Someone recommended to me that I look into sync licensing for my synthwave music, as it's kind of "in" right now for games and TV. But I don't know shit about sync licensing...who is reputable, how it works, what I need to do, etc.

Anyone here have experience and want to help out a guy who feels lost?

Well theres a lot of Library Music companies who churn out this stuff like no tomorrow. With a lot of them you can probably just shoot them an email explaining that youre a composer and send them some material and if they like it then they might publish it.

Ive released a lot of throw away stuff to library music companies in the past for a little pocket change in my PRS invoices.

However, theres a difference between a library music company that sell music compilations online and a 'proper' Sync music publishing company. A proper music publishing company usually only work with specific artists and dont release any music online to anyone. You work closely with the publisher and they will usually give you briefs for specific campaigns, whether it be a TV advert, movie soundtrack etc. This is where the big bucks is at.

But its not as easy getting signed to a publishing company. You have to be a really good and versatile producer/composer and I dont think a lot of good publishing companies take on unsolicited demos. Not saying you cant give it a shot...

But for synth wavey stuff, id recommend looking at some library music companies.
