DistroLock makes it harder for anyone (who's not you) to upload your original music to streaming services.
Here's how it works:
Upload Your Music For Free.
Upload your original songs to DistroLock, or just send us the acoustic fingerprint.
We Secure The Fingerprint.
We note that the audio is "locked" when music services ask. Only you can unlock it.
We also register your audio with other leading audio detection services.
DistroLock extracts an "acoustic fingerprint," logs it, and then deletes your audio from our servers. If you don't want to upload your music to DistroLock, you can generate fingerprints on your own computer using Chromaprint and just send those.
DistroLock can also register your music with leading public fingerprint databases. Some of these services can detect matches even if the audio has been sped up, pitch-shifted, or otherwise altered. Many music services utilize these services to block unauthorized releases, including YouTube, DistroKid, SoundCloud, Facebook, Vimeo, Twitch, and others.
