What's the Zing Music App?

The Zing Music App project was jointly created by Hong Kong Zing Music Technologies Ltd. Through integrating the killer function of music creation, the collaborative nature of the Internet community, and the indisputability of the copyright protection technology, the project aims to build an ecosystem comprising of collaborative music creators, clear intellectual property rights, and distinct interest systems.

The killer function of this project is the "composition function" in the Zing Music App, which recognizes the pitch and rhythm of the individual humming in front of the mobile phone through a precise algorithm to generate the main melody in the form of a stave. After the creation, the author can adjust the pitch and rhythm, and add sound layers such as harmony and rhythm of different vocals through intelligent matching principles. After composing the song, the position of the lyrics can be marked and any user in the platform can proceed to fill in the lyrics. After the lyrics are completed, they can be sang by the groups in the platform. Through the combination of strong technology and community effort, we can seamlessly link all aspects of music production.

In addition, there is a database that records the melody, lyrics, and singing portion, forming the intellectual property of each song. Through decentralized and irrevocable Internet technology, creators can record the unique music fingerprints of their works on their own database. As long as the fingerprint is successfully recorded, any similar fingerprints can no longer be submitted to the database, thus protecting the uniqueness of the creator's property rights.

Obviously, mere ownership of property rights does not really protect its creators. Real protection comes from the protection of the benefits produced by the property rights. Therefore, we have launched the Zing credit system in this app. App users earn Zing credits through creation, interaction, and propaganda, and they can use the credits to reward the creators. Fans can send personal messages to their favorite artists, and artists need to reply to earn the Zing credits. If an artist wants to expand the popularity of his work, he can use Zing credits to advertise on the platform and regularly push his work to the target audience. Zing credits can be sold, and the flow of the credits must be based on the records of the property rights in the database, so that the economic value of any work can be returned to the hands of its creators.

Example: Creator A wrote a song, Creator B filled in the lyrics, and Creator C sang. After which, Creator D re-sang and the song became viral thus receiving rewards from many of the users. Some of the rewards will be passed to Creators A, B and C through the built-in algorithm of the App. In this way, everyone can be assured of that their creation will not come to naught, and even if more talented people have adapted their own works, they can still be reasonably rewarded.

Through this app, we have overcome the huddle of professionally overpriced music creation, allowing the totally unrecognized composer, lyricist, singer, and broadcaster to all relate and promote their work, to distribute and market their own music. At the same time, we have solved the problem of intellectual property by using Internet technology. Finally, through the integration of Zing credits, we create an independent and coherent economic model in the ecosystem, the interests of each creators are truly guaranteed.
