my soundreef experience


i've had an experience with soundreef id like to present.
i tried uploading 75 tracks, only 2 were accepted.
no problem.

just that, at the end of my first semester, in the list of
plays and associated earnings on radio channels, i had tons of plays,
some of the plays lists even had my name and track listed there - as if it was really played, the earnings were enormous - 7800 euros in total, for 2 tracks, one semester.

obviously this got me overexcited, although i knew it was absurd.

when soundreef finally responded to my mails,
they said its just a bug they know of and are working on it.

needless to say, i was pissed.
not only that i didnt earn that money, cuz obviously i knew it was absurd, but that they allow this error, which seemingly is not new,
to persist on their site.

also, some of the lists of plays had my name and tracks there, so i have no way of telling if that is really a bug too, or im just being scammed. since i am listed, there is no telling that they raelly played my tracks or didnt, except if i think its a bug too. but is it a bug, just because they say so? its just too big of an error and i couldnt accept that.

to me that is a like a lie, a scam.
i notified them to close my account.

do what you want, upload with them or not, but i know another guy
that got listed on those lists along with me, and i talked to him on fbk
and he has 104 tracks, and after on semester, he got zero plays.

this site now looks to me totally suspicious.

in my opinion, my rating is: unprofessionals, and possibly even scammers.

Same here , its a waste of time, no one can assure me how much and when the music was played , they can use it
and after tell you that they didnt played your music at all . You got no way to control that . I had a song played in 1080 shops, all over the europe, i got just 35 cents .
composers do all and get nothing actually. Same for All the others music services as well

I have 120 cover songs , and 9 originals by now . When I joined to soundreef , , I had " only " 120 cover songs . I don't have to tell you how many hours I spent with registering all these songs ....hoping finally I would get some money ....... A few Months later they told me I am "just" a cover song singer , and I will not get any royalty of my songs .
I wrote my first song and I asked them not to delete my account , as I have an original song.
Inspite of this, they deleted my account . This is my soundreef experience :-(

I can confirm that
No transparency
Terrible experience also as an alternative to a PRO like SIAE,SUISA, BMI or ASCAP.
