FAQ’s

Q: Is the sync-rep contract for one song?

A: Yes but we may add additional songs later, we will send you a Schedule A link if we identify another track or send you a schedule A to incorporate your entire catalog.

Q: I haven’t registered my songs with a Performing Rights Organization (PRO). Is that something I would need to do now?

A: Yes, we recommend registering all music at time of release.  You need to choose ASCAP, BMI or SESAC as an artist, once you setup your account, you can register your works.  We we are affiliated with all as a label so we can do administration as necessary.

Q: I may not be interested in having my music used for commercials or as background music for selling products.

A: All Sync offers are discussed with our Artist at the time they are made, we would discuss the proposed use prior to executing any sync deal.

Q: Why are your sync-rep agreements exclusive?

A: Our sync rep contracts are exclusive because of the time and energy that we will invest in an artist or a song. Unlike many of the non-exclusive sync libraries online that have millions of tracks (that will likely never be found by music supervisors) we actually personally pitch specific songs to music supervisors for specific projects. We identify tracks that match the project brief, genre and mood so your song has the best chance of getting placed.

Our goal is to have a very very small and exclusive library of just 25-50 songs in very specific genres and moods. We spend resource time internally doing this and have out-of-pocket expenses promoting digitally to generate buzz among industry professionals. All of this cost us money and our time so it’s very difficult to leave the back door wide open and allow a third-party sync rep opportunity to swoop in and take the placement or a music supervisor from contacting our artist directly.

Q: Why do you re-register my track when a synchronization is done?

A: The re-registration of a title with the project name is done so the royalties from that specific use can be tracked. When the music is published in the sync use, the user is required to provide Que-sheet tracking of their use in the market place, this reporting is crucial for compliance with the original contract terms but also for tracking royalties associated with that use. The dual registration of the track at the PRO allows royalties from all other public performance and uses to be tracked separately and paid directly to the artist. The newly registered title then tracks just the royalties from the master & sync use.
