Music producers get paid? AudioMack started as a platform focused in Hip-hop music but branched out to other styles like R&B, Electronic and Dancehall. It is very similar to SoundCloud but has a cleaner user interface and best of all is completely free for musicians with no track limits. Whether you are a producer, singer or composer every AudioMack user can upload their tracks for consideration to get featured in their trending section, which translates to massive exposure to a wide audience. Starting in 2019 all creators will be able to monetize their work straight from AudioMack itself with no need for registering with a 3rd party distributor or publisher.
The name “SoundCloud” doesn’t really need any explicit introduction – I’d probably be having a hard time trying to find a musician who has never heard about it in his life. When the service was first introduced to the world 12 years ago (in 2007), it kinda revolutionized the way of publishing music online by creating a large, community-driven platform able to connect underground music creators with fans who were looking for new music to listen to. Anyone could upload almost anything instantly and there were always some ears to listen – no wonder that the popularity of the service quickly skyrocketed and there were quite a few big musicians whose careers took off from SoundCloud. But it was too beautiful to last forever.

NoiseTrade is a Nashville, TN-based service that offers a way for independent musicians to upload their songs and share their albums with fans for free, much like SoundCloud. The platform also offers a similar feature for authors, but I didn’t quite give it any more than a cursory glance, so will refrain from making any statements about it at this stage. While the platform aimed at authors is a relatively new rollout, the service for musicians has been in existence for almost a decade, having been launched back in 2008 by American singer-songwriter Derek Webb and a few other musicians. According to NoiseTrade’s official website, the platform was “designed to help artists build their audiences by distributing free music in exchange for fan data (email & postal code)”. NoiseTrade allows artists to upload their music that can then be downloaded by fans for free. In return for their free music, fans need to signup with an email ID and a Zip/Postal code and subscribe to an optional newsletter. Fans are also encouraged to share an artist’s work on social media and can pay the artists any amount of their choosing. NoiseTrade keeps a 20% commission, so artists get to keep as much as 80% of the money they receive from their fans.
TheFuture’s Mission. Producers are underpaid. We’re here to change that. Our goal is to incentivize music creation by supporting producers through a profit-sharing platform, unlike anything the music industry has seen before. The world would have a lot more music if producers were able to survive from their hard work. We’re tipping the scales by luring money away from giant record companies and streaming platforms and putting that money into the artist’s pockets. We’re able to do this in such a way that is not only attractive to the producers, but also to DJs and listeners alike. DJs need music, but they don’t want to pay for individual downloads.
