Summer Educational Weekly Webinar: Learn How to Clear Publishing Efficiently with MDX

Please join us for this week's summer educational webinar, presented by SoundExchange & MDX!

We hope you'll join us for this demonstration to learn how the MDX platform creates an easy way for publishers to provide mechanical and sync shares to labels before a recording is released. MDX has an easy onboarding process so that you can start using it right away and ultimately get paid more accurately and efficiently. Attendees will learn about how we built MDX to solve major industry pain points. You will learn who uses MDX and hear from other indie publishers on why they use it and how you can benefit from signing up.

This webinar is FREE for all AIMP members and nonmembers, thanks to a sponsorship from SoundExchange, but registration is required via Zoom.
