ASCAP, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, the world leader in performing rights and advocacy for music creators, and LANDR, the world’s #1 automated mastering platform, announced today that it will provide ASCAP members with access to unlimited automated mastering.
This marks the beginning of ASCAP’s larger initiative to offer its 600,000 members an integrated member benefits experience with preeminent organizations, such as LANDR, that deliver services to music professionals. ASCAP will provide easy access to these services as it adds new exclusive benefits that align with member needs.
“Songwriters and composers are the heart and soul of music and ASCAP’s mission is to support them creatively and professionally at every stage of their careers,” said Elizabeth Matthews, ASCAP Chief Executive Officer. “Together with LANDR, we are offering them a valuable tool that they can use to bring their music to the world. In the future, ASCAP members can look forward to more best-in-class benefits that meet their needs and create more opportunities for them to succeed.”
All ASCAP members will be given exclusive access to LANDR’s Basic Subscription plus one HD WAV per month at no charge, including unlimited mastering of demos, live sets, DJ mixes, or even rough studio jam sessions. Unlimited free mastering means songwriters and composers can greatly improve the sound quality of anything they produce— even projects without a budget for mastering.
This benefit also includes access to LANDR’s latest smart sharing features. These enable songwriters and composers to privately and securely share their work with collaborators.
“LANDR’s mission has always been to support all musicians throughout their careers, which is of course perfectly aligned with ASCAP’s vision to represent, support, and compensate songwriters and composers. We believe firmly in fair compensation for music creators, and by partnering with ASCAP we’re in an excellent position to support that. By using our mastering service, all ASCAP members will be able to take their sound even further. Anything that helps bring more music into the world is always a beautiful thing,” said Pascal Pilon, CEO of LANDR.
LANDR was recently named by CNBC as one of the Top 25 brightest, most intriguing, young startups promising to become the great companies of tomorrow.
