What is Adaptr?
Adaptr is an all-in-one platform to easily add hit music to your apps and digital experiences.
How does it work?
Qualifying startups and developers can sign up with a credit card, create playlists, integrate the SDK and configure their design, and then stream music for their users. We take care of the rest, from paying the labels and publishers, to tracking use.
Who qualifies for Adaptr?
Typically Adaptr is available to you if you have raised less than $7.5m in funding and your app is earning less than $4.5m in revenue. If your business is above either of those thresholds, we can get you in touch with the right people to license directly. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, Adaptr can provide your app with music as long as you are not violating laws, defaming people, or generally infringing on the rights of any third party. There are specific content and media types that will not be allowed to use this music. Those include: sexually explicit images, anything promoting violence or illegal activities, advertising tobacco or firearms, or endorsing any religious or political cause. You can see full details in the Terms and Conditions.
