    Most distribution services require you to classify it in one or two genres. You might want to wait till you have enough of tracks in a single genre.

    Hi Walden, you could also look into Spotify and Apple music, the returns are not much but if your tracks are radio friendly you could do better. Nobody can stop you from putting up non exclusives as they are your tracks. I have a bunch of albums for distribution through a service called Ditto. Best of luck

    Hey Art, did you create separate registrations for alternate edits or just the main track. Thanks

    Hi Art, could you post a sample entry for the soundexchange spreadsheet. Communicating with them is very slow. Thanks

    You could also have melodic tension by using repeated motifs or unusual scales or you can think of rhythmic tension (repeated rhythmic figures)

    Hi mmuser,

    In my opinion, since you have not used any samples in this track and it was made entirely with live instruments, you do not need a sample clearance. Sample clearance is sometimes required when you use sample libraries. Most sample libraries have a disclaimer for allowed usage. I hope that helps. Best of luck

    I did hear back from the people at sourceaudio and can confirm that the detection service is not an add on but a separate service and is very reasonably priced. You can confirm with your PRO if they will accept their data or not. Tunesat really need to bring their prices down…cheers

    Hey Jab, I have had a little luck with world music on P5. Although world music is not really mainstream, most libraries have at least some World music. However, not too many non exclusive libraries left around except for the so called Royalty free sites. I would refer to the thread about non exclusive libraries and see the libraries mentioned there. Best,

    Thanks BEATSLINGER, trying to work it out, at least they are easier to communicate with than ASCAP

    You have come to the right place. I suggest going into all the archives over here and doing that research for yourself. Every composer has unique skills and there is no one size fits all approach here. Best of luck

    Hi Diehard, I think your music is well suited for the royalty free market on sites such as P5 and AJ. I think you will be much better off in the long run if you hold the rights and market it yourself. Best of luck

    Hey Chuck,

    I think that you should go for it. In my experience, whenever I have written something in a non familiar genre, the first few cues are no good but if you keep doing it it starts to get better. Listen to a lot of real orchestral music and study a little counterpoint. East West is good enough to get started. Good luck and have fun !!!
