Fully agree… I’ve started submitting my individualised songs to libraries… My tastes do lean towards the mainstream… So, hopefully that’ll help.
My 2c… I’m a fulltime muso… But, relative newb in the library business… Just 2 years in.
While writing for libraries, I don’t worry about artistry… Just match the brief… And off it goes.
To satisfy my artist side, I compose and produce songs without any tangible outlet. I do this maybe once a month… Just so I don’t forget why I started doing music in the first place. Keep the music fan alive… 🙂
Wow that is awesome! Just what I needed! Thank you Brian!
Thanks Art! Thats very helpful.
If, as you say its a 50/50 deal then yes, all 16 will get the composer paid 50 percent of net earning for each placement.
@vasim… That depends on the contract you have with the library. There are some libraries that pay no share of sync fees to the composer… Only back end royalties.
In some cases, the library splits the publishing share with the production house/network.
The libraries I work with send me a quadterly statement at the end of every quarter and then send me any money thats due to me via paypal 60 days after the statement is generated. HTH!
Hi uniqueplace… Thanks for replying.
I agree with your analysis… Am now only sending in tracks for specific briefs and not just uploading blindly
Thanks Musicmatters and Kubed for your kind replies.
I have been doing decently in the RF segment… but, as you say, its basically turned into a dead end… doesn’t seem to be any growth prospects there.
@Musicmatters… Thank you! With the RF segment the way it is, I’m trying to focus more on the exclusive library side of the business… while not completely giving up on the RF side. Write, submit, forget… great words… 🙂
@Kubed, Thanks for your advice… The 30 tracks are not all for custom requests… maybe about 10 to 15 are… the others are general uploads in genres based on my talks with the library… I will begin searching for another exclusive library to put my eggs into… Meanwhile, I’m dying of excitement to receive my first backend payout… small as it may be… 🙂
Thank you both once again!February 18, 2020 at 6:23 pm in reply to: Should non us-residents fill out the 1049nr form and pay taxes on US royalties? #34360
