How much money does each artist receive?


Artists earn a share of the net revenue on the sale/license of their songs on SoundBlend.  Net revenue is sale proceeds less commission, taxes and transaction fees. Artists keep 70-90% of net revenue, depending on the Membership plan at the time of the sale.

The percentage split (share) of net revenue is determined the sharing agreement. See How Does Song Ownership Work?

 

For illustration:

Assume five single digital downloads are sold for $1.20 each.  The released track has two collaborators: a Pro Member (who a has agreed to a 60% song ownership split) and a Starter Member (who agreed to a 40% song ownership split).  The Song Ownership Split is decided upon by the collaborators through an electronic sharing agreement created at the time the song is published to SoundBlend.
