Is this song sync-able

Post by chrismugs » Sat Mar 30, 2019 7:18 am

I wrote this song with a co-writer and was wondering if the song (You Rule My World) is sync-able and is the production current enough:

Whaddup Chris! Good to see your name pop up in the forums again, my friend.

Your link is showing a "This track was not found" error on SoundCloud........

But even without listening, I'll say that technically ANY (well, figuratively speaking) song is "syncable"...... it just depends on what the opportunity is. Do you have a particular opportunity or listing in mind? Or are you just making a general track that has a high probability of landing a placement?

Hey Matt,

They did claim the Titanic was 'unsync-able'....but that's a story for a different post!

Good point. i did not have any particular listing in mind, just wanted to create something with a modern, tropical pop style vibe.

Cool song, man! It's too bad you didn't have this one done a month or so ago, as there were a few Tropical Pop listings back then. Well, there might be some now too, I just haven't checked.

One thing you may want to try from a production end is to get a little more atmospheric with your reverbs during the verses. Things sound a bit dry to me there, for this particular style of music.

But as for it's "sync ability", this Tropical Pop stuff seems to have legs. Although it's not as big as it was a few years ago, it seems to be sticking around. So having a small handful of these in the can is a good idea. I just had Tropical Pop songs used on Kobra Kai and All American, so I know for sure that shows are currently using it.
