– Our motto, “Sound Good. Do Good. Feel Good.” is more than a motto. We give a portion of profits to Unison Benevolent Fund, which supports Canadian artists and industry professionals in need
– We have instituted a Charity Program, in lieu of a Loyalty Program to reward our best customers with a credit on their purchases to put forth to a charity of their choice
– The system’s search functions are really easy to use, but also powerful. Search by mood, style words, or by bmp, keywords, metadata or ‘sounds like’ searching or by uploading a reference track to find a match!

LICENSING SERVICES
