FMA NEXT is our project name for relaunching Free Music Archive. Focus: improve FMA's free to access music archive. Allow musicians to add more free music and premium content. Improve the look & feel. And last but not least: offer visitors free and premium content.
Most online media services make money from subscriptions or advertisements. FMA wants to participate in a new model: consumers sign up to one secure service for a fixed fee of $5 per month and get unlimited access to premium content on many platforms offering online video, gaming, magazines, news and music like FMA.
Don't worry! Free Music Archive is and stays free. But we think consumers are willing to pay for easy to access, premium content and the freedom to use many different content providers as opposed to just one. While premium content is consumed small amounts will automatically be transferred to creators and platforms like FMA. Fair trade!
