I'm using Daywind accompaniment tracks on a release and need a mechanical license.If you have purchased Daywind backing tracks and plan to use them as an accompaniment on your release, then you will need to make sure that you have two separate permissions: Audio Rights - You need Daywind to give you permission to use their accompaniment track (a lease through Daywind) Composition Rights - You the songwriter/publisher/rights holder to give you permission to use their composition (lyrics/melody) Affordable Song Licensing is the company that helps you obtain the composition rights (known as mechanical licenses) that you need for your release. All you need to do is send us the names of the accompaniment tracks you are using and the number of CDs/downloads you plan on releasing.
I recorded songs at Daywind Studios and was told I need a mechanical license.If you went into Daywind Studios and received our information in your Welcome Packet, then you just need to contact us with the songs you recorded and the quantity of CDs you are manufacturing.
