Introducing Stealth Opportunities

Posted by Mike McCready | November 2nd, 2010 | No responses

As you can imagine, when industry professionals make it publicly known they are seeking songs for an attractive opportunity they expose themselves to being emailed, called and contacted directly by hundreds of rights holders (you know who you are… and so do we – and that’s a “no no”). It is one of the reasons many industry professionals do not accept unsolicited material.

For some of our industry users, this has become unsustainable. To insure Music Xray continues to have the best opportunities for you, we’re introducing stealth opportunities.

What is a stealth opportunity?

Stealth opportunities are not listed on the site nor in our emails and we block search engines from indexing them. The only way to find them is by having your songs matched to them through our S2O service.


You upload your songs for free from the home page of Music Xray.

You will receive an email for each of your songs letting you know which professionals are seeking songs like yours.

Some of those opportunities may be stealth opportunities – which otherwise are not listed on the site and are only available to those whose songs have “matched”.

This method helps the professionals remain under the radar yet still able to accept songs that are close to what they are seeking.

There’s never been a better reason to make full use of Music Xray’s FREE ground-breaking automatic song to opportunity matching system.

For those who have already uploaded or imported their music, you will receive S2O digests and alerts which will also include stealth opportunities. There is no need to upload your music again.
