Hey, Tunesat has just detected one of my cinematic songs in a youtube video with more than a half million of views (made in less than one month!) Outstanding :D
Damn. That’s a lot. I have an old Tunesat account that has several detections unlisted because the trial’s over. It’s fun to find out where the music is being used but at the same time. Paying for Tunesat is a pure loss if it’s not PRO music.

Not sure if I feel it’s worth it without getting the PRO.

+1. At the end of the day, Tunesat holds no real purpose for marketplace composers like us, other then essentially being a very expensive ego massage.

Whilst it’s fun and exciting at first to see our works used on TV, the novelty soon wears off, and all you’re left with is a bitter taste of seeing hundreds, if not thousands of dollars of earned revenue just sit there, completely out of our reach. It’s all ‘look, but no touch’.

I certainly wouldn’t pay over $200 a month to do that. That would be crazy!

I don’t really see it as an “ego massage”, of course it is nice to know how your music is being used, but it can also be useful to know. I certainly wouldn’t pay $200 a month, I agree that it wouldn’t be worth it, but I might be tempted to pay $9 a month (which was the lowest fee that was possible as far as I could see)for a limited time period.

I’d rather know how my music was being used than be oblivious to it.

Corel Video Studio is a very reasonable price and ideal for the job, I used it for years, from when it was Ulead Video Studio, and although I have Premiere Pro, I’m still fond of Corel.

I asked the support why there are no web detections and this was the answer:

Currently, our web crawler scans 800,000 multimedia files per month. It’s a cumulative process and will pull in more detections each day, as we cycle through millions of sites. As for youtube, we examine the top 1,000 viewed videos each day plus we will have a general crawler sampling other youtube content. Due to the broad span of Youtube, we cannot guarantee when our crawler will find and process your videos.

Hopefully the crawler will find some tracks too… but it looks like it takes a bit more patience.. ;)

Ah, I see, thanks, Mat! :)

50 TV channel uses of my best selling track have been found now!!, with a further 18 that I don’t think I can see unless I upgrade. Interestingly there are no web detections, though this track also has plenty of uses online.
That’s awesome man! Congratulations! :D

Thanks, Sam! :)

I started to use tunesat yesterday. No results so far. I have a question. Did you fill “composer” field with your audiojungle nick in every of your tracks on tunesat ? Does it affects for search results ?

No, I just used my name, but maybe you can put that info in the custom column?

Congrats Sir Andy, that’s awesome!! It’s an exceptional great tune and it’s good to see where it’s used!
I wish mine would be found somewhere too… but until now I didn’t get any detections, whether TV nor Web…

Thank you, Sir Mat of Steinshire! :) I’m very sure you are going to find numerous uses of your music on TV!!

Have fun building your new showreel :D

Thanks :) Just to clarify, the uses are all of the same commercial using my music, so the fifty detections that I can see are how many times this commercial has aired since I signed up for the trial.
