Important Note on Placement Guarantees

At 52 Cues, our aim is to enhance your music for use in the production music industry through expert feedback and guidance. However, it's important to understand that placements are not guaranteed. The acceptance of music cues is ultimately decided by publishers, editors, producers, and other industry professionals, not by us.

While we strive to improve your chances through education and support, the production music industry is subjective and influenced by many factors outside our control. Therefore, 52 Cues cannot promise specific placement outcomes.

By joining us, you're investing in elevating your cue's quality and marketability, a crucial step towards potential success in this competitive field.
