New Artist Service Allows Musicians to Instantly Master Their Music with LANDR Embeddable Platform

NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TuneCore announced today a partnership with MixGenius, an intelligent audio technology company, to help artists release professional-quality music by offering fast and affordable mastering.  TuneCore is the first digital music distributor to integrate LANDR Instant Mastering, a new embeddable DIY mastering platform from MixGenius, into an artist's dashboard.

Built for the evolving music industry and growing independent artist population, the LANDR Instant Mastering gives musicians the ability to master their songs directly from the TuneCore platform in preparation for worldwide distribution.

TuneCore artists can now use LANDR's drag & drop simplicity to master their music within minutes and instantly preview the results. Mastered songs files are easily uploaded when the artist is ready to distribute the new music. Uncompressed WAV masters are available for only $9.99 per song.

"With the addition of the LANDR Instant Mastering, our newest Artist Service, we're able to provide our artists with the means to create the type of high-quality sound recordings that their fans have come to expect," said Scott Ackerman, CEO of TuneCore. "Partnering with MixGenius is a part of our continued mission to ensure our artists can access the best available tools for creating and distributing their music at affordable prices."

"Mastering is a key, yet incredibly time-consuming and expensive aspect of making music," said Pascal Pilon, CEO of MixGenius.  "We're thrilled to put LANDR Instant Mastering at the fingertips of TuneCore Artists and give them the opportunity easily and affordably improve the sound quality of their music."

MixGenius is an intelligent audio technology company headquartered in Montreal, Canada. Since launching in May 2014, LANDR has amassed over 100,000 users in over 170 countries. Over 110,000 songs are mastered per month, more than all the mastering houses in the US combined.
