looks like theyre gone for good…unless they changed siteMarch 28, 2023 at 12:47 pm in reply to: Has tunesat became obsolete ? is there somebody flying the plane ? #42187
They miss half of what shows up in my statements, and only cover US and Europe. their paid service isnt any better. just treat them as a guide and nothing more. had a great chat with david the COO of trqk a few years ago at the PMC, thinking of giving them a go once budget permits…
RM90 if you meant late detections showing up yes i get that too, sometimes in bulk. i also notice usually a halt in detections over the weekend and would start up again (sometimes in bulk) by tues. along with the lates…
what i was saying (not sure if sweeter songs meant this also) is that detections keep going past 50, you just have to pay to see the details either by piece or subscribe to monthly plan. they dont really stop you just cant see them. i opted to try the monthly just to see what they were (big mistake explained in my previous post)
ya i can confirm sweetersongs assessment on the detection process. i would just remove the particular track off the list to not clog up the screen especially if its just the familiar redundant detects
and just an FYI, if you opt for a monthly subscription and decide to cancel later, they will delete your account and will not default back to free (learned that the hard way)
i think its worth noting that there are libs that have portals where you can sub your tracks too along with status updates, and libs/labels you have to email with a link to your album…they work differently and should be approached accordingly…so based on that, with libs you have established, id give them a little more leeway, but as far as cold emails, thats the wild west im referring too
priority is a 2 way street
i once waited 3 months on a lib who wanted to “hold on” to my tracks that fits a future project, they ended up not taking them and scratching the project….never doing that again…
ironically, my best libs are the easiest to work with….
its good bringing back dates art, I would’ve been lost and demotivated with research back when i joined without it.
I have also learned this the hard way. now i don’t follow “proper” etiquette anymore. unless you’ve already signed the agreement, no reason you cant shop it elsewhere (keep short deadlines for yourself). if ever they get back to you just tell them its no longer avail but you can offer another album/track thats similar. dont be afraid to voice out your timeline and your options, i’ve had a few get back to me quick after that, and others get no reply (which is fine and an answer in itself). at the end of the day, its how buddy buddy you are to your contact per how to go about it….and thats the most impt….March 26, 2022 at 1:04 pm in reply to: Buotique libraries, niche focus on experimental sound #39612
dont let it get to you bro, i’ve been there. everyone here plays close to the vest, nature of the biz…expect snarky remarks and hostile replies if you do something unorthodox or ignorant.
nonetheless this is the best resource for sync licensing bar none. Art really created a great website here and I dont regret paying the yearly fee 5yrs in a row now….
RM90 gave great advise, come back with more specific questions after checking out labels and im sure a lot more will chime in, good luck
funny you mentioned that. had the same thing happen recently. so now i wonder, does the old track become obsolete? am i really growing my catalog or just revising it?
Happy New Year everybody! im a few hours away on my 4th year of doing this. I almost made it to five digits. nowhere close to my goals but I’ve come to accept my trajectory and just happily go with the flow. hopefully once things open up and go back to normal (2022?) things might start snowballing for me as i’ve made good strides in my networking & opportunities (and also based on everyones 5th year data). hope everyone had a good year and may a successful 2022 come upon us all.July 3, 2021 at 12:16 pm in reply to: Success in responding to “ASAP” briefs from Libraries #38273
majority of my recent statement has been from briefs, some not even for the specific brief. i havent done any 24hr turnarounds though.
also i think my productivity improved when i started mixing things around to keep my mind fresh (album, brief, RF, vocal songs). i easily burnout or get writers block when doing only one genre for long stretches
my best qtr so far, and my longest placement yet (3:30)
