    Regarding the synch licensing program: What happens to music in your database that doesn’t score among the top 200 by previous sales? Are they still discoverable by the music supervisors? Easily?

      Hey Jim,

      Yes, all compositions have a chance of being found on the synch database if they are distributed by TuneCore and are part of a TuneCore Publishing deal. Music Supervisors can search not only by iTunes sales rank but by genre too!
