IS ANYONE USING TUNECORE OR HAVE ANY REVIEW OF IT
« on: May 30, 2006, 01:18:50 am »

Hello,

It's been a few months now since Tunecore has launched and I have not found many reviews or more specifically user stories about them online. If you have used them to get your music on iTunes can you please tell me how it went? Have they paid you? What was your overall experience?

Anyone have any inside information about the company other than what they have on their website? It sounds like a great service but I want to be 100% sure things are going smooth with the company before I put several albums online with them.

This is their website:
http://www.tunecore.com/

Thanks for any new information!

Not yet, but I have the same questions as you.

Hopefully someone here will tell us.

"Smooth" in the music industry?

It does sound like a great service doesn't it? I am not using it yet, although considering it. It's a minimal investment for sure, compared to what you have to gain....which I'm sure is a shot in the dark....but it's not like you're going to be out your life savings.

I'd love to answer any questions you had. We've been doing just great, with thousands of albums registered, delivered to iTunes and other stores and payment coming back to the artists.

We're putting together a testimonials page, and response has been fantastic.

I have no better way of proving we're on-the-level than the fact that Fletcher is part of our team. He wouldn't join a fly-by-night organization.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks, hope to see you.

Just wanted to chime in here with my TuneCore experience so far.

I just finished up my bands first cd and ran across one of Fletcher's posts on TuneCore and figured why not. It seemed like a good deal and I have friends who are now in their 3 month waiting for CdBaby to get them on iTunes.

I uploaded the cd on May 7th (sunday night). It was completed with TuneCore by Monday morning and out of their hands. Tuesday May 9th we were live on Rhapsody and by Saturday May 13th we are up on the iTunes music store.

So far the service has been amazing. I will be able to tell you more in a month or so, but at this point I'm telling everyone who is looking for online digital distro about TuneCore.

You can check out the band here- http://www.stonedgrace.com

Hmmmm, i wish i had read this sooner.
I started off using www.tunecore.com but it got past 8 weeks and my music didnt show up, i then used CDbaby who were much quicker.

I wasnt happy paying 9% though so i took it off CDbaby and www.dittomusic.com got me live in 48 hours.
They are the cheapest i have found so far

I put my music online with Tunecore, and it's been great, I'm definitely going to renew for another year. I haven't sold a lot, but I did sell a little, but at least my music is out there and available on many legitimate music sites, and I'm familiar with the system from uploading music to receiving payments.  

Now all I gotta do is come up with better music !!
