Hello forum folks!

Today is the first time ever that one of my tracks - an instrumental pizzicato piece - was published by a (major exclusive German-British) library. :D

Was it originally written for a TAXI listing? - Yes.
Was it a deal directly from a TAXI forward? - No. Both TAXI submissions of the track were RETURNed. :mrgreen:
Was it peer-reviewed by former and present TAXI and/or forum members? - Yes.
Was it possible because a TAXI forum member, who already was in this library, worked together with me? - Yes.

As so often, without TAXI, this would not have happened. As so often, that the track was returned for specific TAXI listings did not mean it was not good enough for libraries. It all depends on the purpose in mind.

Fun fact: The track was created with an entirely free DAW and entirely free VIs/plugins.

Congratulations Tom! That is great!!!

In fact, there was another (2nd) deal also back in April with an LA-based library for an orchestral hybrid piece.

I was particularly pleased to see my name on the same list as a forum member who is known for his books and TAXI TV appearances. :D

I never received a counter-signed copy of the contract, but by now I am lead to assume that this is business practice. :lol: :roll:

Hey Tom,

I'm am late with this acknowledgment. Though, congratulations friend, there are hopefully many more, sooner than later. I'll have to shoot out your way hopefully some time soon, cabbage and beef. Take care.

Terrell, Dan, thanks for the thumbs up! :) In fact, I am now at three deals. The newest one being a vocal PD Christmas song (not me singing!).
