    Hi there, I’m about to start the process of signing off a library album and it’s my first time dealing with an upfront fee for production music. What is the standard rate on a per track basis? Floating scales are fine, I’ve seen anywhere from $200-$2,000. I’d love some insight. Thanks!

    It depends on the rest of the deal. For example, what % cut of license / sync fees will you receive?

    Some example terms, not necessarily real:

    50/50 on all income, no up front
    25% of sync fees, $300 up front per track
    0% of sync fees, $1000 up front

    I don’t think there is a standard rate that I know of. Each company is different.

    There are no standards.
