… With its user-friendly layout, easy overview of the important useable data, and being paid out in euros it‘s clearly visible that the platform was created with the idea of making it as easy as possible for an artist/team.No Sleep Management

I worked a lot with aggregators like Distrokid and Tunecore. But when there is a problem, I like to contact my aggregator directly. Make Waves support feels familiar and I love that!Ton van der Werf

A fair deal

Make Waves accounts are free. You can deliver your music to all the platforms without paying us anything upfront. You keep 100% of your rights, and we pay out 95% of the royalties directly to your Make Waves account.
You can request a payout from your account whenever you like. There are no hidden costs with Make Waves, and you really get 95% of the royalties received in your Make Waves wallet. We do not charge any extra hidden fees (unlike some other distributors seem to do...).
Being transparent about our accounting and having a 100% correct royalty accounting system that pays out every cent received is what artists deserve and have been missing out on for too long! The founders of Make Waves have a history of creating royalty accounting software for record labels and know how to get this right.
How does Make Waves operate?
We cover our operating costs through a 5% royalty share and from the first 4000 streams per release yearly. It does not matter if your release has ten or just two tracks, the deal is the same, no extra costs. Really 😉
At Make Waves, we are confident that we offer the best deal. Even if other services initially seem less expensive, after all the hidden extra costs and flaky accounting of our competitors, the payments you will receive through Make Waves are higher than any other music distribution service.
Our goal is to be the most artist-friendly and nice-to-use platform. Just try us out and see for yourselves if you like us!
