You bet. Good luck!
Maybe Art can weigh in on this as he’s good at this stuff but I had two experiences with this so far. In the first case since I knew the library had to be Audiosparx, I contacted them, told them the issue and what song and in a matter of hours or a day maybe, they whitelisted the track and there were no further issues. In the other instance, I wasn’t sure which library had entered the track into Content ID so I had to request a copy of the claim from the people who received it and it showed the info I needed to determine which library put it into Content ID and requested they whitelist that track and that seemed to do it. Hope this helps
Libraries will always try new ways to improve their income. Composers will always try new ways to improve their income. I don’t consider either to be greedy for wanting to do that. That said, it’s not the composers job to try new ways to improve a libraries income without there being a direct benefit to composers. If the libraries thought the subscription model was really good for composers, they wouldn’t have to try so hard to dress it up to make it look palatable. We would be able to see that. “No” vote from me.
This one surprised me being hands down the best BMI statement I’ve ever had. Love and Hip Hop, Fox Sports and Black Ink Crew definitely threw it over the top. International was surprisingly good too.
Whats going to be funny is all the music supervisors are suddenly going to be flooded with action/trailer/sports cues all sounding like Heavyocity. lol!
Well, speaking for myself,I’ve never made software decisions based on a recognition service. The only music recognition service I’m concerned with right now is BMI and who uses the cues. They send the money. Had Damage since 2012 as well as other software similar to it. Never had a problem like that but again, maybe that’s just me.
Makes sense to me. When I was a kid in New York there was a popular black DJ on the radio named Frankie Crocker who I believe actually coined the phrase “Urban Contemporary” to describe music by black artists.To me,the term “urban music” became the new “race music” term from the 40’s and 50’s though I never gave it much thought then. In either case,it insinuates race as being exclusive to those styles and it simply doesn’t apply now like it once did. All kinds of people perform RnB and Hip Hop nowadays. We don’t say “white music” to describe folk music or country music. We call it folk or country music so yeah,I think it would be a step forward to just call music by style and not race. It’s way past time to move forward beyond that stuff. Just my thoughts.
Hey thanks a lot Alan for taking the time. Much appreciated.
Looks like it was resolved on the other end.Just heard back. Don’t know the details but thanks guys for all your input guys. Much appreciated! 🙂
