Magnetracks Presents Vision for Indie Musicians and Rightsholders that Levels the Playing Field
|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:|
Vancouver, BC, Canada, Sept. 23 – Magnetracks (www.magnetracks.com), the cloud-based music catalog software, has unveiled an ambitious new roadmap for a platform that it calls revolutionary to how artists, bands, publishers and labels promote their music.
Magnetracks, a division of Greengate Media, has offered subscription-based software for artists or music companies to source, prepare, release and manage their music catalog for several years. Among its global subscriber base are indie artists, recording studios, labels and publishers. It has proven generally useful to anybody concerned with protecting, organizing, growing, and monetizing their music catalog.
However, with today’s announcement of the next stage in its evolution, Magnetracks is being positioned as “music’s control panel”; integrated with dozens of other well-known apps and services, and dedicated to accelerating the indie artist’s path from small player to household name.
Says President and founder Eliot Pister, “the burden on the independent artist or small publisher to constantly release, promote and distribute new music in today’s music marketplace is absolutely immense. Now we’ve made the first major steps toward relieving that.”
Adds Pister, “With this first phase, we see Magnetracks now as the single place a music rightsholder interacts with their entire musical ecosystem. Right from their Magnetracks account, they will be able to distribute music releases to the world’s largest streaming services like Spotify, streamline contract management through Box.com, engage their fanbase through social communites like Soundcloud and Facebook, and so much more”.
With this announcement, the Magnetracks platform has become what Hootsuite is for social media, or what Slack is for office communications. Pister says, “With the ability for musicians to manage their music and everything they do with it from one spot, it makes it easy to stand out and to spend more time doing what they love – making music. We’re very excited about where we are headed.”.
“This new release now includes built-in access to about 50 streaming services and apps like Spotify, Pandora, Google Music, Box.com and SoundCloud.”, Says Pister, “And our next release will include about a dozen other apps like MailChimp, TuneSat, and some performing rights organizations.”
