    what exactly happens?

    I’ll explain a little better my question!

    I’m referring to exclusive libraries in particular – I’m working with two of them – consider a deal where you keep 100% of your writer’s rights and 50/50 for sync deal (but indeed same question even for different kind of deals); while you usually check your PRO statements for royalties, what about the Sync deals?
    What exactly happens with sync splits? I guess you should get notified by your library partner, am I wrong?
    Despite having few albums with them I’m still waiting for something happening and as a relatively new writer, I still haven’t seen any royalties income – in my country you’ll get your rights from your PRO one year later, and just twice a year, one of the reasons I’ll quit with Italian SIAE to go with BMI from Jan 2021.
    I’d like to know in particular, how you usually get your sync fees, how usually libraries deal with it and share with their artists?
    Thank you in advance to all of you.

    Many libraries have a threshold of earnings before they send you a payment. I’m with one exclusive library that waits for as much as $200 owed ($400 total in sync fees) before sending a payment.

    Thank you for your reply Scott!
    Yes it makes sense, I can understand it.
    I’m more interested about the communicative part of it.
    I’ve heard some libraries just sent out payments almost automatically but I was wondering if they also keep posted their artists about placements.
    I guess it might be different from library to library (and even person by person) but I was wondering if there’s a sort of pattern in the way they interact with their artists.
