Advice, thanks for enlightening me that titles are meaningless for tunesat, that really changes everything… i am just going to get back to work now and forget about this for a few months but it is frustrating not knowing who made the placement… still brightens up my day just the same 🙂
MichaelL and bradymusico, wise words… i am disappointed that the backend would be so little. Network TV i would have thought more. Not worth chasing down IMO Thanks to all for the feedback
Thanks for your reply, advice. The way i have set up things is that i have the free account with tunesat and have uploaded those tracks which i have on my RF sites, these same tracks are with a few NE libraries but are all retitled in those libraries (as expected). For this reason i am quite certain that it was from a RF site. I will contact the sites but i dont expect a response, any suggestions on how to contact the producers of the show. Thanks again Advice for your kind advice.. cheers
Thanks to Tunesat i just discovered a placement of mine on CNN. Would really appreciate some guidance on what to do next. I suppose i need to track down the producers of the show. It seems it may have been purchased on an RF site as it does not show any retitling. THANKS
So i signed up for the free account and have found several detections of a track on Channel 5 (UK). It has most likely been purchased from an RF site and i have no idea whether it is worth pursuing or even how to pursue it. Any suggestions will be most welcome, THANKS
Hello folks, i too am pleased at my royalty statement. Like ChuckMott I am relatively new, this being the start of my third year at this and starting to understand the game here. My royalty statement was about the same as the previous quarter but the cool thing is that it is about ten times greater than the same time last year. It is inspiring to hear the figures some of the senior players get and I feel confident that it is just a matter of time and hard work. Persistence does pay off !!! A big thanks to everyone who posts here as all this information helped me a lot in getting this far.
Where do you find the most errors or chances for you to follow up/claim. Are they sales through RF sites or NE libraries. I would expect ex libraries to have better paperwork etc. Which tracks would be the best for one to upload during the free trial ? Thanks 🙂
i suppose that if you have a network with many labels, supervisors and publishers who would be interested it may get you somewhere. Personally I would not as I have always thought it to be too time consuming and would rather spend that time writing 🙂
Hello all… I was wondering if you normally register all edits of a cue including timed edits such as 30 sec 60 sec and also mix edits such as No lead etc separately with ASCAP in the case of working with RF or NE libraries. These things get so confusing sometimes… thanks for responding. 🙂
This kind of administrative work comes difficult for a musician and I guess many folks would prefer to not deal with it. Someone who knows the ropes should offer this as a service in return for a percentage. Might be a good side business. Could any of the seniors enlighten us as to how much they have claimed and gotten back from these proceedings and how much time they have put into it. Many thanks.
Great question yzzman1. I don’t have any success stories for you but I would imagine that in many cases, the publisher/library involved would have an equivalent interest or responsibility in having the cue sheet correctly filed or rectified in case it wasn’t. Also, how would you know that a cue sheet has been incorrectly filed, Tunesat perhaps or is there any other way.
@More Advice, lets hear some more details. Composers need to come together to protect ourselves from being exploited like this. Boycott those libraries that indulge in these practices. Tools cannot replace a skillful composer. If you browse through most RF sites, you will see that most of the stuff is not up to the mark for broadcast. I believe the market is slowly correcting itself and many guys who were part timers are moving on to other things. It is really unfortunate that composers do not have any union or coop or such. We are the most important part of the chain of supply. Without our work, neither the libraries nor the broadcasters can survive.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year. May it bring lots of success for us all !!!
I am very happy with the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro. I used to use the Sony 7506 but realized that the sound does not translate well at all. Monitors are the best but you can do a reasonably good job with good headphones
Try out the Steinberg UR28M, very clean sound. Great convertors at a reasonable price
