detect their watermarked file. If you are submitting tracks through music libraries, you would have to submit your watermarked tracks to those libraries. Any placements made through those libraries would be detected. What if any of those libraries were using SourceAudio for detecting uses? Might get complicated?April 4, 2019 at 9:21 am #31965
I don’t know if that’s the case. It’s sort of confusing because they say when you upload a track, they automatically watermark the track for you, but I see how the pub would not have that data.
I do understand your point.
Calling them now.April 4, 2019 at 9:27 am #31966Art MunsonKeymaster

See if you can talk to Hunter Williams. Good guy and a fellow musician (drummer).April 4, 2019 at 9:30 am #31967
