Has anyone submitted music to these guys?
Guys, thanks for the “flood” 🙂 of comments, thoughts and wisdome!
I joined on exclusive library in the Netherlands. Almost been two yeas and nothing. They keep saying they’re making inroads to get music placed. Trouble is, deal with them is 5 years; good thing is, only signed 22 tracks.
Interesting thread. How exactly does Competitrack work and how does one use it? I signed up a while back but am clueless.
Also, thanks to Tunesat info, I have had a song used on a religious station for many months now, several times a month. Will that generate anything? Thanks.
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.May 23, 2014 at 11:00 am in reply to: Submitting WFH Cues after being accepted by a library #16422
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! 😉
