Create Music Group Announces App That Generates Split Agreements

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) Full-service music company Create Music Group has lanuched a new free mobile app that aims to eliminate songwriting disputes between writers, producers and artists.
SPLITS, the free app, which Create has been testing in the App Store since early this year, is available for download Here.
SPLITS makes it possible for songwriters to generate a split agreement – the document music publishers use to clarify individual contributions to a song, with just a few clicks, according to a press release.
“In the three years that we’ve been working with songwriters and artists, we’ve had to deal with thousands of tracks where the songwriting credits were either incomplete or where there were disputes which ultimately resulted in less royalties for everyone involved,” said Create Music Group co-founder Alexandre Williams who came up with the idea for SPLITS.  “We’re introducing SPLITS to the creative community as an easy, non confrontational way for creatives to agree upon songwriting contributions at the time of creation, all with just a few clicks right from the screen they spend the most time on everyday — their phones.”
SPLITS is supposed to replace what is currently being done with pen, paper and fax or the U.S. Postal Service.  To create a SPLITS agreement a writer simply has to:
  1. Open the SPLITS app and create a new agreement
  2. Add collaborators
  3. Set their contribution percentage
  4. SPLITS will automatically send a notice to the writer’s collaborators along with a snippet of the song.
  5. If the collaborators agree they just click “agree.”  If they don’t they make adjustments.
  6. Once all parties agree, the Splits Agreement is sent to the writers’ publishers with an email to each collaborator.
The creative community has been testing SPLITS for the last several months and is already embracing the app.
“The opportunity provided to writers through SPLITS to deal with publishing from anywhere, anytime right from their phones is a game changer,” says PittThaKid, a producer who has worked with Jaden Smith, 2 Chainz, Schoolboy Q and others. “Major respect to Create Music Group for making such an important & innovative app.”
Hit producer GooseTheGuru (Trippie Redd, Lil Skies, Chris Travis) said, “Man, if only there were something like SPLITS available back when I was coming up, I would probably have gotten credit on a lot more records by having this tool in my arsenal.  This is a powerful tool for songwriters, producers and artists to deal with songwriting splits right in the studio and avoid headaches later on.”
Other successful writers using Splits include C4, Young Chop, Chase the Money, C Note, Sonny Digital, Chop Squad DJ and Roccstar, according to the press release.
