Instrumental Cue Length Question

Post by Merryband1 » Tue Jun 04, 2024 8:24 pm

Sorry I've been away so long, but our family is undergoing a lot of health challenges.
Anyway, I spotted a couple of TAXI listings that I might already have something that's submittable. However, the listing says "around 1.5 minutes long," and a couple of my pieces are around 2 minutes. Would that extra length cause the screener to reject my cue? Has that ever happened to any of you? Thanks for your advice!

Happy to be talking music at all with everything that's going on!

Hi Marion!
So sorry about the health issues your family has been dealing with. Sending lots of love and hugs. :D

If a listing says "around 1.5 minutes long", I would stick to that very closely and not deviate more than a few seconds. Two minutes would definitely not cut it. We've seen screener's return for as little as 10 seconds off the requirement. Hopefully, you can trim the track(s) down to around 1.5 minutes and submit.

Best of luck!
:) Casey

Thank you, Casey!
I was thinking that, too. Maybe I'll just write something from scratch, or wait for another listing.
Thank you for your kind thoughts about what our family is going through. It isn't easy, and knowing that people care really does help!
Love & hugs from Mom and me to you and yours!
Merry
