Are you registered with ASCAP, BMI or SESAC and are unhappy with how
royalties are collected when you tour Italy and Europe?
Now there’s a new way to collect live event royalties and you’ll
get paid within 90 days from your gig with Soundreef.
Soundreef is a collecting society which offers online services and fair
royalties, with guaranteed quick payments to all right holders. Live event
organizers will also save up to 50% on what they’d usually pay their local
collecting society so it’s a win-win for all involved.
You’ll be able to monitor the royalty collection from your Soundreef
account and seven days after the gig, you’ll see the royalties for
every song you played – and we’ll pay this to you within 90 days.
