“With MDIIO, our students will learn to use a platform that is exponentially more functional than anything else available in the market,” said J. Anthony Allen, CEO of Slam Academy.

LOS ANGELES, a rapidly expanding engagement marketplace and social community for songwriters and music professionals, is now the workflow platform of choice at Slam Academy, the Minneapolis-based school for multimedia music recording.

The new partnership will see Slam Academy students and instructors leverage the extensive benefits of Mdiio including access to its global marketplace.

As of September 1, 2018 Slam teachers will use MDIIO as the tool that manages daily workflow in their music composing, producing and recording curricula, and students will learn to understand and employ its many robust features, features not previously available in other systems.

With MDIIO’s powerful asset-management services students can store work tapes and finished songs; track syncs, cuts and splits amongst teams; and apply more than 90 points of metadata to every copyright, for ease of pitching their music to sync and placement projects. Collaborate with peers and manage syncs, splits, etc.

Each Slam student will receive 12-month complimentary access to the premium features of MDIIO. Those include MDIIO’s search and match services, real-time alerts and monitoring. Additionally, students will have access to MDIIO’s exclusive project placement opportunities. Songistry, which developed MDIIO, will also fund an annual student grant program.

“With MDIIO, our students will learn to use a platform that is exponentially more functional than anything else available in the market,” said J. Anthony Allen, CEO of Slam Academy. “Offering the next generation of industry professionals that level of expertise reinforces our reputation for immersive, internationally relevant education in all aspects of music production.”

MDIIO is a S-a-a-S (Software-as-a-Service) engagement marketplace and collaboration-networking site. It empowers songwriters to collaborate effectively, and to market and monetize their leading-edge original music with licenses for TV, film, commercials, streaming media and other projects.

“We designed MDIIO workflows and features to be the first social network, collaboration, engagement marketplace designed specifically for the music industry, supporting everyone within the music value chain. We’re thrilled to be selected to support Slam’s vision of delivering greater value to their student body and creating opportunities through the Mdiio marketplace.”
