So then what. There are libraries that make albums specifically focused on promos in the US. On Numerator I can see half of my promos on Fox News and Business. I can also see tons of other promos for just about every channel. I wonder if BMI accepts Numerator codes for promos, because they definitely do for commercials which are similar if you think about it. I think that’ll be my next step.
Same..I’m still waiting on my 20+ promos on FOX Business and News..sigh..lol
@RM90 I’m with SOCAN and most of my tracks are with BMI with my publisher. ASCAP pays on all those channels as they are census (all count) and not sample survey.
@Aeonata Thanks so much! Very helpful 🙂March 26, 2023 at 4:27 pm in reply to: Has tunesat became obsolete ? is there somebody flying the plane ? #42172
From my 2 years of experience with trqk compared to Tunesat, one isn’t better than the other. They both miss about the same as one another. Though trqk monitors some channels that tunesat doesn’t and vice versa.
BMAT on it’s own is super expensive and only really worth it if you have a massive catalog or are a big publisher.
So I would say keep your tunesat, but maybe put up your tracks which you think are not getting picked up by tunesat on trqk and see if there is any difference. 🙂
It’s good because they are backed by a larger company but bad because there is so much more competition now to be included on their playlists which they curate often. So even if they added a song of yours to a playlist one month that track might be gone the next if it wasn’t very popular.
Tunesat doesn’t detect on Netflix or in Japan, Canada or Brazil. I use trqk.io (which uses BMAT) as it detects some of those countries. Tunesat misses A LOT of my placements probably more than 50%.
It’s real and I’ve been with Pretzel since close to the start in 2018. I make high 4 figures with them every year. All the music I have with them is my artist music (Afilion). I have 150 tracks in their player which I own both 100% of the writing and publishing. The only way to get any plays is to be featured on their playlists which are curated. Each play pays between 0.02 and 0.03 which is higher than any other streaming service.
In terms of library music catalogs they represent all APM libraries and Epitome Music library. All other music is by independent artists like myself or small to medium-sized labels.
Basically Pretzel is another streaming service like Spotify, except it’s aimed at people who do live streaming to have as music played in the background. You have to sign a non-exclusive contract with them, for them to clear your music from content ID on Twitch and if you’d like YouTube Content ID also which actually increases play count by a lot.December 4, 2022 at 6:49 pm in reply to: Library offering 25% sync and 50% direct performance; is this a fair request? #41164
I have a few tracks with them as do some of my friends. They are a very good library. I say take the deal!

Yup! I search the channel it was on, the show or the dialogue I heard on Tunesat. Though it usually only shows up a few weeks to months later on Numerator.
Yes. Most of them are short between 10-15sec and promote an upcoming show within a few days to same day. They repeat anywhere from just once to 30 times.
I’m seeing ad codes for nearly all my promos and my co-writers promos on Numerator, even on smaller channels Art. Not sure why you aren’t getting paid on smaller channels. Can you not find them on Numerator?September 5, 2022 at 8:56 pm in reply to: Can someone please explain ASCAP’s “fell outside the survey time”? #40427
ASCAP pays royalties for performances for different types of media (commercial, promo, program, and PSA) based on two types of surveys, census survey and sample survey. A Census Survey is a count of each performance. A Sample Survey is a projection based on a snapshot of a small amount of time (six hours) on a minimum number of channels (4 – 12).
All uses are monitored by sample survey and are not paid unless performed during a sample survey time window. The following channels may or may not pay, even if cue sheets are filled. The show must fall in the survey time window or you will most likely not get paid.
BIG TEN NETWORK
Comcast SportsNet Bay Area HD
Comcast SportsNet California HD
Turner Classic Movies
Almost all other channels are census. Therefore you will get paid if you are on the cue sheet and make a claim.
