What next? Music for licensing, where do you show it?

Post by Quiet Bear » Fri Jun 15, 2018 7:33 pm

After I have produced Music for the Media on Cubase, How do I let others hear it? Website, You tube, Cloud, etc? I have completed over 100 Productions. Any suggestions from others doing Licensing would be much appreciated.

Not my area of expertise. But Sound on Sound magazine did an extensive series of articles last year going into the details of Library Music.

It's expensive, but the book "This Business of Music" might help you.
