QTRAX is an ad-supported digital music service that provides free high-quality Downloads, Streaming and Radio via Mac and PC (and on Android and iOS from February 2015). The New York-based company now holds license agreements with a number of major and independent labels. CEO Allan Klepfisz has stated that maintaining compensation for copyright holders while capturing part of the 95 percent marketshare that continues to download music illegally is the ambition behind Qtrax's current model.


QTRAX plans to launch new Mobile Apps (for iOS and Android) to provide Free Streaming, Free Downloads, Free Radio.


QTRAX launched a new initiative, the ARTIST MANIFESTO, on 27 January 2015, aimed at providing music artists with better compensation for digital music consumed via its (and others) digital music services [1]
