MUSIC DATA EXCHANGE
The Music Data Exchange (MDX) is a software application developed by SoundExchange in consultation with the RIAA & NMPA Best Practices Working Group. MDX functions as a central “hub” which facilitates the exchange of sound recording and publishing data between record labels and music publishers – labels receive the publishing data they need for their recordings, in order to get licenses and pay mechanical royalties.
