AlumoAudio saidWow, considering your background, I must say that your productions sound fantastic!
And this is where I’ve been getting stuck. My RF musical output is very low (probably because I’m not a ‘professional composer’, coming from a Dance music background and have a limited musical knowledge – so it takes me a very long time compared to other composers to get things sounding ‘right’) yet when I do make tracks, I prefer to create specifically for the RF market, as this is best suited for the music I create.
My thoughts exactly! Maybe it’s time to AlumoAudio submits his material to some bigger libraries.
I know its tempting to see where our work ends up but using Tunesat to track AJ tunes sounds like torture mate.. I use it for my PRO stuff but thats it.. Until AJ step it up ignorance is bliss
Haha, tell me about it! I’ve done pretty well until now not to log in and check TuneSat for the very reasons you mentioned..But when one is receiving messages and comments daily from YouTube users on my videos saying “it’s that song from so and so commercial” and ‘I heard this last night on so and so show” I cracked and had a little peep. Bad idea! It basically resulted in a knee jerk reaction from me to be honest. That’ll teach me!
may I ask if you are signed with PRO at all? I have no knowledge of these things, but maybe it’s something you should consider doing with your future tracks.
Yes I’m with a pro from another country than my home country. Had no problems. This might not be the best choice for everybody, but it was for me. It depends a bit on where you are located, where your majority of placements will be etc as moneyflow between some countries can be very slow.
Okay, thanks for the info! That’s something to consider!
One more thing. I thought that if I removed my tracks from here, re-titled them and then registered under PRO, I assume then my AJ-customers wouldn’t be approached by my PRO?
Michikawa saidThis simply is not true for all PRO`s. I`ve said it before and I say it again. Don`t always go with your national PRO. Shop around and choose the one that best fits your needs. Some PRO´s are really bad choices for library writers, and other have solutions that work great for library music.
PRO systems haven’t really been able to offer much more than “everything under PRO control or nothing under PRO control” type of solutions.
Musidale, may I ask if you’re are member of your non-national PRO and how your experiences have been? Have you had any difficulties?
I also agree with Michikawa. “everything under PRO control or nothing under PRO control”, that’s very well put.
That is really what we have in Finland. Joining my national PRO seems like a bad deal. If I would join them, all the music I’ve written would automatically be monitored by them. This means that if I joined my national PRO, i could no longer submit tracks here. Of course I want my “real” music be registered under a PRO, but I don’t necessarily need to register all the library music I have here, for example. It really stinks to choose between these two.
Do other PRO’s let you decide which of your tracks are under their “control”?
Thank you all for your replies and input, I am investigating this matter. Already called my national PRO, they asked me to e-mail there specialist on this thing.
if I remove a track from my AudioJungle portfolio, am I then free to register it with a PRO? Not joined a PRO yet, but considering yet.
And moreover, what if that track already has, let’s say, 100 sales. When the PRO starts monitoring that track, could that cause a problem with those customers who purchased it before, when it was still royalty free track.
Because of these new Envato platform changes, I might have to stop selling here and move my tracks elsewhere. I see that many (almost all of them) other libraries accept PRO registered tracks and therefore it might be wise join a PRO…
Any thought on this?
Bump! So, any official answer on this…? Who is the seller?
Yes I started uploading music in November 2014 and this is my first January
I started uploading here on November 20th 2012. During November-December I made 29 sales. Then 2 sales in January 2013.
So sales can dip, especially if you are a beginner and your portfolio is not that big. So hang in there and upload more music!
I’m a newcomer and so far my only sales been on the days I’ve uploaded something and been on the front page. The search tools are not really good for profiles that haven’t been around for long.
Upload one track a day, not many tracks on the same day. This way you can maximize your front page visibility!
