What does it do?
Good Splits allows individuals responsible for divvying up song earnings to determine payment splits fast and easy. Simply upload your sales data, input percentage splits for each collaborator, and easily see who is owed what amount for the payment period of your choice—no math required.
Why Good Splits?
This app hides complicated accounting math inside a simple UI that lets you scan for the most important info and won’t overwhelm you with extra data. It’s not a payment tool (creators still have to issue those themselves) but it does help speed up the process.
Now independent creators just starting their careers can have the same accounting capacity and insights into their royalty streams as any established musician with a full accounting team.
Good Splits is free to use. That means you don’t have to pay a percentage of your earnings for accounting services—putting more money into the pockets of the creators who make the music. Power to the people.
Good Splits calculates master splits as well as US mechanical splits. Plus, it can show the breakdown of royalties owed for both copyrights. Genius.
Our simple CSV upload means you can get started right away the files you have on hand (think CSVs from aggregator services like Tunecore). Read our user guides.
It’s built to handle thresholds, expense reserves, and amounts owed to others (producers) subject to recoupment.
Plays nice with aggregator services Tunecore, AWAL, cdbaby, Distrokid, Symphonic, oneRPM and more. All you need is to bring your sales report .csv file from the service you use and let Good Splits do the rest.
Who made it?
Good Splits was created by Jordan Mattison—a music manager who’s been in the Nashville music industry for more than 15 years—and Coalesce, a full-stack digital agency. Together, they wanted to build a better tool for music creators that would let them bid farewell to their unwieldy spreadsheets and provide more reliability and transparency to their co-creators. The result was Good Splits—an app we hope will make the music industry a more equitable place.
