thanks for your input art & BS,got a full year to contemplate on this. hopefully some might get placed by then…
i have a GR55 that i use on my live gigs, may be a good idea for solo strings, havent crossed my mind to use it for prod music (duh)…it always felt better even with the slides, hammer ons/pull offs and vibrato (more expressive than keys)…good call
I agree with you beatslinger, as a popular saying goes “write, submit, forget, repeat”. but i do believe one of the treasures of this community is the sharing of experiences from seasoned members, not as a rule, but a barometer in order to adjust & evaluate every facet of the process moving forward. i’ve removed the money aspect of this industry long time ago since it is a hindrance, but the insight gained from others who are open to share real experiences is what makes being a member here worth the price of admission
. . . and yes i have learned a lot from you from my previous threads and am grateful . . .
congratz, question…how long did it take til you saw intl royalties trickle in, coming up to 2 yrs here and still no signs of intl presence yet with bmi (per my intl pubs)…ty
guess i’m really slackin off…it takes me an hour just to get through emails, news, and reports
ive been at this for 2yrs, got my first BMI royalty check last month for $25 (ate at sizzler)…based on an exponential trajectory ill be hitting 100k by 2045 😀
i’ve always pondered upon that, but so far havent had any backlash on helping other folks out,nor would i know if it came back and bit me anyways …i’d probably draw the line if I knew the other guy is an exact clone of me (or better)…but ive never met two people who thinks, writes, and sounds exactly the same even within the same genre
well except in corporate music, if you listen to recent or best selling tracks on a popular rf site, seems like cloning is the norm, maybe even encouraged on that side of the “forest”
hi art, i just checked BMI works registration and cant find any option to import excel…nor do i see an excel template for me to fill out…
I Figured Art, thanks…getting mixed advise as some folks only register main track and add the alts as an alt title (in BMI),
wow, thats a major undertaking if done manually..does BMI take spreadsheets for importing data?
beatslinger, i updated from K9 ult to K12 ult recently…depends on which version your updating from…had a good 7yr run with K9 ult so felt it was good value now to get the new toys, wont update again till k15 or 16
still a dilemna for me to either get composer cloud sub or CSS though (only need new strings)…
Hi Mark, when you say “production value” do you mean the quality of sample libraries used besides the mixing/mastering? is it all about the hybrid orchestra atm? just listened to audiomachine’s “so say we all” that was used on end game trailer and heard all your points…i get the emotional depth and arc thing, just the prod value still stumped…quick note i dont do trailer music just picking your brain
great job shen, cant see how your track cant be profitable with those few tweaks advised
interesting read, especially the “monkey selfie”…curious to hear the 600 tracks those endel developers signed with warner
thanks for sharing your story b1nrybl0ke, this community owes a lot to the vets like yourself, especially those who never experienced the “golden days”
from your experience, what would be your sound advice for those whose willing to stick it out the next 10-15 years?
had an issue with a lib where its not unusual to go to a 3rd rev…1 is fine, 2 is pushing it…whats frustrating is how each rev would open a new issue for them, or when they didnt catch something on the previous theyd tack it on the next one (which i feel is more a mood thing on their end)…worst part is when they reject it out of all that…backed out at 2nd rev on a few occasions and taken the track somewhere else (mind you these are excl briefs with no upfronts)
nowadays im happier when a lib rejects my track from the get go haha!
art, or actually anyone whos had exp with tunesat, how long is the delay for a placement to be detected? I had some placements from a show in animal planet back in nov-dec that wasnt picked up, does it take a while? I just have the main track on there, will it not connect the alt versions that were used to it?
