My music have been approved for PumpAudio, but you have to send your music to them on CD’s. I live in Denmark and sending my music with snail mail to New York seems so old-fashioned. Spending time and money on this don’t make much sense to me, I don’t even know if my music will sell on PumpAudio. The commission is also very low.
PunpAudio do however seem capable of selling music on their website and not that long ago (before they lowered their commission from 50%) many musicians recommended signing up. They might still be worth spending some time on, but personally they are not at the top of my to-do list.

sorry… also meant to ask about pump audio. Anyone with them? i was approved to send tracks (only on a cd (hassle!)) last year but have yet to get around to it.
Just created PumpAudio for the library list and moved your comment here…
I totally agree on the CD’s being a hassle and the low commission does not make them more attractive, but I have zero experiences with them. Like you I would also like to hear from people who are with PumpAudio
i tried twice to get my music approved with no success… so congratulations! 🙂
hopefully they will still accept it. so what is the commission rate with pump audio?
As you can see above it’s pretty low 35%.
i just sent a 19 song cd to pump audio. we’ll see what happens.
35% is lousy. That’s why i’m only sending 19 songs for now. audiojungle is also a pitiful 33% but at least i’ve sold more there recently. to me, 50% should be the lowest.
posted this on another topic …. but i had forgotten that you can approve your soundcloud tracks to be licensed through pump audio. i’ve had about 40 tracks on there for several months….. no sales. thoughts?
i tried to get approved once more with no success.
i think i will give up, given also david report! 🙂
i’m trying to send a couple of new audio tracks here…
… and i did it! 🙂
now i have to figure out how to fill the forms…
Never give up and you shall succeed! Good for you, I hope you get some sales at Pump Audio 🙂
I have finally uploaded some song on pumpaudio/getty images.
the procedure was all online, i submitted several wav files… everything should be ok i think…
now the question: how long is the review process?
do you get any notification on sales?
The first song was “accepted” but now… read what i have just received:
Congratulations, we like what we’ve heard, and one or more of your music tracks has passed the first, important stage to be represented by Getty Images Music. If your music fits one of our current needs, your tracks will be accepted into our collection and made available for licensing on http://www.gettyimages.com/music. The next step is highly dependent on the following:
· The quality of your music in terms of production, suitability of placement, strength of performance, etc. We process the highest quality music first.
– The particular demand for the style of music you’ve submitted. For example, well-produced holiday music is always in need and therefore will often move to the front of the queue.
· Our current backlog. Due to the success of our worldwide sales force and online e-commerce system, we receive many tens of thousands of songs every year.
Consequently, it may take a number of months (currently averaging six months) to fully process your submission. If your music fits one of our needs we will then add your music to one of our music collections (for example, Pump Audio, SoundExpress) and place it online.
let’s hope for the best! 🙂
Wow “averaging six month”s, that sure is a long wait compared to other sites. You sure are planing for the future with Getty 🙂
The waiting time at this library is actually really long (comparable to musicdealers.com) and can often take 6-7 months or even longer. Anyway, once you’ve got through all that the sales can be descent. Still the commission you have to pay is quite high.
Just my 0,5 cents – good luck!
I have now my music listed there after about 1.5 years from submission.
and still I had to ask how to login because it say my account is not enabled! :-/
6-7 months an 1.5 years, that’s just crazy. If you want to be at pump audio, you sure have to be patient. Way back I decided not to list my music at pump audio, because of the very low commission.
I really need to get back into composing, but first I need a few more hours at my current job. Right now I’m juggling 3 jobs, so I need to get that sorted out. Then it’s back to composing music. Can’t even remember the last time I completed a track and uploaded it to pond5!
I have however made a few sales at Tune Fruit lately.
Thank you for your feedback!
