Wow that actually happened to me too last year. When the time finally came when they said they wanted the song, they went MIA. 5 months of waiting, came up empty!
Yeah, I think you are right that it’s best to find libraries that communicate regularly. It seems tough to find that with consistency.
The guy who recommended telling them a deadline said the goal of that would be to prevent a second library from coming back months later and accepting an album, and then you’d have to turn them down. This way, you’re still on good terms with them if you submit to them in the future. I like the idea but it’s hard to figure out what the right amount of time would be.
Thanks, I appreciate the perspective! Do you have a time length that you use instead of 2 weeks? Is there a happy medium in your opinion?
Thanks, I really appreciate the feedback! Yeah, I have made some strides on the engineering side but I do need some work there still. I was worried about the tracks not being simple enough for background, but I am glad to hear there may still be a use for this. I do also make simpler songs for background, but this type of arrangement interests me more.
I have been using mostly Heavyocity VST’s through Pro Tools. This track uses Novo, Forzo, Vento, and Damage 2. Really high quality stuff. I do think if I wanted to make, say, a violin solo, Heavyocity doesn’t quite get the nuance I would need in some cases. Maybe someday I can afford to snag a more versatile string VST but it works great for many applications.
Thank you all for the feedback! I will take your advice and make it a regular practice to say thanks for any significant placements. I didn’t hear back yet this time, but I know my library is busy and I think it is probably still a good thing to write a short thank you note.
Thanks, I appreciate the advice!
