Music execs/libraries browsing SoundCloud?

Post by CTWF » Mon Dec 10, 2018 5:56 am

So, here is my question: You produced a wonderful drone but it did not get forwarded because it did not exactly match the needs of the listing, so you put it on your SoundCloud with all the right tags etc. Is it know that music execs/library owners browse e.g. SoundCloud in lieu of acquisitions? Is it a place to go for them, or do they straight go to Taxi & co.? Also, has anyone on here ever been contacted because of something they had on SoundCloud? Thanks, Tom

Music supervisors might go to soundcloud if they know someone there but it is pretty difficult to find something specific but I think that is becoming less and less common. Music supes have become accustomes to slick music search interfaces and such because it makes their life a lot more efficient. Searching for something on Soundcloud you are going to have to wade through an infinite amount of stuff that is out of scope before you find what you want.

IMO it's cool to share content from but I wouldn't depend on it much to get found by a supe. They have access to a lot more tools these days. I'm sure it happens every now and then but I doubt it's anywhere near the norm.

Cheers and good luck.

Yeah, just send the music libraries a Soundcloud link of your song to their inbox on SoundCloud. I got a deal from doing this.

Happened randomly for me, but I'm guessing it's maybe not super common.

I bought it and am going to listen tonight with a fire and some very nice wine! Perfect for a snow storm evening!
