RouteNote is an online music distribution service that provies artists with instant access to a large proportion of the online market.
Using RouteNote is simple: artists upload tracks to the RouteNote catalogue and enter into a non exclusive agreement permitting RouteNote to distribute their music. They then select the outlets they want their music available on and within moments their songs are available for purchase across a range of sites. RouteNote’s cut is highly competitive, with the company taking only 10% of each sale.
The service is aimed at independent musicians looking at ways of distributing their music, and offers a variety of promotional support tools as well. Distribution partners include Napster, Snocap, Samsung Mobile and iTunes.
It’s a neat middle-man service with great rates targeting an interesting niche. If you’re an unsigned muso looking for a leg up, RouteNote is worth a look.
