Wow! I'm being paid to sing
« on: January 16, 2012, 09:05:31 AM »
I got an invoice from Moo Moo Music this morning. I had 3 songs accepted and they have now run for 152 days on a playlist. This is part of the email I got

Hi Dave Stevenson (Dave Stevenson),

Congratulations - Not only are your tracks getting exposure in venues throughout Australia but you've also earned a royalty payment.

So you can spend more time creating tracks we've generated your invoice so you don't have to!

Please refer to the Artist License Agreement to understand how the payment is calculated  - Please note an ABN is not a must have, however we will need to withhold 49% tax if an ABN is not supplied (not applicable if you are outside of Australia).

As per the Artist License Agreement, if your payment due is under $50 then we will hold payment until the total cumulative payment reaches $50.

You will be paid within the next 30 days by the Payment Method indicated above. Any changes to your Payment Method must be made via the Account Details section of the Moosicians login within 7 days of receipt of this email.

Moo Moo Music








TAX INVOICE









DATE:

16 Jan 2012


My payment amounts to $5.90. so, at this rate it will be 5 years before I reach the $50 mark and I get to see something tangible. Either I shall have to have a lot more songs accepted or be on a lot more playlists. It's not very profitable being in show-business .....is it  :'(

How's yours doing Dino?

LOL  anyway you look at it for us little folk that's pretty cool and a good feeling to know someone is listening to your work :) wonder why there no more home based places like that ?

Well done mate!

Are these originals?

Well done Dave.  I got my payment notice yesterday $5.04c.  That's $7.50 approx over the year.  I only have two instrumentals on Moo Moo in the "Cafe Chill" playlist.  Also, they already take about 50% of my royalties because i dont have a Business Number unfortunately so if not for that i would have earned around $15.00.

I reckons its only 3 1/2 years until I reach the $50.00 mark and then i will be of on a long trip spending the cash.  haha NOT
 
What music did you get onto the site and which Playlist are you on??

I think Toads has been earning some Moo Moo cash as well by the way.

Well at least it shows that us indies can, at least get to the public one way even if it does become MUSAK in elevators, cafes and supermarkets. Maybe we should start selling playlists of our own to those that buy.

The advantage you have Dave & Dino is vocals, something that I will NEVER have! So heck, I have to post 3x the tracks to get an even return!  ;) 

I have been trying this for a few years thru sites like Noise Trade, Bandcamp, Soundclick, Jamendo...and a few others. MooMoo is the first one to come thru with a STEADY return, and Jamendo was next with 2 songs rights bought for some indie movies....just keep posting them and eventually someone will grab them I guess!  :P 8)

So how much do these sites pay...Just wondering...doesnt seem like their paying very much (however something is better than nothing)

 8)

whats the dollar amount one would get paid if songs rights bought...Also would you be giving away the song rights or do you still own them.

I have sites I submit to as well however just wondering what the pay is for the moomoo and Jamendo

Congrats to all who have made dough doing this homerecording thiing...its a tough gig.

Each site has a different way to figure out the payments, so it would be better to go & read a copy of the terms of service for each of them to get the latest info Vincent.

I look at it this way, my tracks are making $$ instead of sitting around on the old HDD, regardless of the total amount at this point in time! As for the ones that I personally licensed to the indie films, lets just say that it paid for some software updates.... ;D 8)

Sounds like you are way2underpaid, I say.  ;D

But yes, better than them sitting on a HDD and doing nothing, so congratulations!  8)

Just got another payment from MooMoo, and it was a nice surprise for sure! Not getting rich, but hey, it's something...

Did any other MooMoo-ers get a little something from them this year?

I had on recently but then again, I only have two songs on playlists.  They don't pay my royalties until it accumulates to $50.00 in total rather than paying $6-7 every six months
 
Memo to self:  Load more song on Moo Moo Music

neilmac, Moo Moo Music is a Music Library site that allows folks to "Rent" your track for "muzak" types of stuff...restaurant - coffee shop - mall - elevator background "muzak" etc + some other types of leases. You get x amount per play, and they will only send you a payment if you hit $50 woth of plays...which at something like a penny a play takes a LONG time to add up! LOL

Mr. Dino, I would definitely get more of your style up there! I have 37 tracks up, with probably 30-40 rejections overall.

The surprise is that I have now got 2 payments in a row, so once again at least the music is bringing in SOMETHING instead of just sitting here on the HDD, or on Soundclick - MP3 - Soundcloud, etc....

Oh I might try that smurf. except they may pay me NOT to sing.
perhaps some of my instrumental stuff would suit an elevator (so long as you dont get stuck in it for 4 hours :o ).
 
do u have to pay to register?

Hey Al,
 
No fee to register at all
http://www.moomoomusic.com.au/
 
Simply join the web site and upload some music.  There are many categories.  I feel they prefer non-vocal tracks as well, so , your instrumentals may be the go.  Worth a try.

Yup, think of Instrumental Smooth Jazz-Chill-Lounge-Easy Listening, they DO accept others but this is what is "selling" the most at the moment....

I tried some Ambient-New Age-y type stuff, but they rejected all but one, and that one had a solid, underlying "beat" to it. It seems they are net really looking for the drifting, flowing, beat-less style of music. But then again they could have just not liked MY  drifting, flowing, beat-less style of music!  :P  8)
