Awesome, well done ! Now you have an extra follower as well.
I’d say the actual review process and level of quality control here is of some of the highest standard I have encountered. A lot of the big online libraries don’t even listen to music once you have been accepted as an author.
This is quite a simple one – does it make any difference to sales when your track is reviewed and put online? For many of us, that first hour or so when our music is making it’s way along the new items section on the homepage is the most exposure we have. It looks like to me that as soon as a track is approved it’s there, and the time it happens is totally random as the reviewers are dotted around the globe, so my question is have you noticed that more sales are garnered when that happens at a particular time of day? I know this could get confusing as we’re all in different time zones, (I am in the UK).
I had a conversation with a guy which went back and forth for over week. He kept wanting me to tweak the drums on a hip-hop track and every time I re-sent it he said ‘my supervisor says it’s not right’. In the end I just gave up. As far as I was concerned he’d heard the track on the preview and purchased it already so he knew what the drums sounded like. What was I supposed to do – spend a forty hour week working on a track for my ten dollars commission?
In short – yes it is. I have two accounts with the same email address. Neither of them sell any tunes !!
I heard that the YouTube library is very limited. Has anyone checked it out?
Didn’t even know it had happened, but I’m going to take a guess and say it was as awful as ever…
Somebody once told me that the ‘industry standard’ is 300 milliseconds, but I’ve never seen any evidence for it. I think it’s easier for video editors to not have to line up a track because it has silence at the start, so I clip mine as near as damn it to the beginning.
I speak very broken English. Just enough to get by and communicate but you have to speak very loudly and clearly to me.
I don’t speak any other languages.
