Services

SoundBetter's platform connects musicians - such as instrument players, music producers, singers, songwriters - with working opportunities worldwide.

This paid membership tier is called Premium Providers, and it has a monthly fee. Additionally, both free and premium users, when hired from the platform, are charged with a 5% commission fee.
