How Does it work?
1. After you have ordered and chosen the type of distribution packages you want (see below) you will be informed of the upload instructions within two business days.
2. Be sure to upload your audio files according to the following formats: WAV or AIFF files, either 16 bit/44.1 kHz sampling rate or 24 bit/48 kHz sampling rate. These files must be the final mix of the song. We can not accept MP3 files because of their low quality.  The cover art in PNG format and preferably 600×600 pixels and a maximum of 1 MB.
3. We will listen to the song and decide if it needs to be processed or is readyfor distribution. Processing can be mastering or a better mixing. We will also determine if the cover is of good quality. If you hire us as a pure distributionagent, we will also listen to the music style itself. Where, we will determine if the music is within our framework as a record company. Where we take into consideration about the genre and the content of the lyrics. If everything is okay we will email the contract for signing.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I change an album when I have paid for it?
Unfortunately, when an album has been delivered, there is no automatic way to make changes on it. The best way to solve a necessary change is to take down your albums and upload a new changed version. We can make changes to an existing album, but unfortunately there is no guarantee that all stores will make the necessary changes. We do not charge any fee for these changes, but this route is generally not recommended as it takes stores weeks or sometimes months to process (if at all). But if you want to go further, let us know: contact us.

When and how do I get my money?
When a fan buys your music, sales and money from it will not be reported to the stores until about 2 months later. For example, if your song sells, the January sales will be reported in March and so on. Tune scores reported sales in the second and fourth Wednesday of each month.

Payments to your account is made once a month. You will receive an extract of statistics on how much your music has sold and from which part of world sales are coming from.

How long does it take for my music to go live after I paid for it?

  • • 24-72 hours in iTunes
  • • 3-7 business days to Amazon MP3.
  • • Approximately 6-8 weeks for Amazon on Demand, Spotify and MediaNet.
  • • Approximately 1-3 weeks for all other stores. Note that the time frames specified above are only averages – we can not guarantee when each store will make your music live

How will I know when and where my Release is live?
To see if your music is live in a store, go to the store’s website and search for music by typing the title and / or artist name. We will also mark your albums as “live” (in your discography page) within 1 week after your album goes live on iTunes. You can now check by searching for music in iTunes within 24-72 hours after you have paid for the distribution of your album.
