    A surprisingly good quarter for me which was helped by a track that made it on Fox Sports Men’s college basketball as well as AT&T Sportsnet and Yes network. The track was never used previously (in a library for 3 years). Art, the Yes network mainly televises Yankees baseball games.
    Hulu beat out all the other internet streaming services.
    Israel seems to pay well even though they are a pretty small country. United Kingdom does well also.

    Congrats Abellboy! That is a milestone. It took me two or three years of doing this before I had my small BMI payout. Those years were tough to get through.

    Thanks Art. I wonder if that will be a common thread?

    I agree Music1234! Big business exists to make as much money as they can. That’s just the way it works!. We are easy targets. We need to fight back! Please contact music libraries, performing rights societies, our government anyone that’s relevant! I love making music and I want to be fairly compensated for it. I don’t think that’s too much to ask!

    I never worked directly with an ad agency, but I did an internship with a big time production house (Crushing Music) back in 2002 (they are out of business now). I couldn’t get a job with them, so I tried freelancing for a few of NYC based houses. As UpFromTheSkie said it is high pressure, very competitive, need a great mix, with a quick turnaround. Freelancing can work if you find the right production house to work with. There are a bunch of them in NYC you could try.

    The stock market is the best way to go, but nearing retirement all the so called experts say if you need the money to live on you better be prepared for a five year cycle (downturn and recovery) to get back to where you were at the start of the downturn.

    Best of luck to everyone!

    I’m with BMI and have seen cue sheets in the past, but now I’ll get maybe one a year which has no correlation to the new placements I get. I don’t understand what’s going on with BMI. Maybe the libraries play into this also?

    On the other hand, I just received I nice royalty payment from BMI, so I’m happy with that.

    The twin is new to me. Correct me if I’m wrong, it is a D/A interface and has high quality dual preamps?

    Overdub,

    Warm audio sounds interesting. I was considering the 1073 by vintech and just looked at WA273.

    Thanks!
