June 22, 2018 – SoundMachine, a premier music subscription service for business, has announced today that integration of its service is now available with systems manufactured by Control4 Corporation, a leading global provider of smart home solutions. This partnership will now allow commercial business owners to use SoundMachine directly through Control4 systems and manage music together with lighting, thermostats, shades, TVs and more, without installing additional hardware devices.
SoundMachine gives large and small retailers, restaurants, spas, or any other company looking to enhance their physical space the ability to craft a seamless, engaging, and on-brand music experience. The service provides full licensing for Public Performance within a client’s business environment in the U.S. (via ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, GMR and SoundExchange) and Canada (via SOCAN and RE:SOUND), with clients receiving access to professionally curated stations that can be mixed to create the perfect audio atmosphere. They can then schedule those customized mixes to match the mood throughout the day. Users can also upload promotional messages to play at scheduled intervals or exact times along with the music, and SoundMachine’s top-down content management system allows users to link an unlimited number of locations or users to one account, making operating the music and promotional messages a breeze. SoundMachine also recently introduced a new subscription tier titled Business Premium powered by Napster, which allows users to create an even more personalized sound with custom playlists starting from an artist or song, as well as hundreds of Napster’s own curated stations. SoundMachine can also create custom playlists designed specifically for individual companies.
SoundMachine brings commercial background music to the fore with a subscription-based service that gives business owners everything they need to create a seamless, engaging, and on-brand music experience in their stores, restaurants, hotels, spas, or other locations. Clients can choose from three levels of service, with all subscribers receiving full Public Performance licensing in the U.S. and Canada, access to SoundMachine’s collection of professionally curated playlists, and the ability to mix playlists to create the perfect audio backdrop, insert promotional messages, schedule different types of music for different times of day, and control music in multiple chain locations from a central account. Subscribers to the Enterprise plan can also request a custom playlist created specifically for their needs, and those who sign up for Business Premium powered by Napster receive access to an expanded catalog of millions of songs and hundreds of curated stations, along with the ability to create their own custom stations starting from a single artist or song, building a consistent mood. SoundMachine now serves more than 10,000 locations across several countries, with customers including major fashion luxury brands such as Loewe (LVMH Group) and La Perla; hotel, restaurant, and coffee shop chains; and thousands of medium to small businesses.
