HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO UPLOAD SONGS TO STREAMING PLATFORMS?
Unlike other distributors, UnitedMasters does not charge a fee per release. With the SELECT plan, artists get unlimited music distribution for $59.99/year.
CAN UNITEDMASTERS GET ME AN ARTIST ADVANCE?
Yes, UnitedMasters gives qualified artists the option to apply for advances through BeatBread. BeatBread is a music platform that provides advances and royalties to independent artists. It's designed to help artists monetize their music and build their careers by giving them access to funding and other industry resources.
CAN I TRANSFER MY RELEASES TO UNITEDMASTERS FROM ANOTHER DISTRIBUTOR?
Absolutely - The first step is understanding if you’re under any agreements that prevent you from moving your catalog to UnitedMasters. Assuming that you are not restricted, you will need to prepare your catalog to manually upload it to your UnitedMasters account. Once your catalog is prepared, you’ll want to set up your releases as “drafts” to minimize any lapse in your digital presence. Be sure to follow the instructions here to transfer stream counts, set release dates for your drafts, submit your release(s) for approval, and request your previous distributor to remove their version of the release(s).
DOES UNITEDMASTERS OFFER FREE MUSIC DISTRIBUTION? IF SO, WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE?
Yes - UnitedMasters offers free music distribution with DEBUT, our entry level plan for artists to get their first tracks out on Facebook. Instagram, and TikTok. Artists signed up for UnitedMasters DEBUT can share music to social platforms for free while keeping 90% of royalties.
ARE THERE ANY FEES, AND DO I KEEP ALL MY ROYALTIES?
With UnitedMasters SELECT, you can release unlimited music, access Exclusive brand & sync opportunities, and keep 100% of your royalties.
