I am very new here on Audio Jungle and I need help to figure out some very simple issues about published materials, Youtube content ID and royalties. I am sure that the answers must be somewhere in the forum, but as a beginner, I find it difficult to use this forum to search for such basic subjects.
I had thought that Audio Jungle was a royalty-free platform where you create music exclusively. After I joined, I saw that people add published materials and collect royalties through their PRO’s.
I am here as a PRO affiliated composer (with PRS) but none of the tracks I uploaded to AJ so far are published or registered with PRS. Simply because I don’t know what to do. So far all I have done is bounce the track from Logic and upload to AJ.
I have several albums specifically written for licensing and they are published by Tunecore and a few other labels specialised in sync. These tracks are registered with PRS with all tunecodes and ISWC numbers. My question here is; can I upload and sell licenses of these tracks here on AJ?
And the Youtube Content ID is another thing that I have no idea of.
I know a lot of people here know and apply these basic things. So can I ask your step-by-step to-do-list when writing and uploading a new track. Do you publish the track with a publisher first? Do you register the track with PRO without a publisher? What do you do regarding Youtube Content ID thing? etc etc
Any comment and advise will illuminate me since i feel a little lost. Thank you very very much!
