Your own smart links and download gates on your own artist/label website!
This is not a wordpress plugin. The script is NOT SaaS ready and does not support user registrations.
For new buyers: SoundCloud do not currently allow new APPs to be registered. This means you will not be able to create download gates via their service. However, anyone who already has a SoundCloud APP that works with TuneVoyage can still use that feature without any problems.
TuneVoyage is a web based application and catalog, that combines two powerful marketing tools to help musicians, bands, labels and other content creators organically grow their fan base on various social networks by trading free downloads for social engagement and new followers (via download gates), convert more fans to streams and downloads by redirecting them to their favorite store or streaming service via smart links and keep track on the growth. This script is meant to be used by one band, label or artist to create a catalog of download gates and smart links for their own music and does not support user registrations.
Build With Popular Frameworks
TuneVoyage’s back-end is built with the popular PHP framework Codeigniter 3 and uses HTML 5 / CSS 3 / jQuery, Bootstrap 3 and Smarty for the front-end.

WHAT IS A DOWNLOAD GATE?
A download gate is a landing page for your music where you give fans free downloads in exchange for social support (following you on a social website, liking/reposting your content). Rapidly grow your soundcloud, mixcloud, spotify and youtube fan base!
WHAT IS A SMART LINK?
A smart link is a landing page for your music where you can list all of the stores and streaming services that it’s available in and convert more of your fans to streams or downloads. You can also see how many clicks each store can get, and see from what cities/countries people are streaming/downloading.
HOW DOES A DOWNLOAD GATE WORK?
For each download gate you can choose what download options to give to your fans. They can choose one of the platforms you have included for the gate and connect with their profiles. Once they authorize the connection they will automatically follow you on a given social website, repost and/or like your content (depends on your settings). After that the download will be unlocked. You can choose to display more of your social media profiles and encourage fans to visit after their download is unlocked (twitter, facebook page…).
TuneVoyage is really flexible. You can setup different download options and rules for different gates. You can also upload your files directly to your server or chose to redirect the fans to another service like zippyshare and dropbox, if you want to save space on your hosting.
HOW DOES A SMART LINK WORK?
You can add all the links to the different stores and streaming services, that your release is available in, and the system will generate a beautiful landing page with the cover you uploaded, preview (soundcloud or youtube embedded player) and a custom url you have entered. There your fans can see the list with all the stores and choose where they want to stream or download from. This way you can leave only one download/purchase link in your emails, youtube videos, soundcloud descriptions, blog posts and etc. Simple and effective!
Smart links also help you understand where your clicks are comming from and what are the most preffered shops.
WHAT IS A BRIDGE?
One of the most unique features, that TuneVoyage has is to combine download gates and smart links on one page! Some times artists and labels release their music for free, but also publish it on different streaming services (youtube, spotify, tidal) and music stores, for all of the hardcore fans who are always there to support! You can create both a smart link page with all of the links to stores and streaming services that the release is available in and a download gate. Then you can attach the smart link to the gate and create a “bridge”. Bridges are pages that allow your listeners to decide if they want to unlock the free download for social exchange or choose to stream/buy from one of the stores listed in your smartlink.
PHP 7.0 and above is recommended, MySQL 5.x, Apache server + mod_rewrite for the custom permalinks, cURL.
Optional for the download gates: YouTube/Spotify/Soundcloud/Deezer/Mixcloud API Client ID and secrets.
