Haulix is a service you use to discreetly share watermarked
pre-release music with the industry's tastemakers.

  • Create a promo
    Fergie promo view

    Showcase an album by creating a promo with uploaded WAV or MP3 tracks, artist photos, PDF attachments and YouTube videos.

    We automatically generate a professional looking web page for your promo and your permitted contacts can use their desktop computer or mobile devices to listen to the music.

    Use our default design or customize how it looks by changing colors and uploading header and background images. See example designs

    You have total control over who sees your promos and what they have access to.

    You can set:

    • ...date the promo goes live
    • ...date the promo expires
    • ...number of times each contact can stream the tracks
    • ...number of times each contact can download the album
    • ...whether contacts can submit feedback or not

    Who are some artists promoted through you?

  • Invite people
    Fergie promo email

    Import your contacts and organize them into strategic groups.

    Give people instant access to your promo or send them an email invitation. Customize the email to match the promo design to encourage engagement.

    Haulix generates a special link and injects it into each outgoing email invitation. Your contacts click the link and get signed in behind the scenes.

    If your plan includes watermarking security, we inject multiple digital inaudible fingerprints into every track download/stream that trace back to the listener.

  • Invited contacts listen to your promo

    When a contact downloads or streams a track, they are automatically routed to the nearest Haulix media server for optimal performance. We have replicated storage and media servers in the U.S West Coast, U.S East Coast and Europe.

    Your contacts discover and manage promos from their own promo management screen. You can easily add promos to your contacts' promos screens, even without sending an email invitation.

    These screens are protected by a 4-digit passcode. They are free to all of your contacts and generated automatically by Haulix.

  • Mobile offline streaming

    If you allow promo downloads, contacts can download the zipped album and stream the tracks offline in their mobile and desktop devices - no special app required.

    Check out a video demonstration on how mobile offline streaming works.

    If downloading is disabled or the listener doesn't want to use phone storage, they can stream the tracks from within the promo screen itself.
