    I have been using CATAPULT for many years. Only paid once and they send out royalties every month with no minimum.

    I have been using catapultdistribution.com/ for many years. I think they are the best. Take a look at their offers.

    I bought a used-2012- Mac Mini on EBay. The guy customized it with a hybrid internal 2T drive with a SSD 128gig for system. 16gig memory but only a double core. A quad would be much better. Hooked up HDMI to 40’ monitor. I use Digital Performer but it shouldn’t be that much different for Logic.

    I got the same response today as well. Have you ever made a sale on this site? When I check my submissions, almost half have never been listened too. I have spent hundreds of dollars on submissions that were never listened . I wrote to them about this and they gave a lot of excuses but said that they have no control over this.

    I wonder if this is Fervor / Mighty Music you are talking about. I sold them rights for $500 to one of my songs. They placed it in the TV show Mad Men and also listed it in some libraries. They keep all sync rights and own the copyright as well. The only money I get is BMI writers and it aiin’t much. I regret the deal.

    I used Broadjam for many years. Spent a lot of money on submissions and was selected many times. NOTHING ever came from that. And I hate the fact that you never knew who you were sending the music to. Some companies like PMG use Broadjam and Music Xray as their main income producer! Check out my review of PMG in the library listings.

    What I don’t understand that, if music supervisors are looking for specific tunes and people like Diamond and others want to get music to these guys, there are lots of outlets for them to explore on their own to get music to the people looking for them. That’s their job, isn’t it? So why do they charge money for people to send them possible selections? Hmm, to make money of course for themselves!!!

    I guess my original inquiry was why music supervisors, ad agencies and film producers would ask these companies to have people submit their songs for possible use in their productions. It would seem to me that, with the vast amount of really great music in all these music libraries, that a music supervisor, in less then one day, could find anything they are looking for within the libraries,

    And don’t forget what Capitol records did with their “Duophonic” system.

    I have a bunch of music on Spotify, Rhapsody, etc. If a song gets 800 plays I usually get $.003. Not enough even to bother with.
    I do not use CD Baby but have been using CATAPULT. I like them, they pay every month and there are no yearly fees.
