The Most Powerful Tool in the Music Business

Unlock Potential

Bechstein Classic automates your licensing processes and unlocks unused sales potential: Production music licensing has never been this simple and fast.

Import

Our human import manager handles everything in terms of content delivered to us, whether it’s delivered online, on harddisk or on CDs. The content is ingested and labeled with the correct metadata and additional tags necessary to meet the synch- requirements.

Promo Tool

Creating new products for the constantly evolving productionmusic market is a big challenge. At Bechstein Classic we use our IML Promo Tool for this purpose. It allows creating curated projects for film directors and advertising agencies. Easily create a compilation to each movie project and send a hidden link. Smart, fast and powerful.

Recordings Metadata

Every recording is unique, therefore every recording gets its unique designation in the database. Metadata such as territory rights, copyright info, tags, ISRC codes, territory restrictions, track titles, recording versions, and much more is added and refined.

Export

Dealing with big data-exports can end up in a mess. Bechstein Classic uses its Export Tool to convert and deliver classical music content to over 30 different partners worldwide.

White Label

Instant Music Licensing’s White Label solution offers a „1-Stop Licensing Shop“ branded under your label name. It helps to better target your customers’ needs and grows the visibility of classical music contents in the web.

The Terms and Conditions for the YouTube Content ID Monetisation

  • By submitting your recording for YouTube monetisation, you confirm that there are no existing agreements with any third parties to monetise your music on YouTube
  • You guarantee that you hold 100% of the rights involved in the YouTube monetisation service
  • Where any titles infringe the rights of a 3rd party, you warrant Instant Music Licensing GmbH (IML) and its partners immunity from any wrong-doing
  • IML reserves the right to reject any catalogue at any time from the YouTube monetisation service and other services (e.g. digital distribution), if you infringe any of the above terms

Important notice: If you upload your tracks on your own channel, you will receive a copyright claim notification from YouTube.
