this is what u make producing trance

Just for your info, i got royalty statements for some old tracks..

people keep asking here these "how much i get paid if i get a release " questions so i decided to share latest roaylty statements. I have received about 2k before but here you can see amount of sales and what i got etc..

Track was in top-10 of audiojelly trance chart and original (kingdom fall) sold 250 copies.

--removed images--

But here's some info:

.....

Costs & Expenses
Mastering -30.00
Promotion -7.50
Remix1 -20.80
Remix2 -21.58
Remix3 -9.62
Cover Artwork & Banners -12.50
TOTAL -102.00
Expense Share (50%) -51.00

Digital Downloads
[Full Release] 12 7.90
(Original Mix) 245 117.81
(Remix1) 74.56
(Remix2) 33.64
(Remix3) 65.08
TOTAL 298.99
Royalty Share (50%) 149.50

+ compilation and streams 6.88 + 21.81 + 14.19

Total Royalty : 116.40

.....

This is the final statement of a great label. Not a signle bad word for a Alter Ego Records, dont know why they're quitting.
Total income from these tracks are about 2k euros plus publishing what gave me about 1k euros top of this

What do you mean by this? I haven't heard anything about Alter Ego Records quitting.

We are closing this company and this years set of accounts by the end of August 2012 which means you MUST submit an invoice using the link below to collect your royalites. You must do this by no later than August 17th.

I must again say, second best label i've ever deal with. Best is 5am or Five AM when garreth (emery) and alexis was leading it.

I made about $1,000 USD off famicom. That was nice. Most of it was from the Ferry Corsten compilation CD release. I imagine a release that goes on, say, an Anjunabeats CD compilation makes closer to 10K USD.

Alter Ego definitely started slowing down with their releases around 2008, so I'm not surprised to see this.


Thanks for sharing, Miikka.

Hey what does publishing mean(sorry hehe), physical format, licensing? Curious as it blows away your digital download royalties.

Yeah, I was also surprised they charged you for mastering, too. I haven't seen that in my (limited) experience. Even though they did cover 50% of it, apparently.

That's a bummer. I've got a track coming out on an AE compilation CD in A few weeks, and they've been advertising some competitions, etc., around the forums recently, so it does come as a surprise to me. They're definitely the best label I've ever been fortunate enough to work with, so it's really unfortunate to see them close their doors.

i just spoke to Blugazer, an artist on alter ego as well, who said that the accounts closing in August have to do with an ownership change that happened a year back but to his knowledge the current owners don't have any plans of closing up shop
