SoundSys

SoundSys is a back-office distribution system for Music Licensing Companies (MLCs).

About SoundSys

SoundSys is the recorded music industry-first shared, cloud-based fully scalable member management, repertoire database, matching and producer distribution system. It uses state of the art technologies for indexing, matching, and searching, and is compliant with the latest data supply formats such as DDEX RDR.

MLCs license the use of music for public performance and broadcast and distribute the license fees back to the right holders they represent. They need sophisticated IT systems that enable them to do this accurately and efficiently.

SoundSys provides a repertoire and rights management database, a processing facility for usage logs, as well as all the distribution and reporting systems needed by MLCs in their back-office work. SoundSys functionality provides flexibility to the MLC to create, implement distribution policy and schedule e.g., monthly, quarterly.
