What Artists Are Saying About AudioSparx

AudioSparx has created this opportunity and has allowed artists to reap the benefits. AudioSparx has features not available at other licensing web sites. Having clients fill out the cue sheet with the vital information prior to the download ensures that the cue sheet submission to ASCAP and BMI is in process. I have written for music libraries for over 20 years and being in control of my compositions and publishing and being able to check my stats every day creates a sense of artistic security never before known till I found AudioSparx."
