Our mission

There is $1.4 Billion in unpaid royalties in the music industry every year.

This is largely because the music industry has no standard system for collecting music credits and royalty data and delivering it through its supply chain.

Sound Credit was the first platform for this and it was the most viral music software release in history.

Sound Credit is solving the problem of music industry credits and royalties, as well as the issues stemming from the heavily fractured music industry marketplace.

Ultimately, Sound Credit's mission is to help music organizations accurately recognize and pay music creators with easy-to-use technology and resources that improve the quality of music credits.

In Sound Credits 4-year history, it has proven the model for the future of music credits and attribution, while unifying the individuals who have worked in this area over the past 3 decades.



This release became the most viral music software release in history.  Leading the newly-formed Soundways, Inc. to rebrand with the Sound Credit DBA and pivot immediately to the music credits and attribution space. This was also the first ever implementation of the DDEX RIN standard in any software available to the public.



The Sound Credit desktop app was an important first post-pivot step to provide a practical solution for music credits. A massive new feature set was added, moving decisively beyond the plug-in.



Sound Credit was the first company to deliver a DDEX RIN file to a major label from the production process. This was seen as the ultimate milestone for the music credits movement.
