Thanks for your work doing this!
I would agree that the reviewers on AJ are great to work with!
A lot of buyers of music use it in video projects. They often need to edit the music to fit to the picture – when you have key changes it makes the editing much more difficult and will make your music less attractive to buyers.
Bills to pay works for me.
In my experience AJ’s review times are average to shorter than most.
What review queue problem are you referring to? Many if not most libraries take 30+ days to review a track. Anything under 30 days is a bonus not a problem. I am also not sure how upload limits improve quality – stricter review policies improve quality.
Chill out guys. AJ is very quick with their review times. Even at 12+ days they are quick. Many libraries are 30+ days.
Receiving a passive income is a dream, like many noted – and is an amazing thing to achieve without doubt.
Tim M. is way to modest. To call what he does “passive income” is very deceptive. Everyone I know that is making a living in music works very very hard. Probably putting in more hours than if they had a “real” job.
I am not exclusive so I won’t comment on the exclusive rate – but I would sure love to see the non-exclusive rate raised or an increase in the cost of a track (there has been much discussion in another thread.)
Have patience, I have worked with other libraries where between a 20 and 30 day review time was not uncommon. AJ gets a ton of submissions and it takes time to go through them all.
