FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1.- WHAT IS AUDIOLANDER?
AUDIOLANDER is a web portal, created by music composers, where video producers can browse, buy and download music and audio files to be inserted on video productions and film making, according to the Type of Use and the Synchronization License purchased.
As all author rights have been cleared in advance, between the author and AUDIOLANDER, Video producers, from all over the world, can find a trustful and reliable source of high quality, audio and music tracks at an affordable price and in completely legal state.
2.-WHAT IS THE COMISSION THAT AUDIOLANDER PAYS TO THE COMPOSER?
AUDIOLANDER’s comissions are variable and they depend on the number of composer’s tracks approved and the type of license chosen by the Composer upon registration, that is, Exclusive or Non-Exclusive license.
You can check, at anytime, the License Agreement and Comissions Table here.
3.-WHAT TYPE OF LICENSE AGREEMENT DOES AUDIOLANDER USE? EXCLUSIVE OR NON-EXCLUSIVE?
We use both. It’s up to the composer to choose what type of license agreement to work with.
Just be aware that most major advertising works demand exclusive agreements.
But you are free to choose either of them.
Once registered with us, you can change that option at anytime just asking, by e-mail, for a license type modification.
4.- HOW DOES AUDIOLANDER MANAGE MY AUTHOR RIGHTS OVER UPLOADED WORKS?
First of all, you will always be the author and owner of Author Rights of all works uploaded to AUDIOLANDER.
According to AUDIOLANDER contract, you only grant authorization to synchronize your work in audiovisual productions.
Additionaly, you give permission to AUDIOLANDER to manage your work upon Performing Rights Organizations (“PROs”).
All this will generate royalties and earnings on your benefit, according to contract conditions.
In relation to the process of registering your work at Performing Rights Organizations (“PROs”),
we can do that procedure for your convenience, depending of performance and duration.
Of course, you are always free to do that procedure by yourself.
5.-WHY IS THE COMPOSER SECURE WEBSITE A DIFFERENT ONE FROM THE AUDIOLANDER STORE?
AUDIOLANDER manages two different and independent Internet portals.
First one, called Composers Secure Area (www.audiolander.com/wp/sc), is specifically intended to Composers and you receive the url address, user and password to access, once registered.
In this Portal, you are provided with a secure area where you upload your work,
manage your profile and get information about your sales.
The other Portal, called the AUDIOLANDER Store (www.audiolander.com), is intended to clients, that is, Video Producers and Filmakers around the world. This is AUDIOLANDER’s online store.
AUDIOLANDER reviews and select the best tracks uploaded to the Composers Secure Area and move them to AUDIOLANDER Store, adding a audio mark to each track, to avoid illegal usage.
At this digital store, our clients will listen to demo tracks (marked with the special audio signal for protection), select, pay on-line and download the work they are obtaining a license to.
6.- WHO IS DEFINING THE PRICE FOR THE LICENCES? HOW MUCH IS A LICENSE?
Prices are determined by AUDIOLANDER, according to 3 criteria:
Type of use (How will the client use the work), Length (mins &secs) and
a permanent Market Analysis to keep our offer competitive.
You can check current prices in the ‘BUSINESS PANEL’ of the Composer Secure Area, just by clicking ‘Price List’.
7.- AS I READ IN THE CONTRACT, AUDIOLANDER SELLS SYNCING LICENSES OF MY MUSIC?
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Syncing Licenses give permission to a Video Producer to use a musical work by inserting its audio in an audiovisual production. This license only allows the insertion of the audio work and it is independent of royalties and benefits you, as a composer, can obtain for other reasons, such as Public Broadcasting, which benefits are collected by Performing Rights Organizations (“PROs”), to whom we are representing you too.
8.- HOW DOES AUDIOLANDER PROMOTE THE WEB STORE TO GET MORE VISITORS AND IMPROVE MY SALES?
Main task and investment of AUDIOLANDER is to develop marketing campaigns to promote and get massive visits to the on-line store, from all over the world. In order to achieve this, we work on developing alliances and hire different media options, using either traditional or digital media. This includes Events, Social Media and Online Advertising.
9.- WHAT IF THE MUSIC I UPLOADED TO AUDIOLANDER IS ALREADY IN SPOTIFY OR ITUNES?
No problem. Spotify and Itunes are final consumer oriented services, that is, persons that finally listen to your music.
On the other hand, AUDIOLANDER is an online store intended to Audiovisual Producers and Film Makers who need music for their works. That’s why they buy Syncing Licenses in AUDIOLANDER to be able to legally use your music in their video productions.
10.- WHAT KIND OF MUSIC SHOULD I CREATE TO BE MORE SUCCESSFUL IN AUDIOLANDER?
SHOULD IT BE VOCAL, INSTRUMENTAL? SHORT, LONG?
We suggest you upload as many works as possible since this dramatically improves your income performance and chances to get selected by our clients.
Let us remind you that AUDIOLANDER listens and selects audio tracks that will finally be in display at our online store.
Best recommendation we can give you is trying to compose thinking of specific movie scenes and situations.
For example, Suspense, Horror, Romantic, Sensual, Chasing, Sadness, etc. Also, it is a good practice to create several versions of each work in terms of different instrumental mixes and duration (3mns, 30 secs, 10 secs).
11.-WHAT IS THE RIGHT FORMAT TO UPLOAD MY WORK TO AUDIOLANDER?
In order to keep files properly ordered on our system, we have designed a specific way of naming your files in order to upload them to Audiolander. Both your audio works, in MP3 and WAV, and also your profile and track pictures (JPG), should follow this format:
—-> 1.IMAGES (Profile or Tracks Pictures. Legally owned images only):
Format: “username-nameofsong.mp3” and “username-nameofsong.wav”
Example: “jdoe-rockingking.mp3” and “jdoe-rockingking.wav”
