How long does a library take to add your tracks to their catalog?

Post by kyliecouper » Fri Feb 15, 2019 4:08 pm

For those of you with lots of experience, how long does it take for a library to add your songs to their catalog? - after you have been accepted, and sent them all the edits they need.

I know it will be different for different libraries. I am just curious to get an idea of people's different experiences.

Hi Kyliecouper,

It varies by a HUGE amount.
I have had it take as little as a week to as long as never!
The only way to usually know is if the tracks show up in your PRO account.

Although some libraries will only register the tracks with your PRO once they are going to be used by a show.


Hope that helps,
Tim

Huge range for this, so no "safe" answer. In my limited experience - I've seen them go up in less than a week, and as long as a couple months. I've heard from others that they've seen 6 months go by. There are some things to consider though, what YOU see and what the CLIENT sees may be very different. For example the library might send your cues to the show they're working on before they go up on their Source Audio page if it's a show that is in production. Lots of variables.

Agreed, there is no set time. Each library has different procedures and time varies. A smaller library MAY get to it quicker than a bigger library (but I have also seen it go the other way, too)

A library I'm signed to in the UK took a while. It was about 7-8 months before I started showing up in search results there. That doesn't mean, though, that they weren't pitching the song before then.
