Hey All,

I haven't been doing much in music lately, but got a payment from AudioSparx Radio for streaming, for the quarter.

Reads as follows....

RadioSparx Royalty Distributions - Period Totals 1,197 $11.40184 $4.56074
Earnings Per Stream: $0.00381

Now, as someone who is not promoting, or even bothering to do so, you can see that they take 60%, and the artist gets 40%, and you basically end up with 1 cent per 3 song plays.

To me, compared to the PRO distribution, where you have to be actually somewhere on the radar, it doesn't seem so bad.

Comments ?

cheers, niteshift

I had 10,000+ streams - $47.98. I look at this as just an extra perk. Hard to believe that many people stream my instrumentals.

It's all good Nite...

Good for you John. apparently you did better than Pharrell. He had "Happy' streamed 43 Million times on Spotify and received a check for $2,700. So it seems you are doing better than most.

Hey John,

You sure beat me. That works out at ..... 0.004798 against my 0.00381

Can you tell us which service ? or PM me if you don't feel comfortable. May as well get the few extra pennies. smile

cheers, niteshift

PS - sideline story, my wife did a sound job for the Sony backed film "Gabriel" 8 yrs ago, and has one (1) share in the film. She received a check for $18.97 yesterday, as the annual payment. NEVER forget to check your residuals, you just never know what may have been happening with your work.

Hi Nite,

A quick glance at CDbaby showed my streams vary from $0.0006 to $0.0098

That translates into $20 so far this year. You gotta start somewhere and build up momentum. One of the things I noticed is that one person streamed the same song 20 times in one day.

one cent for 3 spins would be a record breaking number.

If you do the math, it's nowhere near that much.

Just Plain Quotes
"Parents are notorious for telling you not to do something, but not telling you WHAT to do instead. So here are my thoughts. Don't bite the hand that feeds you, give it a manicure. Don't burn your bridges, go out and build more! And of course, Don't run with Scissors, use them to cut out your press clippings!" -Brian Austin Whitney
