    will do. nothing yet… my guess is it takes at least one quarter to see royalties.

    Ah yeah, now that I re-think I see that. I would be glad to get $100 per minute at this stage in my journey. We’ll see.

    $150-$200/minute!? I’m pretty much a newbie at this so I would be happy getting my usual $25-$40/hr. I doubt the entire film will feature my music; but hopefully a lot. I’ve used Mixcraft for years (which has video capability) and am learning Cubase. Not sure how much syncing will be required… more like a certain length track per scene or something. Will keep ya’ll posted when and if this happens.

    When I signed with 2 or 3 libraries they asked for everything I had. Then they went through them and decided what to keep. I’m also now doing some custom composing by their request. Wish I got paid up front for this but am hoping it leads to use/income. Keep me fresh and creative too!

    Wow, great thread ya’ll!! Good to know I don’t swim these waters alone! I’ve only been seriously doing this for income for a year, learning as I go. I actually have two libraries asking me to compose certain cues and styles for them. Fun, time-consuming and hopefully leads to income!

    My income from RF sites where I’ve had tracks for the past year is helpful but not enormous. But I will take it from wherever it comes, for sure. Fortunately, I have income from a side business and other sources; doubtful music will ever be my main income but I can dream. 🙂 I try to compose at least one track a week, sometimes more; be it a 30 second sting out cue or an elaborate Disney type piece.

    Yeah, certainly not complaining… but I at least thought the payout would be dollars and not cents. Seems like I can make more on cheap RF sites than doing reality TV. 🙂 And… still waiting to see how/if that viral video pays off! 😉

    A new cup holder would be nice!! 🙂 In case you’re curious, here’s the clip starting right where my piece starts as they open the garage. Maybe the one-two punch at the end will let me buy seat covers for my Ferrari? 🙂

    Chuck, that’s basically what I have. Most of my tracks are in 5-6 non-exclusive libraries and on a half dozen RF sites. Once I start making some income from these I may quit the RF scene (doesn’t pay enough IMHO). For some reason, I’ve never liked exclusive deals but decided to test it out and put 18 tracks exclusively with a library in the Netherlands who seem to be busy promoting their composers. We’ll see how my investments do!
