The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, in collaboration with LANDR, is launching a new member benefit that offers ASCAP affiliates access to unlimited free mastering services.
"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," ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews said in a press release announcing the initiative. "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."
The larger program, which holds 600,000 members, provides access to LANDR's basic subscription and one HD WAV per month with no extra fees. This package involves an infinite number of mastering demos, studio jam sessions and live sets. An extra bonus is the use of LANDR's smart sharing features for members to share their work privately.
"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," said LANDR CEO Pascal Pilon. "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."
