At what point do you decide you are not going to contribute to a particular library anymore. How long do you stay in before you say to yourself….results here are leading me to not considering uploading here anymore. Still fairly happy with my top 2 exclusives and top 2 rf, , but others? Well….October 30, 2017 at 8:35 am #28766
I don’t have a set cutoff. When I finish a track I immediately upload it to my proven performers. On days where I don’t feel particularly motivated to write, I will go back through my recent tracks and submit them to the so-so performing libraries and/or the ones that have a tedious submission process.October 31, 2017 at 9:00 am #28780
submit to the right libiraries in the first place and you wont have to do any cut offs. easier said than done 😉October 31, 2017 at 1:13 pm #28784

There is absolutely no way of knowing. The worst musical investments I have made have been with AAA level libraries that people say are virtually impossible to get into. Top PMA libraries. The best musical investments I’ve made have been with libraries that the general composer population regard as “horrible” deals. Go figure…..
There’s only ONE way to know. Check your paychecks 10 years down the road.October 31, 2017 at 3:57 pm #28785
Indeed, initially you really do not know, but then after 7 to 10 years of information coming in (Statements, sync checks, PRO royalties, pay pal transfers) You do know. So I say give your music to those who give you money every month or every quarter. I do have tracks with companies that rarely produce income. I do not send them new music and sometimes ask them to eliminate my catalog from their web site. The “cut off” occurs with companies that do not produce meaningful revenue. I do not consider $250 to $500 a year to be meaningful.
