Great post, Andrew, and thank you for sharing! It's very encouraging to read for me and I imagine many others.

One question for you - how does your income breakdown (roughly) between instrumentals and songs? I see mostly instrumentals on your soundcloud but I know sometimes people don't put songs signed to libraries up there.

Congrats and onward and upward!

Hey Mike!

I actually don’t post about 80-90% of the music I made on SoundCloud.. sometimes because I’m asked not to, other times because there is simply no need. Mainly I just use it as a quick way to share a specific song or genre with a current or new contact.

Having said that, the vast majority of my income has been from instrumental stuff. It’s been the bulk of my work so far, simply because I can crank them out faster than vocal stuff where it’s more back and forth. I think both options are equally viable really. It’s just a matter of finding what works best for you imo.

Best of luck!
Andrew

" I actually don’t post about 80-90% of the music I made on SoundCloud.. sometimes because I’m asked not to, "

Same here, I post some composition that I am not to attached to and are okay and not mastered to the fullest potential .I have found out that "the free version of SC" (although checking the box that does not allow for anyone to download) it's not true, I don't know how to or do it myself and will never do but I know lots of people who can do it in 30 seconds. Now I can't speak for the PRO version since I have not submitted for this, until I am guaranteed that it is safe I will not post compositions that I am really attached to.

I have had bad experiences in the past with track getting ripped off and used without permission.
