What we do for our musicians
Summary: your music will be sold on the three businesses we run: as a library of music for the public (크레이지슬롯 사이트 www.seikowatchesformen.com), a music licensing service (iLicenseMusic.com), and as music for restaurants and retail spaces (MoodMixes.com). 50% of all gross revenue gets paid to you, you keep your rights and your contract with us is nonexclusive.
Selling Your Music
Licensing Service: we run 크레이지슬롯 사이트iLicenseMusic.com, a web site dedicated to music licensing and which features the entire Magnatune catalog. You receive 50% of the revenue we receive. For example, if someone licenses one song and pays us for a year, you receive $89 * 12 months at 50% = $534. This is now the main source of revenue for our musicians.
A music library sold to the public: we make money by selling $299 lifetime memberships to the general public at 크레이지슬롯 사이트. Musicians get 50% of the $299 fee, based on what each member downloads. Every time someone downloads your album, you get paid. The one time $299 fee is divided into a ten year membership.
In-Store Music: we also run MoodMixes.com, which provides music to restaurants, shops, hotels and more. All the music on Magnatune is also sold this way, and (as usual) you are paid 50% of any use of your music. Special reports we provide you show exactly which businesses are playing your music.
Full digital distribution to all major music services including iTunes: Magnatune can optionally distribute your music to iTunes, eMusic, Amazon and more. If you already have digital distribution in place, you can opt-out of this part of our services.
Non-exclusivity: Magnatune's agreement with artists is completely non-exclusive and you keep all the rights to your own music, so you can still sign wherever else you want
Exceptional audio quality: Unlike most online digital music sites, Magnatune offers its music in five different audio formats including CD-quality WAV files, so your music sounds absolutely fantastic. Other formats available include MP3, FLAC, OGG, and AAC.
Promotion and Publicity

Services to Musicians

Accounting visibility: Every download (both to consumers and for licensing) is logged in our database and visible to you when your twice-yearly royalty report is sent to you.
Music sold through affiliates: As an Internet-savvy label with a large, high quality catalog, we continually attract new business partnerships. As the company profile grows, so do our affiliates and your music is heard worldwide.
Promote Non-Commercial use: In alliance with the Creative Commons, we maintain generous policies around making low-fi versions of your music available for non-commercial use. Students, Film-makers in production, Remix artists and charities can all use your music for free as long as they credit you and are not making money off of it. This generates additional exposure, partnerships and distribution for your music.
We champion your music: We don't carry your music unless we love it and we plug your music to everyone we meet. We're proud of our selection and we make people listen to it.
We actually do what we say: A rarity in the music business, you'll actually make money off your own music because you will actually receive checks from us.
We collaborate with you: While our contract with you is non-exclusive, once you start receiving regular payments from us and start seeing results from our effort, we expect you to participate and regularly interact with us to help promote you, your music, and Magnatune. We aren't passive, and we don't expect you to be either.
We provide credibility by association: Magnatune is known all over the world for a highly selective catalog of music. Magnatune will bring you status and buzz.
We're succeeding and growing: We want thrive and make lots of money, just as you do. So far, things have been going well, and since our musicians get 50% of what we bring in, they do well too.
