This is a very important topic that envato are going to have to look at sooner or later or they will start to loose some of their top artist. Most other top stock music site offer the artist option to filling out there pro details. Some of the top artist here are missing out on a lot of royalty fees from tv companies that are rightfully theirs regardless if there music is licensed under a royalty free contract here at audio jungle or not. I think Most artist here are confused about this as your music is sold under a royalty free license policy.
Every single piece of music used on tv is assigned to a cue sheet which is then forward to the pro. With a relative fixed royalty fee.The tv company has already budgeted and pays the royalty fees to the pro.It makes no difference to a tv company if it is royalty free or not they still have budgeted to pay.
If the track is not registered the money sits there unclaimed with the Pro collection agency. I can only imagine how much money Tim Micmorris is owed and is sitting there waiting for him to claim it. .You can actually claim back I think up to 3 to five years once u register your music.
The easiest way forward is by Allowing artist here to register there music which is the only way for us to be able to collect our own fee from t.v companies which is rightfully ours
And this would have no impact whats so ever on the royalty free licenses being sold here.
The majority of other stock music royalty free sites out there work this way for a reason.There is no other way around it, thats is how it has always worked in the music business and if envato are finding more and more that there artists music being sold here and is being used on tv then they have a responsibility to comply with how this end of the music business works.
Just my humble opinion Cheers! Melodee.
Welcome to the jungle..!!!
and nice work on your first track, sound great.
Best of luck Melodee
Hey Brandon, Nice post and very inspiring!!
I would recomend the Sure “sm58 a beta’ which has a little bit more top end and pressence than the standard sm58. It is much sweeter on the top end and has a much stronger output level.. It is totally worth the extra few bucks.
Hi Daniel Not sure what protools version you are using with the mbox. But there are a few ways of solving this problem.Older versions of protools before 7.le have a ‘low latency input’ feature you can use with the mbox. But if it is a newer version you can select from the track menu “input only monitoring” which will get rid of the latency..you might have to mute the record channel also but you will still be hearing the input with out any latency. Good luck
A very important topic guys, which I think needs a lot of discussion. I am new to this whole audio jungle thing and royalty-free music and I am only just starting to look into how this industry deals with different licensing fees, I does make me wonder that $14 seem ridiculously low for this kind of license for t.v. and can only long term undermine the artists and value of music here. Interesting times ahead.
