”If all the full time pro’s are complaining….that’s something I personally want to pay attention to”
We’re not all complaining.
Well this is all very encouraging. The PRS pays next month and you guys have given me at least some optimism… 🙂February 25, 2021 at 4:44 am in reply to: Can you still use your own music in your own content after selling to a library? #37413
As soon as I have written any exclusive work and the contract is signed I consider it gone. I don’t send it to anyone or sample it or rework it or try to use it in any way. The library will send it where they want to and do with it what they will – I just move on to the next project.
I’m full time – I got my first ever back-end royalty in 2011 – it was £23 and I purchased a frame for the PRS statement with that lofty amount printed on it and a botle of cheap bubbly to celebrate with my wife. The framed statement is still on the wall in my studio. Five years later I quit my job, as my earnings (which are almost entirely all back end) had surpassed my salary. If it all ended tomorrow and I had to go out and get a ”real” job I’d be thankful I had five years doing the thing I love for a living.August 25, 2020 at 3:12 pm in reply to: Selling via WordPress BeatStars Widget on personal web site? #35659
I notice Beatstars isn’t listed here – is it somewhere one can make money?
I love Shooting Star – I can definitely hear that being used. Have you tried submitting to any libraries?July 27, 2020 at 1:50 am in reply to: Newb wondering if he can hang with the big boys/girls? :) #35470
Go for it. Spend as much time making music and as little time complaining about how it’s not like it used to be as you can
Busy working – I have twins due this week (!) so trying to get a ton of music finished so I can take some time off.
Welcome @BeatSqueezer – I’m sure you’ll find MLR invaluable.
It doesn’t necessarily have to be either. A lot of UK libraries are back end only. Have you tried asking the library you are referring to or have you found them listed here?
