These are the tracks I tried to post
I’m having a bunch of problems with the site

Thanks again Mark.
Mixing that stuff must be a nightmare. It sounds so dense (in a good way).April 27, 2018 at 12:07 pm in reply to: Same track used in multiple movie trailers recently #29939
Thanks for the input Mark.
I’m trying my hand at making trailer music now. I’m not where I need to be yet by any stretch, but it’s a fun and challenging project. By the time I get to where I need to be, things will probably have evolved, but it’s cool knowledge to have.
Did you do that Venom track? If so, mind sharing where I could listen to it on it’s own? I need to study those drums to see what I’m not doing. If not, that’s cool.April 25, 2018 at 10:18 am in reply to: Same track used in multiple movie trailers recently #29906
Teach me your ways Mark!
I would love to hear the two tracks side by side
Thanks for the insight everybody. I knew something was up with the whole “accounting nightmare” excuse that was given.
@Mark_Petrie – I’m sort of struggling with the “up front fee = no licensing” statement you made. Are you saying that it’s either one or the other? Up front fee or back end?
Thanks for the feedback PeteJ. I’m still struggling with HOW to compose library music. I’ve placed a few simple hip-hopish tracks on a couple of high profile (I think they’re high profile) shows but when I try to pitch those types of tracks to other libraries, they’re not into them. I guess because they have a TON of that type of stuff because it’s so easy to make.
So then I get a little more complicated with my compositions and then I get told by libraries that I’m being too creative, lol … I’m still trying to find that happy medium.
I wasn’t suggesting anyone was.
But if people NOT in this forum who also create production music had a similar approach to a naming convention, things would get confusing quick … I’d assume.
But if everbody with a rock guitar in there track named their track “ROCK GUITAR [numeral]”, how confusing is that for the Music Supervisor?
